A surprising turn of events was Monday's announced return of Lacey Evans to action in the ring at WWE Raw.
During an episode last week, WWE announced that Evans would be fighting for the first time since her return from maternity leave. WWE recently launched a series of five vignettes to reinforce Evans' return to WWE TV. The series ended earlier this month with SmackDown and Evans, which contained a new theme song, which was then introduced to a live audience in big babyface pop. Despite his Blue Brand appearance, Evans was later moved to the Raw grid inside, and the report indicated that he would work as a heel.

There was no mention by the Raw announcers as to why Evans didn’t compete this week. All indications were that WWE wanted the former United States Marine to make her big return on the special Memorial Day episode. It now appears her comeback will be saved for a later date.
For what it’s worth, Evans was tweeting before the live telecast of Raw, stating through one post that her “GRAND MARSHAL duties got me laid up.” She also shared a photo of herself resting with ice packs on her biceps.
Evans was the Grand Marshal for Sunday’s NASCAR race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Lacey Evans has not fought since February 15, 2021, where she and Peyton Royce lost to Asuka and Charlotte Flair.
