– We noted before that the EVOLVE promotion set attendance records with last weekend’s EVOLVE 49 and EVOLVE 50 events from New York City, featuring appearances by WWE NXT Superstar Sami Zayn. The iPPV buys were also up, even though Sami didn’t appear on the broadcast, and this was credited to the new partnership with WWE and the buzz around Sami.
Attendance and buys being up led to backstage morale being up, according to PWInsider. The new WWE – EVOLVE connection has morale really up with the roster buzzing about what this might mean for them and EVOLVE.
– Former TNA Knockout Rosie Lottalove worked tonight’s WWE NXT TV tapings against Emma, in a match for the November 18th episode. She lost more than 100 pounds over a year ago and has been competing in SHINE Wrestling under the name Andrea. She was also trained by The Dudley Boyz at their Team 3D Academy. She used her real name MaryKate at tonight’s NXT tapings. Below are photos from tonight.
