Gene Munny debuted in PROGRESS Wrestling in 2019 when he wrestled in the Natural Progression Series before the very next night competing in the bonkers PROTEUS Title battle royal at Alexandra Palace.
His last appearance in front of fans was the equally crazy reverse battle royal at Unboxing, another showcase for the zany and creative antics Gene brings to a live crowd.
During the Peckham era, Gene was an almost ever present on the shows and despite a lack of a live crowd, his charisma shone through and it was no surprise when they did return he was the first out of the curtain.
His connection with the PROGRESS fans is genuine and heartfelt and a big reason he was entered into the Super Strong Style 16 tournament – where both he and Warren Banks ended the 3 day tournament getting a huge round of applause for their gallant efforts.
He soon found himself wrestling in another insane match – Super Mob Smash XII – a gimmick that by his own admission he hated with every inch of his being.
He would not be deterred though and managed to earn a PROGRESS Men’s World Championship match against Spike Trivet and most recently a Tag Title shot with Connor Mills that ended in a controversial defeat.
PROGRESS fans love that Damn Dirty Dog and we do too. We can’t wait to see what his future holds with us.
PROGRESS Wrestling tickets are available for all future shows via the dice app.
