NXT’s Roderick Strong will be returning to EVOLVE for a weekend next month.
It was announced yesterday that Strong will be in action at EVOLVE 129 in Queens, New York on Saturday, June 29 and EVOLVE 130 in Brooklyn on Sunday, June 30. Opponents for Strong have yet to be revealed.
Strong will be a special guest at WWN’s seminar/tryout in Brooklyn on June 30.
Strong last wrestled for EVOLVE at two shows in December 2018. He took part in a triple threat match where Austin Theory defeated Fabian Aichner to win the EVOLVE Championship. At the second show, Strong defeated Darby Allin. Allin has since departed EVOLVE and is part of AEW.
EVOLVE also noted that NXT’s Adrian Jaoude and Babatunde Aiyegbusi are scheduled for all upcoming events and that more NXT talent announcements are coming soon.
Former NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa, who underwent neck surgery in March, will be doing meet and greets at EVOLVE 129, EVOLVE 130, EVOLVE 131 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on July 13, and EVOLVE 132 in Melrose, Massachusetts on July 14.
