Backstage Update on Who Ran Evolution PPV, Different Light Used

According to, the same production crew that works The WWE NXT brand also worked the recent WWE Evolution PPV. Most of the production workers who do The RAW & SmackDown LIVE PPV Events were not in attendance for Evolution as they were in Charlotte, North Carolina for Monday’s RAW when Evolution hit the air.
WWE’s Kevin Dunn was also not in attendance for Evolution and did not direct Evolution. Evolution was directed by the same person who oversees The NXT Takeover Events and the production truck was ran by the same crew that handles TakeOvers.
On a related note, WWE went with a different lighting in the arena for Evolution as a way to give the show a different feel from the “glitzier” WWE productions that we usually see for the main roster.
It was previously reported that WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon was backstage for Evolution. noted that Vince reportedly arrived just before the show was to begin and spent most of the night “observing the event” in The Gorilla Position.
