Re: PWInsider: ICW is coming to the WWE Network

So if WWE takes over Japan, is it a wrap... or is it already done for the pro wrestling business, outside of the "E"?

If true, I may keep my WWE Network subscription after all.

Also just thought, getting to hear Billy fucking Kirkwood's commentary on the network will be a bit surreal

This will be huge. The fact that ICW will supposedly not have to tone itself down is even better.

Re: PWInsider: ICW is coming to the WWE Network

Very interesting. Not least because ICW possibly best captures the most British (read: Scottish) take on wrestling today, and I think they put on a much more engaging/relatable show than any other UK promotion. If WWE needed a template for a show in the UK, for the UK, then ICW is a much better template than something like 205 Live or the WoS reboot.

However, I'm not sure how American viewers might react to it... They might need subtitles and having their browser sitting with urbandictionary open could be a good idea.

If I was a fan of ICW I'd be scared right now because everything WWE touches gets micro-managed, diluted and over-exposed. They'll turn it to shit.

If this happens, I suspect ICW will run the same show they always do. WWE will use the Objectionable Content warning and censor some language.
Wrestlers with TNA contracts likely would be kept off the broadcast, until their contracts expire. I don't think WWE would fight or buy the contracts of guys they released in the past.

Is Grado signed to TNA at the moment? Would drive me mad not seeing him due to some sort of contract issue

Would fucking love this and even more promotions added. More exposure for the wrestling business.
