Produced by ITV Studios Entertainment, World of Sport Wrestling will see some of the UK's biggest names in the sport compete in a variety of different matches; from singles to tag teams and eliminations.

It's also been revealed that arguably the biggest name in wrestling commentary history - Jim Ross - will be a part of the show's commentating team.

Viewers will be able to catch up with the wrestlers between fights, going backstage before the end of the show, which will see the ultimate winner take home the WoS Wrestling belt.

Creative Director at ITV Studios Entertainment, Tom Mclennan commented: "World of Sport Wrestling was a major event for millions of families every Saturday afternoon for over 20 years.

"I'm excited about bringing back this iconic brand and celebrating the best British wrestlers in the country."
