The indie scene leader and cult favorite brings its unconventional, MMA-influenced, take on pro-wrestling to the legendary Hammerstein Ballroom on January 23rd (But not before destroying Detroit and Chicago in a special “Road to the Hammerstein” package); The WRLD features an ROH title match with Jonathan Gresham vs. Blake Christian — All on FITE!
New York, NY (January 13, 2022): Game Changer Wrestling will hold The WRLD on GCW at New York City’s legendary Hammerstein Ballroom on January 23rd – live on FITE. The event features an ROH title match of Jonathan Gresham vs. Blake Christian and the first time ever match up of Allie Katch vs. Ruby Soho. The event will also feature The WRLD on Lucha with Team Bandido (Bandido, Laredo Kid and ASF) vs. Team Gringo (Gringo Loco, Arez, and Demonic flamita). With its outrageous take on pro-wrestling, and the promotion’s influence from MMA stars like Matt Riddle, Josh Barnett, Tom Lawlor, and Frank Mir, New York won’t know what hit it that special Saturday night. And this epic show has SOLD OUT, so be sure to Order The WRLD on GCW now as there are plenty of PPV seats available on FITE, anywhere on the globe. The event will also be available on traditional cable pay-per-view in the US.
“We’re proud to kick off the new year with these shows, including The WRLD on GCW at the Hammerstein, the biggest event we’ve done yet.” said GCW promoter Brett Lauderdale. “We’ve got notoriety, the best fans, and FITE on our side, and we’re going to keep adding more as we move through the year going to awesome venues like this giving people the authenticity they want from wrestling.”
Leading up to The WRLD is the two part Road to the Hammerstein with GCW wrecking things in Detroit on January 14th with GCW: Most Notorious and then Chicago on the 15th with GCW: Say You Will. Both events are available individually or in a combo deal on FITE here.
GCW: Most Notorious features the Ultraviolent Championship with Alex Colon taking on Hoodfoot. The night will also pit Atticus against Justice, Alex Shelley against Jimmy Jacobs, Bussy against 2 Cold Scorpio & Ricky Morton, Matt Cardona vs. Rhino, Deepen vs. Dark Sheik, and Rich Swann vs. Leon Ruff.

“The importance of Game Changer Wrestling presenting this stellar event at the Hammerstein Ballroom cannot be overstated,” said Michael Weber, COO of FITE. “The building has held pivotal events from ECW, ROH and NJPW wrestling, as well being a favored venue of bands like Iron Maiden, Guns ‘n Roses, and Jane’s Addiction. Howard Stern even held his 60th birthday party at the ballroom. Now, The WRLD on GCW is going to leave a mark on that room–I guarantee it.”
