Former WWE star Torrie Wilson has revealed some plans that she had originally at the first-ever women’s pay-per-view event under the WWE banner, Evolution, on October 28, 2018, at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, in Uniondale, New York.
Wilson shed light on this while serving as a recent guest Lilian Garcia’s Chasing Glory podcast where she spoke about various topics. She recalled how WWE had called her a few months before the show and asked if she wanted to compete at the show, which she agreed to do so. She wanted to be in a match and had pitched a contest. This match would’ve seen her team up with Michelle McCool to take on The IIconics (Peyton Royce & Billie Kay) in a tag team bout.
“It was gonna happen, and then they decided they didn’t want it to happen.” She added that she was excited as she started to train for it in Orlando, Florida but “for whatever reasons creatively it didn’t happen.”
Instead, WWE booked her in a 20-woman Battle Royal for a women’s championship match that was won by Nia Jax. Kay, Royce, Molly Holly, Kelly Kelly, Sonya Deville, Alundra Blayze, Maria Kanellis, Lana, Mandy Rose, Dana Brooke, Michelle McCool, Naomi, Carmella, Ivory, Asuka, Tamina, Zelina Vega, and Ember Moon also competed in the match.
Wilson added that she was glad she worked the Battle Royal instead of the tag match because she took two bumps and thought it was a good thing she didn’t work a full match.
