WWE Rumors: Reported Reason For Changing Evolution Singles Matches

Published

on

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.

WWE News: The Latest On Crown Jewel, No Plans To Change Locations Yet

Published

on

To say that controversy continues to follow the relationship between the WWE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia might be the understatement of the year the latest bit surrounding the upcoming Crown Jewel event and the company is beyond the scope of just professional wrestling.

After the disappearance of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi and what many to believe his murder at the hands of the Saudis has led the WWE to come under fire not only from their own Universe, but United States government officials as well (read that here). Earlier today, it was noted that WWE.com was no longer showing the the link to purchase tickets and location, leading many to believe this is an indication the show will be heading someplace else or completely cancelled.

In an update to that story, both Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer and David Bixenspan of Deadspin have confirmed with the company that the show is moving forward as scheduled. Additionally, a company spokesman told Bixenspan that any removal of the link or location for Crown Jewel was done in error, stating that, “The event should be listed”.

To further proof of WWE going ahead with the show in some capacity, two World Cup Qualifiers have been announced for tomorrow night’s RAW as Drew McIntyre takes on Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose faces Dolph Ziggler.

According to PWInsider, at this time plans will not be changing “unless something drastic happens”. To further that, there has been speculation that WWE may have given itself a “soft deadline” of tomorrow to make a final decision. With World Cup matches being announced for RAW, some are taking that had drawn the conclusion that the location isn’t going to be changing. This all comes despite even more pressure from United States Senator Richard Blumenthal, who said the following to WCBS News Radio 820 on Friday:

“I would hope that WWE will recognize on its own a conscience and conviction if there is proof that Saudi officials approved and ordered this kind of killing, and I would lean first on the United States government to do its duty so that it can lead private interests like WWE, and the first place to look is to the United States of America.”
