    IndyPuro World of Sport on ITV Thread

    I didn't see another thread for the old show, if there was one, oops.

    Results aren't out yet from what I can see but here's a list of talent involved from day one:

    Will Ospreay
    Davey Boy Smith JR
    Grado
    Doug Williams
    Rampage Brown
    Sha Samuels
    Lionheart
    Kay Lee Ray
    Viper
    Martin Kirby
    Joe Hendry
    Bea Priestley
    Nathan Cruz
    Ieysten Rees
    Kip Sabian
    Robbie X
    Justin Sysum
    Adam Maxted
    Gabriel Kidd
    HT Drake
    Liam Slater
    CJ Banks

    And apparently Bad News Barrett, Alex Shane, and So Cal fucking Val did commentary

    A bit disappointed Rampage, Hendry, Piper, and KLR are involved in this as I wanted them on the UK brand, but otherwise, cool I guess. This lineup doesn't do much for me. Still, cool that they're on TV. Hopefully the ten episodes do well.

    That's a good question, but I don't actually know I just know it's a ten ep season and they're filming it across the next 3-4 days.

    First wasn't that bad Baldy :haha:

    Decent list of talent overall. Some surprises like Dook said, noticed the amount of ICW talent too which is interesting considering their relationship with WWE.

    Maxted is concerning because his career is built off being on an ITV reality show, so I can see him getting a big push by default.

    Re: World of Sport on ITV Thread

    Will Ospreay being involved is huge. The big problem I had with the first episode was that the quality of wrestling was so low and had Grado as champion so it was never going to appeal to someone like me. Now that they've got one of the best in the world on the roster, someone who is definitely eye catching to the casual viewer tuning in, my interest is raised and I think it's a great coup for the show.

    Interesting to see no El Ligero listed.

    Yeah, him and Mastiff not there surprised me, but I guess they could be on a different day.

    Re: World of Sport on ITV Thread

    Maxted didn't get that kind of big push on 5* so he shouldn't on this either....well fingers crossed anyway haha.

    Shame not to see someone like Eddie Ryan on this as he's been bubbling nicely recently and would be well worth the exposure against someone like Ospreay.

    Anyone hear if any other talent were used the following days?

    I hear you.

    But I just find it all very interesting because there's a small little contract war going on in the UK, but it doesn't just effect ITV/WWE UK since it'll likely effect Progress/Defiant/ICW/Rev Pro/etc too short term or long term. Lots of chances for guys to step up too.

    Re: The Official British Wrestling Discussion Thread

    Still doesn't look up my street, but I'll give it a whirl for one episode.

    The world cup is making itself known on the Britwres scene. Rev Pro have moved a show next Sunday back a few weeks into August, and Progress are talking about starting their show a little earlier next Sunday. Why? The World Cup final is next Sunday and football is coming home. There's been some people moaning about this on twitter because now their commute plans are ruined, but these are people that don't seem to understand the magnitude of the situation if England did indeed find themselves their biggest game in 52 years.

    Re: The Official British Wrestling Discussion Thread

    I'll be working most of the time it's on, so it'll be a mostly ITV Player job for me. Still, I'll likely be in a hotel room for the first episode so will probably give that one a whirl.

    Makes me glad I'm skipping the Birmingham show in hindsight, may be potentially dodging a bullet there. Didn't realise PROGRESS & Rev Pro were running shows the same day though.

    Re: The Official British Wrestling Discussion Thread

    You know what? That wasn't bad.

    Ospreay/DBS was a good match, the tag match was fine, set up a grudge and kicked off the tournament (although I loathe anything resembling an Iestyn Rees push). 5-way accomplished what it need, no idea who Justin Sylum or Crater are, don't care yet either but Crater will serve a purpose at least. Commentary was fine too.

    Belt's off Grado and on Rampage Brown. What more could you ask for?

    Re: World of Sport on ITV Thread

    Could be better numbers for a tea time ITV show. However, it's worth noting that's still 920,000 people watching British wrestling on TV.
