Lacey Evans reportedly returning to WWE TV, potential NXT call-ups

The 32-year-old has been out of action since February 2021.

Lacey Evans is expected back in WWE shortly and there are several names from NXT who could be called up to the main roster in the near future.  

According to a report from PW Insider, Evans is slated to attend Friday's SmackDown in Milwaukee. She has been away from the company since announcing her pregnancy during the February 15, 2021 edition of WWE Raw. At the time, she was involved in a storyline where she was aligned with Ric Flair and feuding with Charlotte Flair. 

Evans announced the birth of her second daughter on October 16, 2021. 

According to a report from Fightful Select, numerous NXT talents have been pitched for potential call-ups to the main roster. Gunther and Marcel Barthel from Imperium have been discussed as possibly heading to Smackdown. Fabian Aichner, who walked out on Barthel in a match against the Creed Brothers this week, is not expected to be called up along with them. 

Raquel Gonzalez is also believed to be heading to the main roster. Her and Dakota Kai dropped the NXT Women's Tag Team Championships to Toxic Attraction on Tuesday's show. 

LA Knight's name has been discussed as possibly being called up to Raw or SmackDown as well, although his situation is said to be less certain than the others. There has also been talk of him being used as a manager.
