I have to agree that my fandom of ICW has gone down a lot the past year or so. I did enjoy BT/Bram but I was also going into that with very low expectations because it’s Bram. Also to be fair while Stevie Boy may not seem like a star he is a guy ICW has really got behind the past couple of years, he’s always winning his big matches and can produce great matches. But as a fan I have contemplated cancelling my subscription to their on demand in recent months and using that money to try some Fight Club shows.
Bang on with the ICW stuff. I used to follow the promotion closely a few years back during Grado’s run for the title, but they soon relied too heavily on authority figures, recyled storylines and a surge of uninteresting characters. I dropped out in mid-2016 and didn’t really pay attention to them after that.
As soon as you mentioned Red Lightening in your recap of Square Go, my eyes rolled so hard that I think I saw my own brain. Nothing seems to have improved. Oh, and using Bram in the championship match is such a turn off. Woeful.
If this were a game of EWR, they’d have been reduced from ‘Cult’ to ‘Regional’ by now. I do hope they can fight their way back to prominence though, as I loved keeping up with the promotion and attending the tour shows back in the day. They were actually the first indy fed who’s streaming service I subscribed to.
