PROGRESS WRESTLING returns to Islington on 24th June
In March this year, PROGRESS Wrestling held their debut show at The Garage in Islington, London. It was a sell-out and an undeniable success.
In April, promoters Jim Smallman and Jon Briley released the DVD of the March show. To date it has sold approximately 4 times as many copies as most British wrestling DVDs,
necessitating a second print run, and has received rave reviews not only in the UK, but from the top international wrestling media outlets. PROGRESS Wrestling has been very
favourably compared to the best of independent wrestling from around the world.
In May, the ﬁrst three matches for the follow-up show on 24th June were announced. Now, with just over two weeks to go until the event, the full card is listed below:
PROGRESS Title Match: Nathan Cruz v Marty Scurll, 2 Out Of 3 Falls
Number One Contender’s Match: El Ligero v Greg Burridge v RJ Singh
*BWC Scarlo Scholarship Title Match: Mark Andrews v “Wild Boar” Mike Hitchman
*International superstar Lion Kid v UK standout Stixx
Britain’s best young talent Noam Dar v London’s own high-ﬂyer Darrell Allen
The Velocity Vipers v The London Riots (tag team match)
One match still to be announced: will the social media campaign of noted “deathmatch”
wrestler Jimmy Havoc result in a match on the 24th June? Search #BookHavoc for the
history of this campaign.
*these two matches aren’t ofﬁcially announced until the afternoon of 7th June. Please don’t
“spoil” the announcements by making them public until then!
PROGRESS Wrestling showcases the very best of UK talent – those names that are next
in line to follow in the footsteps of current WWE stars like Sheamus and Wade Barrett, or
TNA stars such as Magnus and Doug Williams. We also use the very best international
talent: for example, former WWE star Colt Cabana featured on our debut show in March,
and PROGRESS roster member Zack Sabre Jr is currently working his second tour of
Japan with Pro Wrestling Noah.
PROGRESS shows are for an adult audience, with an atmosphere that is raucous, feisty
and grown-up. No children are allowed into the venue; minimum age for attendance is 14,
and fans under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Our shows are hard-hitting, realistic
and combative – much closer to Mixed Martial Arts than to “World Of Sport”. The days of
Big Daddy, Giant Haystacks et al are long gone!
