A new GCW Champion has been crowned.
At Cage of Survival 2 at the Showboat in Atlantic City on Sunday, Blake Christian won the title. The show aired live as part of the FITE+ subscription package on FITE TV.
By winning the Grab the Brass Ring ladder match at Joey Janela’s Spring Break 7, Christian earned the right to challenge the champion at any time. He won a Cage of Survival match between former champion Masha Slamovich and her challenger Rina Yamashita at this weekend’s event.
In order to pin Slamovich and win the belt, Christian took advantage of the fact that both the champion and challenger had already endured a taxing contest. As he celebrated his title, the crowd booed and pelted the ring with garbage.
Christian becomes the GCW Championship’s 23rd winner and begins the 25th title reign in the organization’s history. Only Nick Gage has won the championship more than once. His 988 days with it over three reigns is also a record.
Here are full results from the event:
* Maki Itoh defeated Janai Kai
* Matt Cardona & Steph De Lander defeated The Kirks (Brandon & Kasey Kirk)
* El Hijo del Vikingo defeated Ninja Mack
* Jordan Oliver, Nick Wayne, & Mike Bailey defeated Alec Price, Jimmy Lloyd, & Jack Cartwheel
* Ciclope & Miedo Extremo defeated Toru Sugiura & Tomoya Hirata in a tag team deathmatch
* El Desperado defeated Joey Janela in a deathmatch
* Blake Christian defeated Masha Slamovich and Rina Yamashita in a triple threat Cage of Survival match to win the GCW Championship
