– Above is video of Cathy Kelley talking to WWE Hall of Famers Trish Stratus and Lita about their win over Mickie James and Alicia Fox at WWE Evolution tonight. They credited their history with tonight’s win and talked about being excited about the rest of the show.

– The dark match before tonight’s WWE Evolution pay-per-view at the Nassau Coliseum on Long Island, NY saw WWE NXT UK Champion Rhea Ripley retain her title over Dakota Kai.
