I can not recall the last time I was actually crying with laughter whilst watching a wrestling show. The idea of doing a retro wrestling show was completely brilliant  and whoever thought this concept up is a genius. Firstly Jimmy Barnett announcing in that very smart Brown/Beige suit was first class. The commentary team was by far the best I have heard on a British Wrestling show and hope they are a regular fixture in Progress. “You Can’t Do That To Live Stock” was a personal favourite one liner from Matt Smith that had me in stitches. Then there are the in ring performers who portrayed these hilarious characters and did such a good job that it made me want to see them perform as these characters permanently. There were guys like Travis Banks (Progress Champion) who is so serious all the time  acting like one half of The Bushwackers so well that he had me crying with laughter, Sexsmith as AJ Streetsmith and Havoc as Jizzy Jizzbourne was pure comedy gold. The only regret I have is that I was not there live to see it as this was the funniest show I have ever watched and is not only now a personal favourite but is without doubt a favourite for show of the year and one of the best Progress Shows Of All Time. I just hope there are more of these gems of shows  to come in the future . I would love to see Eighties and Nineties Retro Shows  when they get to those Chapters. So if you want to have a laugh and like being entertained then I suggest that if you have not watched this show then do it ASAP.
