Why WWE Didn’t Hold Evolution Event This Year

Evolution was a landmark pay-per-view event for WWE with an all-female card, but they didn’t book another show this year.

Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE had the same interest for Evolution that they did for an event like Stomping Grounds. Evolution did end up selling out the building, but that might not be enough for the company to give them another all-female pay-per-view.

“I think that there’s a fear that without Ronda [Rousey] then maybe, but whatever reason if they do or don’t do that pay-per-view that is a purely economic business decision either way they go. This is not a moral issue if they don’t do an all-woman pay-per-view, okay?”

“If you want to do it then they want to do it, that’s all. The show was great last year, but just because it was great doesn’t mean you have to do it this year. Obviously, it wasn’t so great business-wise because they didn’t put it on the schedule this year, but the fact that you want to be a champion in women’s sports and you make a deal with Saudi Arabia you don’t have the courage or convictions.”

There was reportedly talk about Evolution 2.0 happening before the end of the year, but with so much going on in WWE right now they might not have time to plan this event in 2019.

We’ll have to see when they might be able to get to promoting another all-women’s event, but star power could certainly be something that keeps this idea from getting off of the ground.
