WWE Evolution 2018 Spoilers

Raw Women's Championship Match: Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Nikki Bella

This is going to be a mess, but at least it isn't Brie Bella who's getting the title shot. It makes sense WWE would want to book a popular person against Rousey, but we all know the end result is going to be awful.

PREDICTION: Ronda Rousey retains the championship by submission.

SmackDown Women's Championship Last Woman Standing Match: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair

WWE loves this stipulation, so I'm not surprised. The winner of this is entirely dependent upon what WWE wants to do at Survivor Series. If they want to have champion vs. champion, then Becky Lynch retains. If they want to do something else, Flair might very well win the title.

PREDICTION: Becky Lynch retains the title.

Mae Young Classic 2018 Tournament Finals: Toni Storm vs. Io Shirai

At the time I'm writing this, the second round of tapings just happened, and Tegan Nox was injured. I'm at least partially wondering if at any point, she was supposed to make it to the semifinals or possibly the finals, if not even win the tournament. I'm very interested in how Toni Storm is in this, as I thought she would FOR SURE be in the UK women's title picture. Since that's not the case, I'm wondering what's going to happen there, and if this means that maybe Storm wins this tournament. However, I'm still going with Shirai.

PREDICTION: Io Shirai wins.

NXT Women's Championship Match: Kairi Sane (c) vs. Shayna Baszler

Once the shock of Sane winning the title happened, I figured Baszler would get her rematch here. It just makes sense. Then, Sane can move on to someone else (Bianca Belair, probably) at TakeOver: WarGames.

PREDICTION: Kairi Sane will probably retain, but there's still a chance Baszler wins it back.

Alexa Bliss and Mickie James vs. Trish Stratus and Lita

I had said before when the two singles matches were announced that it would have made more sense for this to be a tag team situation instead, so I'm glad they changed their original plan and decided to go with that.

PREDICTION: Trish Stratus and Lita win.

Battle Royal

They've announced that the winner of this match will earn a future title shot, and I'm sure there isn't a guaranteed list of people who will be competing, as it'll be the lump "throw anyone in there who has nothing else to do" idea.

Advertised participants so far = Alicia Fox, Alundra Blayze, Asuka, Billie Kay, Carmella, Dana Brooke, Ember Moon, Ivory, Kelly Kelly, Lana, Mandy Rose, Maria Kanellis, Michelle McCool, Molly Holly, Naomi, Nia Jax, Peyton Royce, Sonya Deville, Tamina, Torrie Wilson


The Riott Squad vs. Natalya, Sasha Banks and Bayley

Good lord, could WWE try any less? Could there be a more generic, boring, bland, flat, uninspiring match to book on this card than this? Awful. Absolutely awful. The idea is mundane, the "build" (if you can call it that) was a cop-out, and I'd rather have seen all of these women just in the battle royal than having this match.

PREDICTION: The Riott Squad wins. I don't know. I don't care. Neither do you. Don't lie.

PREDICTED MATCHES (as of 10/22/2018)

NXT UK Women's Championship Match: Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Isla Dawn

WWE planned this so poorly. People will be watching Evolution knowing that Rhea Ripley is the champion and then, after however many weeks it takes to air the pre-taped episodes we've known the outcomes for for weeks upon weeks, THEN they'll see Ripley get crowned the champion. Wow. Ridiculous. Isla Dawn isn't going to take the title here.

Update: this actually happened on the tapings, so the situation is even more confusing and this may not be scheduled, but even if it is, it wouldn't make any sense, so...

PREDICTION: Rhea Ripley will retain.

I'm assuming nothing else. For those wondering who would still be available to be inserted into the card, the women who haven't been booked yet are: Brie Bella (technically), Zelina Vega + Maryse + the NXT and NXT UK rosters + other returning rumored stars
