Bryan Danielson, who just returned to WWE on Sunday as Daniel Bryan, will make his final independent wrestling NYC area appearance at EVOLVE on September 11th in Rahway, NJ at the Rahway Rec Center, close to Manhattan. Go to www.EVOLVEwrestling.com or call 267-519-9744 for more info and tickets.

Here’s what Bryan Danielson had to write about EVOLVE in his July 19th blog: “EVOLVE (www.evolvewrestling.com) was initially conceptualized by myself and Gabe Sapolsky, the former booker for Ring of Honor. We felt that wrestling needed change, as most wrestling became stagnant and many fans were losing interest. Even though I signed with WWE, Gabe forged ahead with the new product, not quite what we envi sioned at first but still a great alternative to what’s happening in the mainstream. EVOLVE 1 had two excellent matches with TJP vs. Munenori Sawa and Davey Richards vs. Kota Ibushi and the EVOLVE 2 main event with Chris Hero vs. Ikuto Hidaka was awesome.”

Bryan Danielson, will also fulfill his commitments to Dragon Gate USA. He will wrestle on the events on Sept. 25th in Chicago and Sept. 26th in Milwaukee. Tickets for both events are now on sale in the www.DGUSA.tv Store or by calling 267-519-9744.

NYWCwrestling.com reported that due to a WWE commitment on August 28th he is being forced to cancel his appearance with the NYWC at “Draw the Line” in Deer Park. The NYWC is doing everything in it’s power to try and find a suitable replacement for Mr. Danielson.
