Lacey Evans Returns On 1/27 WWE SmackDown, Declares For Women’s Royal Rumble

Lacey Evans is back.

During the January 27 episode of WWE SmackDown, Lacey Evans returned to the ring after going “back to basics” while repackaging her presentation. Evans was victorious over Texas-native Jazmin Allure by using Sgt. Slaughter’s signature Cobra Clutch. Post-match, Evans announced that is entering the 30-woman Royal Rumble match on Saturday.


Evans hasn’t competed since November 11 when she took part in a six-pack challenge that was won by Shotzi. She returned to WWE in June after having her second child, but only competed in a handful of matches throughout the summer.

Evans now joins Liv Morgan, Candice LeRae, Rhea Ripley, Raquel Rodriguez, Shayna Baszler, Zelina Vega, Emma, Bayley, Dakota Kai, and IYO SKY as announced entrants for the 2023 women’s Royal Rumble match.
