ICW No Holds Barred – Volume 30 “Ultraviolent Vortex” (08.20.2022) (Wrestling Review)


Volume 30

Death Match
Dale Patricks vs. AKIRA

An okay opening match. They just felt like they weren’t meshing well together with some moves. A lot of it came off clunky almost like there wasn’t good work with them both. Akira bled nice though from a gusset. 

2.5 / 5

Death Match
Orin Veidt vs. Tommy Vendetta

Tommy getting almost impaled with a chair was just nasty. This was a really good deathmatch, tons of back and forth action, big spots, and blood. Orin was gaining stream then covid hit and actions he took caused him to drop off some and Tommy has taken that spot as the hot new deathmatch guy since. This ended up being a match with two guys who can carry deathmatch for years to come. 

3.5 / 5

Death Match
Bobby Beverly vs. Otis Cogar

The Bev is one of deathmatches best and it was good to see Otis in a legit deathmatch since I haven’t seen him do much before. Really good bloody back and forth here with Otis holding his own and showcasing his strength throughout. 

3 / 5

Death Match
Eric Ryan vs. Hoodfoot

Honestly two of the best guys doing it in a non deathmatch or even hardcore dog collar match. I wanted to like this so much more even given the old school vibes but I just couldn’t get into this match. 

1.5 / 5

Death Match
John Wayne Murdoch vs. Justin Kyle

A short match that felt like it never hits its stride and ended a little early. Some good action between both guys but just expected more. 

1.5 / 5

Four Way Death Match
Mickie Knuckles vs. Sadika vs. Krule vs. SHLAK

This was chaos at its finest. A 4 way death match with tons of glass, blood, and insanity in every part of the venue. They covered the non covered parts of the floor in blood, the merch tables, and the crowd. A lot of fun here until the end where I’ll say the match took an awkward bump. Seems Sadika stormed off backstage to get into it with the owner of ICW NHB and it threw the match off a bit until her return. Still with that this is the fun deathmatch stuff everyone should watch. 

4 / 5
