Man Like Dereiss
● Sunshine Machine are finally on the top of the mountain as PROGRESS Tag Team Champions. Their first defence will be against a team that have never tagged before but unquestionably two talent with the brightest futures in wrestling, Ricky Knight Jr and Leon Slater.
● Big Guns Joe looks to put down a marker as a revitalised star in PROGRESS. His opposition comes in the form of LK Mezinger who looks for their first victory after a protracted series of losses.
● Charles Crowley and Maggot’s interaction at Super Strong Style 16 was always going to lead to an interaction and here we are. This promises to be both unique and strange.
● Nick Wayne has a lot of expectation attached to him and here he makes his UK and European debut against the high-flying Robbie X, himself only just back to PROGRESS. This will be hectic.
● There is no love lost between Raven Creed and Lana Austin and finally they get to face off with each other but with Alexxis Falcon accompanying Raven and a seemingly paid off Eliza Alexander with Lana.
● Chris Ridgeway showed a vindictive side to himself destroying people on his way to winning Super Strong Style and becoming PROGRESS World Champion. Dean Allmark was the first person in that tournament to see that vicious side. Since Dean already holds a victory over Chris, from his PROGRESS debut no less, this was always going to be the decider, and now for the biggest prize in European wrestling.
● PROGRESS Women’s World Champion The Dragon Slayer Kanji makes her first title defence against the Number One contender Laura Di Matteo. A hard hitting, technical affair should be in the offing knowing the incredible pedigree of both talent. Who will walk away champion?
● Two talent start and an extra wrestler is added every three minutes until they are eliminated by pinfall, submission or disqualification. With eight wrestlers in total knowing that the prize is a PROGRESS title shot whenever and wherever they want to take that shot there is no greater motivation for Tischer, Moloney, Black, Munny, Lykos, Dereiss, Trivet and Robbie X.
