NXT UK's Ilja Dragunov to face Cara Noir at PROGRESS 10th Anniversary Show

The anniversary event is taking place on Friday, March 25.

An NXT UK star is headed to PROGRESS Wrestling for the promotion's 10th Anniversary Show.

It was announced today that Ilja Dragunov vs. Cara Noir will take place at PROGRESS Wrestling's 10th Anniversary Show on Friday, March 25. The event, which is PROGRESS Chapter 131, is taking place at The Garage in London, England.

Earlier this month, Dragunov returned to PROGRESS to confront Cara Noir at Chapter 128. The confrontation took place after Cara Noir retained the PROGRESS World Championship against Dean Allmark.

Cara Noir has been PROGRESS World Champion since January 2020. He's set to defend the title against Shane "Swerve" Strickland at Chapter 129 this Sunday.

PROGRESS has also announced that Warren Banks will be getting a PROGRESS World title shot at the 10th Anniversary Show, which indicates that Cara Noir would be wrestling twice if he's still champion.

Dragunov has held the NXT United Kingdom Championship since winning the title from WALTER at TakeOver 36 last August.

Dragunov vs. Cara Noir isn't currently announced as being a title match.

At the end of December, it was revealed that PROGRESS Wrestling had been sold to Lee McAteer and Martyn Best. McAteer and Best are associate directors of English Football League Two soccer team Tranmere Rovers.

PROGRESS shows are uploaded to Peacock/WWE Network and Demand PROGRESS.
