What would have been a matchup between an AEW-contracted wrestler and a WWE-contracted wrestler will no longer be taking place at Game Changer Wrestling's Fight Forever.
It was announced on Thursday that Joey Janela vs. Elayna Black is off GCW's Fight Forever. Fight Forever is a 24-hour live stream of shows and a fundraiser for independent wrestlers. Janela vs. Black had been set to be part of the stream's Wrld on GCW Part III event.
Fight Forever will begin at 8 p.m. Eastern time next Friday (January 29) and end at 8 p.m. Eastern on Saturday (January 30).
"So sorry to all the fans @GCWrestling_ & @JANELABABY for not being able to make the show," Black tweeted. "Some things kinda came up BUT it’s still gonna be a sick show so please watch and continue to donate if possible! #FightForever"
"NOT HAPPENING.... It was good to go, 5 min after we announced it, It wasn’t anymore lol," Janela tweeted. "I truly wish @CoraJadeWWE well, she has all the potential in the world and will be very rich! Just Unfortunately before she goes, she’s doesn’t get to wrestle the greatest wrestler in the [world]"
It was announced this Wednesday that Black has signed with WWE and is taking part in the first-ever women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Janela vs. Black was also publicly announced for Fight Forever later that day.
Black's new in-ring name in NXT is Cora Jade. She's teaming with fellow new WWE signee Priscilla Kelly (now known as Gigi Dolin) against Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell in the first round of the women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. That match will air on this week's episode of 205 Live.
