I must be in a dream. WWE is the undisputed king of professional wrestling but there are other promotions out there with some outstanding talent. Just because a promotion is smaller doesn’t mean that they don’t have something worth seeing and WWE knows that some of these people are around. Now what’s going to happen when a person from these places start getting together?
As announced on WWE.com, Velveteen Dream will be working for EVOLVE for two shows next month. Dream will be wrestling on September 7 at EVOLVE 112 in Joppa, Maryland against Austin Theory and September 8 at EVOLVE 113 in Queens, New York against Darby Allin. The matches will only be for the live crowd and will not be broadcast on the pay per views. WWE has worked with EVOLVE before, with Adam Cole wrestling in June.
This is what’s waiting for EVOLVE.
Opinion: I see nothing wrong with any of this. WWE gets to showcase some of their talent in front of a new audience who might not be incredibly familiar with him and EVOLVE gets a new attraction to sell some tickets. This is a beneficial deal for both parties and a nice gesture by WWE. If they’re going to take some of EVOLVE’s talents, it’s nice of them to give them a little something in exchange.
Do you like WWE talents going elsewhere? Who else would you like to see do this? Let us know in the comments below.
