Rumored Evolution Main Event, SummerSlam Coverage, Matt Riddle Joins WWE
– WWE has already started to build their Evolution card by announcing WWE Hall of Fame Trish Stratus vs. Alexa Bliss. According to the Wrestling Observer Radio, Ronda Rousey vs. Nikki Bella is being talked about as the main event.
The company sees both superstars as the biggest mainstream attractions and WWE wants Evolution to get lots of attention. Rousey is easily the biggest female star in WWE; making her name known during her UFC run. Nikki can be spotted on E!’s Total Divas and Total Bellas.
Evolution is October 28 from Long Island’s Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
– The trend of new talent appearing in the crowd at Takeover continued last night. At one point, the camera zoomed in on former UFC fighter and EVOLVE Champion Matt Riddle. The announce team confirmed that he is part of NXT and WWE later sent out the following piece of news.
As NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV erupted inside Barclays Center tonight, the NXT Universe got a chance to see the newest addition to the black-and-yellow brand.
Matt Riddle, or as he is often referred to by fans, “The King of Bros,” has been announced as the newest Superstar to wave the NXT flag. Fittingly, the news was revealed as he was ringside for tonight’s huge WWE Network special event in Brooklyn.
The former wrestling champion and UFC fighter made a name for himself in the indie circuit, capturing titles such as the EVOLVE Championship and the PROGRESS Atlas Championship.
The announcement of Riddle’s signing adds another layer of excitement and competition to the black-and-yellow brand.
