I actually thought 64 was the better top to bottom show I’m a while. Really liked the Thunderbastard, Mathew/Davis and Rock/Sabre

I think that the reason I am so low on the show is because I though Davis vs Mayhew and Rock vs ZSJ were just good matches rather than great. Thunderbastard was an ok match but I enjoyed the Andrews-Dennis feud and the full blown return of dickhead TK.

Yeh I thought ZSJ v Jonah was decent but never got great. The Andrews v Dennis stuff was booked perfectly though

Two more Chapter 65 matches - Danny Duggan vs. Danny Jones in the last NPS Quarter Final, and a four way with Chakara, Millie McKenzie, the returning Session Moth Martina (first appearance since Chapter 48) and the debuting Killer Kelly.

The full PROGRESS roster for the Australian tour are Travis Banks (appearing in Perth and Sydney only as he's doing an SPW show in New Zealand during the Melbourne show), Pete Dunne, Trent Seven, Tyler Bate, Jimmy Havoc and Toni Storm.

Tyler Bate got added to Super Strong Style 16 as well.

If you're doing a Progress show in New Orleans I'd say do the Friday rather than the Saturday as a of the wwe U.K. talent seems to only be on the Friday show.

Can anyone explain Travis Banks to me? I truly don't get it. Trent Seven, too, while you're at it, though if I squint hard enough I can at least see him as a modern-day Dick Murdoch who is good when he wants to be and trash when he doesn't. Banks is the epitome of generic kick-pad wrestler to my eye.

Trent Seven is basically the progeny of Gavin McInness and JC Ice at this point. I actually prefer him when the fans aren't expected to pretend he's better than a passable worker who can cut a promo and has strong presence. So I like him more now than ever. Banks is about as one note as it gets. He's not bad, but he's basically every guy that watched Tajiri v. Super Crazy tapes on repeat and decided to be a wrestler. Nothing about him stands out at all.

This latest show may well be the remedy you need...

Just got my ticket for my first progress show in Manchester in May. Is there usually an unofficial pre or post show meet up?

The talent are mostly freely available at their merch tables, I think PROGRESS only once did a meet and greet when they had Samoa Joe at Chapter 14.
