Event: Progress Chapter 83 – Remove Child Before Ironing
Venue: The Electric Ballroom, Camden, London
Submitted by: Steve Harris
Ilja Dragunov over Timothy Thatcher
A very good opener, heavy on hard-hitting offense, light on selling.
Nina Samuels over Laura Di Matteo
Do Not Resuscitate (Drew Parker and Spike Trivet) over Eddie Dennis and Mark Haskins
The referee was taken out early on and this allowed a lot of weapon spots and crowd brawling, including a Razors Edge by Dennis on Parker into the fourth row which looked insane
Angelico over Jody Fleisch
A few shaky moments in this match which prevented it from really gathering any steam, hopefully not the last we’ll see of these two as they are both capable of much better.
Number One Contender Match for the Progress Tag Team Championship
Aussie Open (Mark Davis and Kyle Fletcher) over Do Not Resuscitate (Pastor William Eaver and Chuck Mambo)
Chris Ridgeway over Shigehiro Irie
The best match of the night, in my opinion, Irie has made a lot of fans during his stay in the UK, and Ridgeway’s reputation is steadily growing. Ridgeway asked for a shot at Progress Champion WALTER after the match.
Progress Tag Team Championship
Swords of Essex (Will Ospreay and Paul Robinson) over CCK (Chris Brookes and Kid Lykos)
This was a great match until Ospreay clotheslined Lykos over the top rope, and it was clear there was a problem. The remaining three men finished the match but the attention of the audience was on Lykos receiving medical attention on the outside. Kid Lykos had terrible luck with injuries in 2018 and it seems he’s been struck down again. The Swords of Essex cut a heel promo mocking Lykos to end the show.
Progress Wrestling posted an update after the show regarding the injury sustained by Kid Lykos.
