The company was conceived by Jim Smallman and Jon Briley in 2011, who were both massive wrestling fans. Smallman is a big fan of "strong-style" wrestling, Japanese in particular, and Briley was Smallman's agent. The pair decided to put on a wrestling show in London, as not many shows were being put on in the capital itself, featuring the type of wrestling that they would both like to watch. The pair then spent seven months putting their first show together. Smallman is also a huge fan of punk music, and the pair decided to emphasize the fact that it would be a London-based promotion with a punk rock vibe. They also were keen not to be import-heavy, like other promotions, but to promote British talent. The pair eventually settled on The Garage in Islington for the venue, because of the size and also having a great reputation as a music venue. The Garage were also very supportive of what Smallman and Briley wanted to do, and the pair ran their first show on 25 March 2012.
After eleven consecutive sell out shows at the Garage, with the later shows drawing 350 fans, the promotion moved to the 700-capacity Electric Ballroom in Camden from Chapter Twelve in March 2014 for their second anniversary show where the sell outs have continued. To date PROGRESS has sold out all London Chapter shows at The Garage and Electric Ballroom.
The promotion have been reluctant to use "imports" (talent for which the UK is not their home or one of their homes). Colt Cabana was the first such talent to be included on a show as part of the debut show, Chapter One, in a losing effort to Loco Mike Mason. Ricochet has appeared twice for the promotion, losing to El Ligero at Chapter Six and in a triple threat with Mark Haskins and Zack Sabre Jr at Chapter Eleven. Adam Cole was the first non-European wrestler to register a win in PROGRESS, defeating Mark Haskins at Chapter Ten. Prince Devitt also appeared twice for the promotion, defeating Zack Sabre Jr at Chapter Thirteen and losing to Jimmy Havoc at the PROGRESS World Cup, his final match in the UK before signing with the WWE. Other talents that have appeared include Samoa Joe, Roderick Strong and Tommaso Ciampa; though Ciampa has established himself as a PROGRESS regular with seven Chapter show appearances. At Chapter 21, Adam Cole and Roderick Strong made their second appearances for PROGRESS by answering and later losing the Sumerian Death Squad (Tommy End & Michael Dante)'s open challenge.
Though they have run most of their shows in London, in 2014 Progress held three shows at The Satellite Stage at the Sonisphere Festival, and in 2015 they appeared for five nights at Download Festival. In December 2015 they began running regular shows at The Ritz in Manchester.
It was announced that Chapter 36, to be held in September 2016, will now be held at the legendary Brixton Academy in London. This will be the biggest show PROGRESS have ever held, with a capacity of over 2000 people expected to attend.
It was also announced that at Chapter 29 on the 24th of April in London, Progress would host two qualifying matches for the WWE Cruiserweight Classic (originally titled the 'Global Cruiserweight Series').

In late 2012 PROGRESS launched the only full-time wrestling school in London and the South East, also known as the ProJo. The school has classes for beginner and advanced level wrestlers, and has a wrestling ring permanently erected along with another ring-sized matted area. The original head trainer at the school was Jimmy Havoc, but he was replaced in November 2013 by Darrell Allen. Other trainers include Danny Garnell, James Davis, Eddie Dennis and Wild Boar Mike Hitchman. The school has hosted seminars by the likes of Michael Elgin, Scott Levy, Nigel McGuinness and others. In late 2013 PROGRESS announced that the ProJo students would be putting on their own shows, which would be called ENDVR. ENDVR shows feature a mix of trainees from the ProJo, their trainers, and other professional wrestlers. The first four ENDVR shows were held at The Bedford Arms in Balham, while ENDVR:5 was held as an afternoon show before the Progress World Cup on 29 June 2014 at The Garage in Islington. Starting from ENDVR:8, the trainee shows move to The Garage on a permanent basis.
Jimmy Havoc & Regression
To date, the most significant storyline within the company has been that of Jimmy Havoc's ascent to the championship. Havoc debuted for PROGRESS on Chapter Two in May 2012 and went on to lose six matches without registering a victory, though became very popular with the PROGRESS fans as an underdog babyface. At Chapter Nine in November 2013 Havoc attacked promoter Jim Smallman and aligned himself with the London Riots, turning heel in the process. Havoc would then use an open contract given to him by Smallman to defeat PROGRESS champion Mark Andrews (who had just wrestled both Paul Robinson and Rampage Brown in consecutive matches) to become champion and pick up his first victory in PROGRESS.
In his first title defence at Chapter Eleven, Havoc defeated Zack Sabre Jr with the help of his newest associate, PROGRESS trainee 'The Omega' Isaac Zercher. Havoc was joined at Chapter Thirteen by Paul Robinson, and the group later christened themselves 'Regression' as a play on the name of the company and to symbolise their hatred of PROGRESS Wrestling.
The group lost its first members at Chapter Fifteen, as the four members of the group (not including Zercher) took on PROGRESS Tag Team champions Eddie Dennis and Mark Andrews, Will Ospreay and Noam Dar in a 'titles vs careers' match. Ospreay pinned James Davis of the London Riots, meaning that the Riots were gone from PROGRESS.
Havoc eventually lost the title at Chapter Twenty to Will Ospreay in a no disqualification match. At Chapter Twenty-One, Havoc and Robinson were placed in a number one contenders no disqualification match against each other. The two engaged in a bloody contest with Robinson emerging victorious, seemingly signalling the end of Regression.
Unlike conventional wrestling championships which are generally represented by a belt, the PROGRESS championship was initially represented by a large staff with an eagle head piece. At Chapter Sixteen the staff was replaced by a more traditional title belt. As of April 2, 2016 the title is now considered a 'world' championship, having been defended in the United States at the Wrestlecon Supershow in Dallas, Texas. The title was subsequently defended in Italy on April 30, 2016 and Ireland on July 16, 2016.

PROGRESS Tag Team Championship
It was announced at Chapter Nine that beginning in November 2013 there would begin a series of matches to determine the first PROGRESS Tag Team champions. The champions were crowned at Chapter Twelve, the second anniversary show, in March 2014. As with the PROGRESS championship not being a conventional belt, the Tag Team championship is represented by a shield with the PROGRESS eagle on the front. The shield splits into two, one for each championship holder.

PROGRESS Atlas Championship
At Chapter Twenty Seven, it was announced that PROGRESS would be adding a third title, which would be called the Atlas Championship. The criteria for this championship is that it would be a division for wrestlers who weigh over 205lbs, and the matches have a 15-minute time limit. Two blocks of four wrestlers will compete in a round robin format from April to September 2016, with the winner from each group facing off in a final match at Chapter 36 to decide the inaugural champion.
PROGRESS Women's Championship
It was announced on April 24, 2016 that the 4th Natural Progression Series would crown the first PROGRESS Women's Champion.
Natural Progression Series
Beginning with Chapter Four: The Ballad of El Ligero, PROGRESS launched the Natural Progression Series, with the intention of showcasing young and up-and-coming British talent. From Chapter Four each card will feature a match in the series. The tournament was announced as an annual tournament. The winner gains a shot at the PROGRESS title, the Natural Progression Series trophy and is allowed to install a wrestler who was previously eliminated in that year's tournament into the next Natural Progression Series. At the conclusion of the Natural Progression Series III, it was decided to revoke the opportunity for the winner to install someone into the next tournament. This was because the Natural Progression Series IV would be an all-female tournament to crown the first PROGRESS Women's Champion.
(Chapters Four, Five, Six and Seven)
(Chapters Eight and Nine)
At the conclusion of the first Natural Progression Series final the winner, Mark Andrews, decided to install Will Ospreay into the next tournament.

The start of the Natural Progression Series IV has not been announced, but it will be to crown the first PROGRESS Women's Champion.
Super Strong Style 16
The Super Strong Style 16 is an annual two-day tournament with competitors from around the world, in the vein of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's Battle of Los Angeles or Westside Xtreme Wrestling's 16 Carat tournament. The winner of the tournament receives a PROGRESS Championship match. The first event was held in 2015, and was won by Will Ospreay, who went on to win the championship at Chapter Twenty: ThunderBastard: Beyond ThunderBastard.

- This match was also an Atlas Championship Tournament group stage match. Had the match lasted longer than 15 minutes, both wrestlers would have been awarded one point for a draw with the match continuing only for the SSS16 tournament.
- After Haskins collapsed from exhaustion between the first and second day, a single fall Redemption Scramble match was held at the start of day two between all of the wrestlers who lost in the first round, Nathan Cruz and El Ligero.
PROGRESS World Cup
The PROGRESS World Cup was held in June 2014 at The Garage in Islington, with 8 members of the PROGRESS roster representing individual countries. The winner of this one-day tournament would be given a title shot against the PROGRESS Champion.
At the conclusion of the tournament final Jim Smallman approached Rampage Brown, the tournament runner-up, and said that if Brown left the Screw Indy Wrestling faction he would let him face Samoa Joe at Chapter 14. Brown accepted the offer, and was installed as Samoa Joe's opponent at the promotion's Thunderbastard show in July.
