Today is a landmark moment for the women competitors of WWE. The sports entertainment giant is hosting its first event where every competitor on the card is female. The show is called Evolution, and it will celebrate the progress the women’s division has made in recent years at WWE while bringing back some of the legends who paved the way.
Evolution comes to the WWE Network on Sunday, October 28 at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET / 11 PM GMT, with the Kickoff Show starting one hour prior. WWE’s Evolution will be held at NYCB Live in Uniondale, New York. If you’re in the area, tickets are still available for the upcoming event. If you want to check out the event for yourself, you can subscribe to WWE’s streaming service for $10 a month, or sign up for a free month and cancel at any time with no obligation.
If you are excited to see Alexa Bliss and Mickie James team up at WWE’s all-women’s PPV, Evolution, prepared to be a little bummed out. Due to injury, Bliss cannot compete at the upcoming show. She will be replaced by Alicia Fox in the tag team match. Also, because of this change, Fox has been removed from the Battle Royal match.
Thus far, everything on the card is straight fire. The glorious pirate Kairi Sane and her amazing elbow drop continues her rivalry with the Queen of Spades, Shayna Baszler, for the NXT Championship. Also, Charlotte gets a rematch for the Smackdown Women’s Championship against the super-arrogant–and super-wonderful–Becky Lynch in a Last Woman Standing match, and the buildup to that match has been phenomenal over the past few weeks.
As of this writing, there are seven matches on the card. There is a week left to go before the show, but we’ll keep you updated as more matches are announced.
