Why was Rampage released from WWE developmental? I didn't know who he was at the time, but after seeing (and being highly impressed) him during the second series of TNA Boot Camp, I can't believe they didn't want to keep him there. Was it his decision at all?

Yeah he asked for his release.

No guarantees, but there will probably be more tickets released by PROGRESS out of the venue's allocation imminently.

Is Matt Riddle over here this weekend? Could make a more than worthy main event open challenger for Rampage Brown.

Not sure about that, but I have noticed he's in the UK with PCW the day before SSS16. Would love for him to be in that this year

 

 

PCW also have a show (in Preston) the next day (which clashes with the first day of SSS16), so he could well be at that one.  That being said, there's SSS16 is obviously a 3-day tournament this year, so it might be the case that PROGRESS first round matches could be split across the first 2 days (though with the timings they've announced, it seems more likely they'll do Rd 1 Saturday, Quarters on Sunday and Semis and Final on Monday).

 

As I understand it, that's the plan. One of the main motivations of the third day was to stop the guys having to wrestle three times in one day.

The last few progress shows since brixton have all been really good. I've watched chapter 39 at least 3 times and I haven't done that with a show in years.

Ospreys turn will be really good, but begs the question of who wil go against BSS if havoc is busy with swords of Essex?

I think the thing to remember is that with BSS in WWEUK and Will with ROH and NJPW, they aren't likely to all be available for every show. So Havoc just feuds with ALL THE HEELS. 


In Topic: Today's Observer: WWE vs ITV / possibility of UK-only Network show

It surprises me that it's in the Scum though. You would have thought that a paper owned by the company that shows WWE on its TV platform would ignore what WWE obviously sees as competition.

If ITV have bunged them some money to run a double page spread they're not going to turn it down. The Sun's hemorrhaging money at the moment, so every little will likely help. 

 

Unless it was explicitly an advert, ITV can't have paid them for it.
