ICW NHB “Volume 21” (01.22.2022) (Wrestling Review)

ICW NHB

Volume 21

Newark, New Jersey

Jan. 21st, 2022

 

Singles Match
Clint Margera vs. AKIRA

A really solid back and forth opener. Clint and Akira went at it hard with both guys having their dominate moment throughout the opener. A lot of hard hitting spots even without making this a really bloody match. The crowd was also super into this one as well. 

3.5 / 5

Singles Match
Colby Corino vs. Brandon Kirk (w/Kasey Kirk)

Kirk and Corino put on a killer match here. Kirk bled crazy and both men were back and forth here. Colby with the stacks of thumbtacks in his back was a sight. An exciting finish too that even with the door not really breaking had the crowd going hot. 

4 / 5

Singles Match
Shane Douglas vs. Danny Demanto

Seeing Shane Douglas wrestle again was cool but you can tell he’s not in ring shape much anymore and he seemed to get hurt during a spot. Danny helped carry the match still when Shane needed time laying down to recover. Thankfully this didn’t run super long. 

2.5 / 5

Singles Match
Krule vs. Justin Kyle

This was pretty much what a real life monster battle would be. Krule and Kyle both had some incredible moments here. Krule flying over the chains was unexpected given how huge he is. The match started off so hot and the steam died a little at the end but other than that this was a great match. 

3.5 / 5

Singles Match
Casanova Valentine vs. Satu Jinn

A complete bloodbath of a match here. Satu bled with one of the best crimson masks I’ve seen lately. The crowd was beyond red hot here as well for both men as they went to war against each other. This was a phenomenal deathmatch and one I hope gets talked about for some time. 

4.5 / 5

Singles Match
Mickie Knuckles vs. Ludark Shaitan

A complete dust cloud kicked this match off due to how many tubes they used against one another.  This was a brawl through and through that just wasn’t fantastic. It had its moments in the crowd but when it returned to the ring it just fell off. I can blame a lot of it on an awful finish too but it started strong then got worse as it went on. 

2 / 5

Singles Match
Big Joe vs. Hoodfoot

Just a bloodbath of a match between Hoodfoot and Big Joe. Hoodfoot continues his streak of being one of deathmatches brightest new guys. This was just a lot of heavy hits, tons of tubes, and violence between both guys. While not every spot worked always they made sure to help keep the pace going except for the times they were outside the ring. 

3.5 / 5

ICW American Deathmatch Title Match
John Wayne Murdoch (c) vs. Reed Bentley

An end of a legacy in a deathmatch classic. Reed bled like a pig here and both men made the air full of spooky dust with how many tubes they used. This was a war and Reed went toe to toe and gave it his all here coming out with the belt in the end. The ending felt a little off or quick and also unexpected but this was a great match all around. 

4 / 5
