I guess Scurll is gonna retain it in the Thunderbastard. Hope it will launch a new real storyline.

Watched chapter 25. Haskins vs Zack was probably MOTN, would've been Osprey vs Scurll but near the end the no selling and kick outs just got ridiculous and pointless. The match at the start was really fucking good though.

I hope Morgan Webster wins it at chapter 27.



This is actually fucking awesome. Can't wait to see who is in the matches!

re: PROGRESS Wrestling Thread

This is actually pretty bad. Every good company in the world should stay as far as possible from the WWE.

You really think let's say Jimmy Havoc wrestling one or two matches in NXT (where Indy wrestlers are taken seriously) would do him harm?

Nothing.

It could hurt the promotion though in the long run though and I think that's what Stetho means. WWE giving indy guys a look and a spot in a WWE Network show is all fine and dandy (And I guess it's a nice rub for the indy fed to have WWE linked to them). The issue is when WWE goes ahead and signs all of those wrestlers and leaves the indy fed with a huge hole. I don't buy the whole gimmick of WWE caring about indy wrestling for a second. Ultimately they're interested in increasing what they have. Vince Jr. killed the territories by doing the same thing that HHH is doing currently with the indies.

If they didn't care about the indys instead of paying for a whole new promotion (NXT) to build these guys up, see what their good at and get them ready they would just chuck them on the main roster and do fuck all with them. I also fucking hate this notion on WWE killing the indies, what fucking company wouldn't try to sign the best talent that could be good for their show? It's not like the wrestlers are forced to. Blame the talent for being 'unloyal' or whatever and wanting to follow their dream, not the company simply offering them a place.

re: PROGRESS Wrestling Thread

Thankfully, Jimmy Havoc & Will Ospreay won't be able to participate in this tournament, due to Havoc being signed by TNA, & Ospreay being signed bu NJPW. Also, Havoc's injured.

Hopefully Scurll & Haskins won't be in the qualifying matches.

I agree, but there are only so many spots, and WWE already has more talent than they know what to do with. At this point they're overfishing and it seems like they're signing guys for the sake of signing them, with no real plan for them; which is terrible, especially at a time when WWE feels like a chore to watch. If they had any real intention of allowing the indie feds to benefit from their "working agreements", and helping the indies as HHH claims, they'd be allowing their contracted wrestlers to be involved in the promotions that they work with (EVOLVE especially considering HHH has Gabe in his back pocket) rather than send someone to a show for an autograph signing, or an in-ring segment that can't be aired. They're going to eliminate the alternatives, which is an awful thing for the business. A WWE monopoly is not a good thing, no matter how great the WWE contracted talent is.

But on topic: I could see Marty Scurll, Morgan Webster, Mark Haskins, and/or Tommy End being a part of this.
