WWE Adds Six-Woman Tag Team Match to Evolution PPV this Sunday

A new match has been added to WWE’s Evolution pay-per-view on Sunday and if you watched Raw last week (or read my review here), it was obvious what it was. The trio of Sasha Banks, Bayley and Natalya aka “three babyfaces with nothing to do for several months” will face off with the Riott Squad trio of Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan and Sarah Morgan. That trio put over Ronda Rousey and the Bella Twins twice recently.

What’s interesting about this is that on the same Evolution card is a battle royal where the winner gets a Women’s Title match. If you were any of these women, wouldn’t you want to be in the battle royal instead of the generic six-woman tag team match that WWE does all the time? I’m just saying that’s what most people would want.

Here’s the updated lineup.

Raw Women’s Championship: Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Nikki Bella

Smackdown Women’s Championship Last Woman Standing: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair – That’s the main event to me, but WWE may put the Rousey match on last.

Trish Stratus and Lita vs. Mickie James and Alexa Bliss

Sasha Banks, Bayley and Natalya vs. Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan

NXT Women’s Championship: Kairi Sane vs. Shayna Baszler

Battle Royal for a future Championship match – Names include: Nia Jax, Dana Brooke, Alicia Fox, Ember Moon, Peyton Royce, Billie Kay, Tamina, Asuka, Mandy Rose, Carmella, Lana, Sonya Deville, Naomi, Torrie Wilson, Alundra Blayze, Ivory, Michelle McCool, Molly Holly, Kelly Kelly and Maria Kanellis.

Mae Young Classic Tournament Final – I won’t list the names because that’s a spoiler.

NXT UK Championship Match – I won’t list a spoiler here either.

That looks to be the full card with eight matches, but it’s possible that WWE will add more.
