PROGRESS Wrestling – From The Vaults:
Chapter 1: In The Beginning
Following the hugely successful launch of DEMAND PROGRESS PLUS, we are now starting a series of “FROM THE VAULTS”, which will be a regular look back on some of the significant shows that PROGRESS have presented.
What better place to start than at the beginning – with the beautifully and appropriately named:
PROGRESS Wrestling Chapter 1: In The Beginning
This was the debut event of PROGRESS Wrestling, and took place on 25th March 2012 at The Garage in Islington, Greater London, England and was attended by 323 fans.
The main event of the show was a 3-way elimination match for the first inaugural PROGRESS Men’s Championship, between Nathan Cruz, El Ligero, and Marty Scurll. Cruz won the match to become the first PROGRESS Men’s Champion.
Other notable matches on the card included:
- Will Ospreay vs. Paul Robinson
- Mark Andrews vs. Jimmy Havoc
- The London Riots vs. The Sumerian Death Squad
- Noam Dar vs. Rich Swann
The show is still talked about today and it is considered to be one of the best debuts of an independent wrestling show of all time.
