Serious errors in the "cast list"
29 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

While I am sure the names of many famous male wrestlers were entered with the best motives I can assure future researchers that women wrestlers were never featured on "World of Sport". They did appear in many (mostly regional) documentaries - it was partly my job to get these made for publicity purposes when I worked for the main UK female wrestling promoter, but the women were never a part of the Saturday afternoon shows. Neither did women feature on the evening wrestling shows which used to go out at 10.30 on Wednesday evenings. We were told there was a directive from "the very top of I.T.V." prohibiting women's wrestling matches from being shown. Sorry the shown female wrestlers simply did not appear on "World of Sport".
