EVOLVE 10th ANNIVERSARY EVENT IN PHILADELPHIA TO AIR LIVE ON THE WWE NETWORK

By Mike Johnson on 2019-06-26 15:16:00

WWE today announced that the EVOLVE 10th Anniversary event will broadcast live from Philadelphia's 2300 Arena live on the WWE Network the night before WWE Extreme Rules. The event will become the first independent wrestling event to air live on the Network.

EVOLVE was founded by Sal Hamaoui and WWE NXT Creative team member Gabe Sapolsky, holding its first event in January 2010 in Rahway, NJ.    WWE has been working on a handshake agreement with EVOLVE for several years, finally officially signing a contract to put their relationship in writing several months ago.

“EVOLVE was the birthplace for many current WWE and NXT Superstars, so it is only fitting that their 10th Anniversary Celebration will be showcased live on WWE Network,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events & Creative, said in an official press release supporting the event (see full press release below).

When it airs on the WWE Network, EVOLVE 10th anniversary will become the third pro wrestling show broadcast live from the 2300 Arena, following ECW's Barely Legal in April 1997 and Ring of Honor's Final Battle PPV in December 2015.

The planned matinee event for SHINE the afternoon of 7/13 was canceled due to this event becoming a live WWE Network broadcast, PWInsider.com is told.

The timing of the EVOLVE broadcast would put it head to head with AEW's Fight for the Fallen, which will air live on Bleacher Report Live domestically and FITE.TV on Saturday 7/13 as well.

The EVOLVE event will feature:

*WWE NXT Champion  Adam Cole vs. Akira Tozawa.

*WWE Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak vs. Matt Riddle.

*Also appearing are NXT stars Arturo Ruas and Babatunde, EVOLVE Champion Austin Theory, EVOLVE Tag Team Champions Joe Gacy and Eddie Kingston, WWN Champion JD Drake and more.
