Preview: PROGRESS Chapter 103 Beer Snake City (2/23/20)

PROGRESS Wrestling makes it’s way back to the Electric Ballroom for PROGRESS Chapter 103 Beer Snake City which features the unlikely teaming of Toni Storm and Jinny taking on the Medusa Complex.  There is also Proteus and PROGRESS title defenses on what looks to be a loaded show.

Ilja Dragunov vs Malik

Chapter 103 Beer Snake City

Ilja Dragunov is just kind of there in PROGRESS right now.  After putting over Cara Noir and Mark Andrews he feels like a jobber to the stars that’s just on the show to have good matches.  Here he’ll be tasked with allowing Malik to show off and hopefully get himself over in defeat.  While Dragunov isn’t in any major story he is still a good measuring stick and that’s a good role for him.

Gisele Shaw vs Chakara

A battle for positioning in the women’s division here between the returning Chakara and Gisele Shaw.  Chakara is most known in PROGRESS for her part in the short-lived House Of Couture but has been impressive in her appearances all over the UK with her charisma really shining through.  Shaw, the likely winner, has become one of the biggest women’s stars in the UK over the past few months.  She’s captured gold in RevPro, EVE, and become a fan favorite in PROGRESS and Over The Top (OTT) Wrestling.  With the women’s division aiming to become a focus of PROGRESS in 2020 matches like this are great for building momentum

More Than Hype (LJ Cleary, Darren Kearney & Nathan Martin) vs Anti Fun Police (Chief Deputy Dunn & Los Federales Santos Jr) & WALTER

Chapter 103 Beer Snake City

This was originally meant to feature Travis Banks teaming with the Anti Fun Police.  Banks pulled out of the show and was replaced by WALTER, who is making his first appearance since losing the PROGRESS title months ago.  This is the most PROGRESS match you could think off but god damn it when Nathan Martin gets his skin chopped off by WALTER it’ll all be worth it.

Jinny & Toni Storm vs Medusa Complex

Toni Storm and Jinny are long time rivals who have had many a battle over the PROGRESS Women’s Championship.  Now though they must unite against the newest threat in PROGRESS, the Medusa Complex.  The team of Millie McKenzie and Charli Evans have been all over the world capturing tag team gold for Sendai Girls in Japan and are the current EVE tag team champions.  Millie and Charli are dangerous individuals, together they’re unstoppable, Toni and Jinny have their work cut out for them here.

PROGRESS Tag Team Championships: Scotty Davis & Jordan Devlin (C) vs Workhorsemen (JD Drake & Anthony Henry)

Chapter 103 Beer Snake City

Davis and Devlin continue their run as tag team champions against former EVOLVE champions the Workhorsemen.  It should be a fun match but hopefully, Devlin and Davis get a story/feud soon

PROGRESS Proteus Championship: Paul Robinson (C) vs Kyle Fletcher

Robinson’s run as Proteus champion has seen him go through some great competitors.  At Chapter 103 he faces his toughest task to date in Kyle Fletcher.  While Robinson’s reign has done the job in establishing the belt it’s about time for a change and Fletcher is someone that could do with some direction in a post-Aussie Open world.

PROGRESS World Championship: Cara Noir (C) vs Mark Andrews

Chapter 103 Beer Snake City

Back when Eddie Dennis vacated the PROGRESS title he attempted to hand it over to his friend Mark Andrews.  That idea didn’t fly with PROGRESS management and Cara Noir ended that night as the PROGRESS Champion.  Andrews feels he should be the champion and at Chapter 103 he will get the opportunity to win the title he believes is his.
