GCW Requests To Be Released From IWTV Contract, Promoter Brett Lauderdale Comments

Collective GCW

Game Changer Wrestling, or GCW, has publicly requested to be released from its contract with Independent Wrestling TV , also known as IWTV. GCW first posted the message on Twitter.

Game Changer Wrestling is formally requesting to be released from our IWTV contract.

This request comes with sadness and regret, but also with the knowledge that there is apparently no other option.

Thank you everyone for your support. #FreeGCW pic.twitter.com/xaD3rGV9YI

Then, GCW promoter Brett Lauderdale discussed this development in a series of Tweets. He explained how the company is largely an in-house operation that’s trying to adapt to its growth in popularity. He stated that reviewing contracts and handling other legal matters is expensive, so GCW recently had to hire a lawyer.

I know there are people that think GCW is a giant operation w/ a huge bankroll but we're not.

GCW is owned & financed by 1 person (me), who operates out of his home & has 0 employees.

I am a single father & small business owner that works 24/7 to support alot of people.

I have a small team that pours their heart & soul into everything they do to help GCW and they do it because they believe in what we are doing.

We aren't perfect and I/we are as flawed as anyone but we are actively working to do good in wrestling & bring everyone along w/ us.

Reviewing contracts and filing for copyrights is expensive and we've never had to hire a lawyer until recently. Our profile has grown quickly & we are working hard to adjust to these needs on a daily basis.
