ICW: Fight Club, live in Newcastle, 15/04/18

This Sunday at the Insane Champion Wrestling return to Newcastle for the first time in 2018 for ICW: Jimmy Nail’s Revenge II – The Revenge Of Jimmy Nail! ICW: Fight Club. This is the company’s last stop before their annual Barramania supershow. Their last Newcastle show, from September 2017, was one of the best shows I have attended and this one is shaping up to be equally brilliant.

So without further delay let’s take a look at the matches that have been announced so far (as always card subject to change):

Other than an appearance for the now defunct 5 Star Wrestling Big Grizzly rarely appears in Newcastle and this is one of the few opportunities wrestling fans in the area will have go watch him live. His opponent Ravie Davie has a growing fanbase in the area after his entertaining appearances for Main Event Wrestling and it’s pretty much a guarantee that the crowd will very much be on his side in this one. Given the huge size difference between the two men Davie may need more than the crowd to win this one.

At the last Newcastle show Lewis Girvan and Aspin Faith (alongside their Filthy Generation teammate Stevie Boy) tore the house down in an absolutely brutal match as they defeated Legion. Whenever I have seen the duo perform they have always stolen the show and this match against Calling Spots Champion Aaron Echo and his best friend, and former Zero G champion, Kenny William has every chance to be match of the night.

Fans of ICW will be aware of the history been these two, to put it simply they don’t like each OTHER. The ‘International Sex Hero’ DCT is one of ICW’s most popular stars and Stevie Boy has arguably the the company’s most impressive performer over the last 12 months. I’m looking forward to watching how this match unfolds.

Jody Fleisch is one of the best wrestlers the UK has ever produced and it is rare that he journeys to Newcastle to show off his unique high flying style and in my humble opinion him appearing on this card is reason alone for any BritWres fans to buy a ticket. Throw in the immensely talented Mark Coffey and the implications this match has on the upcoming gauntlet match for the Zero G championship at Barramania and there’s many many other reasons to check this out.

This is the full debut of the Sons of Ulaid in Insane Championship Wrestling. They did make an appearance ar the last Fight Club tapings in Glasgow where they made their presence felt by attacking Stevie James after his match (Krobar had been dragged off by the Scandanavian monster Tor ‘Butcher’ Atterhagen). I’m sure the Purge will be looking to get revenge on the Sick Boys and I’m sure this will be a vicious affair.

Speaking of vicious affairs this match is not going to be one for the faint hearted. All three men are death match specialists and the only thing they care less about than their own safety is that of their opponents. Whiplash’s last match in ICW had him put Jimmy Havoc through a sheet of glass (video here) so that shows what he is willing to do to an opponent in order to get the win. If you are in any way queezy I’d recommend considering giving this match a miss and visiting the merch stand (although keep your wits about you as these three may take the match over to that part of the building).

Newcastle was where the Kinky Party celebrated becoming a team, could it be the same city they celebrate becoming ICW Tag Team champions? I’m sure current champions Rampage Brown and Ashton Smith will have other ideas in mind and will be looking to extend their reign against their toughest challenge to date.

Originally BT Gunn‘s opponent was scheduled to be Paul London but unfortunately injury has sidelined the former WWE star and he will no longer be appearing in Newcastle, thankfully he has been replaced by one of the very best on the UK scene Mark Haskins. This match will be brilliant.

Tickets for the show are still available here and for more information check out ICW’s social media pages.

Joe Rage on becoming Erin Jacobs

Over recent years fans of the Northeast wrestling scene have been been spoiled as the scene has continued to grow and go from strength to strength. On top of the existing promotions like Main Event Wrestling new companies like Absolute and NORTH have been formed and provided a stage for the area’s top workers to showcase their talents. Not only are performers in the northeast incredibly talented in the ring but many of them have created their own personas that makes them stand out from the crowd. With characters such as the Sons of Ulaid, The Primate and even Mr Kill All Gimmicks himself, HT Drake at the forefront the northeast has never had such a strong talent pool as it does today.
Given the depth of talented performers it could be difficult for anyone to emerge and standout but throughout 2017 one man has managed to adapt him persona and make himself one of the more unique characters around. That character Erin Jacobs is the brainchild of the extremely talented Joe Rage and we were lucky enough to talk to Joe about his start in wrestling, how he became the performed he is today and how he created the Erin Jacobs character. We hope you enjoy it… Continue reading

Futureshock Wrestling ‘Uproar 91’ – 13/11/16

It’s a fine balance to strike and one that not many bookers would manage to pull off, but from the opening contest, the variety on offer is made totally clear. Continue reading

WCPW Refuse To Lose

On October 6th 2016 WhatCulture Pro Wrestling made the leap from free special events broadcasted on YouTube to hosting their first ever live iPPV via their own service WhatCulture Extra as well as the FITE Network. Now despite this not going quite as well as the company had hope (more on that later) it is fair to say that very few people who saw Refuse To Lose live or later online will have feel short changed on the product they received.
