The promotion will be teaming up once again with EVOLVE and WWN for the show, and from what we know now, it looks like WWN might be streaming the show live on their service. PROGRESS has already announced that the show will be available on their VOD service about a week after it happens.
There’s no full card for the show as of yet, but they have announced that PROGRESS Champion (and new WWE UK Champion) Pete Dunne will be on the card, as well as PROGRESS Tag Team Champions Tyler Bate and Trent Seven.
CMLL Fires Several Top Stars
Things aren’t looking good on the lucha libre front down in Mexico. CMLL released an official statement today announcing that they had fired top stars La Mascara, Maximo Sexy, and Bobby Villa. The firings stem from an incident this past weekend where Mascara and Maximo Sexy basically destroyed Ultimo Guerrero’s car in the Arena Mexico parking lot this past Friday evening. The reason for Villa’s firing was not given.
Both La Mascara and Maximo Sexy have family in AAA, CMLL’s top competitor, so the men could easily end up working there in the near future.
