A WRESTLER from Saltcoats is set for an explosive match at one of Insane Championship Wrestling's (ICW) most anticipated events of the year.

Dylan Gibson, known within the ICW as Dylan Thorn, is set to fight at Shug's Hoose Party 8, an event which is taking place at The Garage in Glasgow on Sunday, August 13.

Dylan is to go head-to-head against the newly christened David C. Thomson, formerly known as DCT, and the match is expected to be a thriller.

Dylan Thorn's journey with ICW began in 2017 when he started training at Glasgow Pro Wrestling Asylum.

Despite having only five matches before the COVID-19 pandemic, Dylan's undeniable talent caught the attention of ICW, and in late 2020, he was brought into the promotion as enhancement talent.

In just over a year, he climbed the ranks and claimed the ICW Zero-G Championship, solidifying his place among the elite in ICW.

It's an impressive journey for someone many may recognise from his time working behind the bar at Saltcoats pubs like The Hip Flask and The Nonsuch.

Throughout his time with the promotion, Dylan was an integral part of The Manifesto group and wrestled in high-profile matches, showcasing his skills against formidable opponents like ADM and Daz Black.

Despite facing multiple injuries, including a separated shoulder in January 2023, Dylan's determination to excel in the wrestling world never wavered.

In February 2023, Dylan Gibson made a bold move, relocating from his family home in Saltcoats to Glasgow to immerse himself in the wrestling scene and have easier access to training facilities and his fellow wrestlers.

Since then, he has been training rigorously, determined to improve further and once again become a champion in ICW.

Dylan is considered one of the hottest young stars in ICW, has garnered immense respect and admiration from the fans through his intense and exciting matches.

However, this reputation has made him a prime target for David C. Thomson, the President of Victory, Incorporated.

Thomson, a former ICW World Heavyweight Champion, has promised a reign of terror on ICW until he reclaims the World Heavyweight Championship.

And his first challenge in this mission is none other than Dylan Thorn, and the upcoming match at Shug's Hoose Party 8 is set to be explosive.

ICW owner Mark Dallas commented: "Dylan has refused to cower from Thomson, and has stepped up to face the former World Champion at Shug's Hoose Party 8.

Can he defeat The President of Victory, Incorporated, or will David C. Thomson take his first step on the road to the World Heavyweight Title?"

Shug's Hoose Party 8, one of the most anticipated events of the year, will be held at The Garage in Glasgow on Sunday, August 13.

While all seats are already sold out, standing tickets are still available at Universe (here) for fans eager to witness the thrilling match between Dylan Thorn and David C. Thomson live.
