Re: PROGRESS Wrestling Thread

Progress is def the promotion WWE has seemed to put their hooks in the most when it came to the overall roster. Nearly every match has someone who is signed, so it's just kind of at that point now.

Then there's David Starr out there in the main event. Huh.

You suck the blood of the afflicted.

I just watched Chapter 94: Cheer Up Juice

I thought it would be weird as well, but I really enjoyed Eddie Dennis intro and segments. He carried the show really well.

In fact I enjoyed the entire show because it didn't feel like the usual NXT UK lite. I know Banks and Grizzled Vets were there but it had a rebuild/new feel. Thanks to Paul Robinson his fantastic promo made it feel like Progress again.

Card:

Travis Banks vs Rickey Shane Page
Do Not Resuscitate vs The NIC
Jody Threat vs Dani Luna vs Gisele Shaw vs YUU
Paul Robinson vs Lucky Kid
CCK vs South Pacific Power Trip
Shigehiro Irie vs The O.J.M.O.
Aussie Open (c) vs Grizzled Young Veterans - Tag Team Titles Match

Jim not being there is something Progress fans are going to have to get used to after Chapter 100. I look forward to it!

Re: PROGRESS Wrestling Thread

Paul Robinson is gonna have to support a lot at this rate, and I'm all for that.

Re: PROGRESS Wrestling Thread

Seemed the obvious outcome but
Spoiler for Progress:
Eddie Dennis cashed in his title shot during the main event and won the Progress Championship

Re: PROGRESS Wrestling Thread

Nice of Progress to make their WWE talent feel at home by emulating their booking.

Re: PROGRESS Wrestling Thread

When will Starr win the big one? I love Dennis but come on, this was the perfect time for Starr to finally:
1) Beat WALTER
2) Become World Champion

I even thought after his loss at Summer Sizzler, he'd be winning at Chapter 95, but apparently not.

Re: PROGRESS Wrestling Thread

Progress had a chance to steal the climax to the Starr vs Walter feud. Although it's a feud almost completely built up by other companies like OTT and WXW so maybe.... maybe Starr and Walter didn't want to do this in Progress.

If Walter and Starr were willing to have their feud pay off at this show and Progress didn't take it then they're just idiots. Maybe politics tieds their hands. But instead of having the blow off to europes version of Omega vs Okada they've done a corny Wrestlemania 31 knock off and I think that says everything about Progress in 2019.
