WWE’s Incoming Star To Compete For Evolve?

WWE’s Incoming Star To Compete For Evolve?

Matt Riddle may be heading to WWE, but first, the current Evolve Champion is stopping off at a quartet of Evolve shows, raising further speculation that an NXT deal is close to being confirmed. He will compete at Evolve 108 – 111 on August 4 – 5, and August 11 – 12. As of yet, his opponents have not been announced.

In recent weeks, Riddle has shunned indie shows that clash with SummerSlam weekend and beyond, but has accepted dates with WWE affiliated promotions such as Progress Wrestling and now Evolve. The company would, of course, be fine with him competing for such promotions should he have already agreed on a deal

Still the reigning Evolve Champion, one would expect Matt Riddle to drop the strap on one of the aforementioned dates. Should he do so, it’s a sure sign he’s headed for bigger things by putting his affairs in order.

It is widely believed that former Evolve Champion, Matt Riddle, will make his WWE debut at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV on August 18.
