NXT’s Je’Von Evans Eyes Dream Matches with Randy Orton and Rey Mysterio

One big thing: Je’Von Evans sets sights on WWE legends

NXT rising star Je’Von Evans has revealed his dream opponents from the WWE main roster, naming Randy Orton and Rey Mysterio as his top picks.

Why it matters

• Evans’ aspirations highlight the ambition of NXT’s young talent.
• These dream matches could potentially bridge the gap between NXT and the main roster.

By the numbers

• Evans is 20 years old.
• He signed with WWE in late 2022 at age 19.
• Evans has several years of independent wrestling experience.

What they’re saying

Je’Von Evans vs. Randy Orton or Je’Von Evans vs. Rey Mysterio,” Evans said on the “Under The Ring” podcast. “Rey Mysterio because he’s such an O.G. wrestler, and he can still move. He can still do what he used to do, so I feel like I could learn under that. And Randy Orton because he’s one of the greatest of all time.”

The big picture

Evans is focused on his immediate future in NXT, where he’s set to compete in a Fatal Four-Way match for the NXT Championship at NXT Heatwave.

• This will be Evans’ WWE premium live event debut.
• He earned his title shot by winning a battle royale last month.
• The match also includes champion Trick Williams, Ethan Page, and Shawn Spears.

What’s next

A strong showing at NXT Heatwave could put Evans on the path to realizing his dream matches sooner rather than later.
