It had no depth to it in my view. Just lightish touch pro. Few submission attempts and really not so much of a link to WOS. I guess it is playing to an audience that is more used to American pro wrestling. Time will tell...

Completely forgot it was on, though by the sounds of it I didnt miss much. I prefer watching the classic British, American and Japanese wrestling from the 60s to the 80's, on youtube, more action less pezzazz.

more gimmicks than wrestling in it...some of the wrestlers looked the part though.

I loved it!!!

Yes, there is a bit too much talking and I tired of the "don't try this at home" lectures but the sheer athleticism of the men is incredible. It was good fun and good entertainment.

I hope that it does catch on but it does have a lot of competition. The original WoS never had that,

Perhaps I've been spoilt but I've seen some good matches at pippas that hand a bit more energy than what I saw on tv.

You're right about competition. For storylines and theatrics, it'll have to compete to the mega-but lazy brand of wwe- and for the "just watching no frills two guys fighting" audience, they have mma.

I didn't even know it was starting.

Watched a couple of minutes earlier and wasn't sure about the Americanisation of it.

Will reserve judgement till I see some actual wrestling on it.

Yeah. I kinda think they might be on a hiding to nothing with it. I spotted they are doing ladders next week 😤

But it might find it's feet. Kinda the wrong time of year for viewing fingers though. Think it might be doomed.

Anyone catch it Saturday? Did it have you gripped or was it disappointing?
