TNA talent Drew Galloway has posted an update on his physical condition.
The former TNA World Champion was forced to withdraw from his planned Bound For Glory match last month and subsequent Evolve events due to an injury. Galloway has posted an update on his Twitter, noting that he's progressing well, but that he needs to take the recommended time away from the ring.
Galloway also touts Fightful.com's own Matt Riddle (who will likely beat him), saying that he can't wait to return and compete against Riddle at Evolve.
In a twist to the story, Riddle told us yesterday that his new Evolve/Flo contract prohibits him from competing in TNA. No word on how that will affect Galloway moving forward.
In Galloway's absence at next weekend's Evolve 72 and 73 shows in New York, WWE have sent Tommy End to replace him. End's matches won't air on FloSlam. You can see an announcement from WWNLive below.
Tommy End signed with WWE and made his NXT debut last night. WWE/NXT has stepped up while EVOLVE is in need of a replacement. Tommy End will wrestle at EVOLVE 72 in Queens, NY and EVOLVE 73 in Joppa, MD. This is historic! These will be dark matches for the live crowd only. We'll have much more on this on Monday.
"We are happy to help out by sending Tommy End to EVOLVE on November 12th in Queens and 13th in Joppa," NXT General Manager William Regal said. "Most importantly, we feel this will create something special for the fans. I personally look forward to greeting the fans at EVOLVE in Maryland as well as seeing talent in the WWN Seminar/Tryout that day."
Fightful.com's own Matt Riddle will also be on the show, and we'll have full live coverage of the event here on Fightful.com
