It seems fitting to called it a handicapped match considering Abdullah is in it.

I really hope WWE cuts a deal like that in Japan and sends back Hideo Itami so he stops getting injured in freak accidents in house shows.

Are there any other major storylines I should look for? I'm starting with Jimmy Havoc vs the whole goddamn company.

If you're looking to get caught up quickly, Chapter 39 is a great place to start. Chapter 28 also has the beginnings of a lot of feuds, including Tommy End vs Marty Scurll and the start of what would eventually become British Strong Style.

But if you have the time and inclination, I would definitely start with the Havoc storyline and work your way to the present. PROGRESS's long-term storytelling is second to none.

Are the early shows worth watching?

I was going to start from Chapter 1 and just go through it all but if it's all meh before Chapter 28, I'll just start there.

Oh, they are all totally worth watching, especially because they start building storylines in those early chapters (Havoc, Ospreay, Scurll et al.) that eventually pay off amazingly. The rise of Jimmy Havoc from deathmatch underdog to the most hated wrestler in Britain is probably the best story I've seen in indie wrestling. I just know it was daunting for me as a new fan to hammer through 50+ hours of wrestling to get caught up with what's going on at the moment. I started with Chapter 20 and kept going forward, but I would really love to go back and see those builds.

They start running shows at the Electric Ballroom, their current London home, at Chapter 12 and go from one taped commentator to two live ones at Chapter 20 if you're a bit of a production snob like I am. If you watch this promo package on Havoc's turn and start with Chapter 12, you should be good to go storyline-wise.

rovert when people on Twitter ask you to be more specific with poo poo you're dropping hints about you wave them off and say "I'm not a journalist" but when a journalist releases information you chastise them for not asking permission? Like, do you understand how journalism works or is this just another one of your things where other people are held to different standards than you

What does that got to do with basic courtesy? It is doubtful she's past the first trimester even.

Anyway my DMs have been lighting up about promoters in the UK who have had WWE UK pulled from their shows in the last 24 hours. Expect more cancellation announcements tomorrow.
