Evolution is set to reunite on SmackDown Live’s 1000th episode. The faction consists of Ric Flair, Triple H, Randy Orton, and Batista. Evolution was formed back in 2002 and featured the best of WWE’s past (Flair), present (Triple H), and future (Orton and Batista).
Each man in the group has been extremely successful. Flair, of course, is a 16-time World Champion and two-time WWE Hall Of Famer. Triple H also has several World Titles under his belt and is currently a key WWE executive. “The Game” also continues to wrestle inside the ring from time to time. Orton, also a several time former World Champion, is still part of WWE today as a member of the SmackDown Live roster.
And of course, Batista, another several time former World Champ, is progressing in an impressive film career that has seen him become a key member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The faction will reunite on WWE SmackDown’s 1000th episode special on October 16th.
Orton took to Twitter to react to the news, and had this to say:
“The most dominant faction created created by
@WWE returns in full for a historic night.”
