WWE Sets ‘Women’s Only’ Event for the Fall
The women of the WWE are hitting the mat for a big showdown
The women of the WWE are moving front and center in an all-new Pay Per View event coming this fall. Marking the first time in WWE history, the company will be hosting an all-women’s exclusive PPV event, and it’s being called “Evolution”. The special event is currently scheduled to take place on Sunday, October 28th from NYCB LIVE, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in New York.
If you don’t live in the area, the event will stream live on the WWE Network and will be available on pay-per-view around the world. The event will feature Women’s Championship matches from all of your favorites, including Monday Night Raw, SmackDown Live, NXT and NXT UK, as well as the finals of the all-women’s tournament, Mae Young Classic 2018. Tickets for Evolution will be available Friday, August 24 at 10 am ET via ticketmaster.com, NYCBLIVE.com, or by phone.
“Three years ago, our fans demanded a change with the hashtag, #GiveDivasAChance, and an evolution started,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative. “Since that time, our female Superstars have overdelivered in every opportunity presented to them, and I expect nothing different during our first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view event.”
The entire women’s roster will be on hand including Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair, Alexa Bliss, Sasha Banks, Carmella, Nia Jax and Asuka, as well as Hall of Famers and Legends Trish Stratus, Lita and many more.
“This historic event marks another milestone in WWE’s women’s evolution,” said Stephanie McMahon, WWE Chief Brand Officer. “The spotlight just got brighter for these athletic, talented women, who will once again showcase to the world that they can break down barriers and blaze their own trails.”
The women of the WWE have crafted an incredible following on the network and it’s nice to see them move into the spotlight for such a big event. Fans will have to wait until October to see how everything unfolds but there are sure to be a ton of teasers and promotions leading up to the big event.
