Current IMPACT Wrestling star and Former WWE Superstar Matt Cardona (Zack Ryder) is the new Game Changer Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion.
Cardona defeated Nick Gage at night one of the GCW Homecoming event at the Showboat in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Gage used light tubes and a pizza cutter on Cardona which caused him to bleed during the match.
Cardona and Gage have been feuding for for a month. The feud first started when Cardona made a surprise appearance last month at a GCW under a mask.
The finish of the match had Ricky Shane Page come out and turn on Gage, allowing Cardona then to attack Gage with a light tube, hit Gage with the Radio Silence, then pin him for the victory.
After the match, a very shocked and angry crowd threw garbage in the ring, striking a very bloodied Cardona as he tried to hold up the title.
Prior to Saturday night’s loss, Gage held the title for 100 days.
Gage is set to face Chris Jericho in a No Rules match on this week’s AEW Dynamite: Fight for the Fallen event live on TNT.
