ICW return to the O2 ABC in Glasgow for a double header this weekend, starting with The 7th Annual Square Go!, featuring the ICW debut of James Storm. Always an eventful night on the ICW calendar, The Square Go! has provided the start to get some great stories throughout history. Who can go on to become the 7th winner of the event?
7th Annual Square Go! Match
Announced Entrants; Stevie Boy, Chris Renfrew, Joe Hendry, Mikey Whiplash, Jordan Devlin, Wolfgang, Joseph Conners, Sha Samuels, Mark Coffey, Jackie Polo, Lionheart, Ravie Davie and Aaron Echo
The main event for the show will see the traditional Square Go! Match. 30 entrants, 5 weapons, 1 winner. The rules for the match are simple;
2 competitors will start the match. At timed intervals, another entrant will join the fray, with 5 of them being allowed to enter with a weapon of their choosing. Eliminations occur by being thrown over the top rope, where both feet must touch the floor. The last man left standing will earn a briefcase, which they can cash in at any point over the next 12 months for a shot at the ICW World Heavyweight Championship.
Who will go on to earn themselves a crack at the championship?
Undisputed ICW Championship
BT Gunn (c) vs Bram
“The Oddity” BT Gunn will put his Undisputed Championship on the line against RUDO Sports and Entertainment Brand representative Bram. After his monumental victory over Joe Coffey at The Hydro, Gunn became ICW’s inaugural Undisputed Champion. Also on that show, The King of All Evil won a 7 Way Ladder Match to earn a title opportunity at The Square Go!, but only with the help of Martina. As The Oddity was getting set to defend against Red Lightning at a recent Fight Club taping, he was attacked by a man who we all thought was Bram. Per the stipulation, Mark Dallas came out and fired Bram, but it turned out to be the newest member of RUDO, “The Alpha Male” Iestyn Rees. BT was beaten down and will surely be feeling the effects of the assault heading in to the title match this Sunday.
ICW Tag Team Championships
Rampage Brown & Ashton Smith (c) w/The Wee Man vs The Purge (Stevie James & Krobar)
Rampage Brown and Ashton Smith shocked the ICW audience on a recent edition of Fight Club. Not only were they introduced as The Wee Man’s mystery team. but they also took the Tag Team Championships from Polo Promotions in a matter of minutes. Brown and Smith have been dominant every time we’ve seen them in an ICW ring, and the win over Jackie Polo and Mark Coffey proved just that. Their win means they will now defend the tag gold against The Purge, who were victorious in a #1 Contenders Fatal Four Way Match back in December. The Purge have been proving themselves since debuting in ICW, picking up wins over teams such as The Kings of Catch, Polo Promotions and The Fite Network. Can they go one step further and become the new ICW Tag Team Champions this Sunday night?
ICW Women’s Championship
Kasey (c) vs Martina
The Women’s Championship will also be on the line this Sunday as Kasey puts her gold up for grabs against Martina in a battle between two of Ireland’s best. After regaining the title from Kay Lee Ray inside the steel cage back at Fear & Loathing X, The Clown Princess of Carnage successfully defended the title against Sammii Jayne to end 2017 on a high. Speaking of Fear & Loathing, Martina made her presence felt in the opening 7 Man #1 Contender Ladder Match, as she turned on boyfriend Ravie Davie to help Bram pick up the victory. After the pairing were victorious over Kasey and Davie at the recent Fight Club tapings, it was announced that Martina would be Kasey’s challenger for the event. If Bram and Martina are both able to pick up gold on Sunday, you’d have to imagine Red Lightning will have a lot to gloat about come Monday.
#1 Contenders Falls Count Anywhere Match
Jack Jester vs James Storm
Regardless of who wins the World Heavyweight Championship match, they will be forced to defend the title the very next night against the winner of a Falls Count Anywhere Match between Jack Jester and the debuting James Storm. Jester is no stranger to weapons-based encounters, having won the Jimmy Havoc Deathmatch Tournament back in 2016, where he took part in a Falls Count Anywhere Match, a 10,000 Thumbtacks Match and a Barbed Wire Hell Match all in the same night. Former Impact Wrestling and NXT star James Storm was originally set to debut the night after, but insisted on appearing at The Square Go!, with ICW management being more than happy to oblige. Storm is now just two wins away from capturing the ICW World Heavyweight Championship, another title to add to his ever-growing collection.
Tickets to the show are sold out, however if you’re lucky then there may be some people selling their tickets on the ICW fans Facebook group. The show will be available to watch the very next day on ICW On Demand!
