In the Marines, she earned a bachelor’s degree and even started her own construction business while on active duty. She was introduced to professional wrestling as a Marine through a Staff Sergeant who promoted independent shows on the side.

In 2014, Estrella-Kadlec started training to become a professional wrestler at the American Premier Wrestling training facility in Georgia. She made her debut for the promotion that year and later won the company’s World Heavyweight Championship. Macey wrestled on the independent scene until 2016.

Lacey Evans’ WWE Contract

In April 2016, Estrella-Kadlec signed a contract with the WWE. She made her wrestling debut at a NXT house show battle royal that was won by Ember Moon. A few months later, she made her televised debut in a tag team match with Sarah Bridges against Peyton Royce and Billie Kay. In 2017, she was assigned the ring name, Lacy Evans and was used mostly as a jobber for various competitors.

Lacy Evans competed in the 2017 Mae Young Classic tournament losing in the second round to Toni Storm. Throughout 2017 and then 2018, she was victorious against multiple competitors including Dakota Kai and Candice LeRae.

Evans’ Main Roster Debut

Until 2019, Lacey Evans performed on NXT and was then brought up to the main roster alongside EC3, Otis, Tucker, Nikki Cross, and Lars Sullivan. She made her main roster debut as entrant number one in the 2019 Women’s Royal Rumble. Lacey lasted over 29 minutes eliminating Billie Kay and Peyton Royce before being eliminated herself by Charlotte Flair.

In May 2019, Lacey Evans had her biggest feud against the RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch but she was unable to win the championship. In the WWE 2019 draft, Evans was assigned to SmackDown. She feuded with Bayley for the SmackDown Women’s Championship but was also unsuccessful in her pursuit of the title.

Lacey Evans was drafted to RAW at the October 2020 WWE Draft.

Lacey Evans’ New Storyline, Pregnancy

On January 4th, 2021, Lacey Evans started a storyline with Ric Flair when, during a match against Women’s Tag Team Champions Charlotte Flair and Asuka, Evans flirted with Flair.

During the following weeks, Flair managed Evans which was meant to distract his daughter, Charlotte. On February 15, Evans’ real-life pregnancy was announced and incorporated into a storyline that night that implied Flair was the father of her child.

Lacey Evans was scheduled to face Asuka for the RAW Women’s Championship at Elimination Chamber but the match was cancelled due to her pregnancy. The storyline with Flair was also cancelled. On April 8 2022, Lacey Evans returned to WWE television on Friday Night SmackDown. Evans returned to the show as a face in a vignette talking about her life, but she was drafted to RAW as a heel character.

Weeks later, she was moved to SmackDown again. On the June 10 episode of SmackDown, Evans made her in-ring return, turning again into a face character, defeating Xia Li to qualify for the Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match. At the event, she was unsuccessful in winning the match. On the following episode of SmackDown, Evans turned heel when she berated the fans and attacked her tag team partner Aliyah.
