ITV.com is reporting that WOS Wrestling (World of Sport Wrestling) will be returning to present a 10-part wrestling series from ITV Studios Entertainment.
Tapings have been announced for May 10, 11 and 12 at Epic Studios in Norwich. Tickets are now available for all three tapings (tickets are free to attend live).
Last March, Anthem and Impact Wrestling announced a partnership with with ITV Studios Entertainment to take part in tapings last May around the time Jeff Jarrett was returning to the company in an executive role. The tapings never took place and plans for the project were put on hold according to an announcement last May.
While it would appear Anthem and Impact Wrestling is not involved this time around, WWE did announce another return to the UK market on June 18 and 19 in London to bring back the United Kingdom Championship Tournament at Royal Albert Hall. WWE first ran a UK tournament last January in Blackpool that ran on the WWE Network.
While it remains to be seen if Jarrett is involved with this version of tapings, he did tweet just two days ago hinting at “finalizing a deal” aimed at UK pro wrestling fans.
Tom McLennan, Creative Director, ITV Studios Entertainment, spoke about the new project.
“There is a massive indie wrestling scene in the UK and a strong nostalgia for the wrestling shows of our youth. WOS Wrestling will combine the best of the past with incredible talent available today to make a fun, exciting and thrilling show that the whole family can enjoy.”
