WWE Global Cruiserweight announcement, location set for 2 matches

The London-based Progress Wrestling promotion has reached a deal of sorts to work with World Wrestling Entertainment with the announcement at their show today that two of the qualifying matches for the Global Cruiserweight series would take place on the 4/24 Progress show.

Progress founder Jim Smallman made the announcement of the partnership on Sunday afternoon at the company's show at the Electric Ballroom in north London.  His announcement confirmed a report on the Gorilla Position podcast and talkSPORT that Progress was the leading contender to have matches in the tournament.

While no names were mentioned as participating, a story on the show listed Kent-born regular Zack Sabre Jr., Will Ospreay and Marty Scurll who are three of the top stars with the group, although noted Ospreay, who debuts in two weeks for New Japan Pro Wrestling, may not be politically able to participate while keeping his New Japan commitments.
