Evolution Wrestling’s appointment of Lewis Nicholls as their new general manager has initiated new opportunities for the promotion’s wrestlers and fans alike.
Nicholls, a TV and Radio broadcaster with a following of over 1,200 subscribers on YouTube, was announced as the new head of authority last week, and has vowed to keep the company as the head promotion in Gloucestershire.
The 26-year-old has looked towards the Evolution academy for next year’s plans and insists that developing home-grown talent is the way forward for the promotion of 15 years.
“I have watched various people at the training sessions, and Dale stands out to me as one to watch” Nicholls told Park Life Sport.
“He has a great confidence within the ring – I have been so impressed with his skill set and he is someone I would like to progress further”
The Cornwall-born broadcaster has declared his intentions to set the company apart from other wrestling promotions, by utilising the academy to a more prominent extent.
“I watched Joe Bourne for the first time last week and was impressed. He is the full package. Technically very good, and every move is done with conviction. He is going to be someone getting booked by many promotions”.
In addition to this, the increasing utilisation of women in wrestling has inspired Nicholls to implement more female wrestlers into Evolution’s growing division.
“I think that women’s wrestling is the most exciting stuff out there at the moment” he said.
“It’s important that we don’t follow everyone else by just having females wrestle for the sake of equality; instead, they wrestle because they are incredible performers.
“As general manager, I will be giving all talents creative freedom on their ‘personas’. This concept works, as seen in AEW, and I believe that both our male and female performers can benefit hugely from this.”
The new general manager of Evolution speaks vigorously of the company’s future, and he has already changed the landscape of the championship scene after revoking Iestyn Rees’s ‘no title match’ clause, announced via social media.

Nicholls has declared that his influence as general manager will be substantial, and he proclaims that Evolution Wrestling will be looking to make a big statement in 2020.
“I will bring various qualities to the promotion. I am very good at observing and will be looking for pure talent and that ‘special factor’ to find something completely different for the fans.
“I’m very confident and feel I will have a good relationship with the crowd – be it them liking me or hating me”.
The full-time broadcast presenter will officially undertake his role as general manager on November 23rd at Evolution’s ‘Fighting in the Forest’.
Time will tell whether his reign will be one of success; however, his sheer passion and ambitions for the company almost make this inevitable.
