Download Festival 2015 welcomes Progress Wrestling

Progress Wrestling will make its Donington debut this summer, with organisers dubbing it a new era for on-site festival entertainment.

They’re not wrong!

Just when we thought Download couldn’t get any more badass, they’ve gone and thrown a bunch of rebellious wrestlers into the mix.

Progress Wrestling, as co-creator Jim Smallman recently explained, is ‘part punk gig, part away end at a football match’.

The Download Dog made his appearance at Progress’ blockbuster event, Progresslemania, last weekend (22 March); where he invited the entire roster to Donington this summer.

That’s all except Progress champion Jimmy Havoc, who was left less than impressed when the Download Dog didn’t extend the invite his way. Setting up the drama for June, fans can expect this feud to continue in the Donington ring.
