    Perfect purchase for this Empty Arena Era.


    Was Gabe still in charge of Evolve?

    He was but it hasnt been good since Gargano, Page, Sabre and Hero left. It had moments but HHH really raided their talent and they couldnt keep up like ECW in 2000.

    It's pretty crazy they lasted a fukking decade. I was never able to get into the DEAD atmosphere almost every show had, but a fukk ton of great wrestlers worked there. For a long ass time it was the main place to watch Yehi the underrated gawd :mjcry:

    I remember exactly when it was first announced. This company was supposed to have Davey Richards as his ace :dead: You know that wasn't going to last.

    They tried some innovations, like a website with secret stuff and an emphasis in win-loss records and points. Gabe also was very active on Facebook making discussions about the shows and other wrestling stuff. That didn't last either.

    Checked most of their initial shows. They were aight. Bryan had a couple great bouts there. Besides that, nothing really memorable. Then I tried to check their most recent era, where they did shows in bars with a couple rows of fans. Not good at all.

    It was a matter of time.

    If they’re smart they’ll replace NXT UK with EVOLVE. That Young Bucks footage will get no play for the foreseeable future if ever.

    Actually the La Boom shows were pretty great with the crowd but i def see what you mean. Most of Yehi's accessible catalogue is in EVOLVE so at least youll have that for the network once they dub the themes

    I liked Evolve before 2018 when all the talent had been signed. Indie wrestling gotta be a whole different thing post pandemic. Hopefully another black owned promotion can rise from all this ash.

    ROH's library would be a good addition to the WWE Network.

    Plus tons of footage to make dope ass video packages for Bryan/Rollins/Cole/Joe...
