Last two matches are Mark Andrews vs. Morgan Webster in a meeting of two Natural Progression Series winners, and Pete Dunne & Trent Seven vs. David Starr & Matt Riddle.

PROGRESS announced on Wednesday that Dahlia Black will join the commentary team in a near full time basis as of the March Ballroom show.

What a show that was today. ZSJ V Bate was a genuine moty contender so far and Walter v Davis was beyond what I could describe. Just an utter beating that was beyond anything I've ever seen

Fun show that had potential to beat the infamous Chapter 45 as Manchester's best PROGRESS show but kind of fell away towards the end.

The crowd were pretty into it. I certainly wasn't. He's a shit wrestler with an even worse "gimmick" Also not sure how he gets away with just grabbing people's cocks and that's considered ok in this day and age

I think it is extremely unfair on him to say he can't wrestle for shit. He has improved alot and had a very good 2017 and even moved to Wolverhampton to train full time with Travis Banks.

The fans reacted well to it. He is very popular with a large part of the fanbase. The hardcore work rate fans like me were disappointed mainly because I doubt PROGRESS could carry a no.1 contender for 3-4 months till Wembley after last year. I feel Sexsmith would be a great main event in Camden but it will be a rare occasion in PROGRESS to judge if someone is a draw or not as they have only sold half the tickets to the Manchester show and Sexsmith is the only thing announced.

Maybe I was a little harsh there, he has definitely improved a lot over the past year. I think he's just not for me, I don't get behind him like a lot of others do so his matches end up lacking for me. I just don't really take him seriously as a challenger. I mean, I'll be at the show so he'll have every opportunity to change my mind on this one.

Twitter poll going on at the moment to decide if Riddle or Jonah Rock will be Travis Banks' next challenger.

This seems to indicate to me that either the Atlas Division or (hopefully) the Women's Division is getting the Thunderbastard Match.

Riddle won... I can only put that down to more fans not knowing who Rock is.

Rock will have his match announced tonight.

Jonah Rock will face Zack Sabre Jr. - they've had great matches in NOAH, PWG and in Australia, this should be no exception.
