Evan Bourne was one of WWE's most exciting stars. He was known for his spectacular "Air Bourne" finisher off the top rope. He rose to be WWE Tag Team Champions along with Kofi Kingston. Bourne's last match was in 2013 and he parted ways with WWE in 2014. He competed as Matt Sydal, but the Evan Bourne name and persona were retired.
Bourne now wants to make a comeback. EVOLVE's connection to NXT allows him to revive the "Evan Bourne" name and precision style that thrilled WWE audiences.
"There has never been a more ideal moment for Evan Bourne to return," Bourne said. "I'm thankful for this rebirth. I'm thrilled for this opportunity, and I will open everyone's eyes at EVOLVE. On November 9th and 10th, come see what I'm saying."
"We have so many unique opportunities with the EVOLVE connection to WWE," EVOVLE VP Of Talent Relations & Creative Gabe Sapolsky said. "We can put on matches with talent that no one else on the independent wrestling level can. One of these unique opportunities is being able to revive Evan Bourne. I know he is very hungry and looks at this as a comeback opportunity. I've known him since 2004 and I'm very excited to be working with him again."
