Nick Gage Signs With GCW

Gage has a contract

Nick Gage became the first wrestler to sign with Game Changer Wrestling on Monday.

The promotion don't traditionally sign talent to deals but GCW Promoter Brett Lauderdale noted The King Of Ultraviolence has "earned the right to finish his career on his terms."

"This is the first & likely the last contract GCW will ever offer. Nick has earned the right to finish his career on his terms w/ dignity & a focus on the future he deserves. I'm proud GCW can give him that. For the hard work, sacrifice & loyalty over 23+ years, MDK ALL FN DAY!" Lauderdale tweeted, accompanied with a photo of him and Gage giving the middle finger. 

Fightful Select first reported that Gage had signed with GCW, noting the contract will allow Gage to work fewer matches moving forward. 

Debuting back in 1999, Gage is very much a hero amongst Death Match wrestling fans, having performed in CZW for much of his career and then GCW after he was released from prison for second-degree robbery in 2016. 

Gage is also the focus of a Dark Side Of The Ring episode and he performed on national TV in 2021 when he faced Chris Jericho on AEW Dynamite.
