PROGRESS Wrestling headed to the North of England this afternoon to the O2 Ritz in Manchester for Chapter 45: Galvanize. The show started with British Strong Style putting their PROGRESS Tag Titles on the line against the South Pacific Power Trip. Elsewhere on the card, El Ligero took on Zack Gibson, Mark Andrews battled Will Ospreay, and Flash Morgan Webster tangled with Nathan Cruz.
The show was built largely around the main event which pitted PROGRESS World Champion Pete Dunne against former Champion Jimmy Havoc in a Death Match. Havoc won his shot at the belt during Chapter 44, and during today’s show, he attacked Ospreay and British Strong Style after their respective bouts in a bid to stop them interfering in the main event.
