Moxley and Gage for the GCW title—ECW and WWE Legend, Al Snow, Saves Boy

Moxley’s and Gage’s battle for the GCW title is imminent; we have some news and details on the match and the ongoing feud between the two. Plus, in-ring legend, Al Snow, saves a drowning boy.

Mox vs. Gage for GCW World Title

In a very shocking turn of events, it was only last Saturday that Jon Moxley surprised audience members and a pretty shocked Matt Cardona with an appearance and subsequent win over at Game Changer Wrestling’s event, Art of War Games at Hoffman Estates.

Moxley took the title, yeah, but GCW’s own, Nick Gage made his own presence known when he came to the ring to stare down the new champion…the message delivered in full to all watching at home and all who were ringside: the match between the two would be coming, but when would it take place?

That question was answered in a promo by Gage in which he detailed when the match would take place: On October 9th and in Atlantic City of all places; the match has been labeled a deathmatch, and we know how skilled both of these men are in that type of match, so we’re in for something special for sure.

But according to Cassidy Haynes of, this won’t be the last time the two will be set to square off in the ring. Apparently, the ongoing feud is supposed to be going on well until GCW’s Spring Break show to be held during WrestleMania weekend with a bunch of matches planned along the way, so stay tuned for news on that front dear readers, and as always, we’ll have you covered.

Al Snow saves boy in peril of drowning

As was reported by TMZ Sports, Al Snow had been spending some time at the beach in Santa Rosa Beach in Destin, Florida when he heard a boy screaming from the water. After hearing the screams, Snow looked around for the lifeguard and had this to say about what happened next when he was later interviewed:

“…I knew she wasn’t going to make it in time…I made it, thank God…And, I caught him just by the arm just as a wave started to pull him even further out. If I hadn’t have grabbed him, I think he’d have probably went out to sea…I was able to stay up and hand him off to the lifeguard and I made my way back across to my friend and we went up on the beach and I felt like I was about to collapse. I was exhausted…”

Also according to TMZ, Snow nor the boy had gotten injured during the dangerous episode and the boy and his mother thanked him quite extensively. Al Snow has kept himself in incredible shape and at the age of 58 is seemingly in better shape than he was during the height of his fame in WWE.

Al Snow, who started wrestling in 1982, made his way through many of the territories of the era but is perhaps most regarded for his time in WWE and of course to a much more hardcore audience, from his time in ECW.

Snow, a former European Champion (title now defunct and first won by the incomparable British Bulldog), and six-time Hardcore Champion, had a ton of epic matches in his career, and despite being labeled as more of a comedic act, and way too gimmicky, his matches against Chris Benoit, Bob Holly and even The Rock prove otherwise.


A match against Hannibal on the independent circuit (see above) that took place in Smiths Falls, Ontario, Canada for a Canadian Championship match was extremely special, and that match took place in 2016.

Snow is also famous for having been a trainer on the Tough Enough reality show produced by WWE, and for various seasons.
