    For those of you living in the UK and of a certain age will remember being glued to the TV every Saturday watching World of Sport.

    Well, starting this Saturday ay 5.00pm it's back on ITV.

    I'll be watching because HAVOC Catch Wrestling coach Harry Smith is talking part.

    I recall watching his father the British Bulldog when I was a young lad, so for me this is extra special.

    You should watch it because it's awesome.

    Mushroom De-powered to come back better than before.

    Great timing for the return. Especially when WWE has invested more into the UK branch. Some great guys coming out of there.

    I have a few friends in the London Luchadores scene and they are definitely some to look out for.

    Great. Now more people will start thinking 'wrestling' is just WWE-garbage, not a real sport. :mad:

    That's a bit of a disservice to the physical rigours WWE athletes go through. The results of matches might be fake but the demands on wrestlers' bodies is not.

    Harry is a 2x NAGA champ and won the Billy Robinson CACC classic two weeks ago -he was trained by Billy Robinson and Stu Hart, trains regularly with Josh Barnett and Sakuraba and many others... methinks he knows wrestling a smidge

    The British pro scene was Catch influenced, indeed the holds were legit just applied in a worked sense.

    Pro style is still the single most physically gruelling training I have ever done bar none

    No one thinks it’s real anymore; kayfabe died a long time ago so there is no real basis to your objection other than “I don’t like it” - that’s cool and all, but many of us love our ‘rasslin too

    Fine athletic specimens that they were, even when I was only single digits in age I didn't think this was real.

    Poor choice of words on my part. I agree you have to be in excellent physical and athletic condition and there is a lot of skill involved, but to quote South Park:
