Evolution, WWE’s first ever all women’s pay-per-view event took place last night from the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, East Garden City, New York. The show turned out to be highly successful as Superstars of the present and legends of the past wrestled in front of the fans.
The two matches that closed Evolution were Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship and Ronda Rousey vs. Nikki Bella for the RAW Women’s Championship.
However, it was the RAW Women’s Championship match that headlined the event and was actually the last match on the card.
Lynch retained the title against Flair in the first-ever Last Woman Standing match. The bout has already been claimed by many to be a strong Match Of The Year contender as fans remained witness to a stellar performance from both women throughout the match that kept them on the edges of their seats to the very last minute.
Rousey retained the championship gold via submission by putting Nikki in the arm-bar and causing her to tap out. The match was a solid presentation and both women silenced many critics and surpassed the expectations of most.
However, the professional wrestling sphere is of the feeling that it was Lynch vs. Flair that should have actually closed Evolution. The former best friends had the hottest wrestling feud in the Women’s Division in recent times and the match itself speaks for the fact that it should have been the one to end the night.
Many are of the opinion that although their performance was stellar and mesmerizing, Lynch and Flair deserve a far bigger stage to showcase their highly personal, highly physical rivalry.
The victorious Irish Lasskicker took to Twitter to share a photo when Rousey followed her on the platform post-Evolution. Lynch took a shot at the former UFC star indicating that Rousey vs. Bella wasn’t able to dethrone her and Flair’s match that stands as the show-stealer.
