This Sunday, Game Changer Wrestling wraps up its weekend in the Illinois area. Live from Evansville Coliseum, GCW Red Means Green 2023 has a stacked card of action on tap, featuring such names as Tony Deppen, BUSSY, GCW Tag Team Champions East West Express, and many more names from the past and present alike. In fact, as we run down a few highlighted matches of the night, it will become evident just how varied this show to come will be. Are you interested in watching but are unable to catch the action in person? Rest assured that it will air live via FITE+; more information can be found below. Let’s take a closer look at this evening’s show.

Blake Christian Versus Myron Reed
In what promises to be a fast-paced match, the nefarious Blake Christian will take on “The Young GOAT” known as Myron Reed. Routine Game Changer Wrestling fans will be very familiar with Christian’s bad streak that has seen him do everything from taking shortcuts in matches to attacking officials. Thus, he’s made few friends in GCW and it hasn’t made much of a dent in his success in GCW. With that said, he will have to be at the top of his game heading into GCW Red Means Green 2023 as he takes on Reed. Many Major League Wrestling fans will be familiar with Reed’s work, especially given his status as the only 3x MLW World Middleweight Champion. This confident high-flyer is also the current Black Wrestlers Matter Champion, having defended the belt this past March at GCW’s For the Culture event. Between Christian and Reed, expect nothing short of a spectacle.
BUSSY Takes On Tommy Rich and Doug Gilbert
Former GCW Tag Team Champions BUSSY, the duo of Allie Katch and EFFY, will also be in action at GCW Red Means Green 2023. These long-time friends are regular favorites among the Game Changer Wrestling faithful, not only as a duo but singles competitors to boot. However, it’s when they join forces that they seem to be the most efficient, hence their aforementioned former status as tag team titleholders. On Sunday, they take on the team of Tommy Rich and Doug Gilbert. This particular duo’s history dates back to the 1990s, where they competed side by side for the United States Wrestling Association. It was here where they became 4x USWA Tag Team Champions, though they have separate accolades to boast as well. To this day, both men continue to wrestle independently, even for GCW’s sibling promotion, Jersey Championship Wrestling. This Sunday, will it be BUSSY that takes home the victory, or will experience win out as Rich and Gilbert have their arms raised by the end of the bout?
East West Express Make Their First Title Defense
Nick Wayne and Jordan Oliver, collectively known as East West Express, ascended to the top of the tag team mountain in Game Changer Wrestling. At last month’s Joey Janela’s Spring Break 7, Wayne and Oliver bested The Motor City Machine Guns for the GCW Tag Team Championship. This marked the first time that either Wayne or Oliver held the GCW tag team titles; given their success in the promotion up until that point, it was only a matter of time until they claimed the highest honor any tag team in said promotion could achieve. At GCW Red Means Green 2023, they make their first GCW Tag Team Championship defense when they take on Reed Bentley and John Wayne Murdoch of The Rejects. As former GCW Tag Team Champions in their own right, Bentley and Murdoch are known for being hard-hitting fighters, which will make their upcoming bout against the faster-paced East West Express all the more must-see. This tag team title main event aims to steal the show.
