Style Battle will be the ultimate test for competitors. It will provide a new opportunity for wrestlers. Each Style Battle will feature a variety of wrestling styles. We will find out who is truly the most skilled on every event.
Style Battle has been an annual tournament in EVOLVE since 2011 with various formats. Now it will occur almost monthy with an eight man, single elimination tournament. Style Battle will take place in "seasons." Each season will consist of nine events. There will be eight tournaments. The eight winners will then be in Style Battle Season Finale on the ninth event of the season. This will determine the Style Battle Champion of that season. In the event that all the winners aren't available, Style Battle will pick an "all star" substitute who impressed in a previous tournament.
"Tournaments can provide drama and excitment unlike anything else in wrestling," WWN VP Of Talent Relations & Creative Gabe Sapolsky said. "This will be a unique opportunity for upcoming wrestlers, today's stars and veterans looking to prove something to showcase their wrestling style."
"This adds more diversity to the WWN lineup on FloSlam," WWN President Sal Hamaoui said. "FloSlam will now have Style Battle, EVOLVE, FIP, SHINE, ACW and WWN Supershows. Each brand will bring something different to the Network. This gives the fans even more value for their money."
WWN will announce the participants and more details in the upcoming weeks.
