Jon Moxley is the new GCW Champion after a surprise appearance on Saturday’s ‘The Art of War Games’ event, where a future match with Nick Gage was also confirmed.
Matt Cardona held an Open Challenge on the show, first defeating Frank the Clown and then being confronted by a group of druids led by G-Raver. The final druid was revealed as Moxley, who proceeded to hit Cardona with a Paradigm Shift and win the championship.
After the match, the long-anticipated match between Moxley and Nick Gage was confirmed for Saturday, October 9th in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
