Atticus Cogar Says He's No Longer With GCW

Cogar would make an appearance at GCW If I Die First on February 5, but says he is no longer with the promotion.

"By no means does the booking have anything to do with my departure from GCW," he stated on Iron-On Wrestling with Gregory Iron. "Yes, I'm gone from GCW. It's simply because me and the office don't see eye to eye on the way business is handled. The locker room is extremely toxic for someone who has battled with drug issues. It's toxic for someone who has battled with mental health issues. This is all strictly my point of view, I'm not speaking for anyone else in Game Changer Wrestling locker room. If others don't feel that way, that's on them and that's fine. It got to the point where my mental health is bad and I was doing every GCW show, and I was very loyal for the exposure and Brett, it got me to where I am today. I'm very thankful and grateful for that. We didn't get along towards the end. My ultimate goal in pro wrestling is to be able to make a living off pro wrestling. Wth my new opportunities, I'm able to do that. If I stayed in GCW, which I like wrestling for GCW, so I'm not going to bash them as a company running shows, it just got to a point where I wasn't having fun anymore and I didn't like being there."

Cogar continued by saying, "Another reason why I decided to step away from GCW is, I didn't like how the people who I was close to were treated. I didn't like how Rickey (Shane Page) was treated and I didn't like the way everything went about after WarGames. It's not my business to speak on and I won't. I didn't like it. Eddie Only still hasn't been paid for Hammerstein. There are little things like that. People were being disrespected. I didn't agree with that and the way things were handled in that aspect."

Gregory Iron noted that he could see how those guys were angry as they bled buckets for the company, and didn't want to look like he was complaining as he wanted to do his part and contribute.

Cogar is now involved with Circle Six. The promotion will hold its debut event on March 19. You can learn more by clicking here.
