WWN & EVOLVE Wrestling present
Saturday, February 25th, 2017

56-15 Northern Blvd
Woodside, NY, 11377
Get tickets here.
EVOLVE Championship Match
Timothy Thatcher w/ Stokely Hathaway/Fred Yehi winner at EVOLVE 78 defends vs. Zack Sabre Jr.
Zack Sabre Jr. has been on a long, bumpy road to get this EVOLVE Title shot. After Chris Hero’s endorsement at the last EVOLVE event, he is ready. The biggest variable is if he’ll face Thatcher or Yehi.
Bonus Match Event Grudge Match
Drew Galloway vs. Matt Riddle
It’s the grudge match months in the making! Galloway tried to get Riddle to join him in his quest to “save EVOLVE from itself.” Riddle kicked Galloway in the neck, leading to an injury. Now Galloway is focused on “saving EVOLVE” by eliminating Riddle. Make sure to watch this for Galloway’s words towards Riddle.
Ethan Page with The Gatekeepers vs. Darby Allin
This issue is as deep as it gets. Allin made is EVOLVE debut on Wrestlemania weekend last year in Dallas after impressing in a Seminar/Tryout. Page gave him a quick defeat. Allin showed perseverance and demanded another match. He gave Page more of a fight, but once again Page defeated him after throwing him into a support beam. Page then refused to grant Allin another match, saying that he was beneath him. Allin has interjected himself in Page’s business over and over. He finally pushed Page over the edge when he watched Page pass out at the hands of Zack Sabre Jr. last month in San Antonio. Now Page is out to exterminate Allin.
Special Challenge Match #1
EVOLVE Tag Team Champion Tracy Williams vs. Keith Lee
Lee wants singles competition. This Saturday he’ll get the leader of Catch Point. Williams has racked up huge singles victories against Chris Hero and Drew Gulak to end 2016. Now he needs to keep the momentum going in 2017. Who will win?
Special Challenge Match #2
ACH vs. Jason Kincaid
ACH has a title shot on the line. If he wins his matches at EVOLVE 78 and EVOLVE 79, he will challenge for the EVOLVE Title on Wrestlemania weekend. Kincaid has quietly established himself on the EVOLVE roster. Both these men have very unique styles. Both need the victory.
Special Attraction Match
Jeff Cobb vs. Jaka
Cobb and Jaka has both been forces in EVOLVE with impressive wins and physical styles. No hype needed here.
Four Way Freestyle
Thatcher/Yehi loser at EVOLVE 78 vs. Chris Dickinson vs. Austin Theory vs. Anthony Henry
Freestyle matches always deliver action. This one will have three hungry talents and a man who needs to get back on his feet after losing a title match the previous night. This will be explosive.
