Triple H took over as WWE’s head of creative and that created a debate about the possibility of WWE forming a working relationship with independent wrestling promotions.

Stories have circulated that WWE has formed a working relationship with Game Changer Wrestling, however WWE is neither confirming nor denying the reports.

Sean Sapp reported from behind Fightful’s paywall that WWE is in favor of word-of-mouth advertising. This comes after GCW mainstay Joey Janela asked people to tune into Raw and SmackDown this past week.

For those that have asked, we did ask GCW about rumors of a WWE partnership. We were given a statement that indicated they’d announce their streaming plans November 1. WWE wouldn’t deny it but a rep said they’re in favor of people telling other people to watch WWE Raw. All signs point to this being a (apparently very effective) rib. Joey Janela simply said he couldn’t say anything when we asked, but we’ve been given no indications that the two sides are actually working together.

Joey Janela took to Twitter earlier today and hyped Monday’s episode of Raw by mentioning ‘Monday is his favorite day of the week.’
