Promoter of Westside Xtreme Wrestling (wXw) Christian Michael Jakobi appeared during PROGRESS Wrestling’s Super Strong Style 16 event recently and challenged the reigning WWE UK Champion to a bout against the wXw World United Heavyweight Champion…Ilja Dragunov.
Dragunov became the wXw Champion during the company’s 16 Carat Gold 2018 event back in March of this year, he defeated then Champion John Klinger and WWE linked star WALTER in an incredible bout that headlined day two of the tournament. This marked the return of Dragunov to the company and he received a thunderous reception from the wXw fanbase.
Jakobi appeared at this past Sunday’s Chapter 69 event and again challenged Pete Dunne to a match against his World Champion…except this time he wasn’t alone. Ilja Dragunov appeared in front of the PROGRESS fans to a rapturous reception and it appears as though this match will be happening when PROGRESS head to Wembley Arena in September.
Check out the huge reaction the wXw Champion received via the tweet below:
