Will Ospreay and Paul Robinson Are Returning To PROGRESS/TNT Extreme Wrestling

The Swords of Essex are making a comeback to PROGRESS and TNT Extreme Wrestling.

Will Ospreay and Paul Robinson, also known as the Swords of Essex, have returned to PROGRESS and TNT Extreme Wrestling after a “comprehensive investigation.” The partnership, as well as the individual competitors, will be welcomed back to both promotions, according to the release.

PROGRESS released the following :

Will Ospreay and Paul Robinson, also known as the Swords of Essex, will be returning to PROGRESS Wrestling and TNT Extreme Wrestling.

After a comprehensive investigation in which both talent complied with all requests and after taking on board all feedback internally, both TNT Extreme Wrestling and PROGRESS Wrestling now look forward to welcoming back both talent as a team or as individuals to each respective promotion.

Both Ospreay and Robinson have been embroiled in controversy; PROGRESS stated that they would be parting ways with Robinson in 2021, and he had previously been identified in the #SpeakingOut movement. Robinson issued a statement in reaction to the claims at the time.

Since 2019, Ospreay has not fought for PROGRESS. Previous reports stated that Ospreay was at least largely responsible for Pollyanna’s exile from wrestling, which he rejected. PROGRESS also apologized to Pollyanna for the company’s shortcomings.

In a tweet, Ospreay expressed his delight at being able to set aside any difficulties with PROGRESS and thanked everyone involved for their help. Ospreay then expressed his enthusiasm for his upcoming return to PROGRESS and TNT Extreme Wrestling.

After all the years we’ve been away, I’m so happy I can put aside any of the issues with PROGRESS & thanks to Lee, Martyn, Jay & all the Roster & Staff for their support in bringing us back.

I cannot wait for myself & Paul Robinson to return to TNT & PROGRESS Thank you so much
