May 17th: Here’s a quickie preview of this Saturday’s stacked card in Chicago….

EVOLVE 104 – May 19th – Summit, IL – 8:00pm CDT – Tickets & Info – Live iPPV

Main Event #1 – WWN Championshp Match

Austin Theory with Priscilla Kelly defends vs. DJZ

DJZ defeated Theory the night before Theory won the WWN Championship in a shocking upset over Keith Lee. Their interaction in the traditional six man tag team match at the WWN Supershow two days later proved that DJZ is the top contender. Theory is coming off the momentum of successfully defending the title at WWE Wrestlemania Axxess and Priscilla Kelly returns from suspension. Can DJZ defeat him again?

Main Event #2 – Non-Title
EVOLVE Champion Matt Riddle vs. Shane Strickland

Riddle enters his first weekend as EVOLVE Champion with a unique match. Strickland makes his return to EVOLVE after several years. He was an upcomer before in EVOLVE. Now he’s one of the most established stars on the independent wrestling scene. Will he make an impact against the EVOLVE Champion in his return?

EVOLVE Tag Team Championship Match – Anything Goes

Chris Dickinson & Jaka with Stokely Hathaway vs. The End

The last defense by Dickinson & Jaka made history as they successfully defended the EVOLVE Tag Team Titles in a WWE ring against NXT stars Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch (watch this for highlights). Their war against The End has raged on for months. The End earned this title shot by winning the Tag Team Scramble at EVOLVE 102. This will be the final match between these two teams. Who will win this war?

Heavyweight Challenge Match
Keith Lee vs. James Drake

This is a heavyweight hoss battle. Lee has been the dominant big man in EVOLVE for the past year. Drake had a breakout singles match against Matt Riddle in February, but he needs a win. Can he defeat the former WWN Champion?

Grudge Match
Tracy Williams vs. Dominic Garrini with Stokely Hathaway

The WWN Supershow during Wrestlemania weekend ended in a shocking turn of events when Stokely Hathaway fired Catch Point co-founder Tracy Williams from Catch Point. Hathaway manipulated the contract he signed with Williams, but now Tracy is looking for revenge. Stokely is sending his hired muscle in Garrini to try to make quick work of Williams in Chicago. What will happen?

Special Challenge Match
AR Fox with The Skulk vs. Zachary Wentz

Fox is a top player in EVOLVE. Wentz already impressed at the WWN Supershow last month. He is making his EVOLVE debut here after touring Dragon Gate in Japan. Can Wentz make his name in one night by defeating the 1st ever EVOLVE Champion in Fox?

Freelance Rivalry Comes To EVOLVE

Anthony Henry vs. Stevie Fierce

EVOLVE has a great partnership with Freelance Wrestling. Henry vs. Fierce has produced two classics in Freelance. Now the rubber match comes to EVOLVE this Saturday. Henry has a spot in EVOLVE. Fierce wants one. Who will gain the advantage in the series?

Freelance vs. WildKat
Matt Knicks, Chris Castro & Isaias Velazquez vs. J.Spade, Bu Ku Dao & Jonny Flex

The WildKat Sports & Entertainment team defeated the Freelance Wrestling team at Style Battle S1:Finale in New Orleans. Freelance is bringing their best to try to even the score when WildKat’s stars make their Chicago debuts. Who will impress?

Four Way Freestyle

Darby Allin vs. Trey Miguel vs. Myron Reed vs. Snoop Strikes

Allin is returning from injury. Miguel and Reed are making their EVOLVE debuts. Strikes is a standout in WWN Family promotion ACW. These four bring amazing athleticism into one match. Can Allin break his slump? Which one of the newcomers will stand out?

EVOLVE stars will be available for a meet & greet before and after the event!
