- It's expected that former UFC fighter and current EVOLVE wrestler Matt Riddle will start working with WWE in February 2016. As noted, it was WWE that helped Riddle get the job with EVOLVE. That start date isn't a lock but that was the latest word going around.
We noted before that WWE essentially wanted to send Riddle to EVOLVE as a test to see how he could handle the pressures of everything. Many have been high on Riddle because of his look and athletic abilities, plus he's a big pro wrestling fan.
