Watch Lzzy Hale + Nita Strauss Open WWE’s First All-Female Pay-Per-View ‘Evolution’
The female superstars of WWE made history last night (Oct. 28) by competing in the company’s first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view, Evolution. Kicking off the show, two of rock’s most talented ladies, Nita Strauss and Halestorm's Lzzy Hale, performed an original song in front of an arena crowd.
Both Strauss and Hale have jammed at WWE events in the past, with Nita playing Shinsuke Nakamura to the ring at this year’s Wrestlemania and Lzzy rocking Ember Moon’s entrance music at NXT Takeover: New Orleans 2018. Evolution couldn’t have started off with a more perfect rock ’n’ roll duo, as Lzzy and Nita — performing on the entrance ramp and inside the ring — crushed a song written for the PPV.
“It’s such an amazing thing to see other women being strong,” Hale said in a backstage interview following the performance. “It’s not just about the lipstick you put on and that pretty face. It’s amazing to be a part of that movement. There were these little girls right next to us, over the railing, watching this and it’s such an important thing for women to see. Girls, whatever you want to be, don’t ever let anyone tell you you can’t be something. You always can be anything you want.”
Both Hale and Strauss took to Twitter to celebrate their night:
WWE legend and resident metalhead Triple H even showed the duo some love:
Congratulations to Lzzy Hale, Nita Strauss and the entire WWE women’s division for a wildly successful night at Evolution.
