I'm from Glasgow and really need to get around to going to these shows. Looks like a great laugh.

Colt gave ICW a great shoutout on Art of Wrestling this week.

If ICW keeps growing at this rate, its scary to think what they could become.

Been hesitant to post here for fear of spoilers. Scrolled down real slow on this page, almost bailed when Blacky mentioned Jester, hee hee...

Do we have a spoiler policy in this thread?

Anyhoozle, yeah, I too wonder how big this can get. This is not a WRESTLING story. This is a PERFORMANCE ART story. I'm willing to bet that most of the ICW crowd don't go to ICW because it's a wrestling promotion, I think they go because it caught on from word of mouth. Kind of like wrestling in the golden era and in the 90's, I think it became a part of pop culture. Over there in Scotland, I think it's become part of their counter culture.

And that's why I agree with Professor Jones, it is scary to think of how big this promotion can get. 1,000 plus people is HUGE!!! Very few promotions get that.

Anybody know if a DVD is coming out or when World Wide is coming back?

ICW is going very well. However, it's getting more attention than it deserves. I don't mean that as a negative, because they are doing fantastic things. Wrestling all over Scotland is picking up and packing out venues. The atmosphere at the Edinburgh show was allegedly, a good bit less than it usually is in Glasgow. A lot of casual fans descended into chatting with each other for large portions of the show. I'm sure everyone had a good time but A few hardcore fans I've spoken too said that the casuals took away from the show a bit.

Not everyone is gonna be a hardcore fan and it's good that Casuals attended the event, hopefully it expands because of that, but as you said ICW isn't about the wrestling story. It's very much storyline based, which is fine, but I'm a mark for excellent in ring storytelling without pandering to the crowd.

ICW is currently filming for a BBC1 documentary, so I don't see it being a DVD release anytime soon. Fear and Loathing IV in Glasgow will be a bigger event anyhoo. They may return to Youtube in the meantime though.

Also, it's not part of any culture or counter culture other than folk who are/were already wrestling fans. It may become an entity like that on it's own, but it's a long way off.

I don't know if it's getting more attention than it deserves. This forum has a lot of threads that asked the question, "What's more important, the in ring product, or storytelling?" Storytelling wins all the time.

I'm not saying there's anything wrong with being nothing but an in ring company but most people don't dig it. I think ICW's handling of the medium deserves more attention because that's what people wanna see.

And I"m gonna stand by my thesis that ICW is creating new wrestling fans. Unless everyone gets 700-1000 people. In which case the scene over there is really on fire, and props to that great wrestling country.

Well, ICW isn't the first company to crack the 1000 mark in Scotland in recent history. I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with what ICW does, just that they've been more active in putting storylines over on social media and youtube, so it's understandable why they focus on that.

That being said, Whiplash vs Dynamite earlier in the year is one of the best matches of 2013. And obviously they have most of the top talent in the country working for them right now.

There are a lot of good things happening in several companies in Scotland though and Brookside has just done another week at the SWA Source wrestling school.

The next event I'm attending is the SWA Battlezone in October. I'm hoping we get Joe Coffey vs Mikey Whiplash for the title. A brilliant story that's been building for months now. I much prefer Joe Coffey wrestling as a face where as he is a Heel in ICW. His filmed promo's as a Heel are outstanding though.

I'd like to keep it spoiler free. Post your predictions by all means, but if you have inside info don't share it. I know a few people outside of kayfabe and never discuss what's going on behind the booking.

What do you mean exactly? Like in comparison to other Scottish/British promotions?

Yeah the atmosphere was a bit weird, but this year has had some amazing crowd moments that have came from a mixture of casuals and hardcore.

The acapella Like A Prayer during Grado v Whiplash II was started by a casual iirc. Team CK's turn at Maryhill was fantastic too. The crowd are a huge part of the show tbh.


Did you all attend the latest shows (Dave's & Something About Maryhill)? I'm glad to see the Maryhill show got a little mention in the Sun. I was expecting a bit more coverage tbh. The BBC documentary should go some way to helping that.

Re: the Youtube videos. This "season" ended at Terminator 2, but they posted Grado v Whiplash II due to fan response. The next "season" will resume after Fear & Loathing, I think they were wanting to have fans eager for content as I believe there will be a new DVD at Fear & Loathing plus the BBC documentary is ongoing for these shows.

Who's going to Fierce Females next week?
