They wrestled last night at Kamikaze Pro, though Tom claims he's "only got two matches left" now.

The mystery team in the ICW Tag Team Championship Tournament are "The Rich Kids of Instagram", whose members are Aaron Echo, Austin Osiris and Kyle Khaos. It isn't known yet which two of them will face The Local Fire in the first round this Sunday.

My first time seeing them, and with any luck, the last.

Still can't believe they were once a popular act last year looking at them now

Was told the day it happened that Tom Irvin had a WWE tryout at the UK TV tapings last month and kind of hand waved it. But the weekend before last there was a lot of talk of UK workers being PISSED that someone was signed for their social media and not their Wrestling. Lots of WWE wrestlers current and former have repped Geeze on social media the last year and he's a former Lance Storm student.

Treat this as hearsay only and don't spread this everywhere as he probably needs go to through the WWE signing process and apply for a passport.

I haven't circled a square and managed to confirm it. Maybe wrestlers were angry about Joe Hendry/ROH but Joe is a respectable wrestler.

If they're angry about Joe Hendry they're just bitter. He's one of the best character propects in the UK. His entrances are great, he's also a good actor and carries himself well. To me he was Scotland's most assured worldwide success.

Kurt Angle has been announced as competing at Fear & Loathing IX at the Hydro.

Tonight's show has seen both Billy Kirkwood and Chris Renfrew be "fired" by Red Lightning - as I type, Joe Coffey's job is currently on the line too.

EDIT: Coffey won, he gets a title shot at Shug's Hoose Party 3 on July 31st.

ICW have signed a deal to air a one hour version of Friday Night Fight Club on the Fight Network, which means they'll be seen in Canada, the United States, Portugal, Belgium, Greece, Morocco, Egypt, Turkey, Angola, Mozambique, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, and other various European, African and Middle Eastern countries. They currently also air on Nuvolari, which is based in Italy, and is broadcast in four countries, and is already doing pretty good ratings in Italy. They just need the UK TV deal now...

I can't imagine the Middle East version won't be at least somewhat censored. WWE and TNA had a lot of stuff cut out from what I remember before discovering online streams.

Will be an interesting test of their fanbase from a price and technological standpoint.

So ICW have started following Challenge TV on twitter. Maybe a non story, but best thought I'd throw it out.

PPV price should never be more than the cost of a ticket into the actual event (£20.81 with fees. And it hasn't sold out)

Looks to me like a test for their big November show, but again, that hasn't sold out, and most people who would want to watch it will likely be in that building.
