3 Huge Title Matches Announced for PROGRESS Chapter 59 incl. The WWE UK Championship


PROGRESS Wrestlng’s 59th Chapter show ‘Whatever People Say We Are That’s What We’re Not’ will be taking place this Sunday from the O2 Academy in Sheffield and it is looking like one of the most stacked cards in company history. The promotion has just announced three absolutely huge title matches for the event and they are as follows:

WWE UK Championship Match – Pete Dunne (c) vs Joseph Conners: Dunne will be defending his WWE title in PROGRESS for the first time on UK soil. Conners has been hounding the champion ever since his recent debut in an attempt to trick Dunne into this predicament. With the hype surrounding Dunne and the excitement his appearances have generated on WWE Television recently it is unlikely that Conners gets the win…however PROGRESS are prone to providing a shock or two.

PROGRESS Tag Team Title Match – Grizzled Young Veterans (c) vs Moustache Mountain – Speaking of shocks…the Grizzled Young Veterans took the PROGRESS Tag Team titles from CCK last week and now they have their first defence lined up. The team of Tyler Bate & Trent Seven have made a huge U-Turn with the PROGRESS crowd and are once again beloved fan favourites, that being said Moustache Mountain appear to be in the same position as Pete Dunne, just awaiting the time that they can finally make a move full time to the WWE roster whether that be on a UK show or NXT.

PROGRESS World Championship Match – Travis Banks (c) vs Eddie Dennis – The fact that I’ve put this match last actually speaks volumes. Sadly Travis has not been setting the world on fire as PROGRESS Champion, his meteoric rise through the ranks of the company to beat Pete Dunne earlier this year was fantastic but the time has come to have a strong heel champion atop the PROGRESS ladder…that man could be Eddie Dennis who recently turned on his longtime friend Mark Andrews and declared that he was gunning for the World Title.
