WWE Allows NXT Star To Compete In PROGRESS Super Strong Style Tournament

PROGRESS Wrestling has announced the latest name for the upcoming Super Strong Style tournament and it happens to be a WWE NXT Superstar.

UK company, PROGRESS Wrestling and WWE have enjoyed a healthy relationship ever since the first WWE UK Championship tournament where the independent company helped WWE bring in talent, such as Pete Dunne.

That relationship has continued to grow with PROGRESS being able to put on showcase matches at WWE Axxess and now the company has revealed they will be borrowing a current NXT star for the Super Strong Style tournament.

It was revealed that none other than Kassius Ohno will be competing in the 16-man tournament which takes place from May 5-7, with the Knockout Artist making his return to the company.
