Let’s Talk Wrestling : GCW “The Wrld On GCW” (01.23.2022) (Review)


The Wrld On GCW

New York City, NY

Jan. 23rd, 2022



20 Man Battle Royal
Ruckus (w/Robby Mireno) vs. B-Boy vs. Nate Webb vs. LuFisto vs. Psycho Clown vs. Dark Sheik vs. Steve Scott vs. Brandon Kirk vs. Thunder Rosa vs. KTB vs. Cole Radrick vs. Parrow vs. Janai Kai vs. Hoodfoot vs. Marcus Mathers vs. Juicy Finau vs. Charles Mason vs. Big Vin vs. Dustin Thomas vs. Yoya

A very mediocre rumble match. Some fun surprises including Ruckus, Lufisto, and Thunder Rosa. The match itself wasn’t great though. Some got their moves in to show but it was a rather uneventful match. 

2 / 5

Six Way Scramble Match
Grim Reefer vs. Shane Mercer vs. Alex Zayne vs. Dante Leon vs. Jack Cartwheel vs. Ninja Mack

GCWs standard scramble match. Everyone got their spot in and it moved constantly. If you’ve seen it once here you’ve seen it before. 

2.5 / 5

Grab The Brass Ring Ladder Match
PCO vs. Alex Colon vs. G-Raver vs. Tony Deppen vs. Jimmy Lloyd vs. AJ Gray vs. Jordan Oliver

A fun ladder match with some good spots and some painful botch ones. PCO as usual just does some insane things given his age. This was a good opener, nothing spectacular but entertaining for sure. Towards the end you can tell guys were getting tired and it started lacking for sure. 

2.5 / 5

Six Man Tag Team Match
Team Bandido (ASF, Bandido & Laredo Kid) vs. Team Gringo (Arez, Demonic Flamita & Gringo Loco)

This was a clear as day chance to showcase lucha. Non stop good spots here showcasing some of the best lucha guys on the Indies. Bandido here really helped hold it together too and Gringo as always shines in these. 

4 / 5

Singles Match
Lio Rush vs. Blake Christian

While not always the biggest fan of either of these guys this match was actually pretty solid. Blake had some great spots here and Lio helped pull them off. While being a match we’ve seen before this had its moments to help it stay fresh. With a few minutes shaved it might have been a bit better. 

2.5 / 5

Singles Match
Matt Cardona (w/Chelsea Green) vs. Joey Janela (w/Marko Stunt & Sam Stackhouse)

Started off as a really fun match between Cardona and Janela. Chelsea interference moments worked with the story they had going. It reached the point though with his “lawyer” coming out where it become interference city and just goofy for mocking other companies sake. It just became too many dumb moments and run ins. The ending made up for it but those other ones just made the match drag on. 

3 / 5

Singles Match
Ruby Soho vs. Allie Katch

For Allie being such a big part of GCW nowadays this was a short and lackluster match. They ran through it pretty quickly and Allie almost seemed to not be able to hold her own with Ruby. Both sort of deserved better here.

1.5 / 5

Singles Match
Jeff Jarrett vs. Effy

The most pointless feud here. It came across almost as a joke. JJ looks for his age but this match just dragged on in its short time and did nothing for anyone. 

1 / 5

GCW World Title Match
Jon Moxley (c) vs. Homicide

With Max and Homicide both having long careers and having fought each other before I expected more. It never felt like there was a rhythm going on or that the match could catch a pace that worked for it. Both men came off rather unimpressive here and for it being a title match I just expected so much more from both. With some more time and pacing it should have easily stole the show. 

1.5 / 5

GCW Tag Team Title Match
The Briscoes (Jay Briscoe & Mark Briscoe) (c) vs. The H8 Club (Matt Tremont & Nick Gage)

es, Gage returning is cool. Tremont and Gage teaming up is cool. Fighting The Briscoes is awesome. This match was not that. Being in NYC it couldn’t be bloody anyway and the fact that they had barely a few minutes and just blew through it and ended in a fast count was the most anticlimactic end to a show.
