Happy weekend everyone! Eight days to go until Chapter 31, fifteen to Chapter 32… so lots of stuff to update you on!
Next Sunday afternoon (19th) is CHAPTER 31: ALL HAIL THE NEW PURITANS at the Ritz in Manchester. SHOW DETAILS AND TICKET LINK HERE.
Six matches have been announced, and they’re all absolute crackers. We have PROGRESS CHAMPION MARTY SCURLL defending his title against “The Knockout Artist” CHRIS HERO; PROGRESS TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS THE LONDON RIOTS making their first defense against number one contenders THE DAZZLER TEAM; further tag team shenanigans as crowd favourites FSU (Mark Andrews and Eddie Dennis) take on PETE and DAMIAN DUNNE; any interference and BOTH women will be fired as POLLYANNA clashes with DAHLIA BLACK; ATLAS CHAMPIONSHIP points on offer as JOE COFFEY and DAMO O’CONNOR go toe to toe with MICHAEL DANTE and RAMPAGE BROWN; and DAMON MOSER blazes a path of revenge towards the Origin as he takes on ZACK GIBSON.
We’re down to the very last handful of seats, after that it’s standing room only. Trust us, this will be a blast. CLICK HERE TO GET YOUR TICKETS.
Then it’s just a week until we return to London for CHAPTER 32: 5000 TO 1 at the Electric Ballroom in Camden on Sunday afternoon, June 26th. SHOW DETAILS HERE. The show has – like every other London Chapter – long since SOLD OUT, but you may be able to snag a return via Twickets. Click here to try and get one.
Three matches have been announced so far for this show: Canada’s SMASH WRESTLING CHAMPION JOHNNY GARGANO will defend his title in an open challenge match; ATLAS CHAMPIONSHIP points are once again on offer in a tag match as DAVE MASTIFF and T-BONE take on IESTYN REES and BIG DADDY WALTER; and a long-standing score will be settled as the South Pacific Power Couple’s TK COOPER goes one on one with JACK SEXSMITH. Plus four more matches to be announced for this one!
Three and a half months until our BIGGEST EVER SHOW: CHAPTER 36: WE’RE GONNA NEED A BIGGER ROOM… AGAIN at the historic, iconic BRIXTON ACADEMY on the afternoon of Sunday September 25th. Three quarters of the tickets for this show – the biggest British wrestling show in London for years – have already been sold. We want to see YOU there and we promise this will be a show fitting of the occasion. You might have seen the MASSIVE adverts for this show on the big screens at the Download Festival…
So far we have announced the third match in a epic trilogy between ZACK SABRE JR and TOMMASO CIAMPA; and we have also announced that the final of our ATLAS CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT to crown our first 205+lb champion will take place that afternoon. We have lots more great stuff planned, so come along, support our little company AND be there when British wrestling history is made.
Up on DEMAND PROGRESS now are BOTH days of the quite ridiculously brilliant CHAPTER 30: SUPER STRONG STYLE 16 2016 tournament, featuring some of the best matches in PROGRESS history. Obviously you can watch those shows and everything else we’ve ever produced for the princely sum of a fiver a month. Sign up, support what we do, be entertained by a ton of awesome wrestling from the past four and a bit years.
Finally, you can order the limited edition DVD of SSS16 and grab yourself one of the last few pieces of selected bits and bobs of merchandise over at the shop page. We’ve also now got a Pro Wrestling Tees site if you’re after one of our classic, out of print designs. Click here to check that out.
Enjoy your weekend! Hopefully see you all over the next couple of weeks in Manchester and Camden.
Jim, Jon and Glen
This. Is. PROGRESS.
