WWE’s new working agreement with Evolve Wrestling is very much underway with the company heavily featuring the promotion across their platforms. Last week, dot com ran an article looking at five EVOLVE wrestlers and questioned if they were the next NXT breakout star. Many of the current WWE developmental talents weren’t thrilled with the coverage, with Bull Dempsey letting his feelings be known on Twitter:
“.@WWENXT @BookItGabe NAH, @riddickMoss @HugoKnoxWWE @WWEGable @BillieKayWWE @NiaJaxWWE @AlexaBliss_WWE & those who grind in the PC are NeXT,” Dempsey tweeted. Later adding, “.@RyanEWhittier not forgetting anyone. I only have 140 characters.”
It’s a situation where there are talents that have been in WWE’s pipeline for years and now have to compete with talent that haven’t been training at the WWE Performance Center. Competition usually brings out the best, so we’ll see how it goes.
Maybe an NXT vs. EVOLVE invasion angle? Fans usually love those.
