The momentous news set the social media ablaze, of fans and WWE superstars alike. 

In case you didn't know...

There have long been rumours of the possibility of WWE hosting an all women's pay-per-view. Over the past week rumours also surfaced of a Women's Tag Team Championship category and a Women's Intercontinental Championship category possibly being announced by Stephanie on Raw. While the announcement confirmed neither, at the rate at which WWE's Women's Division is improving, the titles may not be too far away from becoming a reality. 

The heart of the matter

The historic announcement saw the presence of a number of superstars from both SmackDown Live and even from NXT despite the announcement taking place on the Red Brand's Show. The pay-per-view is set to feature matches for the Raw Women's Championship, as well as the NXT Women's Championship and even the SmackDown Women's Championship. It will also feature the final of the Mae Young Classic tournament.

On the stage, while the announcement was taking place the following list of SmackDown and NXT stars were present.

  1. Asuka (SmackDown Live)
  2. The IIconics (Billie Kay and Peyton Royce - SmackDown Live)
  3. Becky Lynch (SmackDown Live)
  4. Carmella (SmackDown Live)
  5. Lana (SmackDown Live)
  6. Zelina Vega (SmackDown Live)
  7. Nikki Cross (NXT)

Nikki Cross was the sole representative of the NXT brand as she was already on tour with the SmackDown Live roster.

What's next?

The Women of WWE are set to do battle at the first ever All Women's pay-per-view, Evolution on the 28th of October. Before they get there, however, they each have an obstacle to overcome, be it SummerSlam, Takeover: Brooklyn 4, or even the Mae Young Classic.
