WoS/World of Sport’s first show of their re-debut took place tonight on Britain’s biggest mainstream channel ITV. The programme is set for a 10 show stint running into October and is available to every television set in the United Kingdom.
The stars of the show took to Twitter after the event to react to pro wrestling returning to British television, including Davey Boy Smith Jr, Will Ospreay, Grado, Stu Bennett, SoCal Val and Kip Sabian.
You can check out all of our WoS coverage via the UK section at the top of the site, including the news of a Major Title Change on Night 1, Stu Bennett hyping the reboot, our Exclusive interview with Viper/Piper Niven and our Editorial explaining why WoS heading to mainstream British television is a really big deal.
I’ve had many highs throughout my career, & hearing all of your kind words about the first @WOSWrestling show makes this another huge high in my life. I’m very proud of everyone at #wos & @ITV @ITVSport for making this happen #BritishWrestling #daveyboysmithjr #thebritishbulldog

With so much packed into that 1hr show (we don’t do ‘filler’ at @WOSWrestling..) it was impossible to give our incredible female athletes the platform they DESERVE in episode 1. All I’ll say is DON’T MISS EPISODE 2 ???

Hope you all enjoyed the 1st @WOSWrestling!
Gutted to have lost the title (after holding it for 574 days, on my 1st defence ???)…. BUT delighted British Wrestling is back on the telly and it looks like the response has been SUPERB ?
