I was entertained by every match. It also included a MOTY candidate in Becky vs Charlotte. More importantly it did not go on for 5 hours.

Also liked how The Riott Squad vs Nattie, Sasha and Bayley actually had a story running throughout the match.

Battle Royal was a bit shit but who cares its a battle royal. Asuka and Moon have a great rivalry and Nia vs Ronda is cool.

The 2 NXT matches were great. Io and Sane are amazing.

The opener was entertaining because of the botches and the crowd were red hot so it worked.

I didn't like that Becky was begging Charlotte when she rose from the pile of chairs. Like why the fuck was she begging? The match was great and Becky is a superstar.

Ronda vs Nikki was a good match. Maybe Nikki had too much offense, but then again Ronda's head hit the ring post 3 times and I don't care who you are that needs to be sold. So Nikki dominating a portion of the match is 100% justified.

Very enjoyable show. 8/10 better than Crown Jewel

it was pretty good. I guess the one big gripe I have with the event itself is that it felt like a charity case, and rather than empowering women you kinda had to exclude them from the men, which doesn't really sit that well with me. For example, a match like Charlotte/Becky or Storm/Shirai would have meant so much more for womens wrestling if it competed head to head with the men's matches on a normal PPV. Ronda said it best, back in her UFC days, when she said that it's best when you don't act like there's a difference between male and female athletes in your company, and you just let things happen organically. If the women outperform the men, then they get the main event spot (like they did in NXT with Sasha/Bayley or Sasha/Charlotte on the main roster).

Evolution as a whole just felt like a big PR project to make the company look better, while the wrestling and storytelling aspect just played a side role for most of the matches on this card. The "women who paved the way" from the past were all pretty shite to put it bluntly. Both Trish and Lita stumbled their way through the ring and the battle royal speaks for itself, really. So if we could stop doing that for future womens projects, that'd be nice. I feel as if many people give these things a pass tho because they feel pity for womens wrestling, which seems counterproductive to me.

A small thing about the Charlotte/Becky match was the awkward stopping of the count because Charlotte apparently thought that kneeing counted as standing in a Last Man Standing match lol. But it's all good tho, the match was great.

Overall I'm feeling a 6/10. The 3 matches that stood out to me were Storm/Shirai, Charlotte/Becky and the main event between Ronda and Nikki. The rest just kinda fell flat and might as well have been a Raw or Smackdown match, quality wise

I think I agree with the whole PR project criticism. It is great that they are showcasing women more but the issue comes with how it feels forced rather than natural. It undos the whole message and it labels women doing big things as the exception rather than the norm.

Char and Becky seem to be getting the most praise for this PPV and plenty have said they should have been the main event. I am not surprised.

Still would have been better had this PPV happened a year or two before the Saudi deal cause it just looks like forced marketing. Oh well.

I wouldn't get that impression from watching the PPV...
I'd get that impression from REAL oppression of women happening in Saudi and several other places in the world today.
I guess in a way... this PPV kind of highlights it without addressing it as a problem.

They are more then capable of putting on good matches during normal PPVs... They just aren't treated the same in WWE.

When will woman's wrestling in WWE just be treated as a norm
Never. They will be treated as victims or they will be treated as above men, depending on the PR. Welcome to the way of the world!
I don't think dividing men and women is very equal at all... Oh well.

These woman are very talented but the world love the empowering girl power narrative. Would be way more of an evolution if they didn't have to push this narrative.

The storyline elements and wrestling on this show was great. That is the only thing I choose to direct my attention. Therefore this show was great.

That is what is trendy for marketing. That is why they are doing it. Can't blame them, plenty of other companies take advantage of people's causes/views/etc. like this.
