Progress Wrestling will be making their New York debut on August 12th as part of a doubleheader with Evolve. Here’s the announcement via Progress:
This past Wrestlemania weekend, we came to Orlando and were made to feel incredibly welcome, not only by the travelling British fans, but by a whole load of North American (and beyond) fans who were experiencing what we do for the first time.
We’ve been asked pretty much daily to come and do another show in the US ever since then… and we’ve listened.
SATURDAY, 12TH AUGUST, we’ve teamed up once again with our friends at WWN for a double-header of shows at the ELMCORE CENTER, QUEENS, NEW YORK CITY.
Progress will run at 8pm, and there will also be an Evolve show at 4pm in the same building.
Tickets will be available soon from ticketfly.com – we’ll let you know when they are.
Obviously no word on a full card yet, but we can confirm that PROGRESS World Champion PETE DUNNE, as well as PROGRESS Tag Team Champions TYLER BATE and TRENT SEVEN will be there, as well as Progress regulars, some of our regular roster who are based in the US, and some wrestlers making their US debuts that day.
And of course, the show will be available on Demand Progress a week or so after it happens.
Exciting stuff. Hope you can join us for the show!
Jim, Jon and Glen
Speaking of Evolve, after a successful debut in Detroit and Chicago this past weekend the promotion will be coming back in September. Evolve announced shows on the night of their events at both respective locations – tickets went on sale inside of the venue for fans already in attendance following the show. The Detroit show will take place on Friday September 22nd followed by the Chicago show on Saturday September 23rd.
After defeating Donovan Dijak on Friday and Fred Yehi on Saturday, Keith Lee was given the choice of challenging for the belt of his choice. At the end of Evolve 85 in Detroit, Lee chose Riddle’s WWN Title. That match will take place on June 25th at the La Boom nightclub in Queens.
