    WWE to hold “Women’s Evolution” session at SXSW

    WWE announced today via Twitter that they will be present at the SXSW Conference & Festivals. The purpose of their appearance is to discuss the evolution of women’s wrestling, and its future. At the event will be Cathy Kelly, along with Stephanie McMahon, Triple H, and Charlotte Flair.

    The name of the session is titled “Women’s Evolution in WWE and Beyond”. From the name of this session, it could include women’s empowerment outside of the realm of WWE. McMahon will also take part of a separate session earlier in the same day titled “Fearless Women in Action.” This session will be with Jean Case of the Case Foundation, and Mellie Price from SoftMatch.

    Many fans are responding to this news in hopes that an all-female pay-per-view event for this year will be announced. The evolution of women’s wrestling is historically attributed to the #GiveDivasAChance movement that started in 2015. Three years later, the first WWE all-female pay-per-view was in October, titled Evolution.

    As previously reported, Heels by Nature provided the pay-per-view schedule for 2019. There is currently not any all-women’s event listed.

    “Women’s Evolution in WWE and Beyond” will take place on March 9 at 2 p.m. CT. You can check into more details of this event by checking out the SXSW website.
