Top WWE NXT star set to compete for EVOLVE

Yet another top WWE NXT star is headed EVOLVE. That star is former NXT Tag Team Champion Johnny Gargano.

The company is slated to hold events on January 18th and 19th in the New York area, which is where Gargano will be competing. As of this writing, his opponents at these events have yet to be revealed.

Prior to signing with the WWE and placed in their developmental system, he worked for EVOLVE from 2009 to 2016. During his run with the company, he held the EVOLVE Tag Team Championships along with current WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre.

In previous interviews, Gargano has given credit to Gabe Sapolsky in EVOLVE for the experience he acquired before making the jump to WWE.

Gargano wrote the following on his official Twitter account about making his return to EVOLVE:

“I’m a firm believer that you should NEVER forget where you’ve come from.. you stay loyal to those who have been loyal to you. I can safely say that I wouldn’t be the wrestler I am today without EVOLVE. January 18th & 19th.. NYC.. The kid comes back for one special weekend.”
