PROGRESS Wrestling Chapter 80 ‘Gods and Monsters’ Results – Do Not Resuscitate face PROGRESS O.G’s, Huge matches made for Chapter 81

PROGRESS’ first ever northern weekender kicked off with the opening battle between the new collective known as Do Not Resuscitate and some of the companies stalwart stars.

Drew Parker and Spike Trivet preyed on Ligero during their match after Trivet delivered his ‘open letter to British Wrestling’, slating the fans for cheering the old guard. Trivet then left for his ‘prior engagement’ only to return to not only cost Ligero his match, catching his leg so Parker can beat him with his small package driver, but to cut off on Ligero’s horns in the process.

D.N.R then made their presence felt following Pete Dunne‘s victory over Mark Andrews. Following Dunne hitting The Better End and a tombstone piledriver to seal the deal, the quartet attacked Mark Andrews, only for Pete Dunne to make the save.

But, Do Not Resuscitate were not done as Chuck Mambo and William Eaver faced Eddie Dennis and Mark Haskins in tag team action, just as Eddie nearly had Mambo tapping out to his own surfboard submission, Drew Parker hit the ring for the DQ. However, before another beatdown could take place, Mark Andrews made the shocking save for Haskins and his former tag partner Eddie Dennis. An awkward exchange ensued between the former F.S.U, but this could be a case of ‘my enemies enemy is my friend’.

Another feud that’s reached a new level in Manchester is the one between Paul Robinson and Chris Ridgeway. In a hard-hitting affair, Robinson took the low road by using a chain to knock out Ridgeway whilst the referee was down. This has led to Ridgeway challenging Robinson to a chain match the following day in Sheffield.

Speaking of Sheffield, L.A.X became the number one contenders to the PROGRESS Tag Team Titles, defeating CCK in another show-stealing contest to earn the right to face Aussie Open for the gold at Chapter 81. Post-match, they challenged eachother for one more match to settle the tie, somewhere down the road.

Finally, there were different fortunes for Moustache Mountain in singles competition. Trent Seven once again successfully defended his PROGRESS Atlas Division Title against Dan Maloney using the burning hammer for victory. Tyler Bate came up short against Ilja Dragunov thanks to a pair of Torpedo Moscows.
