Nick Gage signs exclusive, multi-year contract with GCW

The GCW Tag Team Champion will work less dates and remain with the upstart brand.

Nick Gage has signed an exclusive, multi-year contract with GCW.

Fightful first reported the news Monday.

According to the report, the deal will reduce the amount of matches the 41-year-old Gage needs to work while also keeping him in GCW. 

He is currently half of the company's Tag Team titleholders along with Matt Tremont, winning the belts from The Briscoes at last month's Wrld on GCW in a surprise appearance.

Company owner Brett Lauderdale told the website that he is against the idea of contracts in GCW, but made an exception.

"From day one, Nick has put his body and literally his life on the line for the fans inside the squared circle. He deserves, and has earned the right to be rewarded for 20+ years of hard work and sacrifice.

This historic contract will do just that, allowing him to continue his in-ring career at a pace that is beneficial to his health, while beginning to focus on opportunities that take him towards the next phase of his career.

GCW would not have achieved the level of success it has without Nick F'N Gage, and we are proud to be able to say that GCW will remain Nick's home for the rest of his career,"

A pro dating back to 1999, Gage became a cult favorite with a rabid following, detailed on an episode of Dark Side of the Ring last year. He made news by appearing on AEW Dynamite last year in a match with Chris Jericho as part of the Five Labours of Jericho. The match saw Gage use a pizza cutter on Jericho's head as a Domino's ad coincidentally aired right after.
