Mark Andrews vs Dave Mastiff vs Jack Sexsmith vs Zack Gibson vs Trent Seven vs Marty Scurll vs Nathan Cruz vs Sebastian

Thunderbastard Match

01/29/2017

Electric Ballroom, Camden, Greater London, England, United Kingdom

(reviewed 09/25/2017) The (almost) best and worst of PROGRESS in one match. Here we get wonderful moments like Sexsmith immediately eliminating Sebastian, Eaver standing up to Sebastian and coldcocking him, and Gibson’s entire presence in the match and then on the other end of the spectrum we’ve got the height of Scurll’s nonsensical antics, heels inexplicably hating other heels (Scurll & Seven hating Sebastian, not the Origin schism which is well established), more predatory sexual stuff from Sexsmith, and some of the worst incessant chanting I’ve heard to date. Real mixed bag here. There’s also precious little wrestling in it until the end, in which the match slows down considerably and we almost get too much wrestling, though it’s good stuff because Andrews and Gibson are pretty damn good wrestlers. Still, it’s too little (or too much, rather) too late, as this is a match that’s all over the place quality-wise. If you’re already a big PROGRESS fan, I’m sure it’s a whale of a time, but if you’re anything else it comes across as something of a muddled, self-aware mess with a few shining moments.
