PROGRESS has announced the full card for their upcoming Chapter 73 event ‘Fourth Shade of Green’ which will be taking place this Sunday July 15th from the O2 Academy in Birmingham, England.
Here’s the lineup for this Sunday:
- PROGRESS Championship Match – Travis Banks v Tyler Bate
- Jimmy Havoc v Drew Parker
- Pete Dunne & Trent Seven v Kings Of The North
- Sexy Starr v Haskins & Webster
- Toni Storm vs Killer Kelly
- TK Cooper vs Rob Lynch
- Eddie Dennis vs Jones
- Mark Andrews vs El Phantasmo
One of the biggest bouts sees Travis Banks defend his PROGRESS World Championship against fellow NXT UK colleague Tyler Bate. The ‘Kiwi Buzzsaw’ Banks has been a dominant reigning World Champion since his win over WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne in September 2017 having avenged losses to Keith Lee and Matt Riddle whilst Champion. Banks also featured in arguably the best PROGRESS bout of 2017 when he defeated Will Ospreay as part of the Unboxing Live show in December, again to retain his title.
Tyler Bate is of course a name that fans of the WWE United Kingdom specials will know well. The inaugural UK Champion has seen his stock rise exponentially over the past year with performances on WWE’s 205 Live and NXT Takeover where he had arguably the match of the year against Pete Dunne; having said that the momentum that PROGRESS has found since ‘turning’ Banks against the fans (he would say that they turned against him) has been nothing short of phenomenal and when he finally drops the title it will be a huge moment and a chance to coronate a new champion and usher in a new era for the UK based company.

Jimmy Havoc v Drew Parker
Travis Banks v Tyler Bate
Pete Dunne & Trent Seven v Kings Of The North
Sexy Starr v Haskins & Webster
