Champion vs. Champion Match Set For EVOLVE 86 – Final Match Card For EVOLVE 84

WWN Issued the following:

We have breaking news on a champion vs. champion match signed for EVOLVE, the complete lineup for the next EVOLVE event and more. Let’s get to it….
May 11th: Tickets are on sale for this Friday’s SHINE 42 event in Ybor City, FL. Go here for ticket and card info.
May 11th: There is a lot of controversy in the WWN offices now. EVOLVE Champion Zack Sabre Jr. and WWN Champion Matt Riddle both claim that their championship is more prestigious and that their title matches should main event the upcoming events. This is really debatable when you look at the upcoming title matches. It is Riddle vs. Kyle O’Reilly for the WWN Title and Sabre Jr. vs. Ethan Page for the EVOLVE Title at EVOLVE 84 in the Chicago area on May 20th. There are several possible title scenarios for EVOLVE 85 in the Detroit area on May 21st with Riddle vs. Jeff Cobb, O’Reilly vs. Tracy Williams, Sabre Jr. vs. Lio Rush and Page vs. Donovan Dijak. Which title should be given the main event spot? This leads us to….
May 11th: EVOLVE will return to Melrose, MA on June 24th for a double header with Beyond Wrestling (each event is a separate ticket). It is our goal to make this the summer destination event for all New England independent wrestling fans. EVOLVE has signed the biggest main event possible. EVOLVE 86 will have EVOLVE Champion Zack Sabre Jr. vs. WWN Champion Matt Riddle as the main event. As of now, this is scheduled to be non-title, but there is an infinite amount of pride and bragging rights on the line. Tickets are now on sale.
May 11th: Fred Yehi vs. Jason Kincaid has been added to EVOLVE 84 in Chicago to round out the card. We have the complete card below. We will have the final card for EVOLVE 85 in Detroit tomorrow.
May 11th: Thank you for reading today’s WWN Alerts. We’ll be back tomorrow with the latest leading into SHINE 42 tomorrow night, the final lineup for EVOLVE 85 and more!

Upcoming Lineups For EVOLVE Events

WWNLive issued the following:

This is an absolutely loaded and important WWN Alerts. Let’s get to it….

May 9th: We call it The WWN Family for a reason. It is because we are family from you to the in ring talent to everyone who makes the events happen behind the scenes. Wayne VanDyke, who is known as Richard Delicious in ACW, needs our help. He suffered three heart attacks two weekends ago. He has been in a coma since that time. In addition to wrestling for ACW, Wayne is an invaluable part of the WWN crew. He has spent countless hours on the road, working the thankless jobs for EVOLVE, SHINE and FIP as part of our crew. He is an important part in making all these events happen. WWN is going to give all ticket profits from the May 26th FIP and May 27th Style Battle events in Ybor City, FL to help Wayne’s medical expenses. Tickets are now on sale at TicketFly.com. They will also be available at the door for both events to avoid service charges. In full transparency, we do have expenses to cover specifically for these events with ring rental, building cost, staff, transportation and talent expense. Once those are covered, all ticket profits will go towards Wayne’s bills. We will also be taking donations at both events. We send our prayers and well wishes to Wayne. #FightWayneFight

We’ll have much more on this developing story in upcoming editions of the WWN Alerts.

April 6th: The focus now turns to the EVOLVE events in NYC on April 22nd & 23rd. Tickets for EVOLVE 82 in Queens and EVOLVE 83 in Brooklyn are now on sale. Go to the WWNLive.com Events section for more building and show info.

April 6th: Matt Riddle is your WWN Champion! Riddle will make his first defense on April 22nd in Queens, NY. He has requested old rival Timothy Thatcher with Stokely Hathaway as his challenger. This is Riddle’s chance to even the score.

April 6th: EVOLVE Tag Team Champions Tracy Williams & Fred Yehi will defend against their Catch Point teammates Chris Dickinson & Jaka at EVOLVE 82 back home at La Boom in Queens!

Matches Announced For EVOLVE 78

WWNLive issued the following:

We are back with lots of news. Let’s get to it….

February 16th: EVOLVE returns to action next weekend with EVOLVE 78 in Joppa, MD and EVOLVE 79 in Queens, NY. Good seats remain for each event at TicketFly.com. We have not raised ticket prices in 2017 to help absorb the fees! In addition, you can now print out tickets at home or show the barcode on your cellphone. There is no need to pay fees to have them mailed or wait at will call anymore! Go to the WWNLive.com Events section for all the event and building info.

February 16th: Ricochet helped build WWN as a former champion in DGUSA and building block of EVOLVE. He can be considered a WWN Icon. Ricochet’s star has grown and he is now one of the hottest properties worldwide, which limits his time in WWN. It is always a special occasion when he returns. Ricochet will be back for one-night-only on the biggest wrestling weekend of the year. It will be Ricochet vs. Keith Lee at EVOLVE 80 on March 30th in Orlando, FL. This event already features EVOLVE Tag Team Champions Tracy Williams & Fred Yehi defending against Michael Elgin & Donovan Dijak. Tickets now on sale.

February 16th: Anthony Henry has been added to next week’s EVOLVE events in Joppa and Queens based off his great showings in Style Battle and FIP.

February 16th: We are going to focus on the EVOLVE return to Joppa, MD one week from Friday. EVOLVE has, for lack of a better term, evolved in the past several months. We’ve said goodbye to many stars as they’ve made their way to WWE and NXT like Johnny Gargano, Drew Gulak, TJ Perkins, Tony Nese, Chris Hero and Cedric Alexander among others. Fans in Joppa, MD saw all these stars at EVOLVE events last year. You knew about these talents before the WWE Universe. Now EVOLVE brings the new generation to Joppa, MD. The departures have created new opportunities. This means fresh matches, hungry talent and a chance to be the next star. EVOLVE is taking advantage of this by having EVOLVE 78 on February 24th be all first-time-ever in EVOLVE bouts. See the new generation in the intimate confines of the MCW Arena just like you did with so many WWE Superstars last year. Support them on their journey. Just added to the card is:

Matt Riddle vs. Anthony Henry

WWNLive issued the following:

We want to thank everyone who joined us in person or on FloSlam for the successful premieres of Style Battle and the new FIP last weekend. We have info on the next Style Battle, more matches for EVOLVE in San Antonio and other news. Let’s get to it….

January 11th: SHINE returns to action this Friday in Ybor City, FL at The Orpheum. Tickets are now on sale. Watch at http://www.FloSlam.tv live! The main event has potential to be a true classic as Ivelisse defends the SHINE Title vs. LuFisto! Here is the lineup:

January 11th: Tickets have been moving quickly for EVOLVE in San Antonio on January 27th and January 28th after the announcement that it will be Chris Hero’s final weekend on the independents. In fact, it will be the last matches of Chris Hero. Get tickets now at TicketFly.com. It’s Hero vs. Zack Sabre Jr. on January 28th at EVOLVE 77. We’ll announce his EVOLVE 76 opponent this Monday.

January 11th: We have heard complaints about fees on TicketFly. We want to note that we did not raise EVOLVE ticket prices in 2017 to help absorb the cost of the fees. In addition, TicketFly offers many advantages, including picking your seat, printing your ticket at home or just showing the ticket barcode on your cell phone. No need for will call anymore or having to wait for tickets to be delivered. In addition, we were charging a shipping & handling fee with our old system, so now that is just absorbed in the TicketFly cost. The bottom line is you are paying less with TicketFly than if we had to raise our ticket prices. We also couldn’t handle the volume of sales in our office with so many more events in 2017. We feel this is the best option. It is our goal to make WWN better for you and TicketFly accomplishes that.

January 11th: Matt Riddle vs. DUSTIN in a No DQ Match has been signed for EVOLVE 77 in San Antonio. This is a Saturday afternoon event so you can make it a double header with NXT that night!
