Jordan Oliver and Tony Deppen took the Fight Forever name to heart.
GCW's 24-hour Fight Forever event is winding down, but two men are grabbing headlines with their incredible show of endurance on Saturday, January 30th.
Facing off during the "Iron Man Block Challenge," Jordan Oliver and Tony Deppen fought to a 3-3 draw after the first hour. The match was then restarted and the men wrestled for a second consecutive hour. Oliver would win by a narrow 7-6 scoreline.
This marks Deppen's first time back in the ring since Ring Of Honor Final Battle when he lost to Dragon Lee in an ROH Television Title match. He was scheduled to compete at GCW 56 Nights but was pulled from the event "in adherence to GCW's Covid-19 protocols and with an abundance of caution."
In addition to this marathon match, Jordan Oliver also competed during the Jimmy Lloyd’s Up All Night block, winning a 6-man tag. Fightful recently spoke with Oliver. The full interview can be seen here.
GCW created the Fight Forever event to benefit Independent Wrestlers who have seen their work and income disappear throughout the pandemic. Fans can support the cause by donating to this campaign here.
