PROGRESS announces Matt Riddle's opponent for Wembley Arena


Matt Riddle has an opponent for his final independent wrestling match.

After Riddle appeared at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn last month, PROGRESS Wrestling announced that Riddle's final indie match would be taking place at their show at The SSE Arena, Wembley in England on September 30. Today, PROGRESS confirmed that Riddle will be facing Mark Haskins at the event.

Riddle was shown sitting in the front row at TakeOver: Brooklyn and was announced as the latest wrestler to sign with WWE. He's yet to make his NXT debut.

The Wembley Arena show is the biggest event in PROGRESS history. The main event for it was confirmed last week, with Tyler Bate defeating Haskins and becoming the next challenger for WALTER's PROGRESS Championship. Jimmy Havoc also could have challenged for the title but lost a two-out-of-three falls, no DQ match to Will Ospreay. Paul Robinson costing Havoc the match set up Havoc vs. Robinson in a no DQ match for Wembley Arena.
