first_imgWorld Wrestling Entertainment’s Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon made a historic announcement during Monday Night RAW on July 23 at the US Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio.Stephanie took the stage along with husband and WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events and Creative Triple H and Vice president of the company Vince McMahon ahead of the show and announced that women’s revolution will go to the next stage.As all the members of the RAW roster watched on from the ramp, Stephanie announced that for the first time in WWE history, an all-women’s exclusive pay-per-view event, Evolution, will take place on Sunday, October 28 at 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.”Three years ago, our fans demanded a change with the hashtag, #GiveDivasAChance, and an evolution started. 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,” said Triple H.”This historic event marks another milestone in WWE’s women’s evolution. The spotlight just got brighter for these athletic, talented women, who will once again showcase to the world that they can break down barriers and blaze their own trails,” added Stephanie.The entire women’s roster will be on hand including Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair, Alexa Bliss, Sasha Banks, Carmella, Nia Jax and Asuka, as well as Hall of Famers and Legends Trish Stratus, Lita and many more.advertisementEXCLUSIVE: #RAW #WomensChampion @AlexaBliss_WWE cannot wait to make more history at #WWEEvolution, and she has a dream opponent in mind! pic.twitter.com/QCFs1WySheWWE (@WWE) July 24, 2018EXCLUSIVE: @itsBayleyWWE already has an idea about what her dream match would be at #WWEEvolution…#RAW pic.twitter.com/GJXfRN69znWWE (@WWE) July 24, 2018EXCLUSIVE: @SashaBanksWWE gets emotional when discussing her feelings about #WWEEvolution. #RAW pic.twitter.com/nCw6sIKxbIWWE (@WWE) July 24, 2018EXCLUSIVE: @CarmellaWWE fully intends to walk into #WWEEvolution as the #SDLive #WomensChampion! #RAW pic.twitter.com/1NtMPqicpxWWE (@WWE) July 24, 2018EXCLUSIVE: #WWEEvolution is nothing short of a dream come true for @BeckyLynchWWE! #RAW pic.twitter.com/O4xrJvqpvfWWE (@WWE) July 24, 2018EXCLUSIVE: Following the announcement on #RAW, @WWEEmberMoon is BEYOND excited to make history at #WWEEvolution! pic.twitter.com/RUO9qDRaWUWWE (@WWE) July 24, 2018WWE is also working hard to provide exclusive opportunities for its female wrestlers to shine on the biggest stage after the company was criticised for not allowing the women to compete at Greatest Royal Rumble due to ultra conservative laws in Saudi Arabia.Stephanie, who had appeared on RAW back in May, had recently confirmed the first women’s Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber matches during her previous history-making announcement.Increasing the salaries of the female wrestlers was also being “seriously discussed” for “late September or early October”.(With inputs from WWE)last_img read more
