At the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Insane Championship Wrestling will return to Scotland’s capital city for 4 Sunday’s in a row, for a run of shows collectively known as “ICW’s Flying Circus” at City Nightclub. After last year’s extremely successful run of sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, ICW will be looking to make this year’s shows even bigger, and on night 1, fans will witness a clash almost a year and a half in the making. For the #1 Contendership to the ICW Tag Team Championships, BT Gunn and Chris Renfrew of the New Age Kliq will go head-to-head with Tommy End and Michael Dante, known simply as the Sumerian Death Squad.
The animosity between the NAK and Legion is at an all-time high, and upon the Sumerian Death Squad’s return, they will finally have a shot at Renfrew and BT without anyone else’s involvement. While many others have played their parts in the war between the NAK and Legion, the root of this blood feud comes from these 4 men, who have shown no love for one and other from the first time they ever crossed each other’s paths. Now, with the opportunity to challenge for the ICW Tag Team Championships hanging in the balance, the NAK and the SDS have everything to gain (and, potentially, lose) on the first night of ICW’s Flying Circus.
While they may not have been seen together in Insane Championship Wrestling together for some time, the Sumerian Death Squad are a world-travelled team who have competed against, and defeated some of the top name on the planet today. An extremely effective combination of strength and speed, Tommy and Dante are one of the most feared tandems in the world of professional wrestling, decimating opponents in some of wrestling’s top promotions. Having captured the ICW Tag Team Championships in the past, the SDS will not let a chance to reclaim the gold pass them by without a fight, and their undying hatred for the New Age Kliq may only add fuel to the fire, as they come to Edinburgh in pursuit of glory.
While the SDS may have travelled all over the world and fought many different opponents, they have never encountered a unit like the New Age Kliq. A well-oiled machine, hell-bent on destruction, the boys from NAK country are one of the most dominant teams that ICW has ever seen, and they take great pleasure in dishing out inhuman levels of punishment to their opponents. The founders of the New Age Kliq, Chris Renfrew and BT Gunn are two of the most sadistic competitors in ICW history, and work together with an almost hive-mind precision, with one knowing what the other is constantly thinking. Can the NAK once again get on the road to gold by defeating their hated rivals, the Sumerian Death Squad, and possibly become 4-time ICW Tag Team Champions?
These two teams wage war for the first time together at ICW: I’m A Lumberjack Match (And I’m OK) on Sunday August 2nd at City Nightclub in Edinburgh. Tickets are available at www.ticketmaster.co.uk, www.triplegmusic.com, www.tickets-scotland.co.uk and at Ripping Records in Edinburgh
