Re: PROGRESS Wrestling Thread

They've done a SMASH vs. PROGRESS show in the past, but it's awesome that they are finally doing a standalone show in Toronto.

Re: PROGRESS Wrestling Thread

Here's the bracket for SSS16:



I guess I'll go with Devlin to win.

Also saw the ladder match between Aussie Open and Swords of Essex from the last show. Honestly I think I liked their previous normal tag match better. They put supreme effort into the ladder match, but it did go way long to the point of self indulgence and some of the bumps they took were just stupid. Not good stupid. Just stupid. How Robinson was OK after missing that 450 off the stage is beyond me.

Re: PROGRESS Wrestling Thread

Phenomenal 3 day event. Got a bit misty eyed with the Jimmy Havoc bit.

Re: PROGRESS Wrestling Thread

Been out of the loop with PROGRESS for probably about the last year but I figured I'd watch this year's SSS16 as its PROGRESS' biggest show of the year and if I do decide to get back into PROGRESS, SSS16 is usually like the beginning of a new season for the promotion.

This year's SSS16 bracket is a strange one, I don't really know what has happened over the last twelve or so months but there are a lot of names missing from this tournament that I think of as synonymous with PROGRESS. Still, with the talent they have there are lots of intriguing match ups but it seems PROGRESS decided to make the first round out of the least obvious combinations you could think of, rather than necessarily the most interesting combinations. I guess potentially this could mean that PROGRESS strikes some surprise brilliance but since this is a single elimination tournament, it seems a shame to miss out on some potentially mouth watering combinations in the hope that throwing two opposites together will make some magic. I mean I had a look at Cagematch and this is the worst rated SSS16 ever and it looks like PROGRESS in general has been getting some pretty meh ratings for the last year or two on there too. It is a shame as this was my favourite promotion once upon a time but I just ended up not having enough free time to keep up with it and do everything else I need to do but if the quality has dipped as hard as this show suggests and as much as the Cagematch ratings suggest then I guess I made the right choice.

Overall in terms of the show, I was going to do a match by match breakdown but honestly I was pretty meh on everything here. There is no actual bad match on this card necessarily but it really felt like PROGRESS was banging through these at pace so very few of the matches really left any real lasting impression.

The only match thinking back on it that really stands out is the Spencer/Starr match, partially because Starr is one of the best wrestlers anywhere today but also because I'd never heard of Spencer before and he just looked like a total mess and the next thing I see he is flying around the ring and I was just like... holy shit.

The other of course being the O'Reilly match but that was more for the novelty of him being in a PROGRESS ring. The air guitar battle was better than the actual match. I am also glad he isn't one and done, they had quite a lot of imports go out against PROGRESS regulars here which I guess makes sense but it seems a shame to see some of these guys get nothing but a ten minute long nothing match and then vanish. Especially given commentary gave quite a lot of the losers more compelling stories than the victors.

I hope the quarters are better. We've seen it a few times in PROGRESS but Starr and Banks usually deliver the goods. Dragunov/Lee and O'Reilly/Robinson are both intriguing prospects although not really where I expected the tournament to go. The highest rated out of the four on cagematch is the one I am least interested in, Devlin v Fletcher. Everything else other than the WALTER Seven match I'll probably skip on Day 2.
