The ICW Zero-G Champion, Davey Boy, has being a fighting champion since winning the title back in November, taking on anyone who wants to try their luck against The Buckfast Barbarian. On Sunday April 3rd at Barramania 2 however, he faces his toughest challenge to date, when he defends the gold in a 6-Man Scramble match, with Lionheart, Noam Dar, Kenny Williams, Joe Hendry, and Liam Thomson all fighting for their moment of glory in the Barrowlands ballroom.
A competitor who is just as dangerous in the air as he is on the ground, 'The Buckfast Barbarian' Davey Boy is one of the most beloved figures in Insane Championship Wrestling, and has proven himself to be a worthy champion since winning the gold from his cousin, Stevie Boy, at Fear & Loathing VIII. Never one to back down from a fight, Davey has agreed to put his title on the line against 5 other stars at the Barrowlands on April 3rd, and while the odds may be stacked against him, The Buckfast Barbarian thrives in these chaotic environments, and Barramania 2 may no exception.
The 5 men who are looking to claim the ICW Zero-G Championship for their own, however, are all very different competitors who each bring something unique to the table. 'The Jewdi Master' Noam Dar is a former 2-time ICW Zero-G Champion in his own right, and knows exactly what it takes to succeed in the Zero-G division. Lightning quick, and employing a devastating arsenal of strikes, Noam Dar is an opponent that no-one can afford to take their eye off of.
The same can also be said for the third man in the contest, Kenny Williams. The young man affectionately known as 'The Bollocks' has already claimed the ICW Zero-G Championship as his own once in his young career, and looks to cement himself as a two-time champion at Barramania 2. Speeding around the ring at 88mph, Kenny Williams is always breathtaking to watch, and his youthful energy may just be what he needs to become ICW Zero-G Champion once again.
While some men in this contest may be known for their speed and agility, 'Bad Boy' Liam Thomson is a man who employs a more vicious approach in the ring. Arguably, the best pound-for-pound wrestler in the country today, the new King of Controversy in ICW may be extremely colourful on the microphone, but in the ring, he is as no-nonsense as they come, dissecting opponents better than almost anyone on the ICW roster. Could LT be taking the ICW Zero-G Championship home to mount on the wall, alongisde his many degrees?
Possibly the most hated man in ICW, Lionheart is a man who cares only for himself, and he doesn't care what lengths he has to go to to succeed in Insane Championship Wrestling. Having already held the ICW Zero-G Championship once in his career, 'The Bad Motherfucker' is as crafty as they come, always waiting for the most opportune moment to strike, before laying an opponent out with his patented Superkick. With gold locked in his sights, could the ICW fans soon be forced to recognise Lionheart as their ICW Zero-G Champion?
The only man in the contest who may have a strength advantage over the current ICW Zero-G Champion, 'The Local Hero' Joe Hendry has challenged for the gold on a number of occasions, but at Barramania 2, he is looking to make this chance count. Taking away all of the showmanship and charisma, Joe Hendry may be young, but he is already an extremely accomplished grappler, proficient in both Judo and Amateur Wrestling. Can he put aside his friendship with Davey Boy for one night, and take the ICW Zero-G Championship for his own?
Barramania 2 takes place at the Barrowlands in Glasgow, on Sunday April 3rd. Tickets are available now at www.ticketmaster.co.uk, www.triplegmusic.com and www.tickets-scotland.co.uk!
