For a few months now, there’s been a lot of talk about whether or not WWE has some kind of relationship, official/formal or otherwise, with WWN, the parent company of a few indie promotions, most notable Evolve and Shine.
It heated up with WWN’s Sal Hamaoui and Gabe Sapolsky being WWE guests during SummerSlam weekend and Matt Riddle saying on The Roman Show that WWE pitched him to Evolve. Other than being complimentary of each other, neither side said much…until today.
Of course, this week, Sami Zayn making a non-televised appearance at this coming weekend’s Evolve internet PPV shows sparked even more talk.
The latest WWN email alert has a statement on the matter:
You have supported us and you deserve an answers. You want to know what’s going on with WWE and The WWN Family. This is the absolute truth. There are no answers. Yes, there is obviously a growing relationship. What direction it will take is unknown. There are rumors and speculation, but this relationship changes and develops almost weekly. This is a road that has never been traveled before. There is no precedent. We don’t know what to expect nor what is possible. All this means is that anything can happen. There are infinite possibilities. The only sure thing is that this will be a wild, unpredictable and thrilling ride. We will all find out where this road goes together. There is no telling what will happen next.
There’s been a lot of speculation about where this will go, and that will most likely continue for a while until more pieces fall into place.
