Raw Superstar returns from injury; Battle Royal announced for WWE Evolution

With WWE Evolution a few weeks away and a ton of talent announced without an official match, it was a safe bet to assume that there would be a Battle Royal at the inaugural event.

On Monday Night Raw, a Battle Royal was indeed announced, with the winner getting a future Raw/SmackDown Women’s Championship shot. Below are the current Superstars scheduled for the match:

  • Torrie Wilson
  • Ember Moon
  • Nia Jax
  • Dana Brooke
  • Alicia Fox
  • Tamina Snuka
  • Asuka
  • Mandy Rose
  • Sonya Deville
  • Lana
  • Carmella
  • Naomi
  • Billie Kay
  • Peyton Royce

Tamina Snuka made her return after 9 months away recovering from an injury, teaming with Dana Brooke in a losing effort against Nia Jax and Ember Moon.

The current card for WWE Evolution is as follows:

  • Raw Women’s Championship: Nikki Bella vs Ronda Rousey (c)
  • Last Woman Standing Match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship: Charlotte Flair vs Becky Lynch (c)
  • NXT Women’s Championship: Shayna Baszler vs Kairi Sane (c)
  • NXT UK Women’s Championship: Isla Dawn vs Rhea Ripley (c)
  • Battle Royal
  • Mae Young Classic Finals: Io Shirai vs Toni Storm
  • Lita & Trish Stratus vs Mickie James & Alexa Bliss

  • Kayfabe_Is_Dead

    I feel like a battle royal is the easy way out, but also an easy way to include legends and one-offs.

    Also, where the heck is Bayley in all of this? Sorely underutilized…
