The top half of the card looks pretty damned good and Briggs/Greene should be pretty good as well. A lot of people here with a big opportunity to shine on a big stage.

People love to dump on EVOLVE, but that card has some good looking stuff, plus the novelty of being on The Network. Really looking forward to it. Hoping this opens the floodgates on non WWE content on The Network. Ideally it'd be the new streaming home for EVOLVE.

Will definitely watch that card. If Evolve was regular on the Network I'd try and keep up with it

Evolve 131 was probably my favorite Evolve/WWN show I've seen in quite some time and had some incredibly solid work to boot. Everything, top to bottom, delivered in one way or another and I would say it was a pretty blanket statement that those who had never had national exposure (or minimal exposure) truly stepped up their games. The best stuff to me was the Briggs/Greene opener, the Ruas/Henry match (never thought I'd like anything out of Ruas) and the best match/moment/overall package of the show, Austin Theory vs. JD Drake.

I usually watch WWN products on my computer, so I'm not sure if the production was better because I watched this on the Network on my TV or if the production was actually better overall.

If you missed the show, there's really no excuse not to watch the replay. Easy, fun watch.

Evolve 131 was nothing short of a success and dare I say one of their best shows ever. It felt special. I thought the Indie talent on the show really stepped up and showed out. I thought the NXT talent that showed up also showed out. Awesome. Wrestling is really fun right now.

The Eddie Kingston promo, as usual, was great. And he did it clean.

Curious to know if any of the non-NXT talent got the attention of WWE that night. I'd like to think yes, but for the most part, the most impressive guys in my opinion (Henry, Kingston, Drake) are probably too outside what WWE is willing to accept in terms of body type that it might not matter. Then again, they signed Steen and Generico, something I always assumed was never happening.

I would assume Theory and Briggs would likely be givens for contracts when and if they want them.

I hope to see some more Babatunde in the future. Seeing him in the GRR was cool because I had only heard of him and seen pictures, but never in action. Of course he didn't do a whole lot, but his match with Colby made me a fan. Just had a cool vibe to him and could be a definite star, in my eyes at least.

Some great local talent on the Chicago Evolve show. All five of these guys can go

It was a great moment.

I have a feeling Kushida might be beating Gulak tonight...

No title change, but a damn good match with a finish that leads me to think Kushida and Gulak are not done.

Saw the second half of 133 and all of 134 and Evolve really is heating up with several good storylines and good to great wrestling up and down the card. If you haven't been paying attention, might be time to dive back in.
