Jinny - PROGRESS Wrestling

The Journey

As the first female graduate of PROGRESS’s wrestling school, Jinny quickly established herself as a formidable competitor with a character that combined high fashion with ruthless aggression. Her career in PROGRESS is marked by several key accomplishments and memorable matches.

Jinny’s rise to prominence in PROGRESS began with her first major title win on May 25, 2018, at Chapter 69, where she defeated Toni Storm to capture the PROGRESS Women’s Championship. This victory solidified her position as a top competitor in the women’s division. Jinny’s reign as champion saw her defend the title successfully against a variety of formidable opponents, including Dakota Kai at Chapter 70 and Millie McKenzie at Chapter 75​​.

Her ability to maintain her championship against such high-caliber talent showcased her resilience and in-ring prowess.

In addition to her title defences, Jinny’s alliances and rivalries added depth to her character. She formed the faction known as the “House of Couture,” which included wrestlers like Nina Samuels and Chakara.

This group was central to several storylines, emphasizing Jinny’s influence and leadership within the promotion. Her feud with Laura Di Matteo was particularly notable, as it highlighted a personal and intense rivalry that captivated audiences​.

Jinny’s in-ring style was characterized by a blend of technical skill and brutal strikes, often employing moves like the middle-rope X-Factor and ripcord clothesline to great effect. Her matches were frequently hard-hitting and showcased her ability to adapt to different opponents’ styles.

Noteworthy matches include her battles against Jordynne Grace, where Jinny successfully defended her title in a four-way match at Chapter 76​.

Beyond her in-ring accomplishments, Jinny’s character work as “The Fashionista” made her stand out. Her posh and domineering persona, combined with her stylish ring attire, created a unique and memorable character that resonated with fans. This character work was integral to her storylines and helped elevate her matches and feuds.

Jinny’s contributions to PROGRESS Wrestling extended beyond her matches. She was a key figure in the women’s division, helping to elevate it to new heights and setting a standard for future competitors. Her departure from PROGRESS and eventual retirement in 2023 due to injury marked the end of an era, but her legacy as a trailblazer in the UK independent wrestling scene remains impactful​.
