Suspended GM Red Lightning tried to get involved, but was stopped by Mick Foley; ICW owner Mark Dallas counted the pinfall after a ref bump.


-- Legitimate sold out and packed 4000 crowd in Hall 3 of the SECC (Scottish Exhibition & Conference Centre) the second biggest venue in Scotland.
-- Mick Foley as guest GM for the night, the only other import was Rhyno, who has a history of working ICW shows - no one shot big names to help pad the card.
-- Owner Mark Dallas announced next year's Fear And Loathing would be in the larger SSE Hydro - on paper, the second busiest venue in the world after the O2 Arena in London. This is absolutely HUGE for ICW, the same arena that TNA ran their televised shows from and that the WWE run on their tours now.
-- Show started on time at 7pm, no mean feat with the size of the queues outside when the doors opened at 6.30pm
-- Stars of Scottish TV police sitcom "Scot Squad" appeared after the first 6 man tag match and "arrested" Lionheart to a big reaction.
-- The Grado vs. Galloway match had a legitimate "big match feel" to it - there was an atmosphere like nothing else I've ever experienced at any wresting show I've been too.
-- Mick Foley's involvement was minimal, but he was well used.
-- Excellent show, well worth checking out on the ICW On Demand service.
