PROGRESS Wrestling recently announced the fourth name for their upcoming annual tournament, Super Strong Style 16 (SSS16). The Lucha Ghoul of the Pacific Northwest, Sonico, will be coming to join in the tournament for the first time in his career. Sonico is a product of Lucha Libre Volcanica.

Based in the PNW, he works primarily for DEFY Wrestling, 3-2-1 BATTLE!, Prestige Wrestling, Don’t Own Anyone (DOA) Pro Wrestling, and Without A Cause. In late 2019, he also had the opportunity to go on an excursion and work for Pro Wrestling NOAH. While in Japan, he had the opportunity to work with names such as Junta Miyawaki, Akitoshi Saito, Masao Inoue, and another SSS16 competitor, Chris Ridgeway. Ridgeway got the win over the Lucha Ghoul in Yokahama. It would be fun to see them face off again. Sonico also participated in the Wrestle Summit 2 in December 2019 which featured talents from DEFY Wrestling, PCW ULTRA, and PROGRESS.
Sonico has held three titles in his relatively short career thus far, the DOA Pure Wrestling Championship, the 3-2-1 BATTLE! Seattle Underground Championship, and the Lucha Libre Volcanica Grand Championship. For what he lacks in size, he makes it up with his technical ability on the mat and in the Lucha style. He also has a lot of heart which he will bring with him into Ally Pally on the weekend of May 23rd through the 25th when he enters his first SSS16.
