Here are the first set of EVOLVE Rankings as they stand now.
Open The Freedom Gate Champion
He stands on top of the WWNLive Family after the champion vs. champion match at EVOLVE 33
EVOLVE Champion Drew Galloway
The new champion won the title in a shocker during his first night in EVOLVE
1) Rich Swann
Easily secures top spot with wins over Chris Hero and Johnny Gargano, set for title shot
2) Timothy Thatcher
2-1 Record and Style Battle Tournament win put him at #2
3) Biff Busick
Style Battle runner up checks in right behind Thatcher with 2-1 Record
4) Matt Sydal
1-1 Record with two impressive, tough matches puts Sydal at #4
5) Chris Hero
Despite a losing 1-2 Record, Hero was in three grueling, competitive matches to earn this spot over remaining competitors
6) Anthony Nese
A quick, decisive win at EVOLVE 33 puts Nese ahead of the rest of the field
7) Caleb Konley
Normally a victory over Johnny Gargano and 1-1 Record would have put Konley at #5, but Nese’s distraction at ringside in Gargano match drops Konley in ratings.
8) James Raideen
Powerful newcomer gets #8 spot over Gulak since he won in head-to-head competition
9) Drew Gulak
Good showing in Style Battle tournament including win over eventual winner, but 1-2 Record lands him at #9
10) Johnny Gargano
Gargano has been on a slide into madness since losing the Freedom Gate Title, but did he show some redemption at the end of EVOLVE 33?
