Macey Estrella-Kadlec (née Evans; born March 24, 1990) is an American professional wrestler and former U.S. Marine currently signed to WWE, where she performs under the ring name Lacey Evans.
Evans trained under Tom Caiazzo at the American Premier Wrestling training facility in Statesboro, Georgia. She made her debut for the promotion in 2014, later winning the company's World Heavyweight Championship.
On April 12, 2016, it was announced that Evans has been signed to a WWE contract. She made her wrestling debut at live event, on October 20, in a battle royal, which was ultimately won by Ember Moon. Three months later, in her first appearance on NXT, Evans teamed with Sarah Bridges in a tag team match which they lost to the team of Billie Kay and Peyton Royce. Throughout 2017, Estrella was given the ring name Lacey Evans, and she was used mostly as a jobber to various competitors.
In June, Evans was announced as one of the first four participants competing in the inaugural Mae Young Classic. Evans entered the tournament on July 13, defeating Taynara Conti in the first round, but was eliminated from the tournament in the second round by Toni Storm the following day.
On the January 17, 2018 episode of NXT, after she defeated Aliyah, Evans established herself as a villainess as she complained to NXT General Manager William Regal for allowing "the lowest forms of societal trash" like Nikki Cross, Ember Moon, and Kairi Sane to compete in the women's division. In April, Evans was placed in her first feud with Sane, as the two exchanged victories and attacked each other throughout the next few weeks. Eventually, Evans lost to Sane on the June 6 episode of NXT, in a final match between the two, to end their feud. Throughout the rest of the year, Evans started a winning streak, defeating the likes of Dakota Kai and Candice LeRae. In December, after she had defeated Xia Li, Evans was announced as one of the four women who would compete in a fatal-four way match to determine the number one contender for the NXT Women's Championship, however, the match was won by Bianca Belair.
On the December 17, 2018 episode of Raw, Evans was announced as one of the six NXT wrestlers that are about to be moved to the main roster to "shake things up". In her main roster debut, Evans lost to Natalya in a dark match on the January 7, 2019 tapings of Main Event. On January 27, at the Royal Rumble event, in what was her official main roster debut, Evans entered the women's Royal Rumble match at number 1, lasting 29 minutes and 21 seconds, eliminating The IIconics (Billie Kay and Peyton Royce), before she was eliminated by Charlotte Flair.
Estrella-Kadlec is a former U.S. Marine. Estrella-Kadlec served as a military police officer with the Special Reaction Team (a specialized unit similar to SWAT). She enlisted at age 19 and served for five years, earning a bachelor's degree and starting a construction business while on active duty. Estrella-Kadlec was also introduced to wrestling while in the Marines through a staff sergeant who promoted independent shows on the side, who first invited her to a show and then booked her to wrestle him in the main event of the second show she attended.
According to ESPN journalist Kate Richcreek, Estrella-Kadlec was "raised in a home torn by depression and drug and alcohol abuse," and at times while growing up had to live in tents due to her parents' legal problems. Her father, who had entertained thoughts of becoming a wrestler but never acted on them, died of a drug overdose before she got her WWE tryout. She and her husband started dating when she was 14, and they have a daughter together named Summer. Estrella-Kadlec's ring name is a reference to the full maiden name of her sister, Lacey.
Evans made her video game debut as downloadable content in WWE 2K19.
