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.

I met Sean McLaughlin a few months ago at WhatCulture Pro Wrestling after being introduced to the man by their then-press officer Suzie Kennedy. We talked and I got the information I needed to create a profile on him for our profile section. After some gentle badgering by Sean I eventually got round to creating it.

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
