WWE’s all-female PPV, Evolution, takes place in Long Island on October 28th, 2018. Up until recently, ticket sales had not thought to be going well.
According to a recent report from the Wrestling Observer, however, sales spiked after WWE announced Ronda Rousey vs Nikki Bella would headline the event.
“The announcement of Rousey vs. Nikki Bella last week did lead to a surge in ticket sales for the Nassau Coliseum show and it is expected to sell out,” wrote Dave Meltzer.
Ronda Rousey vs Nikki Bella at WWE Evolution
WWE originally had announced Alexa Bliss vs Trish Stratus and Mickie James vs Lita for Evolution. Those two matches were later changed to single’s matches, however. The company was not able to announce Rousey vs Nikki until after Super Show-Down and Nikki’s heel turn. Some speculation holds that WWE announced the two single’s matches originally in an effort to boost ticket sales. Then, after they were able to announce Rousey vs Nikki Bella, WWE produced the angle where the legends matches were combined into one tag-team match.
In addition to Rousey vs Nikki and the legends matches, the NXT, Smackdown, and Raw Womens’ Championships will be defended on the show. Evolution will take place October 28th from Uniondale, New York.
