World of Sport returned Saturday to the United Kingdom’s ITV network. This first of 10 one-hour episodes most notability featured the crowning of Rampage Brown as the company’s new World Champion. Other matches included Will Ospreay facing off against Davey Boy Smith Jr., a tag team match involving Impact Wrestling’s Joe Hendry and Martin Kirby. In addition, former WWE Star Wade Barrett also made an appearance under the ring name Stu ‘Bad News Barrett’ Bennett.
The original World of Sport ran on ITV from 1965 to 1985 and ended after ITV had a switch in emphasis for their programming. World of Sport returned in 2016 and filmed a pilot episode in November of that year where Impact Wrestling’s Grado won the WOS World Championship and then relinquished it to Rampage Brown.
The next episode of World of Sport airs August 4 at 5:00pm BST.
