Top NJPW Star Returns to PROGRESS Wrestling

PROGRESS Wrestling presented their Super Strong Style 16 tournament this past weekend and we have a ton of news coming out from the culmination of this historic weekender. Keep up with all of our daily coverage on the UK’s biggest promotion here.

One of the most shocking moments came on Monday night, the longest reigning PROGRESS World Champion Jimmy Havoc had just taken part in a hellacious Deathmatch with US star Joey Janela when his arch nemesis and IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay made his return to the company.

Ospreay stated that he had returned to PROGRESS to challenge Havoc, but he wanted the “sadistic, psychotic and twisted” version of the former World Champion at the Wembley Arena Supershow on September 30th and not (as he described) “a bloke called James.” Many fans in Alexandra Palace described this as one of the greatest moments in PROGRESS history and it will be available to view in full on PROGRESS’ On Demand service within a week.
