PROGRESS Chapter 81 ‘Pour Some PROGRESS On Me’ Review

Added by Laura Brooke

So this time 12 months ago, we were all freezing our bits off watching a weather-emasculated card. Fortunately, a year later there’s about as much sign of snow as there is of Jack Sexsmith’s push. Prior to the show WALTER completely kills kayfabe by getting out of the same cab as Shigehiro Irie. They could at least have dropped […]

Added by Andrew Ogden

Added by Josh From grapsNthat

So as I entered the Portsmouth Guildhall for my 1st ever Rev-Pro show I noticed the merch stands to my left, full with Rev-Pro apparel and NJPW gear. It is so easy to spend so much money at these shows but I kept mine locked tight in my pocket until the obvious arrival of “THE […]

Added by Daniel DeMarco

Game Changer Wrestling kicked off a big wrestling weekend by making its debut in Southern California, providing fans with an entirely different spectacle than they were sure to see the following nights.

A stacked card marks PROGRESS Wrestling’s return up north to Manchester for the first time since May, this time returning to its usual home-from-home in the form of the O2 Ritz – only a two- and-a-half hour journey from my home in North Wales as opposed to the four hours that lies between me and […]

Added by Dei Owen

Another four-hour journey down south from a little village in North Wales to the nation’s capital saw my fifth PROGRESS Wrestling show at the Electric Ballroom in Camden.
