NXT's Velveteen Dream to wrestle at two EVOLVE shows


NXT's Velveteen Dream will be wrestling outside of a WWE ring at a couple of shows in September.

EVOLVE Wrestling, one of the promotions that WWE has a close working relationship with, announced today that Dream will be in action at EVOLVE 112 at the MCW Arena in Joppa, Maryland on September 7 and EVOLVE 113 at La Boom in Queens, New York on September 8. WWE revealed that Dream will be facing Austin Theory in Joppa and taking on Darby Allin in Queens.

Adam Cole also wrestled for EVOLVE in June, defeating WALTER in an NXT North American Championship match. Cole vs. WALTER didn't air live on the iPPV broadcast but was taped for potential future use.

The show in Joppa will be a homecoming for Dream, who started his career in Maryland Championship Wrestling.

Dream defeated EC3 at TakeOver: Brooklyn IV earlier this month. He then faced Johnny Gargano at the most recent set of NXT television tapings, with that match set to air next Wednesday.
