On Saturday, February 15th Game Changer Wrestling presents its latest event Run Rickey Run. With a title certainly directed towards the champion by the challenger for the GCW World Heavyweight Championship. Nick Gage is the lifeblood of GCW and he will unquestionably focus all his energy on taking out the champion. It may not be a matter of who is able to use overcome the animosity to win but rather who is able to focus on the title and win. In other action from the Showboat in Atlantic City, we have GCW facing Pro-Wrestling FREEDOMS in a one on one contest as Colon takes on Sasaki in another match fans should be keeping their eye on.
Joey Janela vs. Jordan Oliver
Both men bring with them not only a growing in popularity in both Game Changer Wrestling but all wrestling. Oliver is continuing to gain more and more recognition as part of the Injustice faction in Major League Wrestling while the Bad Boy is doing the same as part of All Elite Wrestling. For both men, this match lends itself a different outlet for each of them. While Oliver continues to emerge as a high-flying talent it is Janela’s willingness to sacrifice himself and all that is sacred to prove his heart. A great deal should be said for both men when it comes to sacrifice and this match will likely showcase a great deal of that.
Chris Dickinson vs. Jimmy Lloyd
The last time these two men faced each other was over a year ago. Dickinson defeated Lloyd in the first round of Masters of the Mat tournament as part of On Point Wrestling’s hosted event. Later in that night, Dickinson lost in the final four-way while Lloyd lost to Nick Gage as part of a ladder match. Since then both men have continued to carve a niche for themselves in GCW. With both men returning on a recent tour of Japan, their motive to rip each other apart is no different than anyone else’s on the card. Even though each man was part of a very special match for Joey Janela’s Spring Break 3 as part of the Clusterf**k Battle Royal this will something fresh for both of them.
GCW World Championship
Rickey Shane Page vs. Nick Gage
Bad blood and animosity are just two words to describe how these two feel about one another. To say that they would sheerly cut off the other one’s limbs and feed it to them is an understatement. At some of the most despicable times, Page has come attacked Gage. During a recent address of the passing of his brother is but just another example of his the sheer thoughtlessness that Page has for Gage. The saying never bring a knife to a gunfight appears to be how this match is shaping up. Whether its the concerted effort of Page to get under the skin of Gage or Gage’s burning desire to absolutely destroy Page the stage is set. Who will walk out the GCW World Heavyweight Champion? Will it be a case of Run Rickey Run on this night?
Mance Warner vs. Allie Kat
In a battle of spirit and angst, these two are set to put on a very fun battle. For Warner, he returns to GCW to face someone he hasn’t faced in over a year. While the two were a tandem in the ring this past August, it’s a different set of circumstances now. Kat lost a Texas Death Match to Gage and could be bringing that with her in this match against Warner. Warner, on the other hand, is coming off back to back losses in Game Changer Wrestling. Last month, Warner lost to both Tony Deppen and Rickey Shane Page. This time around something has to give as both lost their most recent matches in GCW. Who between them will get the better of the other? Whatever the result, someone is going to lose and someone is going to party!.
EFFY vs Tony Deppen
When the weapon of sass destruction steps into the ring with the eleven-year veteran in Deppen fans will be in for a treat. For fans that aren’t familiar with EFFY may not be aware that the five-year veteran has a remarkable skill set. His tools and character certainly standout. In fact, the Tallahassee, Florida native is able to balance stiff strikes with a solid promo work and a persona that stands out on social media. His character is larger than life making his presence somewhat of a challenge to get a handle of. For Deppen, his persona couldn’t be more different. An intense and menacing presence that will certainly stand out. He is hated by many which likely adds to what makes him so good. What happens when love and hate collide at Run Rickey Run?
Shlak vs. ???
Two of the most violent men in the world were set to square off against one another. These men had never faced each other before in a one on one matchup. However, that doesn’t appear to be the case this time around. Fans that are familiar with Shlak and Takeda knew that they won’t anticipate a match filled with wristlocks and drop toe holds. So with Takeda no longer scheduled to compete who will face Shlak? The question could be met with anyone and everyone that is part of the GCW roster. What we can be assured of is that it will be a fierce brawl likely involving plenty of light tubes. Could the likes of Jun Kasai whom Takeda teamed with replace him in this matchup? If viewers are excited by that description as to what will happen next, check out their match this Friday at Run Rickey Run.
Alex Colon vs. Takashi Sasaki
It was so nice they thought let’s do it twice. Only a few weeks ago, Sasaki defeated Colon as part of GCW’s tour of Japan with the Art of War event. In what was the final event of the back-to-back-to-back shows, the trio of Sasaki, Kodaka, and Fukimoto defeated Colon, Havoc, and Tremont. Once again we have a battle of Pro-Wrestling FREEDOMS facing Game Changer Wrestling head to head. One of the most intriguing things about this matchup isn’t the experience that both men bring to this contest and their technical skillset. Despite being proponents of the deathmatch this could be a matter of someone tapping, something snapping or somebody napping. Who between them could fall prey to this?
Matthew Justice vs. Matt Tremont
In what is the most recent match announcement to the card two beasts go to war with one another. When Matthew Justice brings a technical and high-flying skillset to this matchup, how will Tremont fair? The answer is ANY DAMN WAY HE WANTS! Tremont has never faced Justice before making this first-time-ever matchup all the more intriguing. For Tremont, it isn’t about having to outrun Justice but rather catch him in a moment of high-risk error. Fans are fully aware that Tremont is a noted brawler with a thirst for blood. He doesn’t have to match Justice in the speed department but plays to his own strengths. Strength is where Tremont’s key will have to be. Despite being slightly smaller than Justice it may not be a factor in the end.
