WWE’s women’s division went through a literal evolution in the past few years. This is a result of their enthusiasm and fans crying out for better treatment. It’s been a long time since Evolution, but hope is now renewed that fans will see another event like that again.
Over the past ten years, World Wrestling Entertainment has seen a substantial increase in the amount of women’s wrestling on their program. Women in WWE were brought to the forefront more frequently.
The company recently commemorated the four-year anniversary of Evolution, the first all-female pay-per-view. Women’s representatives from Raw, SmackDown, NXT, and NXT UK gathered alumni on October 28th 2018 to make company history.
According to Dana Brooke, the current 24/7 Champion, the competition will return “in the near future.” She spoke to Steve Fall of NBC Sports Boston, and was very positive about the subject. Although “it might not be Evolution, but it might be something like it.”
“Women have always, for the last decade or so, have been pushing the bar and really stepping up and in those Crown Jewel pay-per-views [as well], we’ve been making history. So I definitely feel as though it’s something that we will see again soon.”
Brooke went on to say that Paul “Triple H” Levesque, chief content officer, “has always believed in women and had their back. He’s always been promoting and pushing women.”
Brooke also stated that Stephanie McMahon, who was just named co-chief executive officer, is “always for women empowerment, always, always, always.” Several of the women’s roster was assembled by McMahon during a July 2018 episode of RAW for the announcement that WWE would host Evolution, the first-ever pay-per-view of its sort.
Although a second Evolution has not been confirmed, several women, notably former SmackDown Women’s Champions Sasha Banks and Bayley, have stated their desire for the event to take place again. For further updates stay tuned to Ringside News.
