-"EVOLVE 9: Gargano vs. Taylor" will take place on July 26th at BB King Blues Club & Grill in Times Square, Manhattan, New York. Be there in person by getting tickets in the EVOLVEwrestling.com Shop, by calling 267-519-9744 or at Ticketmaster outlets. If you can’t be there in person you can still watch this card live as it happens at www.WWNLive.com on iPPV. You can pre-order the live iPPV now.

EVOLVE officials decided that Gargano and Taylor would be the main event and in the show title over Dave Finlay and Sami Callihan. The main reason is that Gargano is the Wins Leader and Taylor is only one win behind Gargano. Finlay vs. Callihan drew serious consideration out of respect for the veteran Finlay and the fact Callihan reached the finals of the Style Battle tournament on EVOLVE 8. However, in the end a battle for the Wins lead took precedence.

Several new matches have been signed for "EVOLVE 9: Gargano vs. Taylor" on July 26th. Here is the new lineup with the skinny on each match:
