When your in the crowd and you can feel that excitement rushing through before the show and the first match starts off as a thumb War..I was disappointed It just felt like deflating. I also though you should have followed through with the cash in a different and had mastiff (c) vs masters..I think you would have garnered a lot more interest in the next show.

P.s I'm sorry about using the word cluster fuck..not to classy of me really
And we have spoke many times regarding streamers and bubblegum if that makes any sense to you
Well I cant remember ever opening a show with a thumb war and mostly show openers are cruiserweight matches. If you mean the last show where Mastiff arrived at 7pm due to M6 traffic so Rayne and Noam were sent on to delay things then I didn't watch it. Your annoyed at the cash in? perfect its what we wanted so thank you.

I do know who you are and you are a big fan of Japanese wrestling but when I see posts like yours it makes me want to book more ex WWE type guys and less indy guys. I try cater for all but our market in order of popularity is nostalgia, comedy and action. Oh and I sent your order of the PCW logo wristbands out

Haha you horrible man and yes the bands arrived Monday excellent!

Also be carefull how many non British talent you book between now and the roh show, I'm concerned people will just be like 'meh we'vw seen this before'

Having seen them in action twice, Shug's being the most horrible thing i've seen (In a good way) Cheering them just seems pathetic.

I'm also certain that I saw the same twat who cheers Whiplash at SWA shows cheering them. Really gets my goat.

Anyway, wee rant over. More news. John 'The Bomb' has been told he can't wrestle by his Doctors so has been pulled from SWA Battlezone against Whiplash. However, it's been replaced by something I can't even contemplate at this point.
I saw the replacement but didn't see the reason. A better idea anyway. TLC match with someone who has retired? Yikes.

Re: NAK, I completely agree, they have done deplorable stuff. But Carmel hasn't really. We cheer for her because she is constantly overlooked, in storylines etc, and it is frankly pissing a lot of fans off. She doesn't do evil, she does promos that are mostly truthful, I don't see why cheering her is a bad thing. Would like to debate further if you want.

I was at the last one with Devitt, will be going to Kilmarnock, have a few of their DVDs, what do you want to know?

Just got around to watching Devitt Vs. Mastiff and what a match it was. I need to get around to seeing Devitt Vs. Cole from RPW.

I just hadn't heard about this promotion until recently and it is near enough right on my doorstep. Had a look through the card and matches which looked really good so I bought tickets to the upcoming event.

Was just curious as to whether their previous shows have been good quality and if they are a promotion on the rise? I was reading that this show has been their fastest selling event ever. Thanks in advance.

I'm sure it will be a good night, looking forward to it!

Well, they've been about for 11 years but only put on a few shows a year as far as I am aware.

The last event was my first one I attended as it had Devitt (for the missus) and Grado (for the weans). Prior to that I'd only seen a few of their DVDs.

In my opinion - the DVDs are of mixed quality. Great matches, sound and lighting can be a bit off. I have their latest one (the show I was at with Devitt) on order so will review it on my site when it arrives.

The live show was amazing. They have a deep roster of the best of Scottish and British wrestling. Jack Jester, El Ligero (I marked the fuck out, that was an unannounced appearance and I'd been dying to see him live but he doesn't do ICW), Kid Fite, Marty Scurll (though he was injured), Bad Bones, James Scott, Grado, Liam Thomson, Kay Lee Ray, Carmel, it's all good.

Although some of their roster are ICW stalwarts, their personas at BCW are brilliant and perfectly fit the "family" atmosphere. I've been to a couple of "family" shows but BCW has been the best for my kids (ages 4 and 6). Still plenty there that me and the girlfriend enjoyed of course.

All in all, I'd recommend them, based off the one live event and couple of DVDs I've experienced. They aren't a new company, and aren't shy at bringing in outside talent (Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase guest booked a show) while showcasing the true best of British at the same time.

That sounds ideal, thanks for the detailed response. I do not have any kids but I was aware it was a family friendly company and I'm sure it will have something for everyone. The roster looks excellent so I'm looking forward to it.

I've really enjoyed reading your blog by the way. I've only really discovered the local Indy wrestling scene in the last couple of months and it's been really useful for reading up on past/current events and wrestlers. After doing a bit of reading and watching 'ICW Worldwide' and countless other matches, I'm attending the BCW event as well as ICW events in Sept and Nov. Looking forward to the next couple of months. Depending on work commitments and stuff I might try and get to one or two more events that you have detailed in your blog.

Watched a couple of El Ligero matches and would really like to see him, was aware he doesn't wrestle for ICW but I'll keep my eyes open for future events.

What british wrestlers do people think will be on the upcoming series of TNA british bootcamp?

From a scottish perspective i know Noam Dar, Nikki Storm and Kay Lee Ray were at the tryouts on tuesday Also Jeremy Borash from TNA was at the ICW show on sunday 10/08/2014, where he spent a lot of time sitting with Jack Jester (Dont know if they were talking about TNA could have just been having a drink together.)
