A match between Joey Janela and Scotty 2 Hotty has been made for GCW’s Die 4 This on New Year’s Day.
The match was made after Scotty called out Janela on Twitter, who was disappointed his original match with Drew Parker was called off due to changes with Japanese travel restrictions.
“I heard it’s a little cold for baseball in Atlantic City this time of year, but I’m down to take a little batting practice anyways...What do ya think, Bad Boy?” he wrote. GCW then confirmed the match a few hours later.
“Welcome back @TheScotty2Hotty,” Janela replied. “First match in 6 years! Time to burn it down with The Bad Boy in Atlantic City!”
Scotty announced in November that he had requested and was granted a release from WWE, where he had been working as a trainer at the WWE Performance Center since 2016.
Also set for Die 4 This at the Showboat in Atlantic City, New Jersey is Alex Colon vs. John Wayne Murdoch and Calvin Tankman vs. Tracy Williams. Homicide is also slated to be on the show.
