It was PROGRESS’ biggest show out of London to date, and Chapter 69 delivered with new champions and the scene at Wembley Arena becoming a little more clear.

The queen has ascended to her throne at Victoria Warehouse in Manchester as Jinny captured the PROGRESS Women’s Championship in a wild match against Toni Storm. In a contest that had interference from House of Couture members Nina Samuels and Chakara and a referee bump that all lead to Storm clearly having Jinny beat on two separate occasions, Jinny managed to shock Toni with a roll-up to capture the gold. Post-match, Storm seemed to tease that this would be her PROGRESS farewell, but then said she was coming after Jinny to get back her belt.

We crowned a new Atlas Champion, as the veteran Doug Williams snapped his losing streak by beating Joseph Connors with the Chaos Theory suplex in a four way that also featured former champ Rampage Brown and Rob Lynch.

Another colossal match was made for September at Wembley Arena as WxW owner Christian Michael Jakobi came out to confront Pete Dunne after his match to get him to accept the match against Ilja Dragunov. What Dunne did not expect however, was for Dragunov to appear at Victoria Warehouse to meet ‘The Bruiserweight’ face to face and get the match he wanted.

Before this, Dunne and his British Strong Style teammate Tyler Bate lost a two-on-three handicap match against Jimmy Havoc, Mark Haskins and Flash Morgan Webster (Trent Seven was pulled from the match due to injury). Havoc hit Bate with a barbed wire baseball bat that Webster tried to take away from Vicky Haskins, then one Kiss of Death later meant that the trio remains undefeated.

Jack Sexsmith came up short in his huge PROGRESS World Title match against Travis Banks, despite coming close on several occasions. Banks did try to leave the match again, only for WALTER to stop him in his tracks. Banks finished off Sexsmith with two Kiwi Crushers and forcing a referee stoppage when Sexsmith passed out in the Lions Clutch.

We also saw a continuation of the bitter rivalry that has crossed borders and promotions as WALTER beat David Starr again, when Starr fell victim to an insider cradle when attempting a figure four leg-lock, after spending the match working on WALTER’s knee.

The Thunderbastard Tag Team Tournament Series kicked off as Aussie Open beat the team of Maverick Mayhew and Connor Mills when Kyle Fletcher and Mark Davis hit the Fidget Spinner of Mayhew.

Finally, Zack Sabre Jr continued his unreal momentum after winning this years Super Strong Style 16 Tournament, forcing Mark Andrews to tap out with Hyper Normalisation.
