It was only matter of time before the WWE took the next step for women’s wrestling to on par with their male counterparts. Stephanie McMahon announced a new WWE pay-per-view Monday on Raw that will ensure just that.

Evolution will take place at the Nassau Coliseum on Sunday, October 28th and it will feature title defenses from the RAW Women’s Champion, the SmackDown Women’s Champion, and the NXT Women’s Champion. Also on the card: the final match from the upcoming second Mae Young Classic tournament.
“This historic event marks another milestone in WWE’s women’s evolution,” said Stephanie McMahon, WWE Chief Brand Officer. “The spotlight just got brighter for these athletic, talented women, who will once again showcase to the world that they can break down barriers and blaze their own trails.”
On the WWE’s pay-per-view calendar, Evolution falls squarely in between the WWE’s upcoming Super Show-Down in Melbourne, Australia, and Survivor Series, separated by three weeks in either direction. With its first all-women pay-per-view, WWE has committed itself to put on a show on a scale with their other pay-per-view events.
