WALTER Set to Wrestle Adam Cole at EVOLVE Event, NXT North American Title on the Line

Walter Adam Cole Evolve event title defense nxt north american championship

Adam Cole‘s opponent for an upcoming NXT North American Championship title defense set to take place at an EVOLVE event has been announced — indie wrestling standout WALTER .

EVOLVE made it official on Monday with the release saying, “History will be made when NXT North American Champion Adam Cole comes to EVOLVE on June 24th, 2018 in Melrose, MA to defend the NXT North American Title.”

As you may recall, WALTER denied WWE offered him a full-time contract back in March. Since then, he’s wrestled at WWE Axxess and will now be facing off against one of their title holders.

No word on whether anything has changed since he last denied the report. 

In the announcement, VP Of Talent Relations & Creative Gabe Sapolsky said: “This is a landmark announcement for EVOLVE. WWE has been growing this relationship with EVOLVE for a few years. We are ecstatic that the next step is this historic match on June 24th. This is all about giving the fans in the Boston area something special. Our deepest thanks to Mr. Levesque for making this happen.”

Tickets for the event are on sale now
