Axel Tischer Addresses His PROGRESS Atlas Championship Win

PROGRESS Atlas Champion Axel Tischer recently spoke with the promotion on a number of topics including his reaction to winning the title.

Tischer said, “It was an amazing feeling to win against YOICHI who was a courageous ATLAS Champion. He’s a very strong striker and one of the strongest men I’ve ever been in the ring with. On that day I was the better man, I had the chance to be one step faster and I’m so proud to be the first German PROGRESS ATLAS Champion, not just for me but to make history for my country. Emotions were pretty high after the adrenaline but after a couple of days I feel very strong and comfortable as your new ATLAS Champion and I’m ready to take on all-comers.”

On what it means to hold the title:

“It means a lot that I’m the ATLAS Champion. Not only that its my first singles belt in PROGRESS and in fact my first singles title in the UK but that its a title where so many so great wrestlers before me had the chance to represent European wrestling. I’m a big defender of that style and I’m a proud Champion so I want to represent the history and PROGRESS as much as possible. I want to enhance the legacy of the ATLAS Championship and make the previous winners and fans of the style proud with the matches in my reign.”
