We are excited that the 3rd annual Style Battle tournament will take place throughout both shows in New York City. This year’s edition will put an emphasis on fresh faces or wrestlers looking to “break out.” We will have more details in the next WWNLive Alerts.

You might be asking why only Matt Jackson of The Young Bucks is signed for these events. Nick Jackson informed us that he is “wrestling at too many places now” and “wants to take the weekend off to spend with his family.” Therefore, the Open The United Gate Championships will not be defended at EVOLVE 23 or EVOLVE 24.

On that note, Matt Jackson will hold and oversee “The Young Bucks Tag Team Invitational” at EVOLVE 23 and EVOLVE 24. We will have more details soon.

WWNLive is excited to announce World Wrestling Academy as the official school headquarters! This is exciting news for upcoming wrestlers as The World Wrestling Academy has been named the official school and training headquarters of the WWNLive family including DGUSA and EVOLVE .We feel the academy will be a perfect fit in creating future stars for the entire WWNLive family.
