Lance Storm says it’s ‘completely asinine’ to turn Lacey Evans heel after recent vignettes

During the latest Figure Four Daily at, Bryan Alvarez and Lance Storm discussed Lacey Evans and WWE’s plans to turn her heel after airing vignettes about her real-life hardships and overcoming them.

Storm said, “If she is in fact going to be a heel off the telling of these stories, I think it is completely asinine…I have seen countless Twitter interactions between Lacey and a sh*tload of fans that talk about how much these promos have meant to them and how much of an inspiration she is and how great seeing someone on TV share stories…she’s responding to them all and it’s just this really great babyface interaction and this feel good stuff how one person’s hardships and overcoming of it can provide hope to so many people which is this great babyface quality. She’s actually pretty talented too so she can get over great as a babyface so if they are in fact turning her heel immediately off the heels off these vignettes, then I’m like Bryan and I just want to bang my head against the wall.”

Bryan Alvarez said he had no issue with Evans eventually turning heel again but coming off these vignettes, this is not the time and this is WWE’s time to use her as a babyface.

As noted last week, when ring announcer Samantha Irvin said that Evans wanted fans to stand up and show proper respect, that line came from Vince McMahon and he has used that line countless times over the last few decades for heels. Storm noted that the line was also used for him when he was in the Team Canada stable in WCW.

Storm said, “They can’t follow through with that, they can’t…I was back at my hotel Friday night and I caught some of SmackDown live and when they did the ‘please rise and show her the proper respect’ I’m like that was my gimmick when I was in Team Canada!”

Evans is moving back to the Raw brand and it should become more obvious soon that she is indeed a heel.
