Jim confirmed it was a typo - it's just the seven.
Aye, because JJG have never dismissed something before in the Facebook group that's later turned out to be the case. I'm not sure how you typo "Please note: this is an EIGHT MATCH CARD, which means that the finish time will be closer to 8pm than 7.30pm" when all your usual shows are 7 match cards. It's not from a previous guide either so no shoddy copy/paste job at work.

They've added an in-ring segment with Sebastian, so it is effectively "8 matches" now.

Grabbed 3 front row tickets to Chapter 45, I'm bringing two friends who have never been to a live show and never watched anything other than WWE before. Pete Dunne vs. Jimmy Havoc for the title in a No DQ match will be an interesting introduction for them lol

Dahlia Black and TK Cooper mentioned on "Flash" Morgan Webster's podcast that they have to go back to New Zealand in May to renew their UK Visas, and they don't know if it will take weeks or months. That might scupper a Tag Team Title run for the SPPT or a Women's Title run for Dahlia.

There is another Ballroom show before April but yeah, seems like she'll be done at Galvanize. Shame as they could totally run her vs. KLR at Ch46 in addition to an NPS semi.

Chapter 44 was yet again another great show. Arguably the greatest first half of a show in PROGRESS history that wasn't a SSS16.

People have all kinds to say about the Eavor and Sebastian storyline, and rightly so, but fuck me that was one of the best blow off matches to a feud I have seen in years. Absolutely loved it and did not expect that performance and brutality from either of them. Eavor to me has enough credibility to enter SSS16 and Sebastian earned his spot on the roster, although the best thing for him is to disappear for a while.

Session Moth was fine, feel like she would get over much more up North in Manchester or Liverpool as they are places more similar to Dublin. Glad PROGRESS made an effort for her though. Devlin looked great and wouldn't mind seeing him as a regular, if there is space on the roster. Strickland vs Andrews was great although commentary ignored why he was pulled from a previous Manchester show on the same weekend he unceremoniously left wXw..

Manchester in two weeks looks stacked at the minute and I was out of the country when tickets came on sale so I will be hovering on Twickets for the forseeable future.

Outside of New Japan, that was probably my favourite show of the year.

Unsure if we still need spoiler tags or not, but just to be courteous...

With Devlin and Blake turning up here it got me wondering: anyone know why Tucker (from the WWE UK Tournament) seemingly hasn't been used anywhere much since? He was probably the least known entrant and had the best first round match. I was expecting him to turn up everywhere after that, but so far nothing.

I'd have to ask around about that but he doesn't live on the mainland obviously and he is knee is dodgy. The Northern Ireland scene is very small time and there's no real role models. The Irish Sea has always been this big hurdle or psychological barrier for Irish Wrestling. Some in the past would rather wrestle in places like Belgium or Scandinavia instead. I don't think UK fans fully appreciate that or that indie Wrestling only started here in 2002 and essentially collapsed in the late 00s/early 10s.
