Savannah Evans reveals the origins of her nickname.
Before signing with IMPACT Wrestling, Savannah Evans made her mark on the independent scene as “The Cannibal,” which isn’t a nickname used frequently by women in wrestling. During a recent appearance on Wilde On, Evans explained to Taylor Wilde what led to her using that name.
“The name actually started in 2017, I’ll say, in this all-women’s promotion here in Charlotte called Queens of Combat. I was teamed with two other girls Devyn Nicole and Big Swole. We were an all-Black group of ladies. We were the Sexy Young Caramels, and our initials spelled out SYC. I was like, ‘Oh, that’s sick.’ We didn’t have that group really outside of the promotion, and it only lasted maybe a year or so. I still wanted to use the initials SYC, and I’m like, ‘How could I tweak around these letters a little bit?’ What if I’m ferocious, I’m the Sexy Young Cannibal. And I can still keep the initials, cool. It kinda started as for fun, and then I was like, ‘let me actually roll with this.’”
Savannah Evans has been partnered with Tasha Steelz since joining IMPACT in 2021. The duo recently challenged Jessicka and Taya Valkyrie of Death Dollz for the IMPACT Knockouts World Tag Team Championship at Over Drive.
