Impact Wrestling’s chief creative officer and new WOS executive producer Jeff Jarrett recently spoke with The Mirror, and during the interview Jarrett revealed World of Sport Wrestling’s return to ITV is just the first step in the revamped brand becoming “a full-on wrestling promotion”. Jarrett had the following to say on the promotion’s return:
“Being a part of this opportunity is great, but from the very beginning, it’s a full-on wrestling promotion. It goes with everything.
This show is already being shopped internationally around the world. We are going to look at live touring, merchandise, licencing, who knows, maybe a pay-per-view in the future.
But it’s a full-on wrestling promotion. It’s not going to just be a television show.”
Jarrett confirmed there would be no restrictions on WOS talents working for other independent promotions, but said they could not appear on other TV shows.
“As far as on-screen, on television, that’s the nature of the business we’re in, so they won’t be participating in other television programmes, but independent promotions, yes.”
