Jim Cornette has had his say on the current WWE booking of Lacey Evans that has Cornette wondering “who did she p*ss off?”
On SmackDown in Salt Lake City, Utah, Lacey Evans was in action in her first singles match on the show in three months as she squared off with SmackDown Women’s Champion, Liv Morgan.
Morgan picked up the win in a hard-fought contest after nailing Evans with Oblivion but the champion did not stop there. Perhaps sending a message to Ronda Rousey who she will meet in an Extreme Rules match at the eponymous live event, Liv Morgan broke out the tables, sending Evans through one at ringside.
Speaking on his Experience podcast, Jim Cornette had his say on the match and expressed his confusion about how Lacey Evans is currently being booked as he sees many positives in the star:
“Who did Lacey Evans p*ss off? That’s my question. Because I don’t know that I’ve seen a more talented female performer booked in such ridiculous, sh*tty ways ever from any company.”
“What are you supposed to think about her? They had her do those promos. Again, part of this I’m sure was Vince and some weird Vince idea that he had. They had her do the promos as the abused child and the military hero and the determined young woman which all led up to her being a heel. Because for some reason, and she’s great as a heel, but now they’re using her as f*cking cannon fodder for this Liv Morgan experiment of trying to make people believe that Liv Morgan is now or ever has been, or should be a professional wrestler.”
“So, Lacey Evans, she looks great. She’s got the size, she looks like a f*cking athlete. Her work looks pretty good, she’s got a tremendous heel attitude and great body language when she’s snatching the girl by the hair and taunting her and the f*cking trash talking. And she did what she could in this to make Liv Morgan look like she belongs somehow in the f*cking ring. I’m not saying that she accomplished that but she did what she could.”
“I can see Lacey Evans as the heel that’s being presented here without the weird backstory. Being on top of the female roster versus Charlotte or versus Bianca or versus Becky or versus Rhea or any of the, you know, the upper echelon women.”
