Kez Evans defeated Leyton Buzzard

Excellent opener, a lot of “buzz” around Buzzard, pardon the pun, given his recent wins at Shug’s Hoose Party (SHP), but it was a well-deserved win for Evans after his SHP loss to BT Gunn. Both to watch in the coming months.

Aivil defeated Angel Hayze

Hayze was very impressive in her ICW debut but was overcome by Aivil in a very good outing for the ICW women’s division.

ICW Zero G Championship Match

Liam Thomson defeated Gabriel Kid and defended the ICW Zero-G championship in a great technical match up. The title wasn’t originally on the line, but after some jaw jacking before the bell, it was on Thompson who retained the title in the end.

Iestyn Rees defeated Kieran Kelly.

Kelly did his best against the much larger Welshman. Rees overpowered him too many times and picked up the win. Rees loves waving at the crowd but Kelly has what it takes. “Underdog” chants all round.

Carmel Jacobs was announced as the new ICW commissioner, much to the chagrin of Christopher Toal, the Wee Man and Coach Trip.

Ravie Davie defeated Grado.

Grado used a more serious entrance, not letting the usual Madonna sing-a-long anthem belt out. Ravie Davie had a bit of time on the mic before the bell and ended up with the win after interference from Kez Evans. Stephen Purdon got involved on behalf of Grado and cleared house to the adulation of the crowd. Fear & Loathing mixed tag anyone??

Sha Samuels & Jack Jester defeated The Nine9: Dickie Divers & Jack Morris

With a spike pildriver, the crowd went home happy when the “Kinky Party” picking up a win. Double crowd surfing celebrations followed for those willing to hold Jester and Samuel up.

Andy Wild defeated Power Forward in a gauntlet match.

After the bell, Wild challenged NXT UK’s Mark Coffey’s to a 2 out of 3 Falls match at Fear & Loathing XI.

Aaron Echo defeated Alexander Dean in a good match-up. Echo answered the challenge once it was announced Ricky Knight Jr couldn’t make it due to injury. Was in a bit of a bad position given the time and placing, but did well and was a great match.

Wolfgang, Stevie James, and Krobar defeated Stevie Boy, Aspen Faith & Lewis Girvan

Great main event, reminiscent of the Von Erichs and Contra Unit from MLW. The action was everywhere and Rudo Lightning got involved towards the end.

Written words can’t do it justice but this was an amazing 6 man brawl live, capped off with a sequence of near falls that could match any live competition today.

Wolfgang ended up with the decisive pinfall but top marks go to all involved as it was a great ending to cap off the cap off the night with.
