Amidst a wild episode of Monday Night Raw, WWE announced a huge matchup for the upcoming all-women’s PPV Evolution: Lita vs. Mickie James.
Lita will return to in-ring action for the first time since her retirement in 2006, outside of sporadic appearances such as her recent entry in the women’s Royal Rumble match. The former four time women’s champion will go up against another star of her era: current Raw roster member Mickie James.
WWE put out the following press release announcing the matchup:
At WWE Evolution, two past rivals will once again go to war, as Lita suits up to bring her extreme arsenal against the dynamic Mickie James at the first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view on Sunday, Oct. 28.
Together, the two Superstars have captured 10 Women’s Championships, with Lita winning four titles and James earning six. Both competitors can boast a championship victory over the other, including Mickie’s win in Lita’s retirement match at Survivor Series back in 2006. Fast-forward to 2018 where this storied rivalry is now set to be renewed in groundbreaking fashion.
Don’t miss this highly-anticipated rematch 12 years in the making, Sunday, Oct. 28, at 7 ET/4 PT, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network, featuring women’s championship matches from Raw, SmackDown LIVE, NXT and NXT UK, as well as the final of the second annual Mae Young Classic 2018.
