August 16th: We are excited to release several new EVOLVE Blu-rays this weekend including EVOLVE 56, EVOLVE 57, EVOLVE 58 and EVOLVE 59. It was one year ago that we took Blu-ray production in house. In that time, we are proud to have released 24 EVOLVE Blu-rays and around 50 Blu-rays total when you add in SHINE, WWN Supershow, FIP and ACW. This only happened because of your support! We took your support and put it back into the company to make it better for you. Now we have regular Blu-ray releases. Thank you for making this possible! The new titles will be available at www.DGUSA.tv next week, but will be available in both Joppa and Brooklyn this weekend.
August 16th: There are still a few spots left in this Friday’s WWN Seminar/Tryout in Joppa, MD. This is open to male and female wrestlers/referees. Spots are also filling up fast for the first ever WWN Creative Seminar on September 10th in Deer Park, NY. Go to the DGUSA.tv Seminar section for all the info on both learning experiences.
August 16th: EVOLVE has only allowed Ethan Carter III to fight in non-sanctioned matches since his surprise debut at EVOLVE 57. EC3 returns this Saturday in Brooklyn, NY to team with his cohorts and EVOLVE Tag Team Champions Drew Galloway & DUSTIN against Tracy Williams, Fred Yehi & TJ Perkins with Stokely Hathaway. EVOLVE has decided to turn up the heat on the new Champions and let EC3 compete in a sanctioned match. Galloway & DUSTIN have been difficult behind-the-scenes in agreeing to Title Matches. This Saturday’s six man tag will now be for the EVOLVE Tag Team Titles! EC3 can also lose the titles for his teammates if he drops the fall. If the Catch Point team wins, they will be able to choose any two members to be EVOLVE Tag Team Champions. The stakes are now increased in this Tag Team War!
August 16th: This Friday will see an increase in attendance for EVOLVE in Joppa, MD. This means the pressure is intensified for this loaded lineup. The card features a double main event. Here’s a quickie preview:
WWN & EVOLVE Wrestling present
Friday, August 19th, 2016
The MCW Arena
1000 Joppa Farm Rd.
Main Event #1 – EVOLVE Title Match – No Holds Barred
Timothy Thatcher defends vs. Matt Riddle
Their previous two contests ended in controversial fashion. This one will see a decisive winner with the No Holds Barred stipulation. The last time Thatcher was in a NHB match, he broke Biff Busick’s thumb. Riddle, a former UFC star, says he will use his MMA skills to injure Thatcher. This one will be ugly and one man will walk out as EVOLVE Champion.
Main Event #2
Cody Rhodes vs. Zack Sabre Jr.
Cody has never wrestled outside the WWE system. That changes this Friday when he begins the next phase of his career. Cody said he wanted the best, and he’ll get the best in Zack Sabre Jr.
Who will win this dream match?
WWE Cruiserweight Classic Spotlight Match #1
Drew Gulak vs. Tony Nese
The WWE CWC has become the hottest thing going right now. EVOLVE is proud to bring the CWC style of action directly to you. This match pits two of the competitors who have made it to the second round of the CWC.
WWE Cruiserweight Classic Spotlight Match #2
Cedric Alexander vs. TJ Perkins with Stokely Hathaway
Alexander became the talk of the wrestling world after his performance against Ibushi on last week’s WWE CWC. TJ Perkins is about to compete in the next round on the WWE Network. This could be the show stealer of the entire weekend.
EVOLVE Tag Team Champion DUSTIN vs. Ethan Page
DUSTIN says the fans killed Chuck Taylor and joined Drew Galloway’s army. Page says he will take this fight to show Johnny Gargano that he deserves forgiveness. The hottest feud in wrestling comes to the Baltimore area.
Tag Team Attraction
Tracy Williams & Fred Yehi vs. Jigsaw & Peter Kaasa
This loaded card is rounded out by an explosive tag team match. The Catch Point duo of Williams & Yehi are looking to gain momentum into Saturday’s Tag Team War. The veteran Jigsaw and Kaasa, returning from his first tour of Dragon Gate in Japan, make an interesting team. This one promises to provide action to the card.
