Impact Wrestling has made yet another landmark deal … as the promotion announced on Friday it will team up with ITV Studios to revive World of Sport Wrestling later this year.
WOS was the premier pro wrestling promotion in the United Kingdom from 1965-85. The company held a one-off special on New Year’s Eve back in December and has now been commissioned for an initial ten episodes … according to a press release.
Impact’s Chief Creative Officer Jeff Jarrett added, “The WOS brand is etched in professional wrestling tradition. My family’s lineage in the industry dates back 70-plus years, so I am honoured for the opportunity to work on reviving the legacy of this historic British series.”
In case you missed it, Impact announced a partnership with Lucha Libre AAA earlier this week.
The WOS episode tapings will take place at Preston Guild Hall in Lancashire on May 25th and 26th. More details and the promotion’s roster will be announced at a launch event on March 27th in Manchester. Tickets go on sale April 7th.
