Triple H's Eyes Were Opened To Women's Wrestling By Mae Young Classic

Triple H was surprised by the depth of women wrestlers around the world.

On Monday, Stephanie McMahon was the one who made the announcement of Evolution which will be an all women pay-per-view on October 28th. The event has been a long time coming since the days of the "Diva's revolution" which eventually became the "women's revolution."

In an interview with Sky Sports, McMahon's husband and WWE executive Triple H spoke about changing how he recruited women and the drastic change to his perception after last year's Mae Young Classic. 

"In the beginning when we were first changing how we trained the women at the performance center in NXT, I thought it might take longer," said Triple H. "When I really started to think this can take place so much faster is because when we did the Mae Young Classic for the first time last year, as we dug into the women for the show, I started to realize the depth of women out there, doing this on their own, with no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow of trying to pursue their dream. Them just out there grinding every day just trying to make it," he added. 

Perhaps rightfully, the next Mae Young Classic will conclude during the Evolution pay-per-view and every Women's Championship under the WWE umbrella will be defended at the event.
