Last month on Monday Night Raw, Lacey Evans announced that she was pregnant. It was swiftly reported that this was not part of her ongoing storyline with Ric Flair, with the former NXT star being legitimately pregnant.
This was obviously fantastic news, but Lacey Evans has revealed during her appearance on The Bella Twins’ podcast that she actually felt guilty after finding out she was pregnant because she would have to leave WWE for a while:
“Obviously they were so supportive of even the thought of extending my family and having another baby. For a couple months, we tried. I’m taking pregnancy tests and my daughter is crying because it’s negative, negative, negative, negative, negative. She’s finally on her knees praying to God because she thinks He’s the one who will decide when it’s time. Then all of a sudden, Vince has this idea with the whole storyline. I was like, alright. Everything has been negative. I’ll get back in the game. Sure enough, Sunday, at 8:15, I said I’ll just continue to take pregnancy tests for obvious reasons. Sunday at 8:15, it was positive and it was one week to the day of Elimination Chamber. I was like, this is great, but, damn it. There’s guilt. You feel guilty because there are so many people working for these storylines, from the writers, to Charlotte, to her father. But, what can you do? It took me from 8:15 to 8:40 to figure out how to write that up and inform the powers that be that this is where we’re at.”
This comes after it was actually reported that WWE was planning on having Lacey Evans defeat Asuka for the Raw Women’s Championship at Elimination Chamber, meaning Evans’ pregnancy will have changed some major WWE WrestleMania plans.
