WWE officially announced tonight that their first-ever pay-per-view event to only feature female talent, Evolution, is set to take place this fall.
Stephanie McMahon, along with Triple H and Vince McMahon, made the announcement tonight at the start of Monday Night Raw in front of both rosters. After giving a speech that praised the progress made by female wrestlers over the last several years, McMahon made the announcement. Women from all of WWE’s brands, including Raw, SmackDown, NXT and NXT UK will be part of the show. There will be title matches from each of those brands.
An ESPN article that came out shortly after the announcement said that women from the past, specifically Trish Stratus and Lita, would be part of the event. The finals of the second Mae Young Classic, which is set to tape next month, will also be held at Evolution.
The show will take place at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York on October 28.
