The card is set to feature a slew of exciting action, including a first time ever bout pitting current EVOLVE champion Timothy Thatcher against former Ring of Honor (ROH) champion "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin. Also, "The Premiere Athlete" Tony Nese will make his Tier 1 Wrestling debut to challenge for the promotion's title in a match that is to be determined.

Current Tier 1 Wrestling champion Rude Boy Riley defends his title against 'The International King of Swerve' Shane Strickland.on February 27th at Revival Pro Wrestling's 'Clear and Present Danger.' If Strickland wins the title, the match at 'March to Victory' will be a triple threat match. If Riley retains his championship, the title match will be a one-on-one contest versus Nese.

"We're incredibly excited to be bringing this show to the world via WWNLive.com," said Tier 1 Wrestling promoter Dennis Long. "We have a great list of talent that's hell-bent on breaking out and flipping the business on its ear, so it's definitely gonna be an exciting night."

This event will be the first time Tier 1 Wrestling can be watched live on iPPV. The triumvirate of EVOLVE 56, 'March to Victory,' and EVOLVE 57 can be viewed on WWNLive.com and those who order all three shows will get the chance to view a video on demand (VOD) of their choosing from WWNLive's library in addition to one of the past three Tier 1 Wrestling shows.

Names such as "All Ego" Ethan Page, Darius Carter, Nutrious X, VsK, Sonny Kiss, Milk Chocolate, "The Elite Athlete" Mike Orlando, and a soon-to-be-announced former ECW and WWE superstar are all scheduled to appear. For a full list of the names set for the show, you can view it at this link. 

Having hosted their first three shows in Queens and Long Island, Tier 1 Wrestling will make it way to Brooklyn for the first time. With local promotions such as Five Borough Wrestling and others having hosted some classic shows and matches at the American Legion, Tier 1 Wrestling will look to follow suit.

"Brooklyn is becoming an increasingly popular destination for pro-wrestling, and it's known for being very progressive, so it's fitting that a company like Tier 1 is going to be taking center stage there," said Long. "We're very big on what we like to call 'The Youth Movement,' so putting some of pro-wrestling's most exciting young stars on display in Brooklyn is definitely going to be special."
