At GCW For The Culture, championship gold will be on the line. In the most recently announced match for the event, GCW Women’s Champion Trish Adora will defend the Pan-Afrikan World Diaspora Wrestling Championship against Suge D. This event by GCW will bring wrestlers of color together in one grand showcase. In addition to popular independent names and stars on the rise, legends in the industry will be present. Further details on how For The Culture can be viewed will be detailed below.
A former United States Army servicewoman, Trish Adora served her country for eight years. Following her service, Adora began her professional wrestling training at the Team 3D Academy, operated by The Dudley Boyz. Not only did Adora serve her country, but she also had a background in rugby. Ergo, transitioning into another athletic endeavor seemed like a natural move. As the years progressed, and she appeared for various promotions as Queens of Combat, Hoodslam, and Pro Wrestling: EVE, success followed.
In 2018, Trish Adora was declared the first-ever GCW Women’s Champion. She defended the belt against the likes of KiLynn King and Aerial Monroe, the latter of whom fans may know better as Big Swole in All Elite Wrestling. Her second big achievement came this past February, when she staked claim to the Pan-Afrikan World Diaspora Wrestling Championship. As the only woman in the initial field of eight competitors, Adora won the title that represented her culture. Since then, Adora held the PAWD Championship with pride. At For The Culture, her next challenge awaits.
For the biggest gold in wrestling.

Most wrestling fans may know Suge D better as “Pineapple Pete,” the charismatic AEW Dark audience member. He even worked a number of matches on the program this year, from March to July, taking on such names as Lance Archer and inaugural AEW World Champion Chris Jericho. Simply put, he’s generated considerable buzz. Despite this, Suge D has been in professional wrestling since 2003. Furthermore, he has the credentials to back up his experience. In addition to titles across the independent scene, he is also a multi-time DDT Ironman Heavymetalweight Champion.
Born in Augusta, Georgia, Suge D has been a regular performer for various promotions over the years. In 2009, he began making appearances for CHIKARA, teaming with Dasher Hatfield to form the team known as The Throwbacks. EVOLVE Wrestling and Combat Zone Wrestling are just a few other organizations “Pineapple Pete” plied his craft. Despite his fun-loving and affable demeanor, he is a formidable opponent, regardless of the environment he’s placed in. At For The Culture, he will aim to add another accolade to his resume as he challenges Adora for the PAWD Championship, adding history to this important championship.
