The EVOLVE Championship and Tag Team titles are now both held by wrestlers from NXT.

Fabian Aichner defeated Shane Strickland at tonight's EVOLVE 114 event in Ybor City, Florida to win the EVOLVE Championship. Aichner made an appearance earlier in the night and challenged Strickland to the title match. Aichner won their match with a powerbomb.

As noted, The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford) defeated Chris Dickinson & Jaka tonight to win the EVOLVE Tag Team titles. Like with The Street Profits, EVOLVE announced that Aichner will be appearing at all of their upcoming shows in 2018. Those are: EVOLVE 115 in Livonia, Michigan on November 9, EVOLVE 116 in Oak Lawn, Illinois on November 10, EVOLVE 117 in Queens, New York on December 15, and EVOLVE 118 in Deer Park, New York on December 16.

As the relationship between EVOLVE and WWE looks to be growing, NXT's Jessie Elaban, Adrian Jaoude (with Cezar Bononi), and Dan Matha also wrestled at EVOLVE 114.
