EVOLVE Wrestling’s 10th Anniversary Celebration streams live on WWE Network tonight
History will be made tonight when EVOLVE Wrestling’s 10th Anniversary Celebration streams live on WWE Network at 8 ET/5 PT.
The event, which will emanate from South Philadelphia’s famous 2300 Arena (the former home of Extreme Championship Wrestling), will be the first non-WWE in-ring event to stream live on WWE Network since its launch in February 2014.
Long considered the pinnacle of independent wrestling, EVOLVE Wrestling has been the home of many current WWE and NXT Superstars over the years, with past alumni including the likes of Daniel Bryan, Ricochet, Drew McIntyre and Undisputed ERA. EVOLVE continues to regularly feature WWE and NXT Superstars on its events, and the 10th Anniversary Celebration — headlined by NXT Champion Adam Cole vs. 205 Live’s Akira Tozawa — is no different. Also slated for the card is a bout between NXT’s Matt Riddle and WWE Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak, a “Winner Take All” match between EVOLVE Champion Austin Theory and WWN Champion JD Drake, and much more.
A limited number of tickets for EVOLVE’s 10-year anniversary are still available at 2300arena.com. Fans in attendance will also be able to take part in pre-show meet-and-greets with former NXT Champions Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano, as well as Cole, Riddle, Tozawa and Gulak. Visit WWNLive.com for more information, including details about the meet-and-greets.
