The new relaunch of World of Sport Wrestling will debut on ITV on July 28. Ahead of its premiere WOSW has announced its roster.
Headed by the return of Viper, who won the first women’s singles match last year, independent talent announced so far include:
- Ayesha Raymond
- Kasey Owens
- Kay Lee Ray
- Bea Preistly
- Rachel Stringer (backstage reporter)
- SoCal Val (Commentary)
It’s being rumored that WOSW contracts include union representation and healthcare, something WWE doesn’t offer since wrestlers are classified as “independent contractors.”
WWE has been trying to scoop up as much talent as it can to compete with the new relaunch of the brand, barring its UK contracted talent from appearing on the show despite allowing some to participate on the indies.
