WWN Live News March 30, 2016
EVOLVE Mini-Doc Thatcher vs. Riddle
The adrenaline is flowing and the excitement is building as we are only two days away from the biggest wrestling weekend of the year! We have breaking news after the article on WWE.com on Monday mentioning EVOLVE, a mini-preview for this Saturday’s EVOLVE 59 and more. Let’s get to it….
March 30th: Please make sure you check the end of this email for a list of things you need to know if you are attending any of the WWNLive Experience events.

March 30th: When we say we are in uncharted waters with the WWE relationship, we mean it. WWN Officials were surprised to see this article on WWE.com about EVOLVE and other promotions hosting qualifying matches for the WWE Global Cruiserweight Series. We are all walking this new ground together so there is no telling what will happen next. There will be WWE/NXT officials at the WWN Seminar/Tryout this Thursday so we expect more talks to happen at that time. This could possibly lead to things happening as soon as the EVOLVE events this weekend in Dallas. At the very least, the competitiveness in the EVOLVE locker room has reached an unprecedented intensity. Everyone wants to be in this tournament, which will give new levels of exposure and prestige to the participants. You can expect a residual effect of the article at the EVOLVE and WWN Supershow cards this weekend as the talent roster tries to position themselves to be in the WWE Global Cruiserweight Series.
March 30th: Tickets are now on sale at www.DGUSA.tv for the EVOLVE return to Queens on May 7th. Confirmed for this event are Drew Galloway, Zack Sabre Jr. and Lio Rush. We can now confirm Drew Gulak, TJ Perkins and Tracy Williams for both May 6th in Queens and May 7th in Joppa, MD.
March 30th: We regret to inform you that Ivelisse is off this weekend’s WWN Supershow due to an ankle injury. We wish her a speedy recovery. SHINE Champion Taylor Made now has an open contract to defend the Title.
March 30th: We revealed all three EVOLVE and WWN Supershow lineups in Monday’s WWN Alerts. Today, we we focus on EVOLVE 59. This event will be centered around the USA vs. Europe Series. It will be the first EVOLVE card to host more than 1000 fans. Thank you for getting us to this point! Here’s a mini-preview:
