Kadaveri posted a topic in September 2018I'm writing this review now on just having got home from seeing the show. It should be available to watch on their streaming service in a few days and this match is really worth seeking out. It's for the Progress World Title. Tyler is the "Big Strong Boy" who's facing a huge strong man in the champion Walter. Walter (got a live violin duo playing his entrance theme) totally dominated the opening half, lots of basic wrestling and tests of strength type manoeuvres, however hard he fights nothing Tyler does seems to have any significant effect on Walter. It's like he's just made out of brick. The fighting spills out to the floor at one point and Tyler manages to reverse a suplex attempt into one of his own to the floor! I don't think I've ever heard a simple vertical suplex get such a loud pop from the crowd. Pete Dunne and Trent Seven are now at ringside urging Tyler on, as well are the crowd who are 75% loudly behind him (and the remaining 25% is mostly a vocal pro-Walter section). Now even the pop for the suplex wasn't as loud as the huge roar for Tyler as he's stuck in a sleeper hold urging him to fight out of it. It's remarkable how a match mostly consisting of moves that wouldn't look out of place in the 1970s is getting the biggest reactions of the show and feels like a real big match showdown. The match reaches it very logical outcome at the end. Yet another strong title defence for Walter. ****1/2
GOTNW posted a topic in November 2016Decided to check this out since I heard it was 8 minutes long and relatively one sided but was disappointed to find out it was nowhere near as good as it was hyped to be. Ok, so you have Riddle blindsight Ospreay with an amazing knee strike before the bell rings. That ruled. Then he starts slamming him around-and the throws he does look great, the Fisherman Buster in particular looked like he decapitated Ospreay. What he does inbetween the slams isn't very good-his chops are eye rolling and for most of his strikes he still hasn't managed to figure out how to make it look good without hitting full force. I find the overreacting incredibly annoying-good for the crowd and the commentator for enjoying themselves, but screaming at every single spot they do every two seconds is a bit much, especially if you've watched, ahem, any Riddle and Ospreay match before, ever. Ospreay was surprisingly tolerable here-his flippy nonsense is much better as a means of a comeback. If they worked it like that instead of just having Ospreay do on a moves spray maybe the match could've been good. But between the ridiculous New Japan cosplay no selling strike exchanges, sound effect kicks and the overreliance on constant pop-ups and countering in the finishing stretch this one felt like a missed opportunity more than anything. **1/2
This is Progress! Hello Wrestling fans , this is a topic created and geared towards the On Demand service provided by Progress Wrestling in England. I want to create discussion and awareness of this fantastic service that provides great wrestling of all styles! Some of the best new talent have made a name for themselves here and some of the best matches on the planet in the past couple years have come from performers such as Will Osprey , Marty Scurll , Tommy End , Jimmy Havok and many others! The service has every major show it has ever ran. The shows are setup in Chapters and each chapter has a unique name for each show. It's a very creative company with lots of potential and loads of room for growth , the fan base is very loyal and passionate to the promotion and the energy comming from the audience makes for a very enjoyable program. The price for the service is 7 dollars and it's worth every penny , the shows are uploaded reasonably quickly and they are in very good quality and the production is major league. I recommend starting from chapter one , but it's easy to start anywhere and you will quickly fall in love with this company and become a loyal fan for years to come.
