ICW (Insane Championship Wrestling) has confirmed its programming will no longer be airing on WWE services.
Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful (via Fightful Select) first reported that WWE would be discontinuing indie content on the WWE Network. Sapp’s comments were in response to a fan that asked about ICW content being marked as expiring on the WWE Network. Since then, ICW confirmed that its contract did expire and shared plans to broadcast unaired programming until its new home is revealed.
ICW’s contract with WWE has come to an end. We’ll be revealing the new homes of ICW programming in due course. In the meantime, all unaired programming will air on YouTube and ICW On Demand. A new episode will air on YouTube every day at 5pm GMT from now till Thursday 26 January. ICW On Demand subscribers already have access to 5 new episodes, with 4 more due to air by Tuesday 24 January. Our ICW Fight Club event on Sunday 29 January will air live on Facebook and YouTube.
Sapp also noted that WWE will no longer carry any independent content on the platform, and several of the promotions affected already had follow-up plans. Previously, several other promotions including PROGRESS Wrestling, wXw, and ICW have been available on the streaming service. WWE content airs on Peacock in the United States and as a standalone WWE Network app globally.
