Preview: ICW Fight Club Tapings 13/8/17


With the road to Fear & Loathing now officially underway, ICW return to The Garage in Glasgow for another taping of their weekly show Fight Club. A stacked card has been signed, so let’s get right into it!

coffeykirbyJoe Coffey w/Red Lightning vs Martin Kirby

The main event for tomorrow’s show will see the ICW World Heavyweight Champion and RUDO Sports & Entertainment Brand client Joe Coffey set to face off against the returning Martin Kirby. The contract agreed by ICW management and Red Lightning says that if Kirby is able to pick up the win in Glasgow, he will earn a future shot at the World Heavyweight Championship. Coffey retained against Jack Jester in a brutal Steel Cage Match during night two of Shug’s Hoose Party 4 with the help of Red’s newest client Bram. Since winning the gold in April from Trent Seven, Coffey has been a dominant champion, setting back the likes of Joe Hendry, Jordan Devlin and Pete Dunne. Martin Kirby made his ICW return during the Square Go! back in February and has since been teaming with Joey Hayes in a winning effort against the longest reigning ICW Tag Team Champions, Polo Promotions. Kirby may come across as a comedy character, but he can certainly go the distance and earn a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship.

Wolfgang vs BT Gunn (c) vs Stevie Boy

BT Gunn will make the first defence of his newly-won Zero-G Championship tomorrow night in a huge Triple Threat Match against his former New Age Kliq allies Wolfgang and Stevie Boy. After coming up short in a fantastic Fatal Four Way Match for the WWE United Kingdom Championship on night one of Shug’s Hoose Party 4, The Oddity answered Kenny Williams’ open challenge on night two to not only become the new Zero-G Champion, but also become the first ever Triple Crown winner in ICW history. His two challengers for the gold know what it takes to become the Zero-G Champion, with Wolfgang holding the gold for 189 days in 2013 and Stevie clinging on the title for 210 days in 2015. Wolfgang was also in the UK Championship match and put in a good showing, almost picking up the gold thanks to his brass knuckles. Stevie Boy on the other hand took part in a brutal Dog Collar Match against Mikey Whiplash during night one, coming up short despite a great effort. The United Kingdom Championship match may have been fantastic, but this match could possibly be even better.

marauderscckHandicap Match
The Marauders (Mike Bird & Wild Boar) vs Chris Brookes

The current ICW Tag Team Champions will be in attendance this Sunday when they face one half of CCK, Chris Brookes. Originally scheduled as a tag team match, Brookes’ tag team partner Kid Lykos has been forced to pull out due to a dislocated shoulder suffered last weekend. The contract signed for the match says that if Chris Brookes is victorious, then CCK will earn a future shot at The Marauders’ Tag Team Championships. With Polo Promotions also claiming a future shot at the gold after defeating them at Shug’s Hoose Party, The Marauders look to have a busy future ahead of them is Chris Brookes is somehow able to defeat the two dangerous Welshmen by himself.

kaseyjamieKasey vs Jamie Winters

The new ICW Women’s Champion will be at The Garage tomorrow night as Kasey is set to face Jamie Winters in a non-title match. Kasey was originally scheduled to face off against “The Queen of Catch” Sammii Jayne in a title match, but she has unfortunately been forced to pull out due to an injury. As a result, Kasey will now face off against GPWA standout Jamie Winters. Despite being a non-title match, you would have to imagine that if Jamie is able to defeat Kasey then she would earn herself a shot at the Women’s Title. Kasey vs Sammii Jayne would have been a fantastic bout in itself, but young Jamie Winters has the chance to prove herself as one of the top female wrestlers in ICW tomorrow night.

poloskingsPolo Promotions (Jackie Polo & Mark Coffey) vs The Kings of Catch (Aspen Faith & Lewis Girvan)

Another huge tag team match has been signed for this Sunday’s show as the rubber match takes place between Polo Promotions and The Kings of Catch. Polo Promotions won the first match between the two at a Fight Club taping at the end of April, with The Kings of Catch picking up the win at Tramspotting 2 in June. Polo Promotions were recently on different pages, but have since put those issues behind them which led to them earning another shot at The Marauders and their Tag Team Championships. If Aspen and Lewis are able to defeat Jackie and Mark tomorrow night, that would surely put them in line for a shot at the titles. Polo Promotions, CCK and The Kings of Catch could all hold claim to a title shot following this weekend’s taping of Fight Club.

kinkylegionThe Kinky Party (Jack Jester & Sha Samuels) vs Legion (Mikey Whiplash & Chris Renfrew)

The Kinky Party will unite for the first time this Sunday as they take on Legion’s Mikey Whiplash and Chris Renfrew. Jack Jester came up short in his challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship at Shug’s Hoose Party, while Sha Samuels sent international wrestling superstar and TV personality Grado packing from ICW by defeating him in a Loser Leaves ICW Match. Sha’s rivalry with Grado is now officially at an end, so he’ll be looking to move on to pastures new. Legion had an odd night one of Shug’s Hoose Party. Whiplash was victorious over Stevie in a Dog Collar Match, before he was ambushed by the returning Jimmy Havoc who challenged Stevie, Whiplash and Renfrew to a Fatal Four Way Deathmatch at Fear & Loathing X in November. Lots of stories coming into this huge tag team match.

iestynkennyIestyn Rees vs Kenny Williams

Also signed for tomorrow night is singles action between Iestyn Rees and Kenny Williams. Rees teamed with his Marauders allies Mike Bird and Wild Boar to face Polo Promotions and mystery third partner back at Shug’s Hoose Party, but they ended up having many different partners throughout the match with Kenny Williams being just one of them. The Bollocks was one of many men who helped Polo Promotions remain as a team in ICW. The Alpha Male will look to exact revenge over the former three-time Zero-G Champion this Sunday at The Garage.

dctkriegerDCT w/Coach Trip vs Krieger w/Kid Fite & Lou King Sharp

The last match signed for the show sees DCT with Coach Trip in his corner squaring off against Krieger, with Kid Fite and Lou King Sharp supporting him at ringside. Both of these men were successful at Shug’s Hoose Party, with DCT and Coach Trip defeating Davey Blaze and The Wee Man in a Kiss My Arse Match while Krieger and Lou King Sharp assisted Kid Fite in pinning Bull James. Despite being signed to face Scudmaster Sexy, DCT has insisted he instead wants to face Kid Fite. DCT and Fite have plenty history between them, with the two recently being involved in the Team ICW vs Black Label match at The Hydro last November. Will Kid Fite accept the challenge of The International Sex Hero, or will Krieger head out to face DCT?

Also scheduled to appear tomorrow night are Lionheart and Ravie Davie. Lionheart will be there to address his upcoming match with former WWE, ECW and TNA superstar Rob Van Dam at The Hydro on November 19th, while Davie will be there to speak about the shocking actions of Bram during his Scheme Wedding to Martina at Shug’s Hoose Party.

Tickets are still available as of writing from, with doors scheduled to open at 6:30pm and a start time of 7pm.
