It has been well documented that the UK independent wrestling scene is as hot now as it ever has been. New companies with top UK talents such as Lucha Forever, VII Pro Wrestling, Riot House Promotions and big money WCPW have been blossoming from the impact that top UK indies such as PROGRESS, ICW and Revolution Pro have had over the past few years.
With that another new company has emerged with their first event announced for the Hackney Showroom in London on August 20th. Known as Unprofessional Wrestling (@UnPro_Wrestling), they will be holding an 8-Man tournament to crown their first Champion and here are some of the bigger names that have been announced for the night:
‘Flash’ Morgan Webster – One of PROGRESS Wrestling’s most popular homegrown stars, Webster recently returned from an injury sustained against Zack Sabre Jr at the WWE Crusierweight Classic qualifying rounds back at PROGRESS Chapter 29.

El Ligero – Ligero is quite possibly the hardest working man in the UK scene today having fought in nearly 2,000 matches over his 15 year career. He recently featured on the ITV World of Sport reboot that aired in the UK on New Years Eve.

Pastor William Eaver – A product of the PROGRESS Wrestling School (known as the ProJo), Pastor William Eaver has become one of the most beloved figures in PROGRESS today. He is now starting to make a name for his himself across the UK and Europe and looks set to have a big impact in 2017.

Jack Sexsmith – Sexsmith is one of the most intriguing characters in wrestling today, having started as a comedy character in PROGRESS wrestling he has grown to be a huge crowd favourite that may possibly be in line for a world championship run at some point this year. Maybe he can be the top guy in UnPro?
