GCW continues to grow thanks to the relationship they've built with their fans.
Game Changer Wrestling is hitting up the Hammerstein Ballroom on Sunday, January 23, for The WRLD On GCW. So far, the show is being touted as the largest crowd to ever watch a wrestling event at the Hammerstein and it is a loaded show.
The Briscoes, Ruby Soho, EFFY, Jeff Jarrett, and more will all rock the Hammerstein for the largest GCW event to date.
Speaking to DAZN, GCW promoter, Brett Lauderdale credited the growth of GCW to its loyal fanbase and the knowledge that GCW will always put its best foot forward.
"People at this point trust GCW. They know that they're going to get their money's worth no matter what. They trust that they're going to get something that's exciting, unpredictable, chaotic, fun, and entertaining. They know that they're going to get everything we have with every show. We don't have B shows. We don't have B towns. We don’t have house shows. Every show we do, we put everything on the line. It's not just a saying or something we promise. We've built this credibility over the last four or five years. People don't necessarily need to see a lineup in advance. They know that this Hammerstein Ballroom show is going to be a good deal. I don't think there's anybody that could possibly think that we would come to Hammerstein Ballroom with anything less than our best. That's something we're proud of."
Speaking about announcing Jon Moxley's return before AEW did, Lauderdale said it comes down to MOX wanting to be in GCW and making sure it happens.
"Obviously, a lot that went into that, and probably parts of it that I probably can't talk about, or I shouldn't talk about, just out of respect to all parties. But I think the bottom line here is that Mox wants to be here. He wanted and wants to be a part of this show. He is the GCW champion, and he cares about GCW. So, you know, I think he's in a position where he's earned the ability to do a lot of the things that he wants to do, obviously. AEW most definitely respects that, and they respect Mox. It was unusual circumstances that put it all in this position. It's just one of those things. You got to call it on the fly. Of course, we defer to Mox, and we defer to AEW. He's contracted to AEW. He's not contracted to GCW, so certain things have to happen for it to happen. Mox wanted to be here, and here he is."
Jeff Jarrett, at 54, will step into the Hammerstein and make his GCW debut against EFFY. EFFY has made his thoughts clear on the "clout vampire." Learn more here.
