PROGRESS Wrestling Shutting Down Until Changes Are Made

PROGRESS Wrestling made structural changes on Monday morning, and on Monday evening they are taking even more action.

PROGRESS announced that the company will shut down until they are happy with the changes they have made, saying they will pioneer the change that the industry needs.

Burn It Down. Build It Back Up. Believe In Change.
The last 24 hours have been an eye-opener. Words are not enough. With that in mind, we will build this from the ground back up. We're shutting everything down, until we're happy enough with the changes that we make, to re-open. We will be the pioneer for change that this industry needs at this moment.

Our first priority is the safeguarding of talent, crew and fans. We are talking with the police and are close to finalising something that we are super proud of, and that we can share across every promotion.

We know people are keen to know the revamped company structure. Vicky, Lucy, Michael and James are in control of every single element; there is no involvement from anyone else. Jon remains the owner of PROGRESS but we have complete control of everything. Neither Glen nor Matt are involved in any capacity, financial or otherwise, nor are they returning. Jon has trusted us with this, and we applaud his bravery in both this and the health battle he finds himself in.

Starting as we mean to go on, we will be fully investigating the posts about Michael Oku that have been placed online. None of us are above the high standards we want to set, and it will be a full and in-depth investigation.

No one is above scrutiny.

Our emails will remain open: [email protected]
