Jonathan Gresham Earns PROGRESS World Title Shot At Ric Flair's Last Match

Jonathan Gresham is coming back for the PROGRESS World Title

Jonathan Gresham wasn't gone from professional wrestling for long. 

The Octopus returned to the ring for the first time since he dropped the ROH World Title at Death Before Dishonor at 'Ric Flair's Last Match' on Sunday and Gresham earned himself a shot at the PROGRESS World Championship with a Four-Way win over Nick Wayne, Konosuke Takeshita, and Alan Angels. 

Gresham picked up the victory after catching Angels in an O'Connor Roll.

Gresham has history with the British promotion and he was PROGRESS World Champion earlier this year but he was stripped of the title in May at Chapter 134. Chris Ridgeway then won Super Strong Style 16 to become the new PROGRESS World Champion. When Gresham will challenge for the gold has yet to be revealed. 

The former ROH World Champion looked set to be done with professional wrestling for the foreseeable future after he asked for his release from AEW/ROH ahead of Death Before Dishonor. If that request was granted has yet to be confirmed and no bridges are believed to have been burned with the promotion.
