PROGRESS has announced a major Champion vs Champion bout for their upcoming Super Strong Style 16 weekender which takes place May 5th/6th/7th from Alexandra Palace in London, England.
The company’s World Champion Travis Banks will be defending his crown against the current reigning ATLAS Division Champion WALTER. Banks’ long anticipated title reign recently took an unexpected turn, fans of PROGRESS (specifically in the Electric Ballroom) began to turn their backs on the previously beloved ‘Kiwi Buzzsaw’ and the company appears to have reacted to this negativity by giving the fans this bout against strong favourite WALTER.
Ringkampf stable member WALTER is fast becoming one of the most sought after ‘free agents’ in the world scene, WWE are reportedly interested in the Austrian powerhouse and star of German promotion wXw…these reports have since been refuted by WALTER however he was on hand during the Wrestlemania Axxess shows so a deal between the two parties may well be struck in the coming months.
Intriguingly this will be the second time that the two decorated UK scene stars will face in the coming weeks; DEFIANT Wrestling has already announced that an Internet Title bout will take place at their No Regrets PPV on April 28th.
