Earlier today Progress Wrestling released a statement (Click To See Statement) in response to fan questions regarding Paul Robinson’s involvement in the Progress restart this past Saturday, the statement confirmed that Paul Robinson was and is involved as an agent for chapters 104-108.
In the statement Progress also confirmed that all the performers were aware of everyone working back stage and that they were happy everyone involved had passed the vetting process.
However many fans and wrestling promotions were unimpressed with statement made by Progress Wrestling feeling as if Progress had tried to pass the blame onto the performers.
Kamikaze Pro felt that as Progress are one of the biggest promotions in England they should set a better example, noting that the only way to move forward is by starting afresh with total transparency.
Wrestle Island would also note that we cannot pass the blame onto the talent, as who would turn down an opportunity to wrestle on the WWE Network, stating that it is not up to the talent but the promotion.
Wrestler Shay Purser, a regular for ATTACK!! Pro Wrestling and Dragon Pro Wrestling, who tweeted that its not the performers and Progress need to hold themselves accountable.
British Wrestler Lucia Lee, asked fans to take into consideration that the performers may not have even been aware of the allegation against Paul Robinson.
Many fans were truly angry with the response from Progress some even thinking the company was aware and were protecting Paul Robinson, with some even calling for the company to close it doors for good.
What do you make of the current situation regarding Progress Wrestling? How do you think Progress should progress moving forward?
