After being advertised to the crowd at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV tonight, one of the matches for WWE’s Evolution pay-per-view is now official.
WWE showed a graphic tonight that said Alexa Bliss will be facing Trish Stratus at Evolution, and the company has since confirmed the match. The PPV is taking place at the Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, New York on October 28.
Bliss is set to defend the Raw Women’s Championship against Ronda Rousey at SummerSlam tomorrow.
Stratus returned to the ring for the first time in nearly seven years during the women’s Royal Rumble match this January. Along with Lita, she was confirmed for Evolution when WWE announced the PPV last month. WWE has hyped that over 50 wrestlers from the past and present will participate in the event.
WWE has also noted that Evolution will feature Raw, SmackDown, NXT, and NXT United Kingdom Women’s Championship matches, and the Mae Young Classic finals will be held at the PPV after they were set during two nights of tapings earlier this month.
