Last year saw the first ever all-women's WWE PPV, Evolution, which was held on October 28, and was a giant leap for women's wrestling in WWE.

Evolution doesn't feature in this year's WWE PPV list, and now reports have emerged as to why the PPV was dropped by WWE. Wrestling Observer Newsletter are reporting that WWE have not gone ahead with the PPV this year because they fear that the PPV may fail to garner interest without Ronda Rousey around.

Rousey hasn't been featured on WWE television since her loss to Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 35, where she lost the RAW Women's title.
