Mark Henry Wants Former Women's Champion to Return for WWE Evolution

Gail Kim

On October 28th, WWE will make history by presenting their first-ever all-female PPV known as WWE Evolution. On Busted Open Radio (co-hosted by Mark Henry), Charlotte Flair was a guest and talked about the upcoming event and her role:

"I want to be the main event but again it's an all women's pay-per-view and the card is extremely stacked and if people have been paying attention it's 'Then, Now, Forever.' So I think we have women from the past obviously Lita and Trish are confirmed, but no one knows what role they'll be playing as well as NXT being involved. With my competitive nature, I want to be in the main event, but knowing I shouldn't be disappointed because there is going to be so much brilliant talent on the show that night."

Henry piped in that he would love to see Gail Kim return to the company for one night (even though she has previously stated that she has no intention of being in attendance):

"I hope in all the worls of worlds that WWE reaches out to Gail Kim. She's one of my favorites and I'm not just saying that because we're friends. I'm saying that from a professional talent standpoint. There's very few women that have put the psychology into their matches and the storytelling that Gail has. You know I just really, really hope that there are people outside of the other companies that can respect what WWE is enough to say, 'we want our women's champion to be involved in something like that.' Because it means a lot to the world of women's wrestling, not just WWE. You know the Tessa Blanchards of the world. There are several high-level female wrestlers in the world. I hope Jazz is able to come back and experience this and people that have opened the doors and paved the way for that to happen. I think it should be cross-branded. I think all women should be included and not just WWE because I think it would make more impact for people to go back to their specific places in the world of women's wrestling knowing that they were a part of a movement of something that was bigger than wrestling. I think that's what's going to happen, it's gonna be bigger than wrestling."
