The venue will hold around 14,000, so I hope the women can get it as full as possible.

It's not an event I can take seriously. It's a box ticking gimmick event for the good publicity it will bring.

It's going to be like a B level Night Of Champions with so much on the line in pretty much every match.

WWE Evolution is being used as a back door pilot to gauge interest for a women only Network exclusive show a la 205 Live. 

We'll see if it works. I'll fantasy book it later. Earliest rumour suggested a Rousey vs Banks main event.

I thought they already had a women’s only show for a network , WWE Divas ? None the less , I’m glad for the women to have their own PPV. Just like the guys , some will be good and some will not so I hope the ladies burn it down , so to speak. I’m just glad they didn’t introduce yet more titles. Then there would be 2 more tag titles with raw and Smackdown women’s tag belts. I sarill say unify the Yniversla and the real world championship belt and let the champ be on both Raw and Smackdown. No participation trophies.

They are calling it the first ever womens only PPV when it's going to be on the Network so no different to what they have already done with the Mae Young Classic.

I think tag titles for women will still be added and the first champions crowned at this event.

To have fifty women on the show is going to feel like overkill.

They can't even manage more then 3 storylines for the women and they're going to have a PPV about them the only interest it Will have will be Ronda Rousey being on the show.

To make the show have as much interest as possible, it's got to be a big priority in the coming months, for creative to try and make more women look like stars.
 
Quote On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, it was speculated that because there will be at least 50 women competing in the upcoming Evolution PPV, there will have to be some sort of battle royal or Royal Rumble and multi woman/tag team type matches in order to get all those talent into matches.

— On a related note, WWE is scheduled to go back to Saudi Arabia in November, which makes the timing of the all women’s PPV very interesting and likely not a coincidence. WWE is also holding the event in October to tie into Susan G. Komen and breast cancer awareness month.

E trying to make the women happy before they can't compete again in Saudi Arabia?
 
Or maybe the timing is to put extra pressure on Saudi Arabia to allow a match next time?

Total Divas isn't wrestling. It's also not all women.

I'd heard Rousey vs Banks would main event but with the Sasha vs Bayley feud being dragged out I'm not so sure if they'll just take the rematch women's title matches off of the September PPV and do them here.

Sad to see WWE pandering to the SJWs.

When will they learn that women matches still are and forever will be the piss break.

No total divas isn’t wrestling , that and the Bellas isn’t much of a show at all. Most hardcore fans probably won’t watch Evolution but still could be for the greatest royal rumble snub as well

Actually I'd suggest that most hardcore fans will watch Evolution but the audience will suffer due to a lack of support from casual fans.

It's gonna take a lot of women from the past to pull it off to make it worth watching. Current Smackdown roster isn't deep enough and both have wrestlers on it that most care nothing about. Cue Trish Stratus, Lita, Kelly Kelly, Michelle McCool. How wild would it be to pull of Sable, Torri Wilson, Tori Poch, Kat, Molly Holly.

At first I was thinking I wouldn’t bother watching it as for me while Women’s wrestling has improved from a in ring stand-point at least I still only have any real interest if it’s a big match like Charlotte/Asuka or Rousey/Jax to name a couple from recent times.

But if they make this into something special by including past names and having some big matches then I will give it a look. Rousey I expect to be champ by then so that presents plenty of interesting scenarios, if they bring back Trish Stratus or Michelle McCool for one more match would be interesting to see either of them wrestle Charlotte or Alexa Bliss maybe? Beth Phoenix vs Nia Jax would be another good one.

Yes I agree. I just don’t want another women’s royal rumble. I want actual matches.

Unfortunately I don't see this ppv doing that well especially when they're is only so much time on both Raw and Smackdown you can give the women to build up rivalries and even then this is probably the best kind of card you'll get 


Nia Jax vs Mickie James 


Ronda Rousey vs Alexa Bliss 


Sasha Banks vs Bayley 


Carmella vs Becky Lynch and possibly Asuka and Charlotte Flair as well 


maybe a nothing tag match with Iconics maybe taking on the bellas or something 


What other matches could you possibly put on the card and better yet can the women go longer then 15 minutes because so far only Charlotte and Sasha have gone more then 15 minutes in the ring at any time on the main roster.

Allow me to fantasy book for a moment.

Ronda Rousey vs Sasha Banks

Charlotte Flair vs Asuka

Ember Moon vs Naomi

Shayna Baszler vs Becky Lynch

Toni Storm vs Io Sharai

Bliss vs Bayley

Trish Stratus vs Mickie James

Bella Twins vs Iiconics

There's a lot they could do, and I'd sure watch the hell out of it.

You say they don't have time to build but they actually have far more time. I would imagine they'll build some feuds in the background and have a couple of matches built up for the PPV before that don't happen. Charlotte vs Asuka doesn't need build, Rousey vs Banks doesn't need long.

Only Rousey v Banks and Charlotte v Asuka really has any appeal. Yes I know it’s a fantasy build but that why I’ve said the women’s division needs work. There are only a few that are really good to carry really good and entertaining matches. We will see how it all shakes down by then but hopefully it will be worth the build they are trying to give it to be.

Quote Last night, WWE announced another match for their first ever all-women's PPV, Evolution, which takes place October 28, 2018 live from Uniondale, NY. WWE Hall of Famer Lita will return to the ring to take on Mickie James in a one-on-one match.

— WWE (@WWE) https://twitter.com/WWE/status/1036804264088219649?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" rel="nofollow - September 4, 2018

-- WWE has already suggested that approximately 50 female superstars will be competing at this PPV, with past legends/stars joining future NXT talent alongside the company's current Raw and Smackdown superstars. The only other matches official is another Hall of Famer Trish Stratus taking on Alexa Bliss and the finals of the Mae Young Classic. Both the Raw and Smackdown women's titles are likely to be defended. There is also expected to be some sort of battle royal or multi-person match to be announced later this month.

Any returning for one night only Diva/Legend should be losing their match on the night.
 
Not sure if it's something I will be rushing to watch as it shows up the lack of talent on the current roster, that they feel they have to bring back past ladies to help the event.
 
Also there is no avoiding the elephant in the room, which is that AJ Lee won't be there when she should be.

Admittedly, Evolution will be ground breaking for the women of wrestling. Bringing back Trish, Lita and other legends is a nice touch, however I probably won't watch it just due to the fact I simply have no interest in watching a all women's PPV.

I used to feel much the same, despite the revival of women’s wrestling in WWE it’s still often a after thought of the product to me, although I must admit my interest in the women’s division is probably at a all time high with Ronda Rousey on Raw and the Becky/Charlotte feud on Smackdown. When this show was first announced I did think I would probably only watch highlights or select matches but so far I think there is enough quality on the card for me to watch the whole thing.

It’s definitely a form of compensation for the ladies I think as they’ve now missed out on two big pay days with the Saudi shows, but it’s well timed with the current popularity of the women’s division and all the history making stuff they are doing.

It's not about bringing back former talent to "help". They do very little to sell tickets because they come from a time when women's wrestling being bad was just as much their fault as it was the bookers. The older wrestlers coming back is more of a ceremonial move for the name evolution, and a pat on the back for doing what they should have done all along.

The Mae Young Classic finals, & the NXT roster is all they really need. Nikki Cross is gonna be a highlight of the night. And Io Shirai competing presumably against either Toni Storm or Lacey Lane, Kairi Sane vs Shayna Baszler, and Rousey vs Nikki and Charlotte vs Becky is more than enough to make me tune in.

I fully expect to see Shayna Baszler & Ronda Rousey to unite for the first time at this PPV against the Bella Twins.
