WWE Rumors: Reported Reason For Changing Evolution Singles Matches

Published

on

WWE Evolution Alexa Mickie Lita Trish

As was noted, last night on RAW we saw the scheduled Trish Stratus vs. Alexa Bliss and Mickie James vs. Lita matches for WWE’s Evolution on October 28th changed, as Trish brought out her WWE Hall Of Fame friend after challenging Mickie and ‘Little Miss Bliss’ to a Tag Team Match instead.

While there was some early speculation as to why the match was changed, Dave Meltzer reports in the latest Wrestling Observer Radio that the switch was always WWE’s plan. According to Meltzer, it was all an affect of the now announced Ronda Rousey vs. Nikki Bella match as the company reportedly wanted to wait until they could shoot an angle before making that match official.

Therefore, Bliss vs. Stratus was announced in an early attempt to boost ticket sales for the event. This would be why we saw both Nikki Bella turn on Ronda last night and the change to Lita and Trish teaming together at the same time.

Also currently scheduled for Evolution is an NXT Women’s Championship match with Kairi Sane defending against Shayna Baszler, plus the Finals of this year’s Mae Young Classic. Evolution comes your way live on pay-per-view and the WWE Network on Sunday, October 28th at 7PM EST.

EA’s Take: I think what Meltzer’s saying makes sense, but there could be other factors involved in the decision as well. Such as, Lita and Trish haven’t had a WWE singles match in years. Also, it makes sense in the aspect of having more room on the card. We’ve already got four matches set, plus there will be a SmackDown Women’s Title match, possibly an NXT UK Women’s Title match. I just figure WWE is going to want to get as many women on this show and in a match as possible.
