This site is an ongoing project to list all the matches aired by ITV between its first airing in 1955, and 1988 when Greg Dyke cancelled British wrestling broadcasts. The listings are taken from sources including the TV Times and include match descriptions where originally listed plus results where available. We are also gradually adding links to YouTube videos of matches where available.
