WWE Officially Announces First All Women’s PPV: “Evolution”
To start RAW tonight, Stephanie McMahon, Triple H and Vince McMahon announced the first ever all women’s PPV. The PPV will take place on Sunday October 28 at the Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, NY.
On Monday Night Raw, WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon announced the formation of WWE Evolution, a groundbreaking all-women’s exclusive pay-per-view event that will take place on Sunday, Oct. 28, at 7 p.m. ET from NYCB LIVE, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in New York. The event will stream live on WWE Network and be available on pay-per-view around the world, featuring Women’s Championship Matches from Monday Night Raw, SmackDown LIVE, NXT and NXT UK, as well as the finals of the all-women’s tournament, Mae Young Classic 2018.
“Because of all of you, men and women using your voices for change, we are able to provide the platform to show the world that women can do anything and be anything they want to be,” McMahon said on Raw. “Because of all of you, we are able to stand here and make another first-ever announcement. On October 28, over 50 women, then, now and forever, will participate in an event called Evolution, and that event — I am privileged to announce — will be the first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view.”
“Three years ago, our fans demanded a change with the hashtag, #GiveDivasAChance, and an evolution started,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative. “Since that time, our female Superstars have overdelivered in every opportunity presented to them, and I expect nothing different during our first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view event.
Every woman on the roster will be on hand, including Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair, Alexa Bliss, Sasha Banks, Carmella, Nia Jax and Asuka, as well as WWE Hall of Famers and Legends Trish Stratus, Lita and many more.
Tickets for WWE Evolution will be available Friday, Aug. 24, at 10 a.m. ET via http://www.ticketmaster.com, NYCBLIVE.com, or by calling 1-800-745-3000
The announcement of past women coming back for this is no surprise. I would expect matches for the likes of Trish Stratus, Lita and maybe someone like Victoria or Molly Holly. The main attraction of course will be Ronda Rousey. Michael Cole also said that the RAW, Smackdown Live and NXT Women’s Titles will be defended on the show. The show will also include the finals of the Mae Young Classic.
With the women on the roster and in NXT, they can put on a decent show if they have the right matches. I’d expect Ronda to be RAW Women’s Champion by then, and hopefully Becky Lynch is the Smackdown women’s champion. I’ll throw out an idea for a card in the days ahead. But this is a positive step for the WWE and can be a good show if done right.
