Longtime former ring announcer for WWE, Lilian Garcia spoke recently with Daily DDT. During the interview the topic of Evolution, the all women’s pay-per-view from last year, presented itself. Many fans have been hoping for a second Evolution to take place this year but unfortunately, nothing has been announced yet. She did return at that event to be the ring announcer.
Garcia was first asked how she would feel about this event returning. She had the following to say:
“I would love to see it come back. I think the women proved that they can hold a pay-per-view on their own, but if not, I don’t think that’s a bad thing either in the fact that the women are now present in every single pay-per-view. It’s almost not even needed if it doesn’t come back. Either way, I think it’s going to be okay.”
She then continues with all the success women have accomplished. This in itself makes Garcia feel that another all-female pay-per-view isn’t necessarily needed.
She continues, “I just think it was beautiful to do it and establish it that very first year just to make a statement and from there the company has continued to… I mean, think about it, the women main evented WrestleMania this year. That’s the way you continue that. They’ve continued with the Money in the Bank matches, the Ladder matches, Elimination Chamber, all those kind of matches that keep showing off the women’s capabilities. I think it’s great, and like I said, whether they have another one or not, I don’t think that’s a big deal.”
She was also asked about the impact that Ronda Rousey has done for WWE. She had the following to say:
“I think the women are working so hard and doing so, so good. I can’t tell you whether she’s helping or not, I have no idea. I think it’s cool that she came. I love that she came. I respect the fact that she now wants to raise a family and I know that the women that are there now are just focused on their absolute best and are killing it. Becky Lynch, Charlotte, all of them. So proud of them.”
