WALTER and Kassius Ohno to compete at EVOLVE 135 and 136 in New York

EVOLVE’s already stacked events on Sept. 20 and 21 in New York have gotten even bigger with the addition of WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER and NXT Superstar Kassius Ohno.

The two bruisers will be in action on both nights in The Big Apple. On Friday, Sept. 20 in Brooklyn, WALTER will collide with JD Drake in what is sure to be a hard-hitting affair. Ohno will be standing across the ring from a familiar face in Josh Briggs, who will be looking for payback on The Knockout Artist after Ohno resorted to dirty tactics to pick up the win in their thrilling battle at EVOLVE 128.

Then, on Saturday, Sept. 21 in Queens, WALTER and Ohno will battle each other in a special main event showdown.

Ohno and the WWE United Kingdom Champion will also be available for meet-and-greets with fans, alongside fellow NXT Superstars Tommaso Ciampa, Johnny Gargano, Candice LeRae, EVOLVE Champion Austin Theory, Babatunde and Arturo Ruas.

Ohno has also been added to EVOLVE 137 and 138 in Atlanta, Ga. and Concord, N.C. next month.
