All the latest news in British Professional Wrestling! News from British Wrestling, all around the country and everything else from “BritWres”.
Professional wrestling in the United Kingdom spans over one hundred years but became popular when the then-new independent television network ITV began showing it in 1955, firstly on Saturday afternoons and then also in a late-night midweek slot.
The sport remained a mainstay of British culture until World of Sport’s cancellation and then finally as a stand-alone program until 1988.
Despite the end of ITV coverage, a largely untelevised live circuit – with some promotions featuring the traditional British style of professional wrestling and others more fashioned after the contemporary American independent scene – survives and indeed thrives in this territory to the present day.
