I promised myself in 2017 I would go out more and see more wrestling promotions one on the top of my list was Progress Wrestling.

Progress have been doing some amazing things in UK Wrestling and I wanted to see it for myself and luckily for me, they decided to run a show while I was in Manchester.

I managed to get 2 standing tickets for me and my friend Sabrina and we are ready to go.

Sabrina and Me :)

We get to the venue and luckily the weather holds out while we are queueing outside and then we go into the 02 Ritz.

When I got into the venue the room was nearly full already, I noticed immediately that their seemed to be such an energetic atmosphere. we find a place to stand and shortly after the show is ready to begin.

My Thoughts

I have seen Progress Wrestling Online and with this being my first Progress Show I had high expectations and they were met and surpassed.

Progress (In the best possible way) felt like a drug I want more of.

The Atomsphere at a show is so important and the crowd really do help make these shows, The chants and appreciation and respect for the wrestling and the wrestlers, owners, backstage staff was Tremendous.

As my first Progress live event I was made so welcome and fans were great to talk too and I even managed to Speak to Jim Smallman, Part owner of Progress and our ring announcer for the event - he was great to talk to and massive thank you to him for giving me time to talk to him.

The matches themselves surpassed what I had in my mind to see so much great talent all on one card was such a treat. I was amazed to see how much the fans hate British Strong Style (Dunne, Bate, Severn) they really are despised by the Progress wrestling faithful.

I have been thinking about this for awhile and I cant pick a favourite match from this card - I truly enjoyed it all and all in different ways from the entertainment for Sweet Jesus, to the Craziness that is Session Moth, to the technical ability of Matt Riddle to the high flying ability of Mark Andrews there is something here for everyone.


One thing is for sure I will be coming back to Progress Wrestling very soon, without doubt and without question.

As I speak tickets for Manchester in July 23rd 2017 went on sale and they sold out within a couple of hours - the demand to see this is huge and I can see why.

Progress Wrestling........I'll see you again very very Soon

Thank You for Reading
