PROGRESS Wrestling has shared a Kickstarter to get a documentary made about their promotion. It's the #1 independant promotion in the UK via promoters, wrestlers, and the fans.
They shared the following about the kickstarter:
THIS.IS.PROGRESS. is a feature-length documentary that charts PROGRESS Wrestling's ascension to the heady heights of the UK independent wrestling scene. The film dissects what makes them, their wrestlers and the fans stand out as some of the most exciting and unique in the world
Who the hell is PROGRESS anyway, you maybe wondering.
In 2011 comedy agent, Jon Briley and stand-up comedian Jim Smallman, decided to take their love of professional wrestling one step further by putting on their own independent wrestling show in London. They were told professional wrestling didn't work in London, but their first show, ‘Chapter 1 - In the Beginning’ was a sell out, they never looked back.
After that first show, actor Glen Joseph came on board as PROGRESS' third co-owner. Little did the three friends know that from humble beginnings PROGRESS would go from strength-to-strength. Now they consistently sell out 700 capacity shows in minutes. Their on-demand service has thousands of subscribers and they promote events across the UK and internationally. In September 2016, PROGRESS achieved its biggest success to date when they sold out London's historic Brixton Academy. 'Chapter 36: We're Gonna Need A Bigger Room...Again', was the biggest independent wrestling show held in the UK for a decade.
They also shared a video for the fans as well on the page, which I suggest you guys also check out and watch.
