We're Afraid We've Got Some Good News: Wade Barrett Joins ITV's World of Sport Wrestling

Stu Bennett, the pro wrestler you probably know best as former WWE Superstar Wade Barrett, has been officially announced as the Executive and Commentator for World of Sport, ITV's revival of the classic British pro wrestling show. World of Sport announced the news on Twitter.

Bennett commented on the news:

World of Sport also released a trailer for the series recently, which you can watch below:

Of course, WWE has also been stepping up their presence in the U.K. of late, fueled by a need to squash all competition, so things appear to be heating up in the U.K. pro wrestling scene.

Vote in the poll below, and if enough readers ask for it, we'll tell Rich he has to give the fans what they want.



About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
