EVOLVE News: Johnny Gargano’s EVOLVE 120 Opponent Revealed



Johnny Gargano
Who will Johnny Gargano face when he returns to EVOLVE?

As was noted, last week it was revealed that NXT Superstar Johnny Gargano will be making his return to EVOLVE Wrestling for their January 18th an 19th events, his first appearances for the promotion since signing with WWE back in 2016 (see the full announcement here).

While it had yet to be revealed who ‘Johnny Wrestling’ would match-up with for either date, today WWE issued the following to announce on the 19th at EVOLVE 120, Gargano will go one-on-one in a Non-Title Match against the new EVOLVE Champion Austin Theory. At this time, Johnny’s EVOLVE 119 opponent has yet to be announced:

Johnny Gargano will face new EVOLVE Champion Austin Theory in a non-title match at EVOLVE 120on Saturday, Jan. 19, in Woodside, N.Y., has learned.

The controversial NXT Superstar, who broke the news of his upcoming EVOLVE return over the weekend, will also be in action on Friday, Jan. 18, at EVOLVE 119 in Brooklyn, N.Y., though no opponent has yet been named.

Prior to joining NXT in 2016, Gargano was a mainstay in EVOLVE and its sister promotions under the World Wrestling Network umbrella. (You can read all about his emotional farewell to the independents here.) In announcing his one-weekend-only return on Twitter, Johnny Wrestling credited his tenure in EVOLVE as being instrumental in his development as a Superstar.

Gargano’s opponent for Jan. 19, Austin Theory, won the EVOLVE Title from NXT Superstar Fabian Aichner just last Saturday night, triumphing in a Triple Threat Match that also featured Roderick Strong.

Aichner is also scheduled to compete at EVOLVE 119 and 120, as are fellow NXT Superstars and reigning EVOLVE Tag Team Champions The Street Profits. Additionally, WWN Champion JD Drake, Anthony Henry, Darby Allin, AR Fox with Ayla & The Skulk, Eddie Kingston, Josh Briggs, Joe Gacy, BSHP KNG, Curt Stallion and Priscilla Kelly are already confirmed for Brooklyn and Woodside.

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle (2/18/19)

Start your Monday off with comments on news regarding Chris Jericho/IMPACT, AEW Ticket Sales, Becky Lynch and more!



ALL IN Chris Jericho

Jason shuffles into Monday with the Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle! Today we take a look at news on Chris Jericho/IMPACT, AEW Ticket Sales, Becky Lynch, and more!

More On IMPACT Offer To Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho was recently a guest on Wrestling Observer Radio, and during the broadcast he discussed the offer that IMPACT wrestling made to him a few months ago: (credit to Fightful for the transcription below)

“In my mind, from a pure business standpoint, I’m worth as much as Brock Lesnar to WWE as far as what I bring to the table. That’s the watermark that I had. For me to go back to Vince, I want that kind of a deal. When I was starting to talk with Tony (Khan) and New Japan and Impact as well– Impact offered me a hell of a deal for a four match series. We’re talking mid-seven figures. They have some cash as well.”

AEW Double Or Nothing Ticket Sale Notes

Cody Rhodes took to Twitter a few days ago and provided some interesting stats on ticket sales for AEW Double Or Nothing:

Why The Women Didn’t Headline Elimination Chamber

Initially, it was thought that the historic Women’s Tag Team Championship match would headline the Elimination Chamber pay per view, however, according to Fightful, Vince McMahon made the change to swap the match out with the men’s Elimination Chamber match. McMahon felt the women’s match would get the reaction desired to close out the show.

Becky Lynch Re-Injures Knee At Live Event

While it appears to be only in storyline, Becky Lynch appeared to re-injure her knee after attempting to attach Charlotte Flair at a house show Saturday evening.

WWE Elimination Chamber Results: WWE Championship Match

Was Daniel Bryan able to walk out of WWE Elimination Chamber still BOTH the Planet’s and WWE Champion?



WWE Elimination Chamber WWE Championship Match

Six men fought it out in the main event of WWE Elimination Chamber for The New Daniel Bryan’s WWE Championship. Did the Planet’s Champion retain?

The six men involved were:

  • Kofi Kingston (with Big E and Xavier Woods, starting in the near right pod)
  • Jeff Hardy (starting in the far right pod)
  • Randy Orton (starting in the near left pod)
  • AJ Styles (starting in the near left pod)
  • Samoa Joe (starting in the ring)
  • WWE Champion Daniel Bryan (with Eric Rowan, starting in the ring)

Kofi Kingston was THE fan’s favorite headed into this match. But he started in a pod, as the first two men in the match were Samoa Joe and WWE Champion Daniel Bryan (the Ring Of Honor fan in me is happy).

Order of events:

  • Daniel Bryan and Samoa Joe started the match at 0:00
  • Kofi Kingston entered the Chamber at 5:16
  • AJ Styles entered the Chamber at 10:27
  • AJ Styles eliminated Samoe Joe at 14:34
  • Jeff Hardy entered the Chamber at 15:14
  • Daniel Bryan eliminated Jeff Hardy at 17:58
  • Randy Orton entered the Chamber at 19:57
  • Randy Orton eliminated AJ Styles at 22:21
  • Kofi Kingston eliminated Randy Orton at 24:01
  • The final two men in the match were WWE Champion Daniel Bryan and Kofi Kingston
  • Daniel Bryan pinned Kofi Kingston at 36:35 to retain the WWE Championship

Daniel Bryan last eliminated Kofi Kingston to win the Elimination Chamber match and retain the WWE Championship
