• Stephanie McMahon Wants To Bring Back One Of The Worst Drawing WWE PPVs Ever
In 2018, WWE did the 1st ever all-women’s pay-per-view event: Evolution.
While the fans of women’s wrestling certainly enjoyed this PPV, this was said to be one of the worst drawing pay-per-views of all time, which is one of the reasons why WWE only did it once. Mickie James confirmed this as well.
However, since WWE doesn’t have to work about PPV buys / WWE Network buys, since the Network is on Peacock in the US now, WWE doesn’t worry that much about the timing and other stuff about their premium live events.
According to Xero News, WWE co-CEO Stephanie McMahon wants to bring the Evolution PLE back in 2023:
“They’re looking to bring in Evolution again, that’s what Stephanie is pushing. She is pushing heavily for that.
She wants another All-Women’s pay-per-view. What might happen is Evolution might run the same weekend as one of the other Premium Live Events.”
If you didn’t watch Evolution 2018, below are the results from that event:
– Trish Stratus & Lita def. Mickie James & Alicia Fox (with Alexa Bliss)
– Nia Jax won the 20-woman Battle Royal to earn a Women’s Championship Match
– Toni Storm def. Io Shirai to win the 2018 Mae Young Classic
– Sasha Banks, Bayley & Natalya def. The Riott Squad (Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan & Sarah Logan)
– Shayna Baszler def. Kairi Sane (c) to win the NXT Women’s Championship
– Becky Lynch (c) def. Charlotte Flair in a Last Woman Standing Match to retain the SmackDown Women’s Championship
– Ronda Rousey (c) def. Nikki Bella (with Brie Bella) to retain the RAW Women’s Championship
