WWE didn’t hold Evolution II this year as so many fans would have liked. The idea has been pitched a couple of times, but never made it past that point. There is still hope that another all-female pay-per-view is in the pipeline.
Sasha Banks recently sat down with Table Talk where she answered a very popular question: “Who is your dream opponent?” This was in reference to if WWE held another Evolution event.
When it comes to picking an opponent, Banks only had one person in mind. She would like to pull Trish Stratus out of retirement for another match.
“If I could choose anybody? Trish Stratus. I would lose my mind. But honestly, there are so many people. I would like to have a match with anybody I have not had a match with before Trish Stratus was the top of the women’s division of her time. She was the best. She was beautiful. She was athletic and she inspired me. I have a bunch of her stuff. I remember going to the Eddie Guerrero tribute show and she had this pink shirt on and I saw that shirt at a store and I was like, I need that shirt because Trish Stratus had that shirt. Trish Stratus was always the one.”
“When I finally got to meet her and work with her, I fell more in love with her. She is the most amazing beautiful human being I’ve ever met. Not only did she inspire me in the ring, she inspires me for what she does outside of the ring as well.”
Evolution II isn’t impossible, but WWE might need some of their bigger female names back first. Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair, and Becky Lynch are all out of action right now. All three of those names would be great features on the card.
It makes sense that WWE is holding off on another all-female pay-per-view until they can guarantee a successful event. Sasha Banks obviously can’t wait for the company to give the Evolution idea another shot.
