The women took center stage during the NXT tapings, with a cage match that pitted Shayna Baszler versus lo Shirai for the NXT Women’s Championship. Shirai would lose the bout, and once it was over fans would see her turn on Candice LeRae, as she believed her friend was the reason for the loss.
Wrestling Observer Radio’s Dave Meltzer chimed in the heel turn stating LeRae was the perfect candidate for lo Shirai to turn on, as everyone loves Ms. Johnny Wrestling.
– Speaking of the WWE’s women’s division, Lacey Evans has been getting a major push on Monday Night RAW since her official arrival post-Wrestlemania season, standing tall within the title race picture with yet another chance at the Red brand’s women’s championship come the Stomping Grounds pay-per-view set for Sunday June 23rd when she’ll face Becky Lynch.

As per the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the “Lady of WWE” has a big WWE representative working pretty closely with her right now, and that is Dana Warrior. In fact, Warrior is said to be “hands on” with Lacey.
Whether or not this is the reason for Evans’ massive push is unknown; however, WON did state that Dana is working heavily with Lacey when it comes to her promos.
The report also noted that Warrior has a key role within the company’s creative process currently, so that fact that she is working closely with Evans could be a very good sign for Lacey moving forward. Only time will tell if Evans can successfully capture her first-ever gold in the WWE, but she sure is giving “The Man” a run for her money.
