Evolution (WW)

Sports Team

Evolution was a villainous professional wrestling stable in WWE which was a part of WWE's Raw brand between 2003 and 2005, 2007, and 2014.

At the height of its original existence, the group consisted of Triple H, Ric Flair, Batista, and Randy Orton. Evolution slowly began dissolving in 2004 and lost their respective titles (Intercontinental Championship, World Heavyweight Championship, and World Tag Team Championship) against Booker T/Rob Van Dam then Chris Benoit and Edge. Evolution turned on Orton the night following SummerSlam, when he won the World Heavyweight Championship and kicked him out of the group. After winning the Royal Rumble in 2005 and teasing that he would chase the WWE Championship, Batista turned on Triple H and decided to pursue the World Heavyweight Championship himself. Although Batista's departure was largely the end for the group, the final break up came when Triple H turned on and attacked Flair.

Evolution later reformed on April 14, 2014 after Batista joined forces with Triple H and Orton. Flair did not participate in the reunion, as he had retired from full participation in wrestling in 2012. In October 2018, the original four members of the group reunited to celebrate the 1000th episode of SmackDown Live.
