EVOLVE Championship Match - If Anyone Interferes They Will Be Banned From EVOLVE

Austin Theory defends vs. Josh Briggs

 

This feud has escalated since Wrestlemania weekend. Briggs almost had the EVOLVE Title won from Theory last time at La Boom, but Kassius Ohno cost him the match. This time if anyone interferes they will be banned from EVOLVE. This will be Briggs' last shot at Theory. If Theory loses, he will be out of EVOLVE. This is what a big title match is all about. Who is your pick?

 

No Holds Barred Match

JD Drake vs. Anthony Henry

 

These former tag team partners and best friends have been in a feud that can best be described as demented. They are tied 1-1 after the brutal North Carolina Backyard Brawl last month at EVOLVE 138. We get a tie breaker this Saturday. It will be No Holds Barred. Will this get settled?

 

Relaxed Rules - If Any Unwanted Member Interfere They Will Be Suspended

Babatunde vs. Eddie Kingston

 

Kingston and his Unwanted crew have attacked Babatunde numerous times. They feel he doesn't deserve a spot at the WWE Performance Center and are looking to take him out. Kingston and Babatunde brawled to a no contest last month at EVOLVE 137 when Sean Maluta and Colby Corino of The Unwanted got involved. La Boom will get the rematch and it will be Relaxed Rules with suspensions for anyone who gets involved. Can Babatunde finally shut up Kingston?

 

First Time Ever Match

Matt Sydal, FKA Evan Bourne vs. EVOLVE Tag Team Champion Leon Ruff

 

Ruff grew up with Sydal as a primary wrestling influence. Sydal is looking to be rebourne in EVOLVE. This one pits one of the top new cruiserweights against a man who paved the way. Who will win?

 

Preview Of The Future Of NXT's Women's Division

Shotzi Blackheart vs. Reina Gonzalez

 

Blackheart helped build the women's division in EVOLVE. She just started at the WWE PC. Gonzalez wants to see what she's all about. This is a preview of the future of NXT's women's division. Can Shotzi show she belongs in NXT with a victory?

 

Tag Team Grudge Match

Arturo Ruas & Anthony Gutierrez vs. Joe Gacy & Sean Maluta

 

It was total chaos after EVOLVE 138 when The Unwanted challenged Ruas and Gutierrez to a fight. Now we'll get it this Saturday. What will happen when these four fighters collide?

 

Special Challenge Match

EVOLVE Tag Team Champion AR Fox with Ayla & The Skulk vs. Colby Corino

 

The Skulk and The Unwanted settled their feud last time at La Boom. However, Colby Corino wasn't involved. Now Corino wants the leader of The Skulk one-on-one. Will this be a career defining match for Corino?

 

Tag Team Special Challenge Match

Curt Stallion & Brandon Taggart vs. Harlem Bravado & Anthony Greene with Brandi Lauren

 

Greene distracted Stallion leading to a loss to NXT Superstar Cameron Grimes at EVOLVE 137. This was a huge opportunity for Stallion and Greene ruined it. Greene then kicked Stallion in the head at EVOLVE 138. Greene knocked Taggart out of the Evolution's Edge Tournament in shady fashion by using the ropes for leverage. Bravado & Greene have formed some kind of alliance, but now they'll be faced with two enemies in one match. Can Stallion & Taggart get revenge?

 

Plus more with Adrian Alanis, Liam Gray, Big Game Leroy and others!!!

 

There will be another big match signed to this event!

Non-Title 1st Time Ever Match

EVOLVE Champion Austin Theory vs. Curt Stallion

 

Theory crashed Stallion's victory celebration last time in Brooklyn. Stallion wants a chance to even the score. He'll get it this Sunday. Theory will fulfill this obligation even if he loses the EVOLVE Title on Saturday. Can Stallion be the one to shut up Theory?

 

Grudge Match

Arturo Ruas vs. Eddie Kingston

 

You have two legitimate tough guys from very different backgrounds in this fight. There is no respect between Ruas and Kingston. What will happen when they collide?

 

Must Be A Winner - EVOLVE 130 Rematch

Babatunde vs. JD Drake

 

These two were putting on a hard-hitting hoss fight classic at EVOLVE 130 in Brooklyn before The Unwanted. hit the ring to ruin it. Now Brooklyn will get the rematch and there will be a winner. Who is your pick?

 

Four Way Freestyle Hoss Fight

Josh Briggs vs. Anthony Henry vs. Joe Gacy vs. Brandon Taggart

 

You have four bruisers in this one. Briggs could enter the match as EVOLVE Champion. Either way, the winner of this one is sure to move into title contention. Anything can happen in this Four Way Freestyle. What is your prediction?

 

Six Man Tag Team Action

EVOLVE Tag Team Champion Leon Ruff, Adrian Alanis & Liam Gray vs. Harlem Bravado, Anthony Greene with Brandi Lauren & TBD from EVOLVE Seminar/Tryout

 

Alanis & Gray vs. Bravado & Greene tore the house down at EVOLVE 137 last month. It will be escalated into a six man tag team match this Sunday in the rematch. Can The Skulk continue their momentum?

 

Bonus Match

Reina Gonzalez vs. Alex Gracia

 

Gracia is rising on the independent wrestling scene. Gonzalez has potential to be a dominating force. A victory by Gracia over an NXT Superstar can change the course of her career. Can she do it this Sunday?

Blackheart's opponent will be determined after SHINE 62. Who will it be?
