Tonight is the night! More than 50 superstars from the past, present and future of WWE will come together in New York for a celebration of women’s wrestling unlike any that has ever been seen before.
WWE Evolution kicks off tonight on the WWE Network at 7PM ET (4 PT) with a one-hour kickoff show streaming on all the promotion’s social media platforms. A reminder that the first 30 minutes of the main card will be simulcast on Twitter @WWE, @TwitterLive and @TwitterSports so the online turnout should be excellent.
The historic event will be headlined by a woman who knows a thing or two about blazing trails for women in the world of combat sports, as MMA icon Ronda Rousey defends her Raw Women’s Championship against a two-time WWE Divas Champion and WWE’s most recognizable reality television star, Nikki Bella.
Also on the show Becky Lynch defends the Smackdown title against Charlotte Flair in a Last Woman Standing match, the finals of the 2018 Mae Young Classic, Kairi Sane defends the NXT Women’s Championship, Hall of Famers in tag team action, and a giant battle royale to determine the next #1 contender to one of the aforementioned titles.
Here are a few reminders, as WWE will be running an insane amount of content on all kinds of platforms throughout Sunday in preparation for WWE Evolution.
— WWE Snapchat will be run by The IIconics, Billie Kay and Peyton Royce, all weekend long
— WWE international social media accounts will be taken over by Taynara Conti (Brazil), Kairi Sane (Japan), Xia Li (China), Shadia Bseiso (Middle East), Dasha Fuentes (Latin America) and Kavita Devi (India). More information at this link.
