‘Canada Is Terrible’: WWE Wrestler Lacey Evans Posts Video Of Edmonton Traffic Stop

A video of a routine traffic stop in Edmonton has gone viral after a WWE wrestler posted it on her Twitter account, but she doesn’t want people attacking police officers.

Wrestler Lacey Evans was in Edmonton for a WWE Live! show at Rogers Place Saturday night.

As of Sunday afternoon, the video, which shows an RCMP officer issuing a violation ticket for speeding to Evans, has over 380,000 views.

As she is issued the ticket, Evans can be heard saying: “Do you know who I am?”

“I have no idea,” said the officer, who is identified by a name tag as G.M. Brettell.

“WWE superstar,” she can be heard saying. “You should know exactly who I am.”

RCMP have confirmed to Global News that it was not a planned or coordinated video.

“I can’t answer for her, but it’s a legitimate traffic stop from our end,” Cpl. Chris Warren said Sunday morning.

“You nasty thing,” said Evans. “I’ll pay the ticket.”

The officer tells Evans to have a good day and says: “Welcome to Edmonton.”

Evans is also heard saying: “You have a terrible day sir. Canada is terrible,” to the officer.

On Monday, following the video going viral, Evans posted a PSA, clarifying that she does not “condone, agree with or promote disrespecting or making [law enforcement officer’s] jobs harder than they already are.”

Global News has reached out to WWE representatives but has not heard back.
