WWE announce all womens PPV
WWE have announced that they will hold their first ever all women’s PPV called WWE Evolution.
The announcement was made by Stephanie McMahon and Triple H on WWE Monday Night Raw and was followed by an official statement on WWE’s website.
On Monday Night Raw, WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon announced the formation of WWE Evolution, a groundbreaking all-women’s exclusive pay-per-view event that will take place on Sunday, Oct. 28, at 7 p.m. ET from NYCB LIVE, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in New York. The event will stream live on WWE Network and be available on pay-per-view around the world, featuring Women’s Championship Matches from Monday Night Raw, SmackDown LIVE, NXT and NXT UK, as well as the finals of the all-women’s tournament, Mae Young Classic 2018.
“Because of all of you, men and women using your voices for change, we are able to provide the platform to show the world that women can do anything and be anything they want to be,” McMahon said on Raw. “Because of all of you, we are able to stand here and make another first-ever announcement. On October 28, over 50 women, then, now and forever, will participate in an event called Evolution, and that event — I am privileged to announce — will be the first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view.”
“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.”
Every woman on the roster will be on hand, including Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair, Alexa Bliss, Sasha Banks, Carmella, Nia Jax and Asuka, as well as WWE Hall of Famers and Legends Trish Stratus, Lita and many more.
This historic announcements follows a series of major breakthroughs in the WWE women’s division since the #GiveDivasAChance movement. Since then we have gone on to see the first WWE Womens Money in the Bank match, the first WWE Womens Royal Rumble match and the first WWE Womens Hell in a Cell match.
WWE’s women’s division has also been elevated to such heights that one of the most famous female athletes on the planet, Ronda Rousey, signed a full-time contract with the WWE this year.
WWE has been at the forefront of women’s sports and entertainment in recent years and the announcement of WWE Evolution is the next significant step for that movement.
