Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned the women of SmackDown Live were told this afternoon to be at Raw in Ohio later today for Stephanie McMahon‘s “historic” announcement.
In case you missed it, WWE tweeted on Friday saying Stephanie would be making the announcement during Raw — but no further details were given.
While sources have been tight-lipped on what the announcement will be, we’re told the women from SmackDown were given short notice today to be at Raw.
As we first reported, WWE execs have been seriously discussing the idea of an all women’s event for main roster talent in September or October. There’s also reportedly been talk of introducing women’s tag team championships. Many have speculated both might be announced tonight.
It’s unclear how this would affect the blue brand’s live event tonight in Illinois.
