A current WWE Superstar has publicly called for the company to hold a second all-female Evolution event, commenting that such events are “always necessary.”
In October 2018, WWE held it’s first, and to date only, all-female pay-per-view event titled Evolution. The event was intended as a celebration of the ‘Women’s Revolution,’ and to showcase the talents of WWE’s increasingly impressive women’s division.
On the night every WWE Women’s Championship was contested, while the winner of the 2018 Mae Young Classic was also crowned. In the main event, Ronda Rousey defeated Nikki Bella to retain her Raw Women’s Championship.
During an appearance on the Ten Count with NBC Sports Boston, vocal women’s advocate Lacey Evans has suggested that WWE should bring the event back. The SmackDown star pointed to the number of female stars who juggle being a parent with performing in the ring, commenting that they could serve as an inspiration to others.
“I think it’s always necessary. Why not? What would be the hurt of it? I don’t think there’d be any hurt of it,” she said. “I think that all the moms out there now that are especially wrestling — You’ve got Ronda Rousey, you’ve got Becky Lynch, you’ve got The Bellas, you’ve got Lacey Evans, you’ve got Bianca Belair, you’ve got Tamina, you’ve got all these badass women that are now how about let’s do another one and have all our babies ringside watching their mamas. Then, behind that, have all the girls in the world that want to be sports entertainers behind the babies.
“That dream of, not becoming pro wrestlers, but just having freakin’ careers and having to juggle what we juggle and the fact that we get to show the world what mommies are capable of, that we can still chase our dreams and these careers, and be badass wives, and moms and, and work hard is cool,” she added. “So I’m down for any time we can highlight the strengths of a woman. Let’s do it, especially with having two girls myself.”
Lacey Evans made her return to WWE television in April after being absent for more than a year due to the birth of her second child. Evans is due to compete in the women’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match on July 2nd where she takes on Alexa Bliss, Becky Lynch, Asuka, Raquel Rodriguez, Shotzi and Liv Morgan.
