Throughout their record-setting reign as ICW Tag Team Champions, Polo Promotions have taken on all challengers while spear-heading the 'New Division' of Insane Championship Wrestling's tag teams. Stating that title opportunities would be earned, and not given, Polo Promotions have forced every other team around them to up their game, all the while looking to continually grow and improve themselves.
While they have faced several teams on a number of occasions however, no unit has presented as much of a problem for Jackie Polo and Mark Coffey as The 55. While Polo Promotions are all about fair competition and raising the profile of the ICW Tag Team Championships, James R. Kennedy's bruisers are only concerned with money and power, which they look to achieve through violence and manipulation.
Since they crashed the wedding of Polo Promotion's golden boy DCT back in July, the bad blood between Polo Promotions and The 55 has been building at a rapid rate, with both teams coming to blows on a number of occasions throughout the Road To Fear & Loathing Tour. With The 55's Kid Fite and Sha Samuels now looking to take the ICW Tag Team Championships from around Mark and Jackie's waists, Polo Promotions have agreed to give The 55 one more shot at the gold on the grandest stage that ICW has ever had, Fear & Loathing VIII!
Having now held the ICW Tag Team Championships for over a year now, Mark Coffey and Jackie Polo have fair claim to being the most dominant tag team that Insane Championship Wrestling has ever seen, with almost everyone who has crossed them falling victim to their almost incomparable chemistry. While they may sometimes be controversial figures, it is almost impossible to deny the skill that Polo Promotions possess as a unit, with Jackie and Mark seemingly capable of adapting to the offence of any opponent put in front of them. With Coach Trip and DCT by their side, Polo Promotions march into the SECC on November 15th as the ICW Tag Team Champions, and will take only the very best to stop them from leaving the same way!
There is a very good reason, however, why Sha Samuels and Kid Fite have such a thorn in the side of Polo Promotions. Two of the most violent, dangerous men to ever step foot in an ICW ring, Kid Fite and Sha are brawling thugs who take pleasure in hurting others, and making money doing so. As part of The 55, and backed by The Black Label, Kid and Sha may look like simple muscle-for-hire on the surface, but never judge these books by their covers. While he possesses a mean streak a mile long, 'The East End Butcher' Sha Samuels is an extremely smart competitor, who can pick apart an opponent with ease, before mauling them with his almost animalistic rage. As for Kid Fite, he is one of the most well-travelled and experience grapplers that Scotland has ever, and is an extremely decorted tag-team competitor, who has picked up championship gold all over the world. Each bringing their unique traits to the table, and with the brains of James R. Kennedy, and the muscle of 'The Consequence' Timm Wylie behind them, could Kid Fite and Sha Samuels be the men to knock the current champions off their throne?
Months of tensions finally comes to a head on November 15th at the SECC, as Polo Promotions put the ICW Tag Team Championships on the line again Kid Fite and Sha Samuels of The 55. Will Polo Promotions continue their record-setting reign as champions, or will The 55 experience their first taste of gold, on the biggest night in ICW history?
