Anthony Ogogo To Return To PROGRESS Wrestling At Super Strong Style 16 This Sunday

3rd June, 2022 (London, England): This weekend sees PROGRESS Wrestling host their flagship Super Strong Style 16 event in Camden, London and it was announced today that Olympic Bronze Medalist, The Guv’nor, Anthony Ogogo will be making a surprise return to PROGRESS at Sunday’s final Super Strong Style 16 event.

Ogogo, one of the fastest-rising British stars in the US, made a shock PROGRESS debut in January when he marched into the Electric Ballroom to the surprise of a sell-out crowd to defeat Hari Singh at the first PROGRESS chapter since the return of fans post-lockdown.

Wrestling fans believed this was a one-off appearance from the former Strictly Come Dancing competitor but during today’s event, a video message was played to the crowd, sent directly from Beverly Hills, California to announce that Ogogo was coming back to PROGRESS. The Guv’nor declared his intention to test himself in the Ballroom once again, on the weekend that Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her Platinum Jubilee in the UK.

Whilst Ogogo’s opponent has not yet been confirmed, PROGRESS management will not be short of options, with many of the UK’s finest keen to test themselves against the cocky Olympian.

Super Strong Style 16 tickets are still on sale for the Saturday and Sunday events (start time 2.30pm) from The event will host a 16-man tournament – including former WWE star John Morrison wrestling as Johnny PROGRESS – that will crown its winner the new PROGRESS Wrestling World Champion.

Other key matches over the weekend include Kanji challenging Impact Wrestling Knockout Gisele Shaw in a 2-out-of-3 falls bout for the PROGRESS Women’s Championship. The tag team championships will also be up for grabs as champions The 0121 defend against Sunshine Machine and Smokin’ Aces in a triple threat ladder match.

The match that many long-time PROGRESS fans are most looking forward to sees former PROGRESS World Champion Cara Noir face his bitter rival Spike Trivet in an I Quit match with the loser forced to leave the company.
