Chris Dickinson will no longer be appearing for ICW New York.
Dickinson was originally scheduled to face Tony Deppen on June 27 at ICW No Holds Barred Vol 2: Deathmatch Drive-In and booked for the Volume 3 on July 4, but Dickinson informed the company he would not be able to make the July 4 event with the reason being he "couldn't do that to the home team." Game Changer Wrestling is set to hold an event on July 4 as well.
As a result of Dickinson's decision, ICW has announced that they have parted ways professionally.
CARD SUBJECT TO CHANGE--— ICW: No Holds Barred (@ICWNEWYORK) June 9, 2020
We were informed by Dickinson that he can no longer make the July 4th NHB event because he “can’t do that to the home team” so we have decided to part ways with Chris professionally for now and wish him and his team the best.

ICW has since replaced Dickinson with Dominic Garrini in the bout against Deppen.
Dickinson posted the following statement on the matter:
Sorry for the inconvenience and I apologize to everyone who was looking forward to the 20th especially Tony. Again if you’re bothered with me over it I apologize but it’s my decision. Best of luck to everyone on the shows and the company in the future.— Chris Dickinson (@DirtyDickinson) June 9, 2020
Though Dickinson referred to June 20, the ICW event is on June 27.
GCW is set to host Backyard Wrestling 2 on July 4, though no matches have been announced for the event.
