We announced our ATLAS CHAMPIONSHIP at Chapter 27 yesterday; wrestlers over the weight of 205lbs will be eligible to compete for this brand-new PROGRESS title.

To decide the first ever Atlas Champion, we have picked two groups of four wrestlers who will compete in a round-robin format, with the eventual final being held at CHAPTER 36: WE’RE GONNA NEED A BIGGER ROOM… AGAIN at the historic Brixton Academy on Sunday September 25th.

We can now announce the eight men who will be competing in this massive (in every sense of the word) tournament:

GROUP A will be made up of Austrian giant BIG DADDY WALTER, the incredibly physical T-BONE, new to PROGRESS “Irresistible” IESTYN REES and Origin member and all around Bastard, DAVE MASTIFF.

GROUP B consists of former PROGRESS champion RAMPAGE BROWN, “The Ironman” JOE COFFEY, Belfast’s own “Big” DAMO O’CONNOR and former PROGRESS tag team champion MICHAEL DANTE.

Oof. Just… oof. MATCHES BEGIN AT CHAPTER 28 IN MANCHESTER ON APRIL 10th! Get tickets right here.
