EVOLVE 135 Results: Walter, Kassius Ohno and Austin Theory In Action

Evolve 135 took place this past Friday night in Brooklyn, New York. Outside of the usual Evolve action, several NXT regulars made their presence felt. Here’s what went down at the Saint Finbar Catholic Church Gym.

  • KC Navarro pinned Anthony Henry after Henry laid down in the ring instantly. Henry sucker-punched Navarro after the match and hit a Drill Bit and a diving double stomp.
  • Avery Taylor pinned Alex Gracia in a match also featuring Vanity, Natalia Markova, Shotzi Blackheart, and Brandon Lauren.

  • Arturo Ruas pinned John Silver with a spin kick. Anthony Gutierrez taunted Ruas after the match.
  • Curt Stallion pinned Daniel Garcia in an Evolution’s Edge Tournament elimination match also involving Anthony Gutierrez and Karam.

  • Liam Gray and EVOLVE Tag Team Champions AR Fox and Leon Ruff defended their gold against Eddie Kingston, Joe Gacy, and Donovan. AR Fox got the winning pin with a 450 splash on Eddie Kingston
  • Harlem Bravado defeated Adrian Alanis with a modified pedigree in a match where his career was on the line
