A fan-favorite wrestler is set to make her Game Changer Wrestling debut this summer.
GCW has announced that Maki Itoh will debut for the promotion at their Homecoming weekend this August. Opponents for Itoh haven't been announced.
The GCW Homecoming weekend events are taking place at the Showboat Atlantic City in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Saturday, August 13 and Sunday, August 14. The shows will air live via Fite TV.
Itoh competes for Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling in Japan. She's also made multiple appearances for AEW over the past two years.
In 2021, Itoh was a participant in the Japan bracket of AEW's Women's World Championship Eliminator Tournament. She also was in action at the pre-show for Revolution 2021, teaming with Britt Baker in a victory over Riho & Thunder Rosa.
Itoh returned to AEW for a surprise appearance last month, losing to Baker in the women's Owen Hart Foundation Tournament.
