Australia’s World Series Wrestling (WSW) promotion has reached an agreement with the Global Wrestling Network (streaming service run by Anthem Sports and Entertainment).
World Series of Wrestling joins promotions such as Border City Wrestling, RISE, Smash, and Destiny Wrestling on the GWN roster of promotions. World Series of Wrestling events can now be seen in their entirety on the Global Wrestling Network app.
The streaming service is most closely associated with Impact Wrestling but features events from other promotions as well. The app has reportedly seen a rise in downloads since Impact footage appeared on WWE programming as part of the Hardy Boyz documentary. The app has the entire Hardy Saga available for viewing.
The most recent exclusive event on the service was Impact Wrestling’s “Zero Fear One Night Only” pay-per-view. The event featured a main event of Austin Aries taking on Rich Swann from Mississauga, ON, Canada.

World Series Wrestling on GWN APP
“Founded in 2005, WSW has toured across Australia, hosting shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Newcastle. The reigning WSW World Champion, Austin Aries, appropriately nicknamed “The Belt Collector,” is also the current IMPACT World Champion. Events have showcased other stars from IMPACT Wrestling, including Brian Cage and Tessa Blanchard, plus popular independent wrestling talent such as Ricochet, Marty Scurll, The Young Bucks, Matt Riddle, Zack Sabre Jr. and The Briscoes.”
Recently on episodes of Impact Wrestling, footage of Brian Cage wrestling for World Series Wrestling has been shown.
Austin Aries is the current heavyweight champion of the promotion. He defeated Ricochet for the honors. The name of the tag-team champions is the “Concrete Dongs”. Joey Ryan and Concrete Davidson make up the team. The previous champions before them had been the Young Bucks.
World Series Wrestling will be filming matches in upcoming shows for a pay-per-view show scheduled to air on the FITE app.
