Nick Gage believes in GCW.
While WWE, AEW, IMPACT Wrestling, ROH, and MLW have television deals and weekly shows, GCW can be found running special weekend events on FITE TV. GCW has gained a hardcore fanbase over the years not only with deathmatch wrestling, but by offering dream matches and surprises.
Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Nick Gage expressed how proud he is of GCW and what the company has been able to accomplish with him leading the way.
"We have the best deathmatch talent out there. We have guys who can go. Before, it'd just be a bunch of guys hitting each other over the head, no wrestling involved, doing that stupid shit. We have guys that can go in there, wrestle, go hard, and they just like to use weapons and violence. GCW blew up and put it on the map. I feel like we're the best company going right now," he said. "I don't like to call us an Independent company no more, even though we don't have a backer and it's just us. I feel like we passed that and we're the next breed of the ECW way. Everywhere we go, we're selling the house out and tearing shit up. When I got out of prison, my main goal was to put deathmatch wrestling back on the map and find guys who love to do it. [Brett] Lauderdale found awesome guys and now look where we're at. People must love it because we're drawing big crowds every time we run a show. We just ran a show in Wyoming. No one is running a show in Wyoming. We're really proud that we're a traveling wrestling company and not just in one spot. We're traveling the United States."
GCW has seen a boost in popularity in 2021 thanks to surprise appearances by Jon Moxley and Matt Cardona.
The company is set to hold arguably its biggest match of all time at GCW Homecoming on July 24 when Gage puts the GCW World Title on the line against Cardona.
