It’s a bigger platform. The WWE Network has been around for just under seven years and has changed the way life works for wrestling fans. One of the biggest changes was the library of shows being opened to the fans, giving them more wrestling to watch than they should know what to do with for a very long time. That wasn’t all though as the Network would air new content as well, and now we are getting something new again.
The Coronavirus has changed the way wrestling works for everyone and that is going to be the case for a very long time to come. We are still a pretty long way off from having a full allottment of fans in attendance for events but companies are still plowing forward. Some promotions have yet to return and might not, but one of the bigger ones is going to be back on a rather nice stage.
WWE.com has announced that Progress Wrestling will be coming to the WWE Network with Chapter 104 airing on the WWE Network on Saturday, February 20. The show, titled Chapter 104: Natural Progression, will feature the start of the Natural Progression Series tournament. There is no word on if Progress will be airing further new events on the Network. The Network has uploaded past Progress events, along with Best Of specials, in recent months.

Progress has had some great moments. Check out some of their efforts:
Opinion: Cool. This is the kind of thing that could help both sides out a bit as Progress has an audience of its own and if the WWE can pick up some of that audience, both sides can be helped. Above all else, it gives the Progress wrestlers a place to showcase themselves and helps Progress out as well. Maybe WWE moves into a bit more control of Progress, which would certainly expand their footprint in England as well as keep Progress going for the time being.
