WWE Set To Air Evolve 10th Anniversary Show Opposite AEW’s Fight For The Fallen

It’s become clearer to the WWE Universe over each passing week that WWE and AEW see each other as competition and it could reach a level of WCW vs WWE if the duo continues the current war. While there have been rumblings about the companies purposely taking digs at each other, there has been no real act of war that could be seen as the beginning of change.

There were instances like Cody Rhodes smashing up Triple H’s throne, while Sami Zayn went on to mention AEW on Raw, and Bray Wyatt has reportedly been taking subtle shots at Jon Moxley, but until now WWE hasn’t tried to sway the audience over to their product over AEW’s.

It was revealed by Triple H earlier today that WWE will air Evolve’s 10th Anniversary show on the WWE Network at the same time that AEW is set to air Fight For The Fallen on July 13th. WWE already announced that Adam Cole will be part of Evolve 131 since he will defend the NXT Championship against Akira Tozawa.

Matt Riddle will face Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak in a non-title match while NXT stars Arturo Ruas (formerly Adrian Jaoude) and Babatunde will also be part of the show.

“EVOLVE was the birthplace for many current WWE and NXT Superstars so it is only fitting that their 10th Anniversary Celebration will be showcased live on WWE Network,” Triple H told The Wrap.

AEW has Fyter Fest coming up this weekend followed by Fight For The Fallen on July 13th and then All Out on August 31st, which means that it’s going to be a busy few weeks for the brand and they are remaining focused on their upcoming shows rather than their competition.

It’s no secret that WWE has been struggling with ticket sales and Double or Nothing exceeded expectations, but AEW hasn’t had a show that has been seen as direct competition for WWE yet and this could be their first real test.

Kenny Omega has already commented on the news, but deleted the following Tweet:

He later followed it up with his reasons for removing the update.
