Game Changer Wrestling has announced a 24-hour digital telethon event that will take place in late January.
Joey Janela came out during tonight’s Good Riddance pre-show event and announced that the promotion will be holding a 24-hour telethon called Fight Forever. The show will stream live for free starting on January 29 at 8 pm ET and will run through January 30 at 8 pm ET. It will be a closed set event.
The press release noted that GCW “will partner with individual talent to book curated programming blocks over the course of the telethon.” Matches and participating wrestlers will be announced over the next few weeks.
"Independent wrestling is built on the passion and dedication of its talented performers," GCW promoter Brett Lauderdale said in the press release. "Their sacrifice fuels our industry. These athletes need support, and with no immediate end in sight to the current circumstances, FIGHT FOREVER is a historic opportunity for the wrestling community to come together and have their back when they need it the most."
100% of the donations during the telethon will be given to the performers. Seed funding for the event has been donated by Orange Crush: The Journal of Art and Wrestling.
