On Sunday September 30th, 2018, PROGRESS Wrestling hold their annual big show and this year they go bigger than they, or any other independent wrestling company has gone in England. This show, Hello Wembley, has been announced and built up for over one year as it was announced on September 10th, 2017 at the Ally Pally show, Chapter 55: Chase The Sun.
The Pre Show Battle Royal
This was a fun battle royal that got the crowd going. You can watch this for free on the PROGRESS Wrestling Facebook Page. Winner: Chuck Mambo.
The band, WARS played in the show open, with a video package of the build to the show.
The show opened with Jim Smallman giving his usual speech to the fans in Wembley Arena. This is always good and a perfect way to open a PROGRESS Wrestling show.
Matt Riddle vs Mark Haskins W/ Vicky Haskins
- This started very even with the crowd, loud and split. The match built with intensity and had some great nearfalls. At one point, Riddle hit a very nice Fisherman’s Buster then a Gotch-Style Tombstone for a nearfall but in the end, Mark Haskins stopped Matt Riddle in his final independent wrestling show before heading to WWE. Winner: Mark Haskins.
PROGRESS Women’s World Title match – Millie McKenzie vs Toni Storm vs Jinny(c)
- This was a fun three-way with a group of girls by ringside with Jinny, I didn’t catch their names. The match ended with an angle when Jinny faced off with Toni Storm and Jinny’s girls got in the ring, Toni had two girls that got in to help, Candy Floss and Laura DiMatteo but Laura turned on both Toni and Candy Floss causing Jinny to pin Toni to retain. Winner: Jinny.
