Description

Next month, the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) circus comes to Britain, with live shows in Belfast, Newcastle, Liverpool, London, Birmingham, Sheffield and Cardiff.



For many, they will remember the days of Hulk Hogan, Bret the Hitman Hart and the British Bulldog. So, is wrestling just as popular in 2019 as it was in the 1980s and 90s?



This week, Georgie Frost focuses on the billion dollar sport of wrestling with chief executive of the Wrestling Travel company Lee McAteer.



He recently visited New Jersey, in the US, for Wrestlemania 35 - and returns to give us expert insight, talk about the money-side of the sport, and why more people are taking an interest in sports tourism.



Lee is also Associate Director of Tranmere Rovers and the pair also look at lower league funding in football.



The Prenton Park outfit are currently battling it out to gain promotion from League Two - after just one season back on the Football League, having spent a few years in the National League.



Lee Boyce is away.
