DS Shin and Paloma Starr of Ring The Belle discuss on their show this week the possibility of Evolution 2 still being talked about.
As the year continues to fly by there is less and less chance that a second annual all women’s pay-per-view is going to happen. For at least this year. It was announced last year in July and took place in October. July has come and gone, but there is still a slight chance it could still happen in October.
WWE has their Hell in the Cell event scheduled for Oct. 6 and then Survivor Series on Nov. 24. In the middle is Crown Jewel on Oct. 31. As we all know, women are not permitted during the Saudi Arabia event so there will be a large seven-week gap between events that the women will not be featured.
From an anonymous source to Tom Colohue via Sportskeeda the following was said about a potential Evolution 2.
“Talks never really ended but they were always brief. Some people were fiercely for it but the logistics didn’t iron out. Things are looking very different now. People higher up are starting to listen.”
DS and Paloma speak on rumors why originally Evolution wouldn’t happen again this year. Many people were saying that big names such as Ronda Rousey and The Bella Twins being out hindered the chance. Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch was a fan favorite over Rousey vs. Nikki Bella so that opinion could be argued. Now with Sasha Banks back in the fold and Trish Stratus vs. Charlotte Flair being a hit from SummerSlam, it is turning some heads.
Possibilities for Evolution 2 could be Brie Bella and Lita receiving retirement matches just as Trish just did. The thing with Lita is that the retirement match she had didn’t pan out so well for her. She came out on the losing end against Mickie James. That match took place at Survivor Series and Lita lost her title.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, Trish won her original retirement match against Lita where she became a seven-time champion. Of course, both Hall of Famers have had a few matches since those retirement matches but maybe Lita winning her “final” retirement match could make everything come full circle.
DS and Paloma discuss potential opponents for both Brie and Lita. For Brie such names as Ember Moon, Asuka, Liv Morgan, Alicia Fox or even Maryse. For Lita big names such as Becky Lynch and Asuka were discussed.
Would you be interested to see Brie Bella and Lita get retirement matches as Trish had? Do you think what Lita has already done is enough or does she need some retribution to go out on top? Discuss your thoughts in the comment section below.
