Yeah that will be great. I was pissed about the venue change but this more than makes up for it.

Ok. Let's see if I have this right.

At Wembley, there will be a tag team Thunderbastard match for the titles (last Thunderbastard for a while, so sayeth Smallman). The teams in it are:

1) The Grizzled Young Vets
2) Aussie Open
3) Mayhew & Mills
4) The Anti-Fun Police (Dunne & Federales)
5) CCK
6) Mark Haskins & Flash Morgan Webster
7) either the South Pacific Power Trip or Sexy Starr (depending on who loses the Banks/Sexsmith World Title match on Sunday)

The order of the Thunderbastard will be determined over the summer by a round robin series. Each team will face each other, and the team with the most wins over the series enters the Wembley Thunderbastard last. The team with the most losses enters first.

Every match the Vets have in this tournament will be for the tag team titles as long as they have them.

Man, this was needlessly complex.

I don't disagree. Have the Vets just defend in the match as the first participants and have the rest do a round robin for the order of entry.

Aussie Open vs Mayhew & Mills starts the tournament, and rounds out Sunday's card.

Amazing production here - puts Jinny over huge as the biggest threat yet to Toni Storm's title reign, and Jinny makes sure to put Toni over as a huge deal for her to defeat. Have a suspicion it'll be the main event on Sunday, and Jinny may well win the title.

PROGRESS should really consider making the Victoria Warehouse their permanent home in Manchester. Queuing was efficient, alcohol prices are cheaper, and it may be cheaper to rent than the O2 Ritz. Plus with the August show needing to be rescheduled because of the US tour, I'd use that as the excuse to build up to the return here later this year.

Yep, think there were around 1,200 there, but I'm not good at head counting. Looked way more than the O2 Ritz.

I can't wait to hear who is going to be on the US tour. Got my ticket for the Seattle date.

PROGRESS finally offered a voluntary show without commentary, not counting the New Orleans shows where there was an error with the commentary files - they felt a lot of people probably wouldn't like the commentary for the 1978 show (Chapter 70), so they've provided two files, one with commentary, one without.

Zack Sabre Jr. is OUT of Wembley Arena due to New Japan commitments (just like Ospreay) - now anyone who wins three singles matches in a row between Chapter 74 and Chapter 75 (including the US Tour) will get a title shot in the main event. The exceptions are Pete Dunne, Ilja Dragunov, the Thunderbastard entrants and the Women's Division, as well as the existing champion.

It's not their fault, and it is still ways away, but Wembley was a show I was really excited about, now not so much. We'll see what they do to make up for the loses.

PROGRESS have just recently released shows from Australia in conjunction with promotions like Explosive Pro Wrestling, Melbourne City Wrestling & Pro Wrestling Australia. Just mentioning it because I'm VOW's resident Australia writer & they would be interesting to watch.
