Technically it’s an Evolve show going up against AEW... *ducks*

You obviously know EVOLVE isn't doing this to celebrate their big 10th Anniversary event. Its obvious they are just doing this to mess with St. Cody and AEW!

Well too be fair - many folks complaints are specific to them choosing to work with Susan G. Komen

But they aren't the only major corporation to do that

No, St. Gabe would never do something like that!

Exactly, but folks only pick and choose whichever ones are of their preference.

We can go on forever about these major corporations being run by sleazebags who take advantage of these opportunities for personal gain or publicity, but we all know that already.

And as we all know, pro-wrestling, as major corporations, have always had a its sleazebags involved in it, but as always, we applaud the ones we like and take jabs and "boycott" the ones we don't like.

Okay so what are you saying, Edwin? Did you pick a side? 

I honestly don’t give a shit whether they did this against a charity event, but don’t act like they aren’t counter programming a competitior.

No preference. I hate pro-wrestling and every major corporation.

True, but lets not act like they are purposely counter programming a competitor because of its charitable approach.

Well, I find myself in a conundrum.  I was invited to go to the show and the thought of going to the 2300 Arena is too tempting to not check out (yes, I know it's completely different from the ECW days but point stands)  I'll feel bad missing out on Fight for the Fallen live but will be cool with checking the replay the next day.

I just thought you were in denial of this moment in wrestling programming history.

I mean I knew someone here was CM Punk. I just needed confirmation.

He was already banned.

I mean, streaming a 3rd rate indie's show on the Network is hardly undermining a charity show.

Fat Spanish Waiter loved Ryback. Unless that was a ruse.

Of course when WWE does it, its all about publicity. However, when someone else does it, its because they genuinely care and clearly not about publicity.

I think the main issue people have with WWE's charity work is the extent to which they pat themselves on the back for it. If they weren't constantly running 5-10 minute segments during RAW doing so, I think the reaction would be far different.

It appears Kenny's thought better of this and deleted it.

Have any other details about EVOLVE on the WWE Network been revealed? Will it just be this event or will other events also be streamed on there? Will they eventually add the EVOLVE library to the Network?

Taking the dive into Evolve's waters and going Saturday, since the weather's supposed to be pretty shitty out.  

I am looking forward to this.

It's interesting that that Tyler and Shawn Spears run a wrestling school together. I mean it's hardly the first time a WWE active roster member ran a school with a former member, but with everything going on it's still interesting.

Some thoughts from Saturday:

AR Fox is the awesome and needs to be in NXT sooner rather than later.  (Especially at 31 years old)  He and Tyler Breeze (replacing Kyle O'Reilly) tore the damned house down. 

Austin Theory absolutely has the look and I wouldn't be surprised if he bumps up.  

JD Drake just doesn't look like he should be a face.  Maybe it's just having seen Kevin Owens for years now, but they seem to be roughly in the same lane and it just feels like he should be getting booed.  

And Babatunde was wrestling a 99 cent store version of Aiden English.  He was fine.  Just a ton of charisma though. Once Vince realizes he employees him, he'll be on the main roster.  

Overall, this was a very fun show. And like I said, since it's 2 blocks from my apartment, I'll definitely be going back. 🙂

So is this show still on the Network or was it just live?

Yes, the show @Dolfan in NYC attended was not the 10th Anniversary special show that is scheduled to air on the Network.

7/13 from Philly

So far announced is:

Adam Cole vs Akira Tozawa for the NXT Championship

Matt Riddle vs Drew Gulak (non-title)

Josh Briggs vs Anthony Greene

And on Saturday it sure looked like they were setting up a unification (or winner-take-all) match for both the EVOLVE & WWN Championships, so Theory/Drake.

Yup, looks like Winner Take All for Theory/Drake at EVOLVE 131:
