What about The Kickoff pre-show?
A panel of WWE greats and pundits will break down all the action to come during a WWE Evolution Kickoff pre-show from 11pm, which will apparently take the form of a ‘Red Carpet’ event.
It is set to feature the night’s commentary team of Michael Cole, Renee Young and Beth Phoenix, plus SmackDown general manager Paige, returning announcer Lilian Garcia and current broadcasters JoJo, Kayla Braxton, Charly Caruso, Dasha Fuentes, Cathy Kelley and Sarah Schreiber.
This will start at 6pm local time and at 11pm in the UK.
What is the main event?
The women’s championships of The Bella Twins teamed with Ronda Rousey to help the Raw Women’s Champion overcome the Riott Squad at Super Show-Down in Australia earlier this month. But on the following episode of Raw, after they partnered up again to win a rematch, Nikki and Brie Bella attacked Rousey, turning heel.
A title match between Rousey and Nikki was then scheduled for Evolution. Can the longest reigning Divas Champion in WWE history topple The Baddest Woman On The Planet?
At SummerSlam, Charlotte Flair defeated Becky Lynch and former champion Carmella in a triple threat match to become a two-time SmackDown Women’s Champion by pinning Lynch. Frustrated, Lynch then attacked her best friend Flair, turning heel, despite fans still cheering for the Lasskicker.
Lynch then defeated Flair to win the championship at Hell in a Cell and at Super Show-Down, retained her title via disqualification. The two had a rematch on SmackDown, but it ended in a double countout, resulting in Becky again retaining. Now they will clash in a last woman standing match, which could steal the show.
Will there be a tag team title match?
No, because as of yet, WWE still hasn’t created women’s tag team titles. But there will be two tag battles, including a huge star-studded showdown.
Singles matches pitting Alexa Bliss versus Trish Stratus and Mickie James against Lita were originally scheduled for the event. But now allies Bliss and James will team up to face the Attitude Era ‘besties’ in a match full of history. James retired Lita back in 2006, while she made her name in matches against Stratus. Meanwhile, Alexa has spent years being compared to Trish – but who is the true Goddess of WWE?
Elsewhere on the card, a six-woman encounter sees Sasha Banks, Bayley and Natalya face The Riott Squad’s Liv Morgan, Sarah Logan and Ruby Riott. This is an unheralded contest, but given longer to impress, this group could well deliver.
What are the other key matches on the card?
The final of the 2018 Mae Young Classic tournament will take place at Evolution, with Japanese wonder Io Shirai squaring off against NXT UK talent Toni Storm.
Meanwhile, the woman who bested Storm to become the first NXT UK Women’s Champion, the powerhouse Rhea Ripley, will defend her title against a to-be-confirmed foe.
But don’t overlook a rematch of last year’s Mae Young Classic final, as Kairi Sane defends the NXT Women’s Championship versus the deadly Shayna Baszler.
Are there likely to be any surprise appearances?
Yes, loads, in the match sweeping up the rest of the company’s female talent – a women’s battle royal with a future championship match at stake.
Names confirmed to appear so far include Raw sextet Tamina, Ember Moon, Alicia Fox, Nia Jax, Dana Brooke and Maria Kanellis, plus SmackDown stars Billie Kay, Peyton Royce, Asuka, Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, Carmella, Lana, Naomi and Zelina Vega.
They will be rejoined by returning greats Torrie Wilson, Michelle McCool, Alundra Blayze, Ivory, Kelly Kelly and Molly Holly!
