AEW Announces December TV Tapings, Brett Lauderdale Praises Matt Cardona’s GCW Run



All Elite Wrestling will present Worlds End on Saturday, December 30, 2023, at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, marking the company’s first pay-per-view event to be held in New York state.

AEW has announced a new set of TV tapings that will take place ahead of Worlds End.

AEW Collision will be held in San Antonio, Texas at the Frost Bank Center on Saturday, December 23. The go-home editions of Dynamite and Rampage will take place on Wednesday, December 27 at the Addition Arena in Orlando, Florida.

Tickets for the events will go on sale on Friday, November 3.

GameChanger Wrestling owner Brett Lauderdale credits Matt Cardona’s post-WWE run in his promotion as something that has changed the independent wrestling scene in a major way.

Cardona debuted for GCW at Zombie Walk 2021 and has built himself as a key figure on the independent circuit.

On a recent edition of “The Business of the Business with Lavie Margolin and John Poz” podcast, Lauderdale discussed Cardona’s run in GCW. He said,

“Freddie Prinze [Jr.]…in terms of him being inspired by Matt Cardona, a lot of people were inspired by Matt Cardona. People from the WWE bubble that might not have understood what the indies were or might not have understood what was out there. Matt definitely inspired a lot of people and continues to.

But yeah, that initial GCW run, that was, pardon the pun, that was a game-changer in so many ways. I think that the influence it had in the short term and the long term, I think we’re gonna continue to feel the ramifications of his success. I think it just made everybody look differently at the indies.”
