To date, Zack Gibson has had 6 matches in Insane Championship Wrestling. Of that half-dozen, he has emerged victorious from 2 of those bouts. If that doesn't seem immediately impressive, try examining the stars the Scouse hard man has put to the sword.
In February, during ICW's successful UK tour, Gibson defeated Jack Jester. Then, on his very next appearance, he stood tall over both AJ Anderson and Liam Thomson. Jester and Thomson are stalwarts of the ICW scene, defeating them on any occasion is extraordinary. Those victories - along with eye-catching performances in multi-man matches elsewhere - have landed Zack a shot at the new ICW Zero-G Champion on May 8th at the Glasgow Garage.
The man who stands in his way certainly isn't the ordinary sort, it could be argued that Lionheart is a pioneer of pro wrestling in this country. What's 100% inarguable is that he deserves to be the new ICW Zero-G Champion. Outlasting the likes of Joe Hendry, Kenny Williams, Liam Thomson and former champion Davey Boy has landed him that bragging right. Also in that 6-way clash at Barramania II, Zack Gibson.
The Englishman must have impressed ICW management, because he is the one challenging for the crown next. Both men match up well physically, hinting at an extremely even game of cat and mouse that will be intriguing to watch. Nothing should be taken for granted here, Lionheart can't afford to take Gibson lightly.
A hated figure, both by fans and peers, the champ must be looking over his shoulder constantly. Those eyes have to focus straight in front of him on May 8th however, because there's no doubt Gibson will be looking to cause a mild upset and take the gold back home to Liverpool with him. Should he do so, Lionheart's pride would take a massive blow.
