As was revealed on the return episode of Insane Championship Wrestling‘s (ICW) weekly Fight Club show, available now on the WWE Network, the first contender to Noam Dar‘s ICW World Heavyweight Championship will be decided via the inaugural Lionheart League Tournament.
The tournament will be broken down into four blocks of four competitors each. Each wrestler will face everyone in their own block once with a 20-minute time limit attached to each contest. Two points will be awarded for a victory, one for a draw, and zero for a loss. The two highest-scoring performers from each block will advance to the quarterfinals, as the tournament then enters a single-elimination stage. Whoever wins the entire tournament, the finals of which will be held under ICW Rules, will then earn the right to challenge ‘The Scottish Supernova’ for the ICW World Heavyweight Championship at a later date.
Already confirmed for the tournament are the four entrants in blocks A and B. In block A, we have Grant McIvor, Stevie James, the current Zero-G Champion, Liam Thomson, and the man who lost the title to Dar at the 9th Annual Square Go!, Stevie Boy. Meanwhile, block B will comprise of Alexander Darwin MacAllan, Ian Skinner, Jason Reed, and another former World Heavyweight Champion in the form of DCT.
Coming out of week one of tournament action, Liam Thomson, Stevie Boy, Alexander Darwin MacAllan, and DCT all have two points on the league table following their wins over Stevie James, Grant McIvor, Ian Skinner, and Jason Reed respectively. Already confirmed for the second week of action is block A action from Stevie Boy vs. Stevie James.
