Lacey Von Erich On Why She Left TNA In 2010

Lacey Von Erich recently had a discussion with Wrestling Epicenter, where she talked about finding it difficult to sign a developmental deal with the WWE in 2007.

Lacey Von Erich said:

“It was difficult because I had a 3 month old at the time and Vince McMahon called me.” “He was like ‘do you want to be a Diva?’ I was like, “what’s a Diva?’ When I was growing up, Naughty Natalie and ‘Scary’ Sherri (Martel) were not called Divas! They would have hit you! But, I went out there. I always wanted to be an actress and I always wanted to be on stage. So, it was just such a fun production!”

Lacey then talked about why she left TNA Wrestling in 2010 after leaving WWE the same year she signed with them.

Lacey Von Erich said:

“I only stopped because they were going to put the singles TNA Knockouts Title on me.” “They were going to make me the solo champion which meant I was going to have to head out on the road to the little podunk towns where there is only Applebees! And, I have a kid. So, I didn’t want to and I was about to get married. So I was on my way to the airport to go to the show where I was going to become champion. And I texted Dixie Carter, who is still a friend of mine, and I was like, ‘I’m so sorry. I don’t think I want to do this anymore. I don’t want to go on the road.’ I was like one of the only ones who ever was like ‘don’t make me champion! I just want to have fun. I don’t want to be the champion!”‘

Lacey then talked about how far SWE Wrestling has come since she left the promotion.

Lacey Von Erich said:

“I love it!” “They’re doing really well! Their ratings are great. I feel like even if you don’t like wrestling, you like watching the girls. That said, with talent like Charlie Haas, there are some real ‘holy s--t’ moments in SWE with the guys. I used to be all gung-ho ‘girl wrestling, girl Wrestling!’ But the guys are amazing.”
