AWBA: Upcoming Scottish Shows

Disclaimer: I canny afford all this!! I really canny afford all this!!! But what I can do is promise you full previews coming up shortly. For now, here is a huge amalgamation of what is happening for the rest of the year as of right now!! (PS... someone please pay me, I really, really, really canny afford all this!!)

It's been a cracking year so far, hasn't it? Fierce Females is back, Insane Championship Wrestling is on the rise, we've had Fergal Devitt, big Drew is back home. All sorts is going on, so here's a wee bit aimed at keeping track of it all...


The big news is Insane Championship Wrestling's "Everything's Coming Up Milhouse" month long event at the Edinburgh fringe. ICW were offering reduced price "Season Tickets", another groundbreaking idea from the company, but these have of course Sold Out. Some individual tickets remain for the shows, hosted in Edinburgh's Studio 24, and you have the following matches confirmed:

This event has SOLD OUT

Sunday 10th August - You Have The Right To Remain Dead!

Grado and Colt Cabana will also be there in some fashion
Tickets still available at £12.50 via Ticketmaster

Sunday 17th August - Suspect Is Hatless (Repeat, Hatless)
Carmel & Sara v The Owens Twins
BT Gunn v Red Lightning

In addition to all this, Colt Cabana will be hosting "The Art Of Wrestling" at Studio 24 a few hours before each show, tickets priced at £5 each via Ticketmaster.

If, like me, you can't make all the shows (I personally will only be going to Ice To See You - see you there), Breaking Baws are hosting another wrestling night at The Ark on Sunday August 10th.
