HISTORIC TRAILBLAZING Edition
Toni Storm vs. Io Shirai (Mae Young Classic 2018 Finals)
>After eight weeks of intense action featuring 32 of the world’s top female wrestlers, the 2018 Mae Young Classic has come down to two competitors.
>Australia’s Toni Storm will battle Japan’s Io Shirai in the tournament Finals this Sunday at WWE Evolution, the first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view, which streams live, exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network.
>In making it to this point, Storm and Shirai have exhibited tremendous heart and determination, as well as demonstrated their considerable firepower. The Lightning Down Under, who advanced to the Semifinals in last year’s tournament, earned her berth with victories over Jinny, Hiroyo Matsumoto, Mia Yim and the iconic Meiko Satomura. The Genius of the Sky, meanwhile, triumphed over Xia Brookside, Zeuxis and Deonna Purrazzo before besting the vicious Rhea Ripley.
>With those tough battles behind them, Storm and Shirai now prepare to meet head-on. Will Storm’s hard-hitting offense, highlighted by her ferocious Storm Zero Tiger Driver, spell victory for the popular Aussie? Or can The Genius of the Sky, whose signing with WWE made headlines around the globe this past summer, follow in the footsteps of her good friend Kairi Sane and take home the Mae Young Classic trophy?
>See for yourself when history is made at WWE Evolution, streaming live this Sunday at 7 ET/4 PT, exclusively on WWE Network!
NXT Women’s Champion Kairi Sane vs. Shayna Baszler
>One classic rivalry has already been renewed for WWE Evolution. Now, it has been confirmed the groundBREAKing all-women’s pay-per-view will host another.
>NXT Women’s Champion Kairi Sane and Shayna Baszler will once again turn up the heat within their scorching rivalry on Sunday, Oct. 28, as they go toe-to-toe with the top prize of the NXT Women’s division on the line.
>The Pirate Princess and The Queen of Spades have been embroiled in highly personal competition ever since they first collided in the 2017 Mae Young Classic Final, which resulted in Sane coming out on top to claim the prestigious honor of inaugural Mae Young Classic winner. Both Superstars would then go on to channel their aggression in two more thrilling matches. Baszler topped Sane on NXT in February, but The Pirate Princess later evened the score at TakeOver: Brooklyn IV, picking up the NXT Women’s Title in the process. Since Brooklyn, though, Baszler has been incensed on cutting her rival’s reign short and dominating the black-and-yellow brand with a championship-clad iron fist.
>Will Sane be able to stop The Queen of Spades in her tracks and maintain her position as the black flagbearer for the NXT Women’s division? Or will The Pirate Princess’s newfound “killer instinct” fall to Baszler’s coldblooded fury?
>Don’t miss WWE Evolution, streaming Sunday, Oct. 28, at 7 ET/4 PT, live on the award-winning WWE Network.
