Re: ICW (Scotland)

I get the impression that BBC will be filming these events for a documentary, which has been confirmed, to air in the the run of to the event proposed by Frankie Boyle to take place next year. Would make sense.

probably right but if you watched that clip they just posted on Youtube, their owner mentioned getting a suit and shaving for the BBC. I'm sure he was in character, talking about selling out.

But I thought it could also have something to do with having a BBC show. I mean, one documentary doesn't mean you've hit the big time right?

So I'm hoping it could really big a tv show, from what I hear things aren't so repressed when it comes to TV in the UK right? Not as much as in America anyway. I saw Robert Webb's junk on that mitchel and webb look so I'm thinking ICW won't have to tone things down so much?

Anyway, you're probably right, too much to ask for.

Re: ICW (Scotland)

I saw the clip, which they would only be allowed to post after cleared by BBC. I think the point was to put over that Dallas is going to just be a character from here on out.

The BBC, especially BBC1, where Dallas said it's being filmed for, is a very tightly controlled channel. There's not much that you can get away with on there, certainly not someone saying cunt. ICW as it is would not be allowed to air on BBC1 as a fictional show, it just wouldn't. As a factual documentary though, you can get away with a lot more for some reason. Also, the censoring doesn't really hamper things in a documentary.

Re: ICW (Scotland)

ICW is fantastic. Only recently started watching it but the combination of the good wrestling and hilarious commentary is brilliant. I lost it when one of the commentators said "Davey Boy is so big and masculine that when he fucks you, you've technically been in a threesome." It's amazing.

Re: ICW (Scotland)

The commentary is actually one of the things that puts me off about it. There's no doubt it's a very good promotion and I'm proud that it's Glasgow based.

Was hoping to go to the big Edinburgh show but it sold out yesterday while I was in the planning stages. The fact that an Indy promotion has sold out a 1,200 capacity venue when that's about what TNA drew the last time they were here, is outstanding.

I thought TNA had a good British following?

They do, but not so much in Scotland. I'm sure it will be different the next time since they're doing a tv taping.

The biggest problem is that it's been held in a venue that's not that easy to get to and from. It's being held in the city centre the next time though, so that should bump up the attendance coupled with it being for TV.

Same. I'm pleading wae Dallas to give us Grado v Whiplash II without the commentary. The crowd made that match spectacular. No taking away from either competitor, but the atmosphere was like a 3rd wrestler in the ring.


Who's all going to Edinburgh? Give's a shout.


Also, fan or no, you need to watch this for a buzz:
