When ICW fans look back through the history of the promotion, it's unlikely they'll find another tag-team match like the NAK vs. Paul London & Brian Kendrick war from ICW: Helter Skelter. Newcastle can count itself one lucky city to have witnessed surely one of the greatest tag bouts on UK shores, not to mention one of the most memorable title changes since the ICW Tag-Team Titles were formed in 2012.
It seemed for all the world like BT Gunn and Brian Kendrick were hell-bent on breaking one another in half, such was the ferocity of the kicks they traded throughout the entire contest. Similarly, both Renfrew and London hammered one another senseless, during a match which is already being talked about as a genuine classic.
The NAK would eventually go on to lose the belts, and have been impossible to deal with by ICW management ever since – which is saying something, giving the anti-establishment mayhem Renfrew, Gunn, Divers & Darkside have already wreaked on almost every facet of the company. Realising that the ICW Tag-Team Titles gave them more than a foothold of control, the brutal group were visibly devastated to come out on the losing end. Contrastingly, the fans in attendance went completely crazy for the result, already embracing London & Kendrick as the kind of duo they want to represent the tag-team division. The new champions themselves have been overwhelmed with the reaction to their win, describing that fateful night in Newcastle as 'euphoric'.
In huge news, a rematch has just been confirmed for ICW: Ringo's Despair at the O2 Academy in Birmingham. The new champs, London & Kendrick are already realising there is little time to savour victory in ICW, such is the ultra-competitive nature of the promotion, and the challenges come thick and fast. That fact has never been more prevalent than with this monster announcement, and it's clear the NAK will be salivating at the prospect of recapturing the belts in time for their epic showdown with The Sumerian Death Squad at Fear & Loathing VII next month.
For the Death Squad, this represents an incredibly tantalising opportunity; if the NAK do break ICW fan's hearts, and reclaim the championships, it means the upcoming match between the teams on November 2nd at the infamous Barrowlands Ballroom will be for the titles.
What will happen during ICW's debut show in Birmingham on Sunday, October 19th? ICW are no stranger to blowing the roof off any venue, but with the announcement of this rematch, ICW: Ringo's Despair becomes one of the most must-see shows in recent memory.
