EVOLVE booker Gabe Sapolsky took part in an interesting AMA on Reddit where he spoke about a wide range of topics.
During the AMA, he was asked about Kenny Omega’s comments regarding WWE Network airing the upcoming EVOLVE 10th Anniversary show on July 13th. This is the same night as AEW Fight for the Fallen. Both events will stream live at the same time.
Omega was upset with WWE airing this EVOLVE show opposite of AEW because AEW’s show will have all of the proceeds be sent to a charity for victims of gun violence. Omega later deleted the tweet.
“I thought it was a little disparaging to all the work and sacrifice we have done to get this opportunity. That part was disappointing. We had the date booked before their date was announced. The very first conversation I had with Triple H in 2016 there was talk of doing a special. We are in Philadelphia the night before WWE has a PPV there. We are in a great building at the 2300 Arena that is tailored made to go right on the WWE Network.
Everything just came together to do it on this date. It’s been a long process. I saw Kenny deleted it and then tweeted something else, so it is all good by me. I haven’t talked to Kenny in a long time, but I always felt we had a positive relationship. He was one of the guys I really wanted to push in 2008 and into 2009. I’m glad all his hard work has paid off.”
