Entrants for the Square Go and Matches Announced
Ahead of ICW’s huge Square Go show, which will take place on January 24th at the Barralands, Glasgow, there have already been some names announced to take place in the main match, which is a 30 man over the top rope Royal Rumble match where the winner will receive the Square Go briefcase, guaranteeing them a shot at the ICW World Heavyweight Championship at some point during the next twelve months.
Due to enter the match is Joe Coffey, who has opted to enter the match as entrant number 1. Also confirmed as an entrant is Michael Chase.
Also confirmed as a main event for the evening we will finally see future Podcast Corner guest Chris Renfrew cash in his Square Go briefcase on the final day before it expires, against the ICW World Heavyweight Champion Grado.
PLUS we will see a grudge match as the Pimpebomb Prince Carmel takes on her ex-boyfriend Liam Thomson. After her shocking return at last year’s Fear and Loathing VIII show and their confrontation on the first ever edition of the LT Degree, this one promises to be an all-out war.
Tickets for the Square Go are still available via Ticketmaster.Co.Uk priced £20 (plus a £2.50 booking fee) so make sure you get yours before they sell out!

A Night of Comedy and Wrestling in aid of the John Hartson Foundation
On Friday January 22nd ICW are putting on a special comedy and wrestling show in aid of the John Hartson Foundation in the Grand Ballroom of the Glasgow City Hotel.
For those who are not aware the John Hartson Foundation was set up in 2010, after Welsh footballer John Hartson was diagnosed with testicular cancer. The aim of the foundation is to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of testicular cancer, thereby encouraging men to seek medical attention leading to vital early detection and diagnosis.
It also aims to preserve and protect the health of patients suffering from testicular cancer by providing and assisting in the provision of facilities and support services not normally provided by statutory authorities, as well as relieve the distress of cancer sufferers and their families by assisting in the provision of counselling and support services.
Tickets are priced £49.99 per person or £450 for a table of 10. Individual tickets for the night can be purchased here by completing the secure form at the bottom of the page.
Guests will enjoy drinks on arrival, a three-course meal, then the show which will see ICW’s top wrestlers take provide the night’s entertainment. There will also be the chance to grab some top auction items and raffle prizes. It’s the perfect Christmas present for wrestling fans so don’t delay and book your tickets now.
For more information and to book tickets head on over to the John Hartson Foundation website. Please note if you wish to book one of the tables of 10 people you will need to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your details.

Drew Galloway Has A Message For Mark Dallas
Since losing his ICW World Heavyweight Championship to Grado at Fear and Laothing VIII, former champion Drew Galloway hasn’t had much to say. Recently the former champion broke his silence after being assaulted by Mark Dallas on a recent episode of Friday Night Fight Club, costing him his match against Noam Dar.
Galloway pulled no punches during this promo and proved once again why he is one of the best overall wrestlers and promo cutters in the world today. You can check out the video embedded below.
Earlier this week I released my latest episode of the Podcast Corner, where I interviewed ICW’s Dickie Divers. In this interview we spoke about how Dickie got into the world of wrestling, how he wasn’t allowed to watch wrestling as a child, his wrestling memories, getting into the world of ICW, being a part of the first ever ICW Tag Team Champions as part of the STI with William Grange, winning and losing the Square Go briefcase earlier this year, what's been keeping him out of action and more!
You can also hear preview clips of my upcoming interviews due for release in January 2016 featuring New Generation Wrestling owner Rich Dunn, and with Insane Championship Wrestling star, New Age Kliq leader and holder of the Square Go briefcase Chris Renfrew.
To check out the interview, as well as my two part interviews with ICW star Stevie Boy and ring announcer Simon Cassidy, click here to head over to my Soundcloud page.
That's all the news I have for this week concerning ICW. Thanks again for reading and I will see you again next week for more ICW news and thoughts. Happy holidays, merry Christmas, or if you don't celebrate this time of year then happy December 25th.
