NXT Tag Team Champion and Undisputed ERA member Roderick Strong look to be the suitable replacement to LAX to EVOLVE’s New York area shows on Dec. 15 and 16.

As previously reported, the IMPACT Tag Team Champions were pulled by the company from working the event, despite the growing mutual partnership between IMPACT and WWE. The latter company plays a significant role with the current direction in EVOLVE, as two out of their three top championship titles are held by NXT talent (Fabian Aichnr is the EVOLVE Champion while The Street Profits are the EVOLVE Tag Team Champions). Strong, a former FIP World Champion and EVOLVE alum, feel that he himself should become EVOLVE Champion.

So far, he has received a few takers, most notably EVOLVE standout Darby Allin, who wants to challenge Strong to a singles match on EVOLVE 118:

EVOLVE 117 will take place in Queens, NY at LaBoom on Dec. 15 while EVOLVE 118 will be in Deer Park, NY, featuring Fabian Aichner, The Street Profits, Kassius Ohno, and Austin Theory.
