ICW – The Infamous, 17/09/17, The O2 Academy, Newcastle

Newcastle is Insane Championship Wrestling’s home away from home. The city was the first place outside of Scotland to hold an ICW show and since then we have held more events then any other English town/city and this year we were lucky enough to host the company’s annual Square Go event. Wrestling fans in Newcastle always attend ICW shows in their droves and they are near enough to Scotland that a lot of the ICW faithful make the journey south of the border meaning that shows have a unique a blend of fans.

Main Event Wrestling – Planet of the Primate, Innisfree, Longbenton 27/01/17

MEW’s first show of 2017 is many things to many people. For many it will be their first wrestling show of the year, for some it will be the long awaited return of one of the Northeast wrestling scene’s biggest legends, Dave Carbon after more than 18 months in retirement. To Liam Slater it will be his first defense of his Northeast Championship. And for me it will be the end of approximately six months of organisation as the Calling Spots Championship Tournament comes to an end and the first ever Calling Spots champion is crowned. So without further ado here is our preview of the show. Continue reading

Luckily I’ve been playing a fit the obnoxiously shaped blocks into the frame game on the old dog and bone recently, so the game of human Tetris to get the guard in and out of his cupboard at every stop on the way was a bit easier than normal.
