The last time fans of Insane Championship Wrestling witnessed the skills of Zack Gibson, he was vying to become the new ICW World Heavyweight Champion. During one episode of Friday Night Fight Club in December, the Liverpool native formed part of a dangerous Triple Threat situation for then-champ Grado. Joined by 'The Bastard' Dave Mastiff, Gibson would end up failing to wrestle the championship away from Grado's grasp.
Ironically, wrestling for the top prize in ICW is something Gibson's opponent on January 31 desperately wants to do. Considered a prodigal talent by many, including ICW General Manager Red Lightning, Lewis Girvan is someone who certainly has a bright future in the pro wrestling industry. This presents a wonderful opportunity for Gibson, who will travel North of the border to try and prove that it is he who Lightning should put such faith in, not Girvan.
There are no throwaway matches in ICW, each victory and every loss means something in the grand scheme of things. Therefore, expect Gibson vs. Girvan to an extremely hard-fought, close and fraught affair. Both men are young lions who badly want to hit the heights both demand from themselves, and the ultimate winners will be the ICW fans in attendance.
Girvan was hand-picked to replace an absent Drew Galloway by Red Lightning during the Fifth Annual Square Go, and that backing is something which surely must have gone to the young man's head. For Jack Gibson, respect seems to matter a great deal, and he yearns for the respect of the ICW fans. Defeating a special piece of talent like Lewis Girvan, and thus shutting up Red Lightning, just may be the key to that particular kingdom of acceptance.
Gibson vs. Girvan takes place this Sunday, January 31st at the Garage in Glasgow! Tickets are available now at www.ticketmaster.co.uk and www.triplegmusic.com!
