Today it was confirmed by WWE that EVOLVE Wrestling’s 10th-anniversary show will be streamed on the WWE Network. The show is taking place on July 13th, the same day as All Elite Wrestling’s Fight for the Fallen event.

Many people on social media appear to be excited that a non-WWE show will be streamed on the WWE Network for the first time in just over two weeks.
However, one of AEW’s Executive Vice Presidents is far from happy with WWE’s decision to stream the show on the same day as AEW’s Fight for the Fallen event.
If lining your pockets with blood money is okay, then what’s wrong with trying to undermine a charity show for victims of gun violence?omit_script=1 I hear that healthy competition is supposed to be a good thing and yet I can’t help but feel like I’m gonna be sick.

Speaking of WWE’s decision to broadcast the show, Omega said that the company were “trying to undermine a charity show for victims of gun violence”.
For those who aren’t aware, AEW higher-ups have confirmed that a percentage of the profits made from the event will be donated to victims of gun violence.
Omega would go on to say that rather than “healthy competition”, WWE’s decision made him feel sick.
Do you think it was wrong for WWE to decide to stream the EVOLVE show on the same day that AEW is running an event to raise money for victims of gun violence? Let us know in the comments.
