M'eh, that's PROGRESS. British wrestling as a whole was doing just fine before then and that was down to a lot of other people.
I'm sorry but when people talk about the resurgence of British wrestling they won't be talking about Jimmy fucking Havoc.

I'm sure SBA has me on ignore but I'm highlighting the parts here that are laughably wrong.

Like it or not, Progress and the Havoc/Ospreay saga are a massive reason why the UK scene exploded like it did.

Great news on the reschedule. They might stand a chance of being a WWE competitor again.

How does that work?

I mean, TNA were doing bigger numbers than WWE when they were on challenge, and that's why fox paid so much money for impact.....

I don't have you on ignore, champ.

If I did I wouldn't have the pleasure of seeing you desperately trying to point score at my expense and be able to tell you to go fuck yourself.

Hey, Accident Prone - go fuck yourself.

It means that now he no longer has to actually support anything, he's willing to provide his support.

Also because everyone shares the same sense of entitlement, apparently, now AEW stand a chance.

Its obvious. You thought AEW would be big with inaccessible TV to potential new wrestling fans?

Absolutely. I'm not a PROGRESS guy - I've never been to one of their shows, have been pretty critical of them over the years, and generally recognise that they're not really my thing, so this isn't me as one of their "Ultras" giving them way more credit than they're due - but you can't deny the impact they had on the UK scene.

If nothing else, pre-PROGRESS, London didn't have a wrestling scene to speak of. The previous British wrestling "boom" barely broke into London, in the late '00s you could literally count the number of documented shows in London by British companies on your fingers. PROGRESS were the first promotion to regularly run central London, and laid the groundwork for a scene where, most months, you're pretty spoiled for choice. PROGRESS aren't the be all and end all, but you don't have the latest British wrestling boom without the emergence of London as a viable scene, and you don't get the emergence of the London scene without PROGRESS. The Havoc/Ospreay angle was a huge part of their success, and bought them a lot of goodwill as "good storytellers" long after their booking stopped warranting it, and it was largely the brainchild of Jimmy Havoc and Jim Smallman.

I‚Äôm not sure there were any ‚Äúpotential new wrestling fans‚ÄĚ crying about the¬†timeslot being inaccessible before. ūüėÜ But how exactly does being on ITV player earlier¬†suddenly position AEW¬†as challengers to WWE?
