It now seems that NXT Tag Team Champion Roderick Strong of The Undisputed Era will serve as a replacement “name” talent on the card- joining the likes of his fellow NXT comrades in Kassius Ohno, Fabian Aichner, The Street Profits, and others.
Strong sent out a tweet, revealing he would be showing up at the December 15 show at La Boom and was quickly challenged by notable EVOLVE name Darby Allin for a bout at the December 16 show in Deer Park. Both of these matches will take place in New York- and will serve as the EVOLVE 117 and EVOLVE 118 shows.
Strong has competed in EVOLVE before, capturing numerous Championships before being signed to his WWE contract. As he explains in his tweet, the main Championship that alluded him was the EVOLVE Championship- and now that NXT talent are capturing Championships in Sapolsky’s promotion, it seems Strong thinks it is time to “shock the system.”
Thought of the day- NXT Superstars holding #EVOLVE titles? Well there are no bigger Superstars than the #UndisputedERA and I’ve won just about every @WWNLive title but the #EVOLVE title. So Maybe Dec. 15th I come to La Boom and #ShocktheSystem? #OurERA

Before you go around throwing challenges…..TAKE a hard look at who's been fighting for that EVOLVE championship.
So before I learn my lesson let's see how bad things can get.
Come on down to EVOLVE and pay me a visit at EVOLVE 118 on Dec 16 in Deer Park, NY. https://t.co/rFJ1ppmHXz
