WWE Evolution was a historic night of women’s wrestling which set the bar for the Women’s Revolution in the years to come.

The show included women from WWE’s past, present, and future but interestingly in the build-up to the event, the company dropped the tagline about their being more than 50 women taking part in the show.

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that this was because all of the NXT women who were spotted at ringside for Kairi Sane’s title defense against Shayna Baszler were supposed to be part of the show and were in the original plans, but this obviously changed since only Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir were part of the match but the likes of Candice LaRae and Bianca Belair were spotted at ringside.

It is unknown as to why WWE decided to pull NXT talent, since the original announcement stated that the women of the developmental roster would be part of the historic occasion and whilst WWE did follow up on that promise by staging an NXT Championship match at a main roster pay-per-view for the first time, these were the only two NXT stars who were given a match on the card.

The likes of Belair and Lacey Evans were once rumored to be having a match as part of the show, but it appears that all of these plans were scrapped, perhaps because of where Evolution fell when it came to NXT’s bulk tapings and the company would have been unable to cover the results.

Either way, the NXT women were part of the show even though they didn’t wrestle and it’s now hoped that this will become an annual pay-per-view so the women who missed out last year will be able to appear at one in the future.
