In October 2018 WWE held their first, and to date only, all-female pay-per-view event, Evolution. The show was designed a showcase for WWE women’s division which had grown in importance in recent years.
Ever since the event took place there have been calls from fans for a second ‘Evolution’ to be added to WWE’s schedule. However, such a show remains elusive.
“Stephanie McMahon And Triple H Care About Women’s Wrestling” – Natalya
During an appearance on the Faction 919 podcast, former SmackDown Women’s Champion Natalya was asked about the possibility of an all-female Premium Live Event returning. On the original show, the Canadian star teamed with Sasha Banks and Bayley to defeat Ruby Riott (Ruby Soho), Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan.
Looking ahead, Natalya said that Stephanie McMahon is a big advocate for women’s wrestling, and is striving for equality within WWE.
“I definitely see Stephanie wanting to do more with women’s wrestling,
Stephanie has always wanted women to have more representation, she doesn’t want a show where it’s like, okay we have 75% male matches and we’ve got 25% women’s matches. She wants a show where it’s half men and half women, she wants equality for women in WWE, she has been very vocal about it and it’s really, really cool,
“One of the first things I thought about all of these new changes, especially with Stephanie and Triple H, they really care about women’s wrestling.”
Continuing on, Natalya recalled working with Triple H during her time in NXT and his desire to make women’s matches an vital part of the show.
“When I was at “NXT” and Triple H was first introducing he said to me, ‘I don’t want to have it just be like oh those girls had a great wrestling match. He said I want it to be where it’s like, ‘that was a great match.'”
WWE Evolution was headlined by the Raw Women’s Title match between Ronda Rousey and Nikki Bella. While the show also featured a Last Women Standing Match between Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s crown.
