WWE held Evolution, the company’s first-ever all-female event on October 28th, 2018, at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, in Uniondale, New York. They have yet to have another similar show, but if you ask Triple H it’s not a “must have” situation at all.
During a conference call to promote NXT TakeOver: In Your House, Triple H was asked about WWE running another all-female pay-per-view. He started out by questioning the idea of equality as he said that if WWE held an all-male pay-per-view event then they would be criticized.
Then Triple H praise the women’s division in WWE and said that another Evolution event is not a “must have” situation. He also said that if people want to watch the best female wrestlers on the planet then they are in WWE.
“Haven’t we already done them? It’s a funny thing to me. Equality is equality. Equality is not ‘I want my own show.’ Equality is not ‘we have to have our own program.’ If I told you that I was making an all men’s program and didn’t want women on it, it would be criticized. I’m not saying that’s right or wrong. I think it’s funny when people go, ‘I want the best in the world regardless of contractual status.’ From a business standpoint, why do we have contractual status? It doesn’t make any sense.”
“If you want to wrestle the best women in the world, come to WWE. That’s where they are. If you want to go elsewhere and say that they are, that’s an opinion, and you can. I’m all for it and one of the biggest drivers of it. Will we do another all-women’s event down the line? Possibly, but it’s not a must-have at the moment. I think we do an amazing job of displaying our female athletes. Is it perfect? No. Will it always be in flux? Yes, but we do a pretty good job. In my opinion, the best female performers in the world are in WWE and if they are not, they want to be.”
WWE has a loaded women’s roster full of talent, but there are only so many hours of television available each week. Hopefully, WWE will hold another all-female event, but they would certainly need more star power that they are currently lacking. The Bella Twins, Ronda Rousey, Trish Stratus, Lita, and Becky Lynch were all featured during that event, but they are not regular performers anymore.
