Greetings grapple fans. Like a gold-ink Parker fountain with a Jim Hellwig inspired design, this is the penultimate episode of WOS Wrestling. Pushed back even earlier to 2:30pm, this week’s episode promises a unique match to decide the challenger for Rampage’s WOS Championship. I’m currently on a trip up the Scottish Highlands and accidentally caught the first three-quarters of this show whilst getting my lunch in a bar in Inverness. The lack of audio, and commentary provided by subtitles, was an interesting experience. I watched the rest and wrote up the review from the about-as-comfortable-as-you-can-hope-for-thirty-quid-a-night single hotel room for the next two nights.
Greetings grapple fans. As we reach the final episodes of this series of WOS Wrestling, ITV seem to really want to evoke that end-of-days feel by moving the show around in the time slots, as it’s a 4pm start this week.
Greetings grapple fans. It’s the second week of British wrestling’s return to ITV after thirty years in the wilderness. Consensus seems to be that the talent is there for this to be a good show, but that issues with production (camerawork and editing) and a lack of effort in establishing well-defined characters are where the show is currently lacking. Because all ten episodes of this run were recorded in advance, we can only hope this is something the production team recognised themselves whilst making the show.
Greetings grapple fans, and welcome to a new weekly recap for the latest TV wrestling show. One that has the potential to have the highest domestic viewing figures for a wrestling show in the world. In theory, anyway.
Broadcast on December 31st, 5pm on ITV. Taped November 1st at MediaCityUK, Salford.
Your hosts are Jim Ross and Alex Shane.
