At PROGRESS we are big believers in pushing new British talent. With that in mind, every card will play host to matches that go towards naming our annual NATURAL PROGRESSION tournament winner.
Each year, the Natural Progression Series (NPS) winner will receive a title shot, the winner’s trophy and the chance to reinstate one of the losing NPS competitors from that year to enter the tournament again the following year.
The FIRST EVER NATURAL PROGRESSION SERIES WINNER is the 2013 tournament champion “WHITE LIGHTING” MARK ANDREWS. Crowned at CHAPTER TEN, he cashed in his title shot immediately to become PROGRESS champion, defeating RAMPAGE BROWN. He also chose to reinstate WILL OSPREAY for the 2014 tournament.
The first 2014 NATURAL PROGRESSION SERIES quarter final match will take place at CHAPTER ELEVEN, with the winner being crowned at the last show of 2014, CHAPTER SIXTEEN.
The first quarter final has already taken place, with “FLASH” MORGAN WEBSTER defeating JOSH BODOM at CHAPTER ELEVEN.
The second quarter final will take place at CHAPTER TWELVE, with the two competitors to be named in the coming weeks.
For historical purposes, here are the 2013 NPS RESULTS:
