The Official ICW Discussion Thread

552 posts in this topic

I made the trip to Scotland for the show, I went to the FNFC taping the day earlier too. ICW is such a different experience, never before have I been asked for cocaine at a show or seen so many people being ejected for numerous reasons. I've been to 4 ICW shows in total now, each time at least two people have been kicked out for throwing drinks, throwing punches at wrestlers or being dicks. I counted 8 people being kicked out on the Saturday FNFC taping.

 

But anyway, the show was great fun. I couldn't believe how professional the show looked, the pyro for the Black Label in particular was pretty amazing. TNA hasn't had pyro or drawn that amount of people in years. Thinking about it now I'm still blown away.

 

It's already been mentioned that there was some questionable booking, some missed que's and a weird line up schedule, but live the event will a fun experience and I've already convinced myself to go again next year. ICW did a phenomenal job of building this show and deserves a hell of a lot of credit for the work they've done. My favourite match by far was the 8 man.

 

Let's see if they can crack 8,000 next year.

I liked how all the Scottish guys went over. That's just smart business, but a lot of promoters wouldn't have pushed for that.

The crowd that ICW drew Sunday night was a bigger crowd than TNA has drawn for its last 14 UK & Ireland events.

 

You have to go back to January 28, 2012 for a TNA UK/Ireland show that drew a bigger crowd (7000 at Wembley Arena).

I dont think TNA ever used pyro over here did they? I dont think TNA ever used decent pyro ever. They only seemed to use that fart of fireworks for Jeff Jarrett and Kurt Angle. If pyro looks that shite, why bother using it?

How did something not go catastrophically wrong with that? Quite surprised something didn't go up in flames, let alone set the fire alarm off.

And yeah, it's also like how they never brought their commentators. WWE bring theirs over. It was only when they were at Soundstage 21 they had pyro. It's a fair deal of paperwork involved to have pyro and there's a lot of hard work to get permission to take the equipment overseas

I was in the crowd for that 1PW firework farce, to this day I have no idea how the building wasn't set aflame.

 

On topic, myself and the rest of the Royal Grumble lot did a review of Fear & Loathing IX as part of our show this week. Really enjoyed it; in fact on our Twitter poll it beat out Survivor Series and Takeover Toronto for 'show of the weekend'. Hope you give it a listen.

Bit of a kick-off at ICW in Manchester tonight with the Lionheart/Joe Hendry match (seemingly) being called off due to the two getting into a fight. Dallas came out to calm it all down. Obviously with it being ICW you can never really tell and it's probably a work, but it's all a bit odd. Video is here on Twitter.

Can't really hear what's being said regardless of it it's them in character or not at the start but the first time they're on the ropes, Lionheart doesn't look too pleased after a while. Could've been a backstage beef or something about that opening part of the match that didn't go to plan?

Was a comment made from lionheart at last fight club re Hendry real life gf. It was noised up on twitter and then seems to have become real instead of a worked shoot. Either way has lots of people talking
