2018 has been a historic year for women in WWE. 

Back in January, the promotion held it's first ever female Royal Rumble - which was won by Asuka. 

And since the beginning of the year, the revolution has gone from strength to strength. 

PUSHING ON 

Just last month on RAW, Vince McMahon was joined in the ring by his daughter, Stephanie, who made another historic announcement. 

She revealed that in October, WWE will be holding their first ever all-women's pay-per-view, Evolution. 

At the event in New York, all four of the female roster titles will be on the line. 

That means the RAW Women's Championship, the SmackDown Women's belt, the NXT women's title and the United Kingdom Women's Championship will all be defended. 

But those won't be the only matches on the card.

THE FIRST CONFIRMED MATCH

The final bout of WWE's 2018 Mae Young Classic tournament will also be taking place that night - and after this week's tapings, we already know who will be in it. 

The tournament was recorded in advance and will actually begin airing on September 5 and run all the way to the Evolution PPV. 

As nothing is secret in pro-wrestling these days, the two women who will be on the card in the final match of the tournament in October have been confirmed.

It will be Toni Storm vs Io Shirai - and the winner will be crowned just the second ever winner of the Mae Young Classic. 

FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS

Last year, in the inaugural tournament, it was Kairi Sane who won, beating now NXT Women's champ Shayna Baszler in the final. 

Interestingly, Sane also beat Storm in her semi-final match. But with the Japanese star now in NXT, Toni has been able to go at least one step further and reach the final in 2018.

The 22-year-old will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of Sane - by winning the tournament and making the move to NXT shortly after. 

However, to do so, Storm will have to beat the highly talented Io Shirai - so when they do meet at Evolution, expect them to put on a show.
