FB_IMG_1479926745456

I don’t want to spoil the illusion but the wrestlers you see on TV weren’t just created that way, each and every one of them (even the crapper ones) have put years into honing their craft and becoming the star they are. Perhaps their character will change but the moves they have learned and the way they carry themselves will often remain the same. Continue reading

This phenomenon isn’t just something happening in wrestling as companies around the world are hosting evenings with athletes from a plethora of sports as well as acting stars from the stage and screen.

Next week is one of the biggest weekends in wrestling. WWE Survivor Series is being talked about internationally and closer to home ICW Fear & Loathing IX is the talk of British wrestling. Although both of the aforementioned shows will undoubtedly have some water cooler moments (if such things exist in 2016) there are other wrestling events running that weekend that have potential to be absolute classics. Up and down the UK companies like Fight! Nation, New Generation Wrestling, Preston City Wrestling and WrestleZone will be putting on show but the one that has caught my eye is Target Wrestling at The Venue in Carlisle. Continue reading

NORTH Wrestling NCL: They Will March On – The Riverside, 5th November 2016

One of my favourite things about being a wrestling fan is seeing a wrestler for the first time and then following their journey to (hopefully) the pinnacle of the wrestling world. Take Noam Dar for example, I had heard of him, watched him and spoken to him years before he was on the WWE radar and now he is signed to the world’s largest wrestling, sorry, sports entertainment company. Maybe I’m wrong but I think that’s cool (albeit if a bit pretentious). Continue reading

ICW Fans Podcast Live: 24

FB_IMG_1476405382984

Let’s be honest. We wrestling fans sometimes get a bit of a bad rap. Some of us look quite scary, we almost always wear black (because all the best t-shirts are black!) and often we like go stand too close to each other and shout obscenities at half dressed people beating each other up for our entertainment. Given all that it’s understandable that our community’s reputation isn’t as good as it could be. Continue reading
