• WWF Legend’s Daughter Left TNA In 2010 Because They Were Going To Book Her To Be The Champion
Lacey Von Erich, daughter of WCCW/WWF Legend ‘The Texas Tornado’ Kerry Von Erich, was recently interviewed by Wrestling Epicenter, where she talked about her 2007 WWE developmental deal, as well as her 2009-2010 run with Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action!
Here’s what Lacey had to say on why she ended up leaving TNA:
“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!‘”
Her father, former WWF Intercontinental Champion Kerry Von Erich, passed away on February 18, 1993 when Lacey was only 6 years old.
