Rhea Ripley recently did an interview with the Metro to promote Sunday’s NXT TakeOver: In Your House Special where she’ll be competing in a Triple Threat Match against NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair and Io Shirai.
During the interview, Ripley discussed the possibility of a second Evolution pay-per-view event.
The first event took place in October 2018, at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, in Uniondale, New York, and was headlined by Nikki Bella vs. Ronda Rousey. WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon confirmed in late 2019 that another show like this is something that they’re pushing to get done.
Ripley started out by talking about there are so many females in WWE that she feels like WWE needs to do something extra whether that be for the talent, a new title, another Mae Young Classic, or Evolution.
She stated that she would love for there to be another Mae Young Classic in order to see other athletes out there that are trying to get into WWE.
She continued, “I would love to see another Evolution. I would absolutely love it! That was so much fun. Dakota (Kai) and I actually opened up Evolution in a dark match for the NXT UK Women’s Championship. So being in the first match to ever come out on Evolution is insane! It’s another thing in the history books for me that not many people will probably know, but I know.
Another Evolution would be fantastic because we do need that stage and we need to shine the way that we should shine.”
Ripley also talked about the inspiration for her ring name, wrestling at WrestleMania 36, and more. You can check out the full interview here.
