Earlier this week, Game Changer Wrestling announced that tag team wrestling was making a massive return to the fray. The current GCW Tag Team Champions, Miedo Extremo and Ciclope, have been absent from the promotion since August of last year. The champions experienced VISA complications and have worked primarily in Mexico since. In GCW’s efforts to revitalize the tag team scene, at Joey Janela’s Spring Break 4, The Rascalz will clash with Ironbeast.
As members of The Rascalz, Zachary Wentz and Dezmond Xavier have been entrenched in the tag team scene 2018. Along with Trey Miguel and Myron Reed, this group worked across various promotions, including Combat Zone Wrestling. Most recently, they have been plying their craft in IMPACT Wrestling, competing for the promotion’s World Tag Team Championship on numerous occasions. Though they have yet to win IMPACT’s tag team prize, their showings against The North and The Motor City Machine Guns have been well-received.
It’s interesting to note that The Rascalz never teamed up in their GCW appearances. They have only worked solo matches, such as Wentz’s Death Match against Alex Colon at Homecoming Weekend in July. The Rascalz plan to make a big impression, but to do so, they will have to overcome a tall challenge in the form of Ironbeast.
If The Rascalz represent fast-paced offense, Ironbeast is the power-based foil. The latter team is comprised of KTB and Shane Mercer, both of whom are known to hit hard and dominate. This isn’t to say that they lack individual accomplishments. KTB has been especially successful in GCW, holding the promotion’s World Championship for a staggering 350 days. Meanwhile, Mercer has held a number of singles and tag team titles in Juggalo Championship Wrestling and IWA Mid-South, just to name a few organizations.
Tag team wrestling basically disappeared in @GCWrestling_ when our Tag Champions had VISA issues, One day they will be back but let’s get the tag team machine up and running in the meantime.
IRONBEAST VS THE RASCALZ, this will be a different level wild!

As a team, KTB and Mercer are that much more dominant. At last month’s Jimmy Lloyd’s Jersey Shore, Ironbeast bested Reed and Jordan Oliver of Injustice. Earlier this month, at Bring Em Out, Ironbeast defeated Tre Lamar and Lee Moriarty. Can Ironbeast add another tandem GCW victory to their record at Joey Janela’s Spring Break 4? With such a clash of styles, this will be one match not to miss, especially given its signaling of a new tag team wrestling age in GCW.
