Lace Evans recently talked to The Sun about a wide variety of topics including her idea of feminism, if Becky Lynch could cut it as a Marine, and if WWE is as taxing as her military service.
Check out highlights below:
If Becky Lynch could be a Marine:
She’s a tough broad, I’ll give her that. But do I think she has what it takes to be United States Marines? No, I don’t.
I think this is more her style – she’s a superstar. In the Marine Core you’re not. You’re working as a team. But who knows? It’s three months of boot camp. I’m sure she’d give it hell trying.
On being a badass woman:
You don’t want me to put my boots back on because I’m not afraid of mud and guts. However, I’m also a lady – I cook, I clean, I’m a mother, I’m a wife and I take pride in every bit of that.
I believe women should be OK with their feminism and be OK with their beauty. And I believe that if a woman wants to make sure her husband has a hot meal when he gets home, that’s just fine. I can bake a pie just as good as I can fire a weapon. Women are bad-ass.
In my opinion, women today are forced to do what the men can do and outshine the men, to the point they’re forgetting the power and beauty of what woman are.
The Lady of WWE will not let you forget that women are strong. We can cook and clean and be mothers – and also kick your ass. That’s what Lacey Evans stands for – the all-American woman.
On WWE pushing her to the limit:
We’re pushed to our limits, just like in the military. And I’m thankful I got that military training. I am convinced without a shadow of a doubt, there’s nothing I can be faced with at this point in my life that would ever make me back down – not physically, mentally, or emotionally. I know what I’m capable of.
