* LiteralAssKicking: On the receiving end of one; Wrestling/BeckyLynch kicked Evans in the ass at ''Extreme Rules 2019'' while Evans was showing off the fact that she had "SETH" (for Wrestling/SethRollins, Lynch's boyfriend) inscripted on the rear end of her trunks.

* VillainousCrush: During her and Wrestling/BaronCorbin's feud with Wrestling/SethRollins and Wrestling/BeckyLynch, Evans seemed to take an interest in Rollins, going as far as putting "Seth" on her wrestling gear at the two teams' mixed tag team match at ''Extreme Rules 2019'' (in the ''rear end of her trunks'', no less), and at one point during said match when she had the opportunity to interact with him, rather than attack him, she took the oportunity to caress his bare chest. It should be noted that it was entirely one-sided (Rollins showed no interest in her, and the aforementioned stunts left him clearly embarrassed), and granted, Evans seemed to do it most likely just to mess with Lynch, but still.

Added DiffLines:

* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The girly girl to Wrestling/BeckyLynch's tomboy in their feud after ''[=WrestleMania=] 35''. The two are "The Lady" and "The Man" respectively. With Becky's aggressive persona looking to be ground-breaking in the women's division and Lacey's SouthernBelle-cum-AlphaBitch persona that appears to be a throwback to TheForties and [[TheFifties '50s]], they couldn't {{foil}} each other better if they tried. Even better is how this dynamic is fully [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] between the two, with Lacey arguing that her mission is to bring "class" back to the women's division that Becky is ruining by being a bad example for young girls, and even making barbs about Becky being a "typical man".

She trained and began her career on the independent circuit in Georgia. She started working for WWE in their [[Wrestling/{{WWENXT}} NXT]] developmental territory in 2016. She also participated in the inaugural ''[[Wrestling/WWEMaeYoungClassic Mae Young Classic]]''. She debuted on ''Raw'' in December 2018, where she later feuded with Wrestling/BeckyLynch.

!!!"The Sassy Southern Tropes":
* ActionMom: She has one daughter.
* AlphaBitch: She claims to be on a mission to bring "class" back to the women's division, which seems to consist of nothing but her acting like this.
* AmazonianBeauty: Especially on NXT, both the fact that she was well-toned ''and'' that she had old-timey pin-up looks [[https://www.themix.net/files/2019/02/tumblr_ownhgtYxly1rmv1vdo1_400.gif were emphasized.]]
* AnachronismStew: The style of her attire is straight out of the 40's or 50's, and her theme song has a 90's sound to it.
* ArchEnemy: She positioned herself as Wrestling/BeckyLynch's most important enemy on the Raw brand after Lacey was called up from NXT and Becky won the Raw Women's Championship.
* BoringButPractical: In a universe that runs on SerialEscalation, Evans (despite having more impressive capabilities in her own arsenal) opts to end matches by simply punching her opponent in the face really hard.
* {{Eagleland}}: Her outfits and demeanor invokes Type 1, although in late 2017-2018 she turned heel and edged much closer to Type 2.
* InterruptingMeme: Since moving up from NXT, her randomly showing up during matches and in-ring segments (and doing pretty much nothing else besides walking out on stage, waving to the crowd, and leaving) has become one of her defining features. Finally changed it up the night after ''[=WrestleMania=] 35'' by socking Wrestling/BeckyLynch in the jaw.
* NotSoDifferent: Despite her gimmick being that of a "classy" lady who considers everyone she dislikes as "nasty", her put-downs on Twitter can actually get quite, well, nasty and lewd, bordering on GettingCrapPastTheRadar (if not breaking the radar), including calling Wrestling/BeckyLynch "Becky No Balls,"[[note]]This actually raised a little controversy, but nothing mayor came from it as she stopped saying it just as quickly as she began using it.[[/note]] and then there's her comment after [[GroinAttack low-blowing]] Lynch's boyfriend Wrestling/SethRollins at ''Stomping Grounds'':
-->'''[[https://twitter.com/LaceyEvansWWE/status/1143025709314527237 LaceyEvansWWE:]]''' The only thing I expected was [[TeenyWeenie alot more]] during that nutshot sweetheart... No wonder why you call yourself a man. You have no choice.
* OneHitKO: "The Woman's Right", which is basically punching her opponent in the face really hard.
* PunnyName: "The Woman's ''Right''" is literally her giving a right-hand to her opponent.
* RedBaron: "The Lady" (on NXT it was "The Lady of NXT", on the main roster is "The Lady of WWE). On the main roster, she also gained "The Sassy Southern Belle".
* SemperFi: Was a U.S. Marine in real life before becoming a professional wrestler, which was mentioned by Evans herself on a June 2019 episode of ''Raw''.
* SouthernBelle: Billed from South Carolina and her ring gear and persona has elements of this. Her RedBaron on the main roster is actually "The Sassy Southern Belle".
* StatuesqueStunner: She's 5'8.
* {{Tuckerization}}: Her "Lacey Evans" ring name [[https://www.postandcourier.com/sports/from-the-marines-to-the-mat-sky-is-the-limit/article_3d960626-89a1-11e7-b4e0-0b483e135067.html is her sister's real maiden name.]] Plus, the lady's own real name is Macey, meaning that her own maiden name was ''M''acey Evans.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Her InterruptingMeme of walking out on stage during matches during the first few months of her call-up to the main roster actually caused disastrous results to wrestlers who got distracted by it, such as [[Wrestling/KanakoUrai Asuka]], who lost a match to Mandy Rose (and subsequently gave Rose a match for Asuka's [=SmackDown=] Women's Championship), and Wrestling/{{Elias}}, who ate a RKO from Wrestling/RandyOrton at ''Fastlane 2019'' while staring too long.
