Five Star Wrestling Announces Weekly TV Series on Freesports TV

Posted By Caroline Walsh on 01/08/18


According to Pwinsider, Five Star Wrestling held a media conference today in Sheffield, Great Britain announcing a weekly series on Freesports TV. The channel is available in 18 million homes in the country. The first broadcast will be February 1st from The Echo Arena in Liverpool, featuring Rey Mysterio vs. Zack Gibson. Jack Swagger was at a press conference today at the Sheffield Arena, announcing he would be taking part in the series. Rob Van Dam and John Morrison have also been advertised by the promotion.

Free Sports had announced back in September 2017 they would be working with Five Star, who last year announced a 128 Man tournament that would run over several months in Great Britain, but that was called off. The promotion later issued a grandstand offer to former WWE champion CM Punk, claiming they would pay him $1 million to compete in the tournament. Punk never responded to the offer.
