Hometown: St. Paul, Minn.
Style: Striker, powerhouse
Returning for her second Mae Young Classic, “The One Woman Minnesota Wrecking Crew” Rachel Evers brings world-class strength and a Hall of Fame pedigree to the proceedings. The daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Paul Ellering and a protégé of Lance Storm, Evers medaled in powerlifting before pursuing sports-entertainment. She puts her strength to good use inside the ring, whether demolishing foes with fallaway powerbombs or an innovative modified spinebuster she calls the Graveyard Smash.
Don’t let Evers’ irrepressible grin (there’s a reason she’s also called The Queen of Strong Smile) fool you. Evers might look happy-go-lucky on the surface, but underneath lies an intensely competitive, dangerous skilled and incredibly strategic warrior who won’t stop until she makes her mark in WWE.
