ICW deserves a thread on its own (have I missed it)

Recommended Posts

I batter on about them enough. Probably best to give them their own thread so as I stop annoying everyone in the big thread.

BT Gunn vs. Fergal Devitt confirmed for the first Sunday in May. Good times.

This is gonna be a long post. This is all of the videos I'd advise watching on YouTube.

Chris Renfrew and BT Gunn go at it, and The Bucky Boys battle STI in a Ladder Match:

Stevie Boy vs. Red Lightning for the title and Johnny Moss vs. Christopher:

The second annual square go ( a match that I named btw :D ) :

Jimmy Havoc and The Bucky Boys vs. Red Lightning and The Coffeys, Wolfgang vs. Lionheart ( Lionheart's final ICW match ) :

The single most insane moment in ICW history. I won't ruin it for you:

So what number was Grado in the Square go...

The Bucky Boys vs. The STI II:

Wolfgang vs. Fergal Devitt:

Red Lightning vs. Grado... the must-see for me. The crowd for this... wow:

ICW Insane in the Membrane, full show:

Kid Fite vs. Lionheart vs. Wolfgang and Jack Jester vs. BT Gunn. Could get queasy.

The Gold Label vs. ICW. In detail.

The trials and tribulations of Grado.

The Wee Man and The Bucky Boys vs. Jackie Polo, TJ Rage and Vinnie James.

James Scott vs. Jack Jester:

Liam Thomson vs. Andy Wild in part one of their best of five.

BT Gunn vs. Red Lightning. To this day, still the best angle and match that ICW have put on. Part one on here. Part two easy to find.

...

And finally, and deliberately so. Here's to ICW...


There's TONS of other stuff on that YouTube channel. The vast majority of it is worth a look.

Never been to an ICW show, but a mate raves about it and that combined with the fact that Prince Devitt is over for the show in May has made me want to go. Going to have to pick up a ticket now.

James Scott vs. Jimmy Havoc in a Falls Count Anywhere match has been added to Reservoir Dogs in May.

The night before features a Fierce Females show. Erin Angel vs. Blue Nikita, Vyper vs. April Davids and Rhia O'Reilly vs. Kay Lee Ray all added to the show.

Yup, so the card is beginning to come together on this one.

ICW Tag Team Championships

The Bucky Boys © vs. Sumerian Death Squad ( Tommy End and Michael Dante )

Falls Count Anywhere Match

James Scott vs. Jimmy Havoc

BT Gunn vs. Fergal Devitt

This is a belting card. The Sumerian Death Squad are a fairly highly thought of team in Europe. They've been sending videos from all over the place but in May, we get the meeting.

Fergal Devitt has pulled out of an SWA show because NJPW want him to be fit for their PPV, which is on May 3rd. With ICW being on the 5th, the hope is that he'd be allowed to compete though.

Fingers crossed.

Firstly, match change and two new matches for the next show.

Falls Count Anywhere

Jimmy Havoc vs. Jack Jester

Zero G Championship

Wolfgang © vs. Andy Wild vs. Joe Coffey

Noam Dar vs. Solar

Right. This is a LONG episode of Worldwide. It has...

Mark Coffey vs. El Ligero ( **** )
James Scott vs. Jimmy Havoc ( ***3/4 )
Red Lightning © vs. Jack Jester - ICW Championship ( *** )

Lots of drama and stuff from the title match, but if you don't like crowd brawling and lots of booking, then you might well hate it. The two matches before it should probably satisfy you if you don't like it. Personally I found it very enjoyable.

Worth mentioning that if anyone was planning to go to the Fierce Females show tonight, it's at the Garage rather than the Classic Grand.

Updates in this post as the show goes on.

* Red Lightning attacks Mikey Whiplash from behind when he is challenging. Red Lightning says he accepts the challenge and Mikey Whiplash needs to be helped to the back.

* Noam Dar beats Solar in a "good opener". EDIT: Also been called "tremendous".

* NAK ( BT Gunn and Chris Renfrew ) threaten the MC Liane with scissors, and Scott Maverick runs to the ring and takes a beating. New MC will be David Campbell Thomson of the Wrestleshark show.

* The Bucky Boys defeat The Sumerian Death Squad to retain the ICW Tag Team Titles. The Sumerian Death Squad attacked everyone and stole the belts. New MC is apparently brilliant.

NOTE: Looks like they're really going for the hard sell for Fear and Loathing at the ABC already.

* Grado df. Lewis Girvan. Run ins from Joe Coffey, Andy Wild, The Owen Twins, Sara, Wolfgang and Carmel along the way, and apparently the match was good fun. Sounds chaotic. Nice.

* Jackie Polo agrees to wrestle Johnny Moss, on the basis that, if he should win, he gets to wrestle Mark Dallas afterwards. If Polo beats Dallas, he takes control of ICW.

* Crazy Mary Dobson got launched from the balcony. Living up to her name clearly. Jester won with a Tombstone onto a tack covered chair on Jimmy Havoc, but not before stapling Mary Dobson's TONGUE. This woman learned from Mad Man Pondo of course. "Sick" match. EDIT: "I was squirming watching it." ... hmm.

* Fight Club vs. Christopher and "Kenneth" is now on. Kid Fite apparently has a "teabag anything that moves" policy going, which is popular as you'd imagine. Christopher and Kenneth get the win in this one. Weird. Fight Club lose it after losing.

* Fergal Devitt defeated BT Gunn. Trying to find out if it was any good. "no as good as wolfgang match but fans were chantin this match rules" ... so it must have been alright at least. A third man with the face covered has attacked Fergal Devitt post-match. Interesting turn of events.

I'll be back with the main event result later on. I've got to head off for a bit. But not before confirming a Chris Renfrew vs. Fergal Devitt match down the line.

* Back, to report that Wolfgang has beaten Andy Wild and Joe Coffey to keep the Zero G title.

* Mikey Whiplash has beaten Red Lightning and become the brand new ICW Champion. Joe Coffey also comes out and lays out Red Lightning. Looks like this is a good and proper comeuppance for the now former champ. Joe Coffey attacked Red Lightning because he's greed. That's just class. The Se7en character continues to impress. Red Lightning is now fired from ICW. Basically, this is one big b*****d of a night for Red Lightning.

Well, he'll be back! Looks like ICW have a major "whodunit?" going into the next few shows now with a new member of NAK being masked. He looks built well. Could be The Wee Man. My guess is Robbie Dynamite.

Were you there DomDom? I've not managed to get to ICW since the tail end of last year (it may have been Santa Gravy, but possibly the one before that, can't find any archive to look up!). Hoping to get back along soon, as despite the occasional booking flaws, the shows are always an absolute riot in person.

Nah. Missing a bunch of shows since T in the Park is coming up. Next one will be the next Edinburgh one since I missed the last one. Was getting updates from a mate that was there.
