WWE held Evolution, their first-ever all-female pay-per-view, on October 28th, 2018, at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, in Uniondale, New York. That event was previously a house show before WWE made it a historic night for pro wrestling. Mickie James still thinks that WWE could have done more.

While speaking to Wrestling Inc, Mickie James went into Evolution a bit. She said that if the company would have spent as much effort promoting it then Evolution might be a yearly event at this point, but it was almost set up to fail by the way they paid attention to it.

“It was only really promoted for a month. The matches weren’t even announced but a week or two before. There was zero promotion or marketing.”

“It was almost set up to fail,” she continues. “If there was as much energy and focus put into it as perhaps some of the other events, and made and highlighted how monumental this actually is, perhaps that wouldn’t be true.”

WWE did promote the event for a bit, but it was also squeezed into the schedule. Many fans are crying for WWE to bring back the Evolution event, but the roster is currently lacking some huge names that were big draws for the show like Ronda Rousey, Nikki Bella, Becky Lynch, Trish Stratus, and Lita.
