WWE NXT Tag Team Champion Roderick Strong has set the stage to return to EVOLVE at their New York City events later this month in the wake of LAX being pulled from the shows by Impact Wrestling. He made the challenge via Twitter:
Thought of the day- NXT Superstars holding #EVOLVE titles? Well there are no bigger Superstars than the #UndisputedERA and I’ve won just about every @WWNLive title but the #EVOLVE title. So Maybe Dec. 15th I come to La Boom and #ShocktheSystem? #OurERA

The EVOLVE locker room was quick to respond, including EVOLVE Champion Fabian Aichner:

Before you go around throwing challenges…..TAKE a hard look at who's been fighting for that EVOLVE championship.
So before I learn my lesson let's see how bad things can get.
Come on down to EVOLVE and pay me a visit at EVOLVE 118 on Dec 16 in Deer Park, NY. https://t.co/rFJ1ppmHXz
