SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Progress Wrestling has announced a major wrestling show next to WWE’s return to stadiums in the United Kingdom on September 3. This week, WWE announced that they would return to the UK for a stadium show at Principality Stadium in Wales.
“As soon as we saw that WWE were making Cardiff their destination for a major stadium show, we knew that Progress had to be part of this unique occasion,” said Progress co-owner Lee McAteer. “This will be the biggest weekend on these shores since Summerslam 1992 at Wembley Stadium, and we want to show all the fans who will be in Cardiff exactly why progress remains the number one wrestling brand in the UK.”
“There is nothing quite like a British wrestling audience,” said Martyn Best, Progress co-owner, “Our association with WWE gives us the opportunity to highlight the best of British Wrestling. Our Progress fans, and British and world-wide wrestling fans, can expect to see something really special this weekend.”
The Progress event will take place on Sunday September 4. Tickets for that event are on-sale now.
“Chapter 140: Wrestling. Golf. Madrid. In That Order’ will be a perfect way to compliment a special occasion. It will take place at Tramshed, less than half a mile from The Principality, formerly known as The Millennium Stadium.”
Old Progress content can be viewed on the WWE streaming portion of NBC’s Peacock. WWE’s UK return broke the company record for the most pre-sale ticket registrations for any event in the history of the company, including WrestleMania.
Matches have not yet been announced for WWE in Wales.
