Johnny Gargano announced yesterday via Twitter that he would be returning for two events at EVOLVE, the Gabe Sapolsky run promotion out of Philadelphia that has a working relationship with NXT superstars and a large alumni in the WWE. (NXT superstars Fabian Aichner, Angelo Dawkinks, and Montez Ford all hold EVOLVE gold.) The Velveteen Dream even appeared for EVOLVE when they toured his hometown of Joppa, Maryland. Gargano not only announces his dates, but credits EVOLVE for being the wrestler that he is today. See his statement below.
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.
