The Rematch – Non-Title
EVOLVE Champion Timothy Thatcher vs. Drew Galloway
This epic rematch sees Galloway in the ring with the man who defeated him for his cherished EVOLVE Championship. This could be a title match depending on what happens at EVOLVE 51. Will Thatcher stake his place as the face of WWN by defeating Gargano and Galloway in the same weekend or will this all be too much for him?
Pro Wrestling Clinic
Johnny Gargano vs. Drew Gulak
These two had a classic at EVOLVE 35, which Gargano won. Now Gulak is looking to use his Catch Point skills to even the score. This promises to be pro wrestling at its best! Who will win?
Special Challenge Match #1
Caleb Konley with So Cal Val vs. TJ Perkins
Konley insists he is the #1 contender. So Cal Val considers TJP to be a thorn in the Premier Athlete Brand’s side. Perkins wants to climb the ratings. There is a lot at stake in this first-time-ever match!
Special Challenge Match #2
Tracy Williams vs. Matt Riddle
The challenge was made at the last EVOLVE card. Now the hard-hitting Williams will square off against former UFC standout Riddle. Both men match up equal physically. Each competitor has momentum. How will Riddle do against “Hot Sauce?”
Battle Of The Best Athletes
Anthony Nese with So Cal Val vs. Peter Kaasa
Kaasa blew away the NYC crowd at the last EVOLVE weekend with his athleticism. Nese has always proven to be the “Premier Athlete.” Who is the best athlete?
Ethan Page vs. Lio Rush
Page finds himself in the opening match as he tries to rebound after losing the feud against Gargano. Rush is being given the opportunity to make his name. Both desperately need a win here to solidify their spot. Who will prevail?

October 29th: Our biggest congratulations to Biff Busick for signing a WWE contract and reporting to NXT. Busick was an integral part in the relaunch of EVOLVE in August of 2014. His hard-hitting, technical style defined EVOLVE’s identity. His rivalry against Timothy Thatcher and Drew Gulak popularized the new EVOLVE style. Thank you for all your contributions, Biff. You know we’ll be watching you climb in the ranks in the WWE universe.
October 29th: We offer a very deep and heartfelt congratulations to Rich Swann for signing a WWE contract and reporting to NXT. Rich has been an important and groundbreaking part of WWN since 2009. He paved the way for American stars in Dragon Gate USA as part of Ronin. He was a crossover star in both Dragon Gate in Japan and DGUSA. He is a former FIP Champion and half of the last DGUSA Open The United Gate Champions. Swann got his first match by impressing in a DGUSA Seminar/Tryout. We watched him climb the ranks and grow in the business. WWN would not be what it is today without the contributions of Rich Swann. Thank you.
October 29th: We are proud of Johnny Gargano, who was in the show stealing match of last night’s episode of NXT on WWE Network. This has been a special WWN Alerts as we say goodbye to Rich Swann and Biff Busick, but welcome Lio Rush. Will Rush be the next to rise from a Seminar/Tryout to become a top player in WWN? Join us for the ride. Thank you for reading today’s WWN Alerts. Next week will be very interesting….
