Pete Dunne unable to wrestle at PROGRESS US shows due to injury

After suffering an injury last night, Pete Dunne won't be able to wrestle at PROGRESS Wrestling's events in the United States this weekend.

PROGRESS co-owner Jim Smallman announced the news in a video that the company tweeted this morning, saying that Dunne received 11 stitches to his head following a match last night and isn't medically cleared to compete this weekend.

Dunne faced Darius Carter in the main event for Battle Club Pro in Brooklyn on Friday night. The match ended abruptly after Dunne got busted open, with him putting on a submission to win before quickly leaving and not being able to make it back out for an advertised in-ring meet and greet.

Smallman said that this weekend's shows will remain mostly as advertised and promised that they will still deliver. Dunne had been scheduled to defend his WWE United Kingdom Championship against Jack Gallagher in Corona, New York today before the injury.

Dunne will still be appearing at the shows despite not being able to wrestle.

PROGRESS has yet to announce a new opponent for Gallagher or any other changes to the New York show's lineup. Matches for tomorrow's event in Somerville, Massachusetts won't be revealed until after the stop in NYC.
