November 15, 2015
Report by Tony Cottam, PWTorch reader
Insane Championship Wrestling held their annual show at the Scottish Exhibition & Conference Centre. It was a legitimate sell-out of 4,000. They announced that next year’s show would be held at The Hydro, the bigger venue that TNA and WWE run shows.
Mick Foley was guest GM for the night; the only other U.S. import was Rhyno, and he’s an ICW regular.
(1) Davey Boy (w/The Wee Man) beat Stevie Boy to capture the ICW Zero G Championship.
(2) Joe Hendry & Noam Dar & Kenny Williams beat Liam Thomson & Lionheart & Doug Williams in a six-man tag match. Jimmy Havoc ran in to attack Williams’s team. Afterward, Carmel challenged Liam Thomson to a match at the next show, Square Go.
(3) Viper beat Nikki Storm and Kay Lee Ray to become the first ICW Women’s Champion in the Tournament Finals. Mick Foley banned any ringside interference and added Viper to the match, making it a three-way dance.
(4) Joe Coffey beat Rhyno.
(5) Polo Promotions (Jackie Polo & Mark Coffey w/Coach Trip and DCT) beat The 55 (Kid Fite & Sha Samuels w/James R. Kennedy and Timm Wylie) to retain the ICW Tag Titles.
(6) The New Age Kliq (Chris Renfrew & Wolfgang & B.T. Gunn) beat The Legion (Tommy End & Dante & Mikey Whiplash) in a six-man steel cage elimination match.
Order of Elimination: Wolfgang, Dante & Tommy End, Chris Renfrew, and then Gunn & Whiplash crashed through tables at ringside at the same to make it a draw. So, Whiplash demanded that Gunn face him one-on-one and the match restarted as sudden death with a pinfall to finish. Gunn pinned Whiplash for the victory.
(7) Big Damo beat Jack Jester.
(8) Grado beat Drew Galloway to capture the ICW Hvt. Title. Suspended GM Red Lightning tried to get involved, but was stopped by Mick Foley; ICW owner Mark Dallas counted the pinfall after a ref bump.
Overall, a really excellent show worth checking out on the ICW on-demand service.
