Adam Cole has an opponent for his NXT North American Championship defense at EVOLVE 107.
After announcing last week that Cole would be appearing at their June 24th show in Melrose, Massachusetts, EVOLVE revealed today that WALTER will be challenging for his title. This will be the first time the North American Championship has been defended outside of WWE and the first time Cole and WALTER have faced each other.
“This is a landmark announcement for EVOLVE,” Gabe Sapolsky wrote. “WWE has been growing this relationship with EVOLVE for a few years. We are ecstatic that the next step is this historic match on June 24th. This is all about giving the fans in the Boston area something special. Our deepest thanks to Mr. Levesque for making this happen.”
Whether Cole vs. WALTER will be airing on the iPPV broadcast for EVOLVE 107 or not is to be determined. Matt Riddle vs. DJZ, Chris Dickinson vs. Tracy Williams, and Darby Allin vs. Jarek 1:20 are set for the show, with Austin Theory, Jaka, AR Fox, Timothy Thatcher, Anthony Henry, Josh Briggs, and Bad Bones also advertised.
