Yesterday the future of the major independent promotion Game Changer Wrestling (GCW) become a bit more clear. They have signed on with the streaming service IndependentWrestlingTV to air 10 future shows. With a large chunk of their upcoming calendar shut down, it is time to rebuild and they are going to kick things off in a huge way. On March 19th and 20th, fans will see the second iteration of The Acid Cup.
The Origin Of The Acid Cup
In 2010, a man known to wrestling fans as Trent Acid would pass away at only 29 years old. He never made it big, with his lone WWE appearance being a match against 3 Minute Warning on Sunday Night Heat in 2005. Instead, Acid was a mainstay of companies like ROH, CZW, and Juggalo Championship Wrestling. He was an unsung hero of the independent wrestling scene, and well loved by his peers. The first Acid Cup was held in 2016 by GCW, and would be won by Joey Janela.
Game Changer Wrestling Has Brought This Back
Maybe remembering a fallen friend is keeping them from collapsing in these dark times, but now the second Acid Cup will take place in 2020. The official announcement is as followed “Game Changer Wrestling will make their official IWTV debut this Thursday AND Friday night at 7pm EDT when the promotion presents their two-day Acid Cup 2 tournament. The shows are closed to the public and will stream LIVE exclusively on IWTV from an undisclosed location.”
This will be the first empty arena shows for GCW, and there were some names tagged in the announcement and are expected to be involved. These include Jimmy Lloyd, Ophidian, Allie Kat, Chris Dickinson, Matthew Justice, and Jordan Oliver. Previous winner & current AEW Star Joey Janela is set to be on commentary for both nights. These are going to be two chaotic nights of action. They should help to take fans minds off the safety of their close friends and family for a while as the stars of GCW will go to war. GCW has set up an IndieGoGo page to get donations for this show to help pay the talent. IWTV has also offered a promo code of GameChanger to let as many fans as possible watch these events.
