ITV today announced it’s to bring back the iconic ‘WOS’ Wrestling for a 10-part series.

ITV has teamed up with Anthem Sports and Entertainment Corp; the parent company of IMPACT Wrestling, following a successful one-off-special, which aired on New Year’s Eve 2016.

Thirty years after the original WOS ended – and legendary stars such as Big Daddy, Mick McManus and Rollerball Rocco left British screens – this new series will feature the very best of today’s wrestlers from the current red-hot UK wrestling scene.

They will compete in front of a live audience at the intimate Preston Guild Hall on Thursday 25th May and Friday 26th May (doors 7pm / bell time 7.30pm).

Director of Entertainment, ITV Studios Manchester, Tom Mclennan said: “Britain’s wrestling scene is thriving and there has never been a better time to bring it back to ITV after a gap of 30 years.”

Tickets for these historic shows will go on sale at 9am on Friday 7th April from gigsandtours.com / ticketmaster.co.uk / prestonguildhall.co.uk

“The WOS brand is etched in professional wrestling tradition,” said Jeff Jarrett, Chief Creative Officer for IMPACT Wrestling.

“My family’s lineage in the industry dates back 70-plus years, so I am honoured to revive the legacy of this historic British series.”
