We promised that tonight would be a HUGE #matchnewsmonday, and we weren’t lying. We needed to come up with a suitable main event for our third anniversary show CHAPTER 18: THE SHOW THAT WE’RE NOT ALLOWED TO CALL PROGRESSLEMANIA FOR LEGAL REASONS on Sunday March 22nd at the Electric Ballroom (which remember, SOLD OUT in just 36 minutes – waiting list for returns is right here).
We have a problem. His name is PROGRESS Champion JIMMY HAVOC. For over a year he has cheated and used whatever skullduggery and shortcuts he can to remain champ. So we’re going to throw absolutely everything we can at him… in a SIX WAY ELIMINATION MATCH FOR THE PROGRESS TITLE.
Mr Havoc will defend against five men. Four have genuine claims on the belt around his waist, and the fifth is a little curveball that we’ll toss in his direction. So then… who is he facing?
NOAM DAR – a man who in many fans eyes has had Havoc beaten before, making him tap out as his shoulders were counted down.
WILL OSPREAY – unlucky in his last encounter with Havoc, and a victim of our so-called champion’s cheating throughout, including removing the top rope.
MARTY SCURLL – fresh of a win over former champion El Ligero, “The Villain” is a perennial number one contender and someone who knows Havoc very well indeed.
DAVE MASTIFF – “The Bastard” has faced Havoc in a three-way match and wasn’t pinned, so the big man will be gunning to destroy him.
PAUL ROBINSON – And here’s a nice curveball. Hey, Paul? What do you want more? To be Havoc’s little bitch, or have that nice title to yourself?
ALSO… don’t forget as we announced last week that we need your help naming our tournament in May – details here – and we’ll let you know more info about the two-day event (on Sunday May 24th and Bank Holiday Monday May 25th) later on this month. Tickets go on sale on Monday March 2nd! YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS OUT, TRUST US!
We always like to end with #thisisprogress, but may we also say #DieHavocDie.
Jim, Jon and Glen
