The pro wrestling world can be a litigious place at time. A new lawsuit has emerged that might do some real damage to Game Changer Wrestling.

The Times Leader reports that a lawsuit was filed on June 4th against GCW by IndependentWrestling.TV. IWTV is suing Game Changer Wrestling for $500,000 over breaching their contract.

It is alleged in the lawsuit that GCW breached a contract that they held with IWTV in March, 2019. IWTV claims that they hold exclusive rights to GCW pay-per-view events.

IWTV alleges in the lawsuit that Game Changer Wrestling breached their agreement by streaming pay-per-views through another platform in December, 2020. Then they continued to do so another 36 times between December 5th and May 15th.

They are seeking damages “in excess of $500,000” for breaching their contract. As of this writing, GCW has not publicly responded to this lawsuit.

GCW streamed many pay-per-view events, including The Collective, through Fite TV. It was also quite a hot ticket on the streaming platform. We will continue monitoring this ongoing story.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
