Make no mistake about it, Big Damo is one of the most dangerous men under contract to Insane Championship Wrestling. Making the big man even more intimidating is his mindset right now, the mammoth Irishman feels he's deliberately being overlooked by ICW management, who don't see him as an ideal poster boy for the ever-growing company.
At ICW: Paperboy this past Saturday night in Birmingham, another beast, Dave Mastiff would come out on top. By beating Damo, fans started to realise that there was more than one monster in town, hailing Mastiff for his efforts. Immediately after the bout, Big Damo challenged Mastiff to a rematch at ICW: Alex Kidd In London the next night, emanating from the capital of the UK. Upping the stakes, Damo said the match should be a #1 Contenders battle, with the winner getting a shot at the ICW Heavyweight Title on July 26th, 2015 at ICW: Shug's Hoose Party II.
In London, Damo would leave with his hand raised, and the big brute is now the #1 Contender for the ICW World Heavyweight Title. Regardless of what happens with the title going forward, and no matter who is in possession of it come July, Damo will get his shot as part of ICW's 'Wayne Stock' festival of wrestling.
This is huge news, and it could be that whomever does hold the belt between now and the Summer is only keeping it warm for the Irishman. Few will envy the reigning champion vying to defend their title against such a fired-up mountain of a man, and this could be the Summer of Damo in ICW.
Speaking out on the announcement of his #1 Contenders status via social media, Big Damo addressed his audience with the following vicious outburst.
"ICW management does not want me as their World Champion. Its basic politics. This company wants to keep me down. There's no Damo tshirt. No Damo merchandise. No Damo on posters. No Damo interviews. No Damo in documentaries. No Damo versus the expensive American imports. In fact I am the last in line for anything promotional related in this company.
They don't want a man like me to have the title because I'm not a puppet or a Golden Goose like Drew Galloway. They know they need him as the face of their brand. TV deals, sponsorships, documentaries, whatever.
They have lined up easy matches for Galloway. Are they good fighters? Yeah of course. But they know that even on his worst day that he can win.
I have forced ICWs hand by calling them out publicly. I forced Drew Galloways hand by taking him down at Barramania. So in July, Drew Galloway gets his first real challenge. It will also be his last challenge.
ICW I will be your next Champion. Whether you like it or not."
As aforementioned, make no mistake about it, Big Damo is one of the most dangerous men under contract to Insane Championship Wrestling. This Summer, could it be that the beast awakens, taking his place as the ICW World Heavyweight Champion?
