A new champion was crowned at Thursday’s Impact Wrestling TV tapings in Orlando, Florida at Universal Studios.
Eli Drake won the Gauntlet For The Gold match to become the new GFW World Champion. The match is expected to air on next week’s episode of Impact Wrestling on Pop TV. Jim Cornette returned to GFW to fire Bruce Prichard and take over as an authority figure and announced the match. The reason for the title being vacated is due to GFW stripping Alberto El Patron of the title earlier this week after his incident with Paige at an Orlando airport.
The match came down to Drake who entered the match at #1, and Eddie Edwards, who entered the match at #2.
