WWE announces first-ever all-women's PPV for October.
On October 28, the WWE will host its first-ever all-women's pay-per-view event, titled Evolution, featuring the women of Monday Night Raw, SmackDown Live, NXT and the newly formed NXT: U.K. brands, as well as some Hall of Famers. The historic event will be held at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.
WWE's chief brand officer, Stephanie McMahon made the announcement on last night's episode of Monday Night Raw alongside her husband, WWE executive vice president of Talent, Live Events & Creative, Triple H. There's still three months to set the match card, but Triple H revealed fans can expect to see current stars Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair, Alexa Bliss and Sasha Banks as well as legends Trish Stratus and Lita.
"Three years ago, our fans demanded a change with #GiveDivasAChance," said Paul "Triple H" Levesque, per ESPN. "Everything that's happened since then has come from that demand -- their insistence on seeing that change. Once given the [chance], they have taken every opportunity and not only knocked it out of the park, but hit a grand slam."
"You can expect to see the best of all brands -- that's Ronda [Rousey], Charlotte [Flair], Alexa [Bliss], Sasha [Banks], Carmella, Nia Jax, Asuka, everyone -- plus you'll get to see Trish Stratus, Lita will be there, you're going to see some legends," Levesque said. "You're also going to see stars of now and the future in Shayna Baszler and the women of NXT."
On the WWE's pay-per-view calendar, Evolution will fall in between the WWE's upcoming "Super Show-Down" in Melbourne, Australia, and Survivor Series. The next PPV on the WWE calendar is SummerSlam, which will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on August 19.
