For those who have asked about rumors regarding WWE and their developmental system working with WWN, the parent company of EVOLVE, Full Impact Pro and the now-defunct Dragon Gate USA, has learned from WWE sources that there has been communication between the two sides about working together and that communication was initiated by WWE about a week ago or so ago. 

 That's about when Ring of Honor landed on national cable TV with their Destination America timeslot, so whether that was a factor I can't say 100%, but it looks like it could be.  EVOLVE released a video thanking TNA for working with them around the same time.

In regard to stories making the rounds (some attributed to me) that WWE is buying WWN or that it will be a new "OVW" style promotion assisting developmental, there's nothing to those stories at this time - we are told that whatever this deal is, and it's not a done deal by any means, it's all still being worked out and that no "official deal" has been set in stone. 

PWInsider reached out to WWN's Sal Hamaoui and Gabe Sapolsky but they did not return requests for comment. WWE has not responded to official requests for comment as of this writing, either.

Speaking of EVOLVE, they announced that Zack Sabre Jr. would be working their shows in Florida this July and also announced a $10 DVD sale on EVOLVE events.  For more information on each of those, visit

EVOLVE also released the following video:
