PROGRESS News: Updated Lineups For This Weekend’s PROGRESS Chapters 80 & 81



PROGRESS Wrestling
A look at the cards for this weekend’s PROGRESS Chapters 80 & 81!

While next week and weekend will be loaded with wrestling between MLW, Ring Of Honor and WWE, this weekend will be a big one for PROGRESS Wrestling as they invade Manchester for Chapter 80: Gods and Monsters on Saturday, followed by Sheffield on Sunday for Chapter 81: Pour Some PROGRESS On Me.

With PROGRESS being among the promotions that WWE’s NXT UK talents are not restricted from as the two companies have worked together now for some time, the cards for both shows feature a number of NXT UK’s top Superstars.

Also of note if you remember, a scheduled match between NXT’s Street Profits and IMPACT Wrestling’s LAX was altered after IMPACT pulled LAX, reportedly not wanting one of their top talents to lost to WWE contracted performers (see that story here). Interestingly enough, Sunday’s Chapter 81 is set to feature IMPACT Wrestling’s Jordynne Grace taking on NXT UK’s Toni Storm. As of now, that match is still set, despite recent reports that was part of WWE’s restrictions in their new, recently handed out NXT UK contracts (for more on that, go here).

Here’s a look at the lineups for both of PROGRESS’ events this weekend. Chapter 80 is sold out, however limited tickets are still available for Chapter 81 in Sheffield at this link:

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle (2/18/19)

Start your Monday off with comments on news regarding Chris Jericho/IMPACT, AEW Ticket Sales, Becky Lynch and more!



ALL IN Chris Jericho

Jason shuffles into Monday with the Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle! Today we take a look at news on Chris Jericho/IMPACT, AEW Ticket Sales, Becky Lynch, and more!

More On IMPACT Offer To Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho was recently a guest on Wrestling Observer Radio, and during the broadcast he discussed the offer that IMPACT wrestling made to him a few months ago: (credit to Fightful for the transcription below)

“In my mind, from a pure business standpoint, I’m worth as much as Brock Lesnar to WWE as far as what I bring to the table. That’s the watermark that I had. For me to go back to Vince, I want that kind of a deal. When I was starting to talk with Tony (Khan) and New Japan and Impact as well– Impact offered me a hell of a deal for a four match series. We’re talking mid-seven figures. They have some cash as well.”

AEW Double Or Nothing Ticket Sale Notes

Cody Rhodes took to Twitter a few days ago and provided some interesting stats on ticket sales for AEW Double Or Nothing:

Why The Women Didn’t Headline Elimination Chamber

Initially, it was thought that the historic Women’s Tag Team Championship match would headline the Elimination Chamber pay per view, however, according to Fightful, Vince McMahon made the change to swap the match out with the men’s Elimination Chamber match. McMahon felt the women’s match would get the reaction desired to close out the show.

Becky Lynch Re-Injures Knee At Live Event

While it appears to be only in storyline, Becky Lynch appeared to re-injure her knee after attempting to attach Charlotte Flair at a house show Saturday evening.

WWE Elimination Chamber Results: WWE Championship Match

Was Daniel Bryan able to walk out of WWE Elimination Chamber still BOTH the Planet’s and WWE Champion?



WWE Elimination Chamber WWE Championship Match

Six men fought it out in the main event of WWE Elimination Chamber for The New Daniel Bryan’s WWE Championship. Did the Planet’s Champion retain?

The six men involved were:

  • Kofi Kingston (with Big E and Xavier Woods, starting in the near right pod)
  • Jeff Hardy (starting in the far right pod)
  • Randy Orton (starting in the near left pod)
  • AJ Styles (starting in the near left pod)
  • Samoa Joe (starting in the ring)
  • WWE Champion Daniel Bryan (with Eric Rowan, starting in the ring)

Kofi Kingston was THE fan’s favorite headed into this match. But he started in a pod, as the first two men in the match were Samoa Joe and WWE Champion Daniel Bryan (the Ring Of Honor fan in me is happy).

Order of events:

  • Daniel Bryan and Samoa Joe started the match at 0:00
  • Kofi Kingston entered the Chamber at 5:16
  • AJ Styles entered the Chamber at 10:27
  • AJ Styles eliminated Samoe Joe at 14:34
  • Jeff Hardy entered the Chamber at 15:14
  • Daniel Bryan eliminated Jeff Hardy at 17:58
  • Randy Orton entered the Chamber at 19:57
  • Randy Orton eliminated AJ Styles at 22:21
  • Kofi Kingston eliminated Randy Orton at 24:01
  • The final two men in the match were WWE Champion Daniel Bryan and Kofi Kingston
  • Daniel Bryan pinned Kofi Kingston at 36:35 to retain the WWE Championship

Daniel Bryan last eliminated Kofi Kingston to win the Elimination Chamber match and retain the WWE Championship
