Brett Lauderdale comments on WRLD’s success and learning experience on GCW


GCW held its biggest show ever on January 23 as the promotion arrived at the Hammerstein Ballroom for a sold-out show.

The show made the most in GCW history for FITE TV and featured talent such as Nick Gage, Jon Moxley, Joey Janela, The Briscoes, Homicide, Matt Cardona, Jeff Jarrett, EFFY, Ruby Soho and Moreover.

Taking to social media, GCW owner Brett Lauderdale reflected on the success and learned from the show’s experiences.

Lauderdale did not elaborate on how he let people down or how he got played.

Nick Wayne was dropped from the show despite the publicity. He said his removal from the show was out of his or GCW’s control.

New York State Law Section 1015 said:

No person under the age of eighteen may participate in licensed professional combat sports, and no person under the age of sixteen may attend as a spectator, provided, however, that a person under the age of sixteen may be permitted to attend as a spectator if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Wayne is 16 but professional wrestling is specifically listed as a non-combat sport in the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations.

The show received mixed reactions from fans with Matt Cardona saying on Busted Open Radio that many fans told him his match was great while other fans told him it was an overbooked mess.

Wrestlers also noted that time restrictions played a role in the show, with the PCO claiming a highlight was removed from the ladder match and Lenny Leonard noting that video packages were removed.
