Jeff Jarrett once again made his presence felt in a GCW ring Saturday, laying out Allie Katch with a guitar shot at GCW Say You Will.
Jarrett made a surprise appearance at the January 1st GCW Die 4 This, nailing Effy with a guitar shot. He was advertised for Saturday's show, but it was unknown in what capacity he would be appearing.
After Katch (Effy's tag team partner) had defeated Kylie Rae and was cutting a promo, Jarrett appeared and nailed her with his guitar, dragging her around with the shell afterward. Effy was not on Saturday's show, but this likely sets up a match between them at next Sunday's The Wrld on GCW pay-per-view.
Say You Will featured three title matches, headlined by Ring of Honor World Champion Jonathan Gresham retaining the gold over 2 Cold Scorpio. After the match, Blake Christian, Gresham's challenger next Sunday, came out to shake the champion's hand. Christian had beat former ROH World Champion Bandido earlier.
Also earlier in the night, Ricky Morton defeated Matt Cardona, preceded by Cardona coming out with the old ECW TV title as he claimed he was the new titleholder after beating Rhino (the final champion) at Friday's GCW Most Notorious.
Cardona, accompanied by Chelsea Green, then proceeded to throw the title in a trash can and ripped Paul Heyman and WWE in a promo. Morton later picked up the win after a roll-up but was low-blowed by Green before Joey Janela came out for the save. Janela and Cardona go head-to-head next Sunday.
In other action, The Briscoes defended the GCW Tag Team titles against The Rejects (John Wayne Murdoch & Reed Bentley), followed by issuing an open challenge for next Sunday's pay-per-view.
The night was headlined by a three-way deathmatch honoring the late Markus Crane as Jimmy Lloyd defeated Alex Colon & "Spyder" Nate Webb, now available for free on their YouTube channel.
