As we reported some time ago we have been told WWE Superstar Lacey Evans is set to face Asuka for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 35.
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross addressed this rumor on The Jim Ross Report and gave his views on this situation.
On rumors of Asuka vs. Lacey Evans at WrestleMania 35:
“Apparently, Lacey Evans is in line for the old proverbial push. You all like to talk about who’s getting their push. I think this. I said this when I met her, Lacey Evans, before the Mae Young Classic #1, she has everything. She has an amazing look. Her background is absolutely unduplicated. She’s a marine drill instructor for real!
She’s extremely athletic, but here’s the thing. She needs more time to learn how to wrestle. I’m not saying, ‘she sucks,’ but for her to be at a level of an Asuka, or a Charlotte, or any one on the top, top echelon, which is where WWE apparently sees her, Lacey, then she’s going to need to work on her game.”
