GCW

They’ve been called many things by “traditional” wrestling supporters—including “outlaw mud show” wrestlers—but GCW is literally changing the game in professional wrestling and putting on some of the best events of the year.

Formerly known as Jersey Championship Wrestling, the new “Game Changer Wrestling” debuted in 2015 and the re-branding allowed the promotion to draw in an older audience as well as expand outside of New Jersey. GCW has continued to grow each year, getting national recognition with the first Joey Janela’s Spring Break event in Orlando. That card featured a wide range of talent and match types that highlighted what GCW was trying to accomplish. Fans were treated to technical matchups like Matt Riddle vs. Dan Severn and Lio Rush vs. Keith Lee, which were complemented by the hardcore “Anything Goes” Match featuring Matt Tremont and Eddie Kingston and the Clusterfuck Battle Royal.

Promoter Brett Lauderdale has taken GCW to new heights—and new countries—to showcase GCW’s appeal. In the past year, GCW hosted events in Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Nashville and Japan, just to name a venue new markets, with a return trip to Japan in February and a new date in Mexico this May on the horizon.

Janela and Nick Gage are the most notable examples of GCW’s ability to make stars, but they are constantly bringing new names into the fold to give fans a unique show. Spring Break is back for a fourth time in April as is Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport, both of which have become WrestleMania weekend highlights. New themed shows like ‘For The Culture’ and ‘Effy’s Big Gay Brunch’ (under GCW’s The Collective banner) are signs that the promotion won’t stop innovating or slow down any time soon.
