News that Evolution hadn't been included as part of WWE's currently 2019 pay-per-view schedule sparked speculation last week, with some sources taking it as evidence that the company didn't plan on following up on 2018's all-women event.
WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon has now commented on the matter in a new interview with The Atlantic, and although she speaks on Evolution directly, the words will do nothing to stem the speculation.
"We haven't announced any plans yet for Evolution but we have a lot of things in the works right now," said McMahon, noting that the original pay-per-view was the number one worldwide trending topic, despite airing at the same time as the World Series' last game.
If WWE are planning on hosting a second Evolution event, it's odd that they haven't already announced it. While their pay-per-view calendar is subject to change, the company have already revealed the dates for most of their big 2019 events, and with Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch expected to headline WrestleMania 35, one would assume they'd prioritise Evolution.
One thing that's worth noting is that Evolution 2018 initially suffered from slow ticket sales. It was one of the year's best PPVs, but perhaps this has given WWE pause.
