Game Changer Wrestling (GCW) returns to PPV on Saturday night with The Dynasty, airing live on Fite.tv. A lot of American hardcore action, mixed in with the usual GCW surprises, an international hoss fight, and the GCW return of indie daredevil Unbreakable Andy!
GCW The Dynasty (12/29/2018)

KTB vs. Jungle Boy
KTB (aka Kyle The Beast) is a former Game Changer World Heavyweight Champion, but this year he’s had some troubles with smaller wrestlers. He’s had some close calls in wins over Marko Stunt and Isaias Velazquez and lost to Tony Deppen, Eli Everfly and Roy Flash Gordon in multi-man matches. Jungle Boy made his Game Changer debut at Joey Janela’s LA Confidential in a loss to Tony Deppen, so he’ll be looking for a win to continue coming back. But KTB is a nasty bastard when angry, and if Jungle Boy isn’t careful, it’ll be a quick loss in his GCW career.
Kikutaro vs. Orange Cassidy
It won’t be as brutal as the other matches on the card, but this one will be something special. As far as comedic wrestling goes, you’d be hard pressed to find two better wrestlers who define the craft in Japan and the US, and on Saturday they face off in what will be a gruelling contest of shenanigans and lethargy.
Markus Crane & SHLAK vs. G-Raver & Jeff Cannonball
Markus Crane and SHLAK‘s new partnership is off to a great start, winning their debut match together in GCW at Tha G-Code against The Rejects (John Wayne Murdoch & Reed Bentley) last month and they’re going for 2-0 against two men who tried to murder each other last month in a deathmatch at Tha G-Code. Either way, this will be a bloody mess, but it will all come down to if Jeff Cannonball can put aside the fact G-Raver beat him last month and work together, otherwise Crane & SHLAK will roll over them like a meat grinder.
Teddy Hart vs. Jimmy Lloyd
Interesting contrast of styles, as the veteran “Innovator of Innovation” (hey, if his uncle can be the Excellence of Execution…) Teddy Hart brings his all-risk offence back to his GCW home-ring against one of the new heart and souls of the American hardcore scene in Jimmy Lloyd. It’s going to come down to endurance vs. offense, as Teddy will have to endure the physical relentlessness of Lloyd and score enough lethal strikes to take Jimmy down before he can put Hart away.
Matt Tremont vs. Eric Ryan
Eric Ryan is a 2x Absolute Intense Wrestling (AIW) Absolute Champion and an AIW staple for over a decade while proving his toughness in promotions like GCW, IWA Mid South and Mexico’s Desastre Total Ultraviolento (DTU). But he may have bitten off more than he can chew when he steps in the ring with one of the new American hardcore icons in former GCW and Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW) World Heavyweight Champion, a man who, much like Marvel’s Incredible Hulk, only gets more dangerous the angrier (and bloodier) he gets.
Masato Tanaka vs. PCO
Former ECW World Heavyweight Champion and Japanese legend Masato Tanaka continues his US tour with a stop in New Jersey on Saturday night. On Friday he’s facing GCW Champion Nick Gage in Cleveland for AIW, but his next fight on Saturday is against “Not Human” PCO in his final indie appearance before heading to Ring of Honor full time. With nothing but pride on the line, these two juggernauts will dismantle each other in the ring and leave it all on the floor.
GCW World Heavyweight Championship: Nick Gage (c) vs. Chris Dickinson
Nick Gage is experiencing his best year as a professional wrestler in his infamous 20-year career, working a variety of indies from GCW to CHIKARA, Beyond Wrestling to Bar Wrestling. The GCW World Champion, Gage has fought off all challengers, including Homicide, Rickey Shane Page, Mance Warner, Teddy Hart, Pentagon Jr., Brody King, Sabu, and even former WCW World Champion David Arquette. On Saturday (a night removed from a war with Tanaka), Gage will defend against EVOLVE/Beyond star Chris Dickinson. Dickinson may be best known as a tag team wrestler in Doom Patrol with Jaka, but “Dirty Daddy” can hold his own in singles matches, with big wins over Brian Cage, PCO, Josh Briggs, and Teddy Hart this year.
