As far as pay-per-views go in the WWE, the first-ever all-women's event - Evolution - was an unqualified success.

The expectations going into the show weren't that high to begin with, with many willing to give WWE a chance making a groundbreaking move, whilst some saw it as simply a marketing ploy by Stephanie McMahon.

We got fantastic matches between Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch, Toni Storm and Io Shirai, and Shayna Baszler and Kairi Sane, and a pretty-fun main event where Ronda Rousey defeated Nikki Bella which received mainstream attention.

Compared to most crowds in recent memory, the live audience were very vocal in their support for the females, which was nice to witness.

With the successful trial run now under their belt, a second event of a similar nature is bound to occur.

That will mean the creative team will be looking for fresh ideas to make the second show a similar success to the inaugural.

Dave Meltzer has stated in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, per Cageside Seats, that an idea being banded about backstage is bringing back an old concept used in the 1980s and 1990s - and sparsely since the year 2000 - to elevate talents to the top of the card.

WWE Evolution was an unqualified success - and there is talk of bringing back a tournament for a second all-womens event.

The King Of The Ring tournament arguably made Stone Cold Steve Austin the star that he is, and past winners also include Bret Hart, Randy Savage and Triple H.

And a 'Queen Of The Ring' edition is the talk of backstage gossip according to Meltzer, and to be fair it would be a welcome edition.

The last tournament of its kind on WWE television was when Wade Barrett defeated Neville in the finals in 2015, becoming King Barrett.

We all know that amounted to nothing, but with more attention than ever now on the women's division, a new 'Queen' being crowned could make for a good storyline for someone.

Let us know in the comments below who YOU would make the first-ever 'Queen Of The Ring'.
