Got it in 1. I've not been to an ICW show yet, but I've heard only great things. Steadily building and will continue to do so, as long as they continue to keep building their own talent and bringing guys through from the Scottish wrestling schools, especially Source the SWA school. Guys like Joe Coffey, who's sadly down with an injury, have amazing potential. Coffey actually toured in Japan with Zero1 last year with his brother Mark going on to do the same this year.

Another guy with huge potential is Lewis Girvan, young lad is only 17 and has massive amounts of talent.



Scottish Heavyweight Title match from late last year at a trials show. Young Gallagher has massive potential and is one of the finest grapplers I have seen. Whiplash is a bit of a veteran of the UK scene now, passing on his wealth of knowledge up North of the border.

This is genuinely the best live match I have saw. Considering I saw the HBK/Cena hour long epic on Raw a few years back, that's a well earned accolade from me.

P.S. to further corroborate, All Star is the only 'full-time' company in the UK. Companies like FutureShock and PCW are also worth a mention.

Never heard of HXC before but there are quite a few of these hardcore promotions cropping up now. As mentioned ICW in Scotland is becoming quite prominent. They had a feature on WrestleTalk on Challenge TV a couple of months back. IPW:UK also do some adults only shows and there is Triple X wrestling in Coventry who occasionally run shows. PCW have got 2 extreme shows booked for late September too.

PCW are bringing in lots of imports over the next few months. January's show has got The Young Bucks on it, February's show has Super Crazy, Brian Kendrick & Paul London. April's show has Tommy Dreamer, Kevin Steen & Johnny Gargano. And May's show has the Steiner Brothers, Dustin Rhodes & supposedly Bobby Lashley.

I heard Lashley was being a bit of a bad booking so they stepped away from him? May have changed since though.

I'm more interesting in an adults only even than any at the minute, just to see how they go about it.

Bit more has come out about HXC. First show is on 7th April at The Zoo in Manchester. The roster is filling out with the likes of T-Bone, Stixx, CZW's Clint Margera & Danny Havoc. They've also got something called the Angels of Death which from what I gather are bikini-clad babes who mingle with the clientele.

I hope HxC Wrestling do something more creative with the adults only tag than giving the talent free rein to swear & offend.

The majority of it is going to be hardcore/deathmatch wrestling. I think the debut show is going to be called "Brawls, Beers & Babes!"

I can't say I'm a fan of the type of CZW or where it's just extreme for the sake of it, but I must say it's interesting me. I think I will go to that one.

I'm fascinated by the concept as it has the potential to be cutting edge or the same old low-rent garbage.
