In August, GCW filed to dismiss the breach of contract lawsuit filed against them by IndependentWrestling.TV (IWTV), claiming that IWTV failed to “state a claim upon which relief can be granted.”
As per PWInsider, on October 27, IWTV filed a motion to ask United States District Court Middle District of Pennsylvania (Scranton) to deny the motion to dismiss the lawsuit brought against GCW.
The two parties are said to have entered a contract on March 19, 2020, which IWTV claims gave them exclusive rights to hold GCW pay-per-views.
However, the site accuses GCW of breaching this by streaming a pay-per-view event through an alternate platform on December 1, 2020, and then doing so another 36 times between December 5 and May 15.
IWTV claimed in the original suit that it informed Game Changer of the contract breach, but the promotion carried on anyway. The suit stated that the exact damages can’t be calculated but “it is believed the damages are in excess of $500,000”.
