Tegan Nox Says She'd Love To Wrestle Ruby Riott Or Molly Holly If Evolution 2 Becomes A Reality

With talks about a second Evolution pay-per-view happening, Tegan Nox already has an opponent or two in mind if that show were to become a reality.

Right before she faces NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai on NXT, Nox spoke with Comic Book to talk about the growth of women's wrestling in WWE within the past decade. Speaking on a potential Evolution 2, Nox said she would love to wrestle in it and says if she had to pick an opponent, it would be Ruby Riott and Molly Holly if she had to pick a legend.

"It's got to be Ruby Riott," Nox said. "She's right at the top for me, but if it's a legends dream match, obviously it's Molly Holly, but Ruby Riott is my next pick. I mean, she's incredible. She's such a good friend, and an incredible athlete and an incredible wrestler. She's my main pick that I want to wrestle, so Ruby Riott at Evolution 2."

Nox spoke on the growth of women's wrestling in recent years and how NXT has been able to provide the women unique opportunities to wrestle in big matches. Nox ended her comments by saying she is excited to see what the next 10 years could look like for women's wrestling. 

"I've loved just witnessing the Evolution and seeing the doors open with people like Molly Holly, Lita, and Trish, and then 5 years ago with Bayley, Sasha, Charlotte, Becky, and then Shayna Baszler, who opened doors for so many others," Nox said. "Now we get a chance to elevate that even more and have fun doing it, and break even more boundaries by having In Your House, and Great American Bash and doing some cool things, and having the trust to be able to do Street Fights and be able to do Ladder Matches. I mean, who knows what the next generation is going to do, and how much they're going to skyrocket that, because there's only one way for this to go, and that's up, and I'm super excited to see what happens in the next 10 years."

Shirai vs. Nox will take place on the July 15 episode of NXT. Fightful will have live coverage.
