Thank you for opening up and reading the DGUSA/EVOLVE Alerts. We will soon start calling this the WWNLive Alerts since we cover the entire WWNLive family including Dragon Gate USA, EVOLVE, SHINE and all our great iPPV partners. We are packed with info in this edition with the EVOLVE 17 live iPPV just a week and a half away, news on a major addition to WWNLive.com, a new Deal Of The Day and more. Lets get to it....
August 29th: We need to congratulate and say "thank you" to Open The Freedom Gate Champion Johnny Gargano. Today is the 280th day of his title reign, passing YAMATO's incredible run. Gargano successfully defended the belt against Jonathan Gresham at a Fight Club: PRO event last weekend in the United Kingdom (this will be a bonus match on a future DGUSA or EVOLVE DVD release). This is the first time the DGUSA Title was defended in the UK and on the other side of the Atlanta Ocean. Gargano has proven to be an invaluable ambassador for the DGUSA and EVOLVE brands with this incredible title reign. It will be Gargano vs. Jon Davis in a non-title match at EVOLVE 17 on September 8th as each tries to climb the EVOLVE Leader Board.
August 29th: The Road To WrestleCon for EVOLVE and Dragon Gate USA will officially begin at EVOLVE 17 on September 8th. "WrestleCon will be the biggest weekend in independent wrestling history," Gabe Sapolsky of DGUSA and EVOLVE said. "We need to pave a trail starting at EVOLVE on September 8th to captivate, amaze and dazzle you leading to WrestleCon. The pro wrestling scene is wide open now. The fans are begging to be excited, passionate and emotionally invested in something again. We have a chance to grab you and suck you in as we head to WrestleCon. That road will start at EVOLVE 17."
August 29th: REMINDER: Tickets for all eight WrestleCon events including EVOLVE, CZW, Kaiju Big Battel, SHIMMER, CHIKARA, Dragon Gate USA and $5 Wrestling go on sale in one week on September 5th. Go to www.WrestleCon.com for the schedule and pricing, including all the info on the VIP tickets to get admittance to all eight events with the best seats at a discount.
August 29th: EVOLVE 17 will take place on September 8th in Voorhees, NJ at the Flyers Skate Zone. This is a first class facility located just 10 minutes from Philadelphia and it is an easy drive from all over New Jersey, New York City and points south of Philly. Tickets are now on sale in the DGUSA.tv Store or by calling 267-519-9744. EVOLVE will start at 5pm as this is a double header with Combat Zone Wrestling so you can see two unique brands in one day (each show is a separate ticket). End the summer with a trip to see wrestling as a sport with EVOLVE and insanity with CZW.
August 29th: Jigsaw vs. Lince Dorado has been added to EVOLVE on September 8th. These two masked wrestlers are looking to secure a top spot in EVOLVE and each desperately need a win on the live iPPV.
August 29th: The voting continues to determine the EVOLVE 17 main event. Is it Ricochet vs. AR Fox or El Generico vs. Samuray Del Sol III?
