-Insane Hardcore Wrestling (IHW) X-Treme Combat 5 Pm
IHW returns with an alternative brand to IHWE. IHW began in 1998 in Fort Worth, Texas, with somewhat of a cult following. Hardcore Wrestling & Shock Television was on the rise. With Rodney Mack & Jazz at the forefront, Necro Butcher character being born in the brand, Regional Stars Canyon, Joey Corman, Samir, Dexter Hardaway, and The Colossal Kongs all coming through, the cast of characters & content of the show was a perfect fit with the late 90's wrestling crowd. This event will not be deathmatches & hardcore wrestling. It will serve as a different type of live event. Taping for a weekly series Insanity Online that will debut later in Spring. Fans will be treated to distinct characters, talent, matches from IHW in 2022.
