Speaking with WrestlingInc, Alex explained how GCW owner Brett Lauderdale was one of the first people he called.
“It came as a shock, but within five minutes, I was on the phone with anyone who would answer. I was like, ‘Okay, thanks,’ hung up. First of all, called William Regal, told him, 'Thank you.' He was who brought me in. I immediately just started calling promoter after promoter and getting things going, hit the ground running. Brett Lauderdale (GCW owner) was definitely on the shortlist.”
