REVEALED: Cover Artwork & New Details for 2018 ‘The Evolution of WWE’s Women’s Division’ DVD

April 16, 2018 by Daniel Bee

WWE Evolution of The Women's Division DVD - Logo

Last month WrestlingDVDNetwork.com exclusively revealed that this year WWE will finally be giving the Home Video treatment to the history of women’s wrestling in a form of a 3-disc DVD set entitled “Then, Now, Forever: The Evolution of WWE’s Women’s Division”.

Now, WWE has finalized the cover artwork for the June release and it will feature 22 female stars – Charlotte Flair, Paige, Sasha Banks, Ronda Rousey, Stephanie McMahon, Nia Jax, Asuka, Natalya, Bayley, Trish Stratus, Lita, Mickie James, Jacqueline, Beth Phoenix, Alundra Blayze, Naomi, Alexa Bliss, Nikki and Brie Bella, Becky Lynch, Mae Young and Wendi Richter.

Accompanying the artwork is a brand new official synopsis:

 

Then, Now, Forever: The Evolution of WWE’s Women’s Division

Much has changed since the days of Mae Young and the Fabulous Moolah. In the once-male-dominated world of sports entertainment.. women’s wrestling has evolved, and the ladies now stand eye-to-eye with their male counterparts. This was no small task, as it took years of revolutionary women doing extraordinary things to fully achieve.

From trailblazers like Alundra Blayze and Chyna… to pioneers like Lita and Trish Stratus… all the way to today’s awe-inspiring athletes such as Charlotte, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Alexa Bliss, and Asuka… the revolution was indeed televised, and you get to witness it all right here with some of the greatest and most groundbreaking women’s matches of all-time. From Wendi Richter to Ivory to Becky Lynch to Ronda Rousey… see how these amazing women helped shape the landscape of WWE today.


 
Amazon USA have just listed “Then, Now, Forever: The Evolution of WWE’s Women’s Division”; you can pre-order a copy right now by clicking here to Amazon.com.

Exclusive details we’ve got hold of confirm that the DVD will feature newly-filmed interview segments with an abundance of present-day Superstars in the WWE women’s division, including the likes of:

  • Stephanie McMahon
  • Charlotte Flair
  • Carmella
  • Alexa Bliss
  • Mickie James
  • Paige
  • Becky Lynch
  • Natalya

Joining the current crop of female stars, this compilation will also feature brand new interviews with legendary women wrestlers who helped pave the way, the first three of which we can reveal are:

  • Trish Stratus
  • Molly Holly
  • Victoria

Those segments will be intertwined with a collection of matches. WrestlingDVDNetwork.com has already learned that many of the historic “firsts” in WWE’s women’s division are confirmed for the set, such as the first-ever women’s cage match in WWE (Lita vs. Victoria from 2003), and the recent first-ever Money in the Bank, Hell in a Cell, Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber matches!

Our WWE DVD Release Dates page has not only updated with the Women’s DVD release date mentioned earlier but also the release date for Money in the Bank 2018.

The upcoming WWE PPV will see a release on DVD in July to the United States. Like Backlash, it has been scheduled as a 2-disc DVD due to the expected 4-hour runtime of future co-branded PPVs.

Information we have suggests that the collectible Topps trading cards will continue to be added to these PPV DVDs so expect to find them in both Backlash and Money in the Bank.

WWE Superstars from RAW and SmackDown Live try to further their careers by competing in multiple Superstar Money in the Bank Ladder Matches.

Who will claim their reward of a WWE Championship opportunity? And who will fall trying to climb the ladder of success?

Leaving Chyna off the cover is disgraceful, but you already knew WWE was going to do it.

This Rousey stuff is getting silly now. Chill, WWE.

RabidHeat

I think what people forget is there’s always a back cover for these things and you don’t blow all your biggest names on the front. So if one of your faves is missing on the front, there’s still the chance they could be on the back or spine. They have to represent all eras while also including something to draw the current fans on to make a purchase (i.e. Rousey), so there’s simply no way of pleasing everyone.

I’ll wait for the content to be released to judge this. It has potential to be a great set. I’m hoping AJ lee at least gets some time on this as well as Chyna. I’m also a huge Sherri Martel fan so fingers crossed.

Sensational Sherri was great in the ring or with Macho Man, Shawn Michaels etc.

I fear this DVD will have too much focus on the current women. It’s understandable but I want at least a few unreleased matches from the past.

Will this mess up the ppv DVD preorders for this year or will they fix them before they release?

Ronda Rousey on the DVD cover but no mention of AJ Lee. That seems interesting. Not surprising but interesting. Then again this is the Stephanie McMahon division. After all it was Stephanie that stood in the ring and declared the Women’s Revolution. At least that’s what WWE wants people to believe. I’m assuming that there probably won’t be an AJ Lee match unless it’s the match where she loses to Nikki “no talent” Bella.

Ronda is undoubtedly a big name but after ruining Asuka’s RR win celebration along with Alexa & Charlotte and then having only 1 match in WWE, I honestly disagree with the treatment she’s getting, now she’s on the cover of the Women’s dvd set and is gonna be included in it, maybe in more ways than one. I hope she doesn’t close out WM35 against Charlotte. Nothing against Rousey at all. I just don’t think as big of a name she is that she’s earned the right yet to close WM or any ppv or wrestle for the women’s title.… Read more »

Mr. T and Lawrence Taylor main evented WrestleManias in the past without having any prior matches. The difference between them and Ronda is if Ronda main events WrestleMania next year, by that point she would have been a member of the active roster for a full year. It’s not about who deserves the spot, it’s about who’s gonna draw the most money. If wrestling was based around which wrestlers deserve a spot, the business would be drastically different today.

The past was a different time. Things were done differently. But I still didn’t agree with Mr.T & LT closing out WM. It makes WM a joke when someone who hasn’t had enough matches closing out the biggest show of the year for the company. And of course it’s about who deserves to close out WM as it should. WM should rightly be a ppv card that you have to earn your place to be on, ESPECIALLY the closing match which SHOULD be reserved for the RR winner. Yeah there were 2 RRs so 2 winners this year and probably… Read more »

Big Show was in WWE for a little over a year when he main evented WM16. Same with King Kong Bundy when he main evented WM2. Brock was in WWE for about a year when he main evented WM19. Sid was in WWE for about 9 months when he main evented WM8. Yokozuna was in WWE for only 6 months when he main evented WM9. And there were plenty of other wrestlers at the time who you can say deserved the main event spot before those guys did. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been in the company or how… Read more »

Anan and LP1, your comments have strayed way off the point because despite only just having arrived in WWE, everybody you have listed there were already at least PRO WRESTLERS. The conversation here is about celebrities who weren’t previously wrestlers coming in and main eventing WrestleMania straight away.

LP1, I understand you were only replying to Anan, so this is more directed to him.

So Ronda Rousey has one match and makes the cover but Chyna doesn’t? Way to go WWE it makes perfect sense.

Shoe Face

Why would wwe go out of their way to promote a deceased pornstar?

Brandon Vendetta
WDN Reader
Brandon Vendetta

Because long before she did porn she was one of the most important women to ever step in the ring. She was the very first woman Intercontinental champion is that a good enough reason for you?

SRB

Mickie James also did pornography and is on Raw each week. Why does that never get brought up?

Mickie James posed for nude pics. Not porn.

SRB

Sorry man. But theres several scenes of her online. Ive seen a few on pornhub and i just looked and they are there. Unless its not her and the video info is wrong, but it looks like her.

Shoe Face
WDN Reader
Shoe Face

Mickie James did porn briefly and she was broke plus that was way before she got into pro wrestling. She’s had a much longer career as a pro wrestler and that’s what most fans will remember her for.

Most casuals wouldn’t know she did porn, only the die hard smarks would know this stuff.

Brandon Vendetta
WDN Reader
Brandon Vendetta

So it’s OK for WWE to have Mickie James on RAW each week even though she only briefly did porn but you ask why would WWE go out their way to promote a dead porn star(meaning Chyna). So if you are or ever were a porn star it’s OK if you are still alive but if you are a dead porn star it’s not OK? I just want to make sure I’m getting all this. What am I missing here? Are you serious Shoe Face? How is that OK in your eyes?

Shoe Face
WDN Reader
Shoe Face

What are you not getting? Fans will always remember chyna for doing porn because that’s what she did for years (along with drugs) up until she died.

When it comes to mickie james, do you think fans will remember her for her wrestling career or her brief period for doing porn at the end of the day? her wrestling career of course.

the last thing wwe needs is bad press.

Brandon Vendetta
WDN Reader
Brandon Vendetta

To say that fans will always remember Chyna for doing porn is an assumption. You don’t know that for sure.

Shoe Face
WDN Reader
Shoe Face

It’s not an assumption, she contributed more to porn than she did to pro wrestling due to her longevity in that line of work, along with drugs all the way until her death. She’s left a legacy and it’s not one wwe wants to constantly look back on.

Brandon Vendetta
WDN Reader
Brandon Vendetta

Now I know you are nuts sir you just confirmed it to everyone. She contributed more to porn than to WWE? OK man I think you need to get back on your meds.

Shoe Face
WDN Reader
Shoe Face

You can call me nuts but at least I’m not in denial which is what you’re doing. What else did she do other than win the Intercontinental Championship and enter the royal rumble?

Her sextape with x-pac sold 100,000 units and was more successful than her wrestling career, then she continued to do more porn in the last few years of her life along with hard drugs which spun her life outta control. Seriously, how do you promote someone like that and not get bad press for it?!?

Brandon Vendetta
WDN Reader
Brandon Vendetta

So WWE has never promoted anybody who has got bad press before?

Shoe Face
WDN Reader
Shoe Face

The last thing wwe needs is bad press. WWE are a family friendly program directed towards kids and teenagers … what kinda message you think they will send if they put a drug addict and pornstar on the cover of their dvd?

If you remember wwe did a Best of Canada dvd set featuring only Canadian wrestlers but it didn’t have Chris Benoit on it? How about we just forgive what he did and start putting his face and promoting him on dvds? ….

Brandon Vendetta
WDN Reader
Brandon Vendetta

OK Shoe Face then how about the Fabulous Moolah? If u want to talk about how the last thing WWE needs is bad press take her for example.Moolah pimped women out for years and did many other horrible things to alot of people. However she was put on a pedestal by WWE dispite all those horrible things she did.Not only that but she was the first woman ever to be put in the HOF.This whole argument has gone way beyond Chyna being on the cover of the dam DVD(which is what started this in the first place) Moolah despite her… Read more »

Shoe Face
WDN Reader
Shoe Face

Moolah’s past finally caught up to her. Notice the women’s battle royale at WrestleMania got its name changed when it was originally called the Fabulous Moolah Battle Royal?

You obviously don’t know how promoting things work. If you want Chyna to be promoted so much, then you may as well ask WWE to induct Chris Benoit into the HOF next year.

Good luck, buddy

Brandon Vendetta
WDN Reader
Brandon Vendetta

And good luck learning to read because if you knew how you would see that I already mentioned her getting her name taken off the battle royal.

Shoe Face

What Moolah did was her business. Wrestling is a ruthless business and that’s all she did, business. She kept it quiet and she certainly didnt get into porn, drugs or have overdoses whereas Chyna did which got out in the public.

I can’t believe how stupid you really are.

This is why the layout of these comments need to be fixed. You can’t tell who is commenting on which comment. I was talking about Mickie James. There’s been a video going around for years with a girl that resembles her, but it’s obvious it’s not her at all.

LP1
WDN Reader
LP1

Yeah she never did porn. She only posed nude for several magazines. The videos that are online claiming to be her are fake. It’s just a girl that looks like her. But a lot of people fall for it and are gonna believe it’s her no matter what you tell them.

Shoe Face
WDN Reader
Shoe Face

her wrestling career ended long ago that fans today remember her legacy for doing porn. And with wwe being a family friendly show, they won’t promote people who have done porn or any non PG acts. Why do you think she was not inducted into the wwe hof?

Brandon Vendetta
WDN Reader
Brandon Vendetta

Well we all know that’s why she’s not in the HOF but does that mean she should never show up on any WWE DVD again? Alundra Blaze is on the cover of the DVD and she threw the WWE women’s title In the garbage on Nitro and she was forgiven right? I know doing porn is a worse crime but come on. It would be nice if WWE would forgive Chyna too.

Anan Khalique
WDN Reader
Anan Khalique

Especially if they’ll forgive Hogan for his verbal actions that got him as erased as possible from WWE but now forgiven enough that he may return.

And to think Mr Vendetta made me out to be the trouble maker on the last article. Just look at the crap he’s causing in this thread. His comments are in equal measures irritating, yet boring. That’s quite an achievement.

He also hasn’t addressed the fact that Chyna is given credit in the synopsis (where she is described as a “trailblazer”, no less) and there is a strong chance of her being on the back cover.

Yeah make me out to be the bad guy now Rabid Prick. The difference between me and you is I don’t go out of my way like you do to be a prick. I voice my opinion and if someone don’t agree with me that’s fine then we can argue. You on the other hand go out of your way on almost a daily basis to be a troll. And I’m sure I’m not the only one who thinks that of you.

Shoe Face has a point actually. WWE are a PG product. There’s no way WWE can promote Chyna after all the damage she did to herself and her life the last few years (porn, drugs, overdosing). It’s ok to add a few of her matches but having her face on covers it’s something entirely different.

Stephanie and the Bella Twins are waste of space on the cover. The women’s revolution started in spite of Total Divas. Sherri Martel, Chyna and even Sable had more impact in WWE then Steph and the Bellas.

Steph just loves to attach her name to everything about making HERstory.

I’ll definitely be buying a copy of this upcoming 3-disc DVD set.

But, it’s such a travesty that The Fabulous Moolah, Sensational Sherri,
Chyna and Ivory aren’t on the cover.

There are way too many current WWE female superstars on that cover.

Stephanie McMahon certainly shouldn’t have been included on the cover.

There are numerous others that are on the cover that shouldn’t have been included on the cover either.
