WWN Live News January 20, 2016
Last night at 7:36 we received the type of phone call that we hate getting. Let’s get to it….
January 20th: EVOLVE Champion Timothy Thatcher informed us yesterday evening that he has a staph infection on his leg. He is currently taking an antibiotic and should be completely healthy in a matter of days. However, it was mutually decided that Thatcher should not wrestle this weekend since there is a risk of infecting others. We apologize for this cancellation, but we are sure that you understand. Thatcher will still be at all three events this weekend. In fact, the weekend will kickoff with Thatcher addressing the fans. As soon as we received the news from Thatcher we picked up the phone and made some calls….
January 20th: Sami Callihan will now team with Zack Sabre Jr. in the EVOLVE Tag Team Title Tournament. It will be Callihan & Sabre Jr. vs. Chris Hero & Tommy End in the 1st round this Saturday in Ybor City, FL. We want to thank Sami Callihan for making himself available on the Friday event on short notice. Callihan and Sabre Jr. have a history in EVOLVE. They had a memorable match at EVOLVE 7. We will reveal now that it was Callihan who asked EVOLVE officials to book that match since he is a fan of Sabre Jr. and wanted to wrestle him in EVOLVE. Now they will team and try to make history by becoming the first EVOLVE Tag Team Champions!
January 20th: We are very excited to announce that Tommaso Ciampa has been added to this Saturday’s EVOLVE 54 and this Sunday’s EVOLVE 55 events in Orlando. Ciampa has made an impact in NXT and now he is finally coming to EVOLVE. It will be Ciampa vs. Ethan Page on Saturday. Ciampa will wrestle someone eliminated from the tag team tournaments on Sunday.
January 20th: You can still get tickets for EVOLVE this Friday in Ybor City, this Saturday night in Orlando and this Sunday afternoon in Orlando in the DGUSA.tv Store or by calling 267-638-6538. We will refund the shipping and hold the tickets at will call for you. Remember, tickets are $5 more expensive at the door on the day-of-the-show! There are also limited reserve seats left so we recommend getting those in advance. The Orlando venue is just down the street from the Royal Rumble so you can make it a double header with the WWE event.
