The first all-women's pay-per-view, WWE Evolution, is over 6 weeks away but that is not stopping fans from speculating on some potential matches with current and returning stars.
A "leaked" card has been spreading on social media in recent days. We didn't report on it because we wanted to get confirmation since there have been many cases of "leaked" cards posted online that ended up being something that a fan typed up.
The card includes some of the matches already announced but also lists the following:
- Rhea Ripley vs. Jinny vs. Killer Kelly vs. Dakota Kai for the NXT UK Women's Championship
- A special announcement
- Carmella Talk Show with the ladies of GLOW
- The Riott Squad vs. Sasha Banks, Bayley and Ivory
- A 20 Woman battle royal with the winner facing Kairi Sane for the NXT Women's Championship
- Asuka vs. Ember Moon
- Naomi vs. Melina
- Alicia Fox & Kelly Kelly vs. The IIconics vs. Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville vs. Beth Phoenix & Natalya for the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship
- Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women's Championship
Some of these matches are common sense (ie. Lynch vs. Flair and a battle royal to get everyone involved seem likely) but others are not currently scheduled for the show. In fact, we were told that WWE has not reached out to some of the former Superstars listed on the "leaked" card. The Naomi vs. Melina rumors started last weekend when Naomi said in an interview that she would love to wrestle Melina at Evolution and Melina welcomed that suggestion.
So, just to be clear...the "leaked" match card is not real. WWE management has an idea of what they want for the show but several of the matches for the show have yet to be finalized.
Here is the confirmed match card:
- Alexa Bliss vs. Trish Stratus
- Lita vs. Mickie James
- Raw Women's Championship Match
- Smackdown Women's Championship Match
- NXT Women's Championship Match
- NXT UK Women's Championship Match
- 2018 Mae Young Classic Finals
