World of Sport Wrestling is to return to TV screens in the UK, 30 years after it ended, with the new series being filmed in Norwich.
WOS Wrestling will feature the top UK stars of the sport and will be recorded in front of a live audience at Epic Studios on Magdalen Street.
The performers will take part in 'various, intense bouts' during the 10-part series and at the end of each show one wrestler will take home the WOS Wrestling Championship belt.
There will also be backstage interviews between rounds to deliver news on what the wrestling stars are thinking - be it elation or frustration.
Tom McLennan, creative director at ITV Studios Entertainment, said: 'There is a massive indie wrestling scene in the UK and a strong nostalgia for the wrestling shows of our youth.
