It'd be nice if STV Glasgow picks it up, question is do they aim for a family audience or for the over 18 crowd?

Then Chris Benoit makes a return to.......[snip!]

Got to be the over 18 crowd - it wouldn't be ICW if they toned it down.

Supposedly the fact that Vince Russo is working at TNA again is what drove Spike TV away - they hate him.

Also, we're allegedly getting WWE Network numbers this week - should be interesting to see how they do.

Russo was working for TNA secretly, it wouldn't have been found out that we worked there if he didn't accidentally send a work related e-mail meant for Mike Tenay to Mike Johnson of PW Insider.  Duh! 


Also... *sigh* The Streak is over...  Sad

Just got myself and a pal tickets to the next ICW show in Glasgow on the 31st August, might be short notice but it'd be nice to see some of the Scottish GNamer folk there.

Here we here we HERE WE FUCKING GO!

Gutted as I'm not going to have any cash this month - needing to keep some aside for putting a deposit down on a flat and spent a fair bit on today's purchase too.  Aww!

I wonder if it's a seating arrangement at these ICW club events, or just buy a ticket and stand where you want/can. Do your tickets have reservation or seating numbers on them, Jaster?

It's doable for me. The only thing that would hold me back from going is my working arrangements or if I'm getting interviewed for something (or if it sells out).

@TCK

It's at the garage so I assume its just a standing only type of event, the tickets do have numbers on them but that could just be because they have to be there (I've had gig tickets like that before) or you are put into a specific area.

@Jay

That's a shame but having a place to stay is the priority.

This was also not long announced and seems like a cracker going by the poster.



I can't believe how quickly their tickets go on sale though.

Aye, flat takes priority but I definitely need to get to one of their shows at some point. They're really heating up at ICW.

I might see if my mate wants to go. I think he said he went to one before and that he had a good time.

It would make sense for Brock (if he wins) to change the belt but I'll believe it when I see it.

I think what's actually happening is they're scrapping the Big Gold and keeping an updated version of the current WWE championship belt.

I wouldn't mind that either as it saves the champion lugging about two belts & we wont get the stupidity of the titles being separated again.

That's my impression if brock wins he'll bring back his undisputed title belt.

That's Alberto Del Rio out on his arse:

http://www.wwe.com/inside/alberto-del-rio-released-26553840

Perhaps not a popular opinion, but I liked him a lot: he was always decent value for a good TV match. Still, I agree with the general concensus that he had peaked and was probably irreparable in the same way the likes of Yoshi Tatsu, JTG and 3MB were.

That frees up some wages. Bring back Scott Steiner.

Oh shit! That's a big one. An actual firing as opposed to "you're fucking useless to us". It'll be interesting to see where this progresses.

I can't even see this being the last sacking for now. It's always been the case that anyone not in the very top tier of superstars (you know, your untouchables, like Randy Orton and CM Punk) need to tread very carefully, but never more so than now. More cuts must be looming.

Wonder what he did though.

Wonder if he beat the shit out of another wrestler - apparently it nearly happened with the old Sin Cara and him.

I was a big fan of Del Rio as he consistently put on entertaining matches especially versus Ziggler or Christian, he was probably the last wrestler through the smackdown route to make a name for himself as well.

A bit of an end of an era with Ricardo Rodriguez no longer there as well.
