Cultaholic is a YouTube channel and independent website run by British wrestling fans Adam Pacitti, Jack King, Ross Tweddell and Sam Driver. The group started after all four men, and their colleague Adam Blampied, resigned from their jobs at WhatCulture Wrestling. During their more than two years with the company, each of the members became well-known as the channel's official faces, thanks to their videos and content about news from the world of wrestling (particularly WWE) and eventually had a hand in forming the channel's own independent wrestling promotion, WhatCulture Pro Wrestling (later renamed Defiant Wrestling).

The group left WhatCulture in late 2017 to pursue making Cultaholic, where their content mostly remained the same as those created previously. Before the channel's launch, Blampied's contract was terminated after he had confessed on Twitter that he had used his status as an internet celebrity to request nudes from female fans; this was following stories and allegations accusing him of sexually harassing women, which he had confirmed.note 


In 2019, Tom Campbell joined the channel and became part of the regular on-screen team.

On another note, Cultaholic also has a sister channel, Triple Jump, which focuses on video game-related content instead and is run by fellow WhatCulture alum, Ben Potter and Peter Austin. Both have collaborated on various videos where there is an overlap in their interests.
