This is the most important weekend in EVOLVE history. Let’s get to it….
Why Is It So Important? EVOLVE was trending on Twitter after the announcement that the EVOLVE 10th Anniversary Celebration on July 13th in Philadelphia would air live on WWE Network. This is historic. It is the first non-WWE branded event to air live on WWE Network! This means that the EVOLVE talent roster will get the opportunity to change the trajectory of their careers. EVOLVE 129 this Saturday in Queens, NY and EVOLVE 130 this Sunday in Brooklyn, NY will shape the July 13th card. It is all on the line for the EVOLVE Roster when you consider these questions….
Who will be the champions on the WWE Network special?
Who will be in the top matches?
Who will be left off the card?
This weekend will be intense as everyone tries to position themselves for the best possible match on the WWE Network! Be there in person by getting tickets at Etix.com or watch LIVE on Club WWN!
Tyler Breeze Ready To EVOLVE: WWE.com had this interview with Tyler Breeze yesterday. Breeze is set for the biggest matches he’s ever had on the independent wrestling scene this weekend when he faces AR Fox this Saturday and Anthony Greene this Sunday. These are matches you’ll only see in EVOLVE! Breeze will also be available for rare Meet & Greets. We can’t wait to have Tyler Breeze at EVOLVE!
SHINE On Saturday In NYC: SHINE 59 will take place this Saturday afternoon at La Boom in Queens, NY before EVOLVE 129. The loaded card has an epic main event as Allysin Kay defends the SHINE Championship vs. Mercedes Martinez. Go to the WWNLive.com Events section for the full lineup and ticket info.
ATTN: WRESTLERS, REFEREES & MANAGERS: We will have full details of the WWN Recruitment Camp on August 16th-19th in Port Richey, FL on Tuesday. It will feature William Regal, WWE Performance Center Strength & Conditioning Coach Sean Hayes and several WWE PC Coaches and talents. There are still a few spots left in this Sunday’s WWN Seminar/Tryout in Brooklyn. This will be the only WWN Seminar/Tryout in the Northeast of the summer. It will be the only one to feature Roderick Strong as a special guest. There will be around 5 talents and referees from past WWN Seminar/Tryouts on the WWE Network special. This is opportunity!
