This evening, EVOLVE and Gabe Sapolsky have confirmed several names heading to Wrestlexpo during WrestleMania weeks. Fans in Tampa will be able to see Jake Atlas, Santana Garrett, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott, Austin Theory and Timothy Thatcher in action across the week’s shows.
Several EVOLVE talents, including Josh Briggs, Stephen Wolf, Harlem Bravado, and Joe Gacy responded to the tweets in kind, setting up possible matchups for the events.
This is going to make you look really bad when I beat you 😂
I would say @ me next time, but you haven’t had enough matches to mention me. Continue to keep my name out of your mouth and I might not put you on the shelf for another 6 months…#LeaderOfTheWack https://t.co/pNeV9yytbO

PWInsider is also reporting a rumor that several Evolve events will land on the WWE Network, similar to the Evolve PPV that ended up there last year. With some NXT stars heading to the shows, it makes sense that WWE would want their talent exposed even if they can’t regularly appear in NXT’s weekly TV broadcast.
