WWNLive Alerts - January 9th, 2014 Edition

We regret to inform you that Roderick Strong will be unable to compete at the EVOLVE cards this weekend. We have the entire story and new matches in this WWNLive Alerts. Let's get to it....

January 9th: Roderick Strong suffered a graphic neck injury last weekend. We had constant communication with Strong since the injury and monitored his progress. We were all the under the impression he would be able to perform this weekend at EVOLVE. However, today he felt discomfort in his neck when he worked out. After a conference call today, it was decided that for Roderick's future it was best he rest as a precaution. Roderick will still be at Friday's EVOLVE 25 card to sign autographs and meet you. We will welcome him in the DGUSA/EVOLVE ring when he is ready.

January 9th: As a substitution for the EVOLVE 27 main event, Johnny Gargano will now defend the Open The Freedom Gate Title this Sunday in Jacksonville. There will be a "Chance Of A Lifetime" FRAY! on Friday at EVOLVE 25. The winner will receive the title match at EVOLVE 27. The participants in FRAY! tomorrow will be Jon Davis, Chuck Taylor, Uhaa Nation, Caleb Konley and Lince Dorado. Who will make the most of this opportunity?

January 9th: On the same note, we will make changes to the EVOLVE 27 undercard depending on who wins FRAY! at EVOLVE 25.

January 9th: It will now be Rich Swann and a mystery partner against The Young Bucks this Saturday in Orlando.

January 9th: Tickets are still available for all three events in the www.DGUSA.tv Store. We will refund the shipping and hold them at the door for you.

January 9th: You can pre-order all three live iPPVs at www.WWNLive.com in HD widescreen. Remember, if you order before the day of the show you save $5.

January 9th: After much debate, we have decided to run this new video from Davey Richards:
