GCW Fight Club has not been short on surprises. Earlier in the evening, with the assistance of Chelsea Green, Matt Cardona regained his Internet Championship from EFFY. Following intermission, the show continued with the Scramble Match, a staple of Game Changer Wrestling. What was originally a 6-person match would have one more participant announced. This was none other than Thunder Rosa, who made her GCW debut at Fight Club to a raucous ovation.
Thunder Rosa Makes GCW Debut
Originally, the Scramble Match at GCW Fight Club was a 6-person bout. The competitors announced for the match were Calvin Tankman, Brayden Lee, Jimmy Lloyd, Dante Leon, Gringo Loco, and ASF. When Thunder Rosa made her entrance, it was confirmed, via ring announcement, that the match would be extended to 7 competitors. Rosa competed well in the match, performing a flying splash to a pile of wrestlers, as well as a diving hurricanrana on the outside. Despite Rosa’s best efforts, in addition to those of her opponents, it was Lloyd that ultimately won the Scramble Match.
