PROGRESS Wrestling Chapter 78 ’24 Hour PROGRESS People’ Results – A Night Of Debuts And Returns In Manchester

PROGRESS Wrestling headed to Manchester for what many are calling ‘one of the best shows PROGRESS have ever put on’ in a night of debuts, returns and heated title contests.

WALTER stood tall once again at PROGRESS World Champion, after felling yet another challenger in the form of Mark Haskins. WALTER retained his gold after dropping Haskins with a Fire Thunder Driver for the three count.

A former PROGRESS World Champion made his return as Travis Banks denied the Manchester crowd a finish to an epic confrontation between David Starr and Ilja Dragunov. He attacked both men, leading to a double disqualification and even took out referees and ringside crew! Whatever the situation, a statement was made by the first participant in the 2019 Super Strong Style 16 tournament.

Zack Gibson will not forget this night in a hurry as he answered the open challenge of PROGRESS Atlas Division Champion Trent Seven. After a verbal confrontation, Gibson was embarrassed when Seven caught him with a cross body, pinning his challenger in FIVE seconds. This goes to all but erase the memory of Seven’s record breaking six second loss to Matt Riddle a few years ago.

PROGRESS Tag Team Champion Aussie Open held on to their gold against the Calamari Thatch Kings, when Kyle Fletcher countered Chris Brookes’ roll-up attempt for the victory, as Mark Davis blocked off Timothy Thatcher.

In another match that tore the house down, Jordan Devlin defeated Chris Ridgeway when ‘The Killer Import’ dropped Ridgeway with the package piledriver. This match caught the eye of one Paul Robinson, who came out and questioned whether Ridgeway was really ‘hard as fuck’. This led to Robinson challenging him to a match next month when they return to Manchester.

Finally, we had a duo of debuts in PROGRESS, both ending in defeat. Eddie Dennis saw off ‘Speedball’ Mike Bailey with a pair of Next Stop Driver’s and Isla Dawn defeated the debuting Lana Austin with the ocean cyclone suplex for the three count.
