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.

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.
