A popular faction are set to get back together for the SmackDown 1000 episode

If WWE fans think of memorable factions since the turn of the millennium, they'd be hard-pressed to find any as ruthless as Evolution.

Led by Triple H and his merry men, Evolution dominated Monday Night Raw between 2003 and 2005, holding all the titles in the process.

It saw the career resurgence of Ric Flair, and the breakout of Randy Orton and Batista, two young prospects who worked with - and later against Triple H.

The stable gradually disintegrated though - Orton was excommunicated after winning the World Heavyweight Championship in 2004, Batista left after turning on The Game in 2005, and finally Triple H brutally assaulted Flair a few months later to put the team to rest.

Evolution were last seen together in 2014, where they got back together as a trio to try and bring down The Shield, but they were ultimately unsuccessful in their attempts.

Since then, Triple H has continued to work in a backstage capacity, Randy Orton became a 13-time World champion, and Batista has continued to star in blockbuster movies such as Guardians of the Galaxy.

But some very exciting news regarding the group has emerged from the WWE - and it has everything to do with SmackDown's upcoming 1000th episode.

It was confirmed by broadcaster Mike Rome that Evolution will return for 'one night only' on October 16 in Washington D.C.

And that would mean Batista's tweet towards the company saying he hadn't been invited to the celebration was well-and-truly noted by the powers-that-be.

On the whole, it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense, considering Evolution were never a SmackDown 'thing' - they were always exclusively on Raw during their prime.

But WWE are clearly trying to load up the card to boost ticket sales and viewership numbers - whether it works remains to be seen - but the return of Evolution is surely a positive step.
