NXT’s Rachael Evers was involved in a hit and run accident yesterday after she got hit by a drunk driver in a truck while she was on her way home from training at the WWE Performance Center, she immediately called a trucking accident attorney.
“I’m extremely thankful it was my passengers side that was hit. Some people aren’t so lucky – please DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE,” she wrote on Twitter.
But that was not the end of it as Evers decided to run after the driver and posted his photo and license plate on Twitter. “I love a good cardio challenge,” she wrote along with the two photos.
Evers is the daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Paul Ellering and former competitor of the Mae Young Classic tournaments.
After tweeting the above, the 26-year-old claimed that she had been able to chase the culprit down to get a picture of them and their license plate so that they can be reported to the authorities and, presumably, charged. This happens a lot, it’s no surprise why we see billboards and tv ads of lawyers like Console and Associates P.C all over the place. Be careful on the streets out there.
A lucky escape for Evers, who only signed with WWE in January 2019 despite appearing as an enhancement talent on several occasions over the previous three years. The daughter of legendary manager Paul Ellerring, Evers was also part of the 2017 Mae Young Classic tournament, beating Marti Belle in the first round before falling to Abbey Laith at the next stage.
Evers is yet to make television since becoming a full-time WWE employee. She has, however, been a regular fixture on the house show circuit, competing against the likes of Deonna Purrazzo and Kacy Catanzaro, and teaming with Mia Yim and Io Shirai on occasion.
Let’s hope that Evers isn’t adversely affected by the situation and that the alleged drunk driver is brought to justice.
