One of the title matches for WWE's Evolution pay-per-view has been confirmed.

At tonight's NXT television tapings, it was announced that Kairi Sane will defend her NXT Women's Championship against Shayna Baszler at Evolution. This will be Baszler's rematch for the title after dropping it to Sane at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV in August.

Sane vs. Baszler was set up for Evolution after Sane defeated Vanessa Borne at tonight's tapings. Baszler came down after the match and got on the microphone. She said she'll be invoking her rematch clause and said she'll win the title back. Sane responded to her, saying that their match will be taking place at Evolution.

Evolution will be held at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York on October 28. Alexa Bliss vs. Trish Stratus, Mickie James vs. Lita, and the finals of the Mae Young Classic have also been made official for the PPV.
