ACH, one of the top talents on the independent wrestling scene has been booked to appear on all EVOLVE shows through March. His first appearances will be at the promotion's events on WWE Royal Rumble weekend. The events take place Jan. 27 and 28 at Woodlawn Lake Park Gym in San Antonio, Texas.

The signing is a major one for the promotion. ACH has proven himself a top-tier talent working across the independent scene as well as spending time in Japanese promotions NOAH and NJPW. Many felt the 29-year-old was not given the opportunities he deserved, especially in Ring of Honor, where he was consistent in rising to the occasion every time he was given a major test.

In 2017, he has the opportunity to join the deep and talented EVOLVE roster and make a run toward the title while facing off with some of the top talent in the world. His first opponent will be top EVOLVE talent, Matt Riddle at EVOLVE 76.

ACH tweeted a short message on the next phase of his career.
