beat the man you've got to be the man. Whether you like it or not,
learn, and love it, because it's the best thing going today"
The In-Crowd Wrestling Federation was set up by Daphne Pentonville
(a.k.a. Lord Humungous), with a mandate to bring back the educational
aspects of the grappling arts. The
ICWF was a breakaway from the National Union of Greco-Roman Supply
Teachers (NUGST) formerly known as the Union of Re-Amalgamated
Grappling Instructional Teachers (URAGIT). Objections to URAGIT's
Marxist philosophies, both within the classroom and in the wrestling
ring, provoked terrible in-fighting amongst the Union's various
factions and eventually led to a main breakaway group and the formation
of the Social Democratic-led NUGST.
Pentonville decided that
his followers would rather be members of a wrestling federation that
occasionally dabbled with teaching issues, rather than be associates of
a teacher's union whose members occasionally liked to wrestle. And
the In-Crowd Wrestling Federation was formed. These days, all ICWF
bouts are strictly wrestling affairs, although the various protagonists
can precede matches with lengthy educational lectures intended to calm
and enlighten their over-excitable fans.
The In Crowd Wrestling Federation will be
available in November 2005 and is the 10th set in the James
Jarvis-designed In-Crowd series. It features seven original figures,
including Lord Humungous himself. Check out STRANGEco and Amos Toys for more information.
