Surprise Title Changes as NXT Stars hit EVOLVE 114

Last night, NXT stars won some EVOLVE gold. Whilst everyone was focussing on WWE Evolution, one of WWE’s partners, EVOLVE, were having their IPPV, EVOLVE 114.

To say that they utilised their WWE connections to help is an understatement, as not one but 2 NXT Talents showed up and won titles . Firstly tag team Street Profits beat the team of Chris Dickinson & Jaka, better known as Doom Patrol, who had previously been very dominant in the division. Then in the main event Fabian Aichner showed up to challenge the EVOLVE champion Shane Strickland, and Aichner picked up the win to become the top man in the promotion.

Neither of the new EVOLVE champions have been heavily featured on NXT  in the last couple of months so it will be interesting to see where they go from here. Its fair to say Twitter was very critical of the results.

Elsewhere on the card, NXT Talents Jessie Elaban, Cezar Bononi & Dan Matha made appeareances to varying results and EVOLVE stalwart James Drake became the new WWN Champion. What does this mean for Evolve going forward? We shall have to wait and see.
