The latest in the GCW vs. IWTV lawsuit.
Back in June 2021, IWTV, the premier independent wrestling streaming subscription service, sued Game Changer Wrestling due to a breach of contract. The contract in question names IWTV as the distributor of GCW events. In the lawsuit, IWTV has claimed damages in excess of $500,000.
The suit noted that Game Changer Wrestling proceeded to have a total of 36 pay-per-view events between December 5 and May 15, that “were a violation of the signed distribution agreement between the parties.” IWTV also claimed to have informed GCW that they were breaching their contract but despite that, the events continue to occur.
In the latest update (via PWInsider), GCW filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit on August 30, claiming that IWTV has failed “to state a claim upon which relief can be granted.”
GCW promoter, Brett Lauderdale further explained why the agreement between IWTV and GCW was not beneficial to the Deathmatch promotion over the pay-per-view format available on FITE. You can read his explanation at this link.
