WWE acquires EVOLVE Wrestling

Add another tape library to the collection.

WWE has purchased EVOLVE Wrestling, according to a PWInsider report.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly wrestling podcast, PTW!

From the PWI report:

[WWE] will have the complete rights to use the EVOLVE brand name and produce EVOLVE events going forward, whether as live events or WWE Network programming. There is no word whether we’ll ever see an EVOLVE event again, but certainly there will be EVOLVE/WWN content added to the WWE Network in some form down the line.

It’s currently unknown what WWE plans to do with the promotion, but WWE has reportedly been looking for more content for the WWE Network. EVOLVE’s 10th Anniversary Celebration was streamed on the WWE Network in July 2019, and it’s possible that it was a dry run of sorts.

EVOLVE was founded in 2010 by Gabe Sapolsky, and is based in Philadelphia. The company started a partnership with WWE in 2015, essentially acting as a feeder system for WWE.

Several top-name talent have competed in EVOLVE, including Drew McIntyre, Zack Sabre Jr., Ricochet, and others.
