Trish Stratus returned on WWE Raw at the Chicago edition of the show following Super Show Down. It was evident to happen to hype up the Evolution PPV event on October 28th. WWE has promoted the event with the first announced match featuring the legend herself. It would be a dream lineup of Alexa Bliss and Trish Stratus.
Now it was the match that WWE Universe was looking forward to. It was intact on the match card until the Hall of Famer returned on Monday Night Raw. She brought a backup with her in the form of Lita. So the earlier mentioned matchup changed to a tag team contest. Alexa Bliss and Mickie James will now team up against Trish Stratus and Lita.
The question remains as to why WWE would make a change to one of the main events of Evolution PPV event. Seeing Trish Stratus in a singles contest was definitely going to be a good option for the fans. We should note that WWE also booked Lita in a separate matchup. Former rival Micke James was going to be her opponent.

But now they will participate in the newly announced tag team match at Evolution. Mike Johnson gave an update on the alteration during PW Elite Insider Radio suggesting that Trish Stratus and Lita are back on board for a longer stint. Evolution will not be a one-off return for them. Rather they will continue to be a part of WWE programming in months to come.
This might be why they came up with a name for their tag team i.e. ‘besties best for business. Meanwhile, this is what the source has to offer,
“I was told the decision was made about 2 weeks ago to turn that into a tag and part of it is they want Trish and Lita to be a tag team going forward. They have for them coming out of this for them to be appearing on major shows as a tag team.”
A major reason for letting Trish Stratus and Lita continue their stint is to introduce the tag team championships. For months now, we have been hearing that this new title will appear for the women’s division. These two veterans around the scene will give away the best opportunity for the creative team to finally make it happen.
There’s no strong update whether the women’s tag team title will become reality at Evolution. Also, Trish Stratus and Lita might make up the injury that Alexa Bliss be dealing with. She might not be able to pull off a singles contest due to the concussion. So Mickie James and Lita had to involve to make this one a bigger matchup. This could protect Alexa by wrestling the minimum time amount.
