NXT superstar Tegan Nox has named Ruby Riott and Molly Holly as two women she’d be interested in facing at the rumored Evolution 2020 event.
Evolution was an all women’s pay-per-view event which took place in 2018. Rumors have been surfacing over the last few weeks about the WWE hosting a second Evolution event in late August of this year.
During a recent chat with ComicBook, Tegan Nox spoke about Evolution 2020 and revealed Ruby Riott would be her dream match. If she was to take on a legend, she’d want it to be Molly Holly.
“It’s got to be Ruby Riott. She’s right at the top for me, but if it’s a legends dream match, obviously it’s Molly Holly, but Ruby Riott is my next pick. I mean, she’s incredible. She’s such a good friend, and an incredible athlete and an incredible wrestler. She’s my main pick that I want to wrestle, so Ruby Riott at Evolution 2.” she said.
Nox reflected on the women’s evolution which has been taking place in the WWE over the last five years.
“I’ve loved just witnessing the Evolution and seeing the doors open with people like Molly Holly, Lita, and Trish, and then 5 years ago with Bayley, Sasha, Charlotte, Becky, and then Shayna Baszler, who opened doors for so many others,” Nox said. “Now we get a chance to elevate that even more and have fun doing it, and break even more boundaries by having In Your House, and Great American Bash and doing some cool things, and having the trust to be able to do Street Fights and be able to do Ladder Matches. I mean, who knows what the next generation is going to do, and how much they’re going to skyrocket that, because there’s only one way for this to go, and that’s up, and I’m super excited to see what happens in the next 10 years.”
Tegan Nox returns to action on tonight’s July 15, 2020 edition of WWE NXT when she challenges Io Shirai for the NXT Women’s Championship. The event will air on the USA Network from 8pm ET.
