The #SpeakingOut movement took over the entire internet wrestling community for the past few days. Plenty of names were released and you can click here for a list. One company is already making big changes.
Progress Wrestling announced that they are taking the #SpeakingOut movement seriously. The allegations brought against wrestlers already cause a few of them to be removed or indefinitely suspended from the company.
The company is taking it a step further. They announced that Glen Robinson and Matt Richards are leaving the company. More big changes are to be announced shortly, but the company is going through a total overhaul from the look of things.
When it comes to PROGRESS, huge change is needed and huge change has begun:
Glen Robinson and Matt Richards are stepping away. @VickyHaskins is involved @lucefromsocials is involved @jamesamner is involved
& I am involved
More on this tomorrow

Prior to Michael Oku revealing himself as one of the new people in power at Progress, he posted a video on the subject. You can find that below. This will be a very interesting time for the company as they rebuild fan faith through a pandemic when they are unable to currently run events.
We will keep an eye on this story and everything else involving the #SpeakingOut movement right here at Ringside News.
