PROGRESS Wrestling will soon be hosting their Super Strong Style 16 tournament. The annual 3 day event is traditionally held in May and features some of the top stars from the UK/European and International scenes. Last year saw WWE/NXT Superstar Kassius Ohno appear in standout bouts with NXT UK Superstar Tyler Bate and CCK’s Chris Brookes.
One half of the PROGRESS Wrestling Tag Team Champions Paul Robinson has declared that he wants ‘in’ on the tournament. PROGRESS recently sent out a tweet seeming to indicate that there would be an issue with the Tag Team Title bout at the upcoming ‘Breadknife’ event. That show will be taking place on March 31st from the Electric Ballroom in Camden, London. It is not yet known if this is due to a scheduling conflict. Robinson’s tag partner is Will Ospreay, a big star in NJPW and someone who the company relies on heavily. Ospreay may otherwise be occupied and they are therefore working this into a storyline. This however has not yet been confirmed. Check out the recent promo from Robinson demanding his shot in the tournament via the tweet below:

There are of course 6 more names to be confirmed, with Paul Robinson looking like he may be one of them.
