This match has a pretty interesting story behind it. Effy’s made a name for himself as one of the most popular LGBT wrestlers today and a massive proponent of intergender matches. He’s also known for supporting LGBT wrestlers through his “Effy’s Big Gay Brunch” GCW shows. However over the past few months, he caught the eye of the acclaimed 10X world champion, Jeff Jarrett. Jarrett has been regularly attacking Effy and his partner, Allie Katch, alleging that he’s the true innovator of the more progressive wrestling styles that Effy represents. Meanwhile, Effy calls him a “clout vampire,” hiding behind his accolades to cover up his failures. His “Last Outlaw” character certainly has some intensity behind it and gives Effy a strong opponent. It’s a great approach to the traditional “youth vs. experience” story we usually get. At the same time, the announcer listing Jeff Jarrett’s resume still gives him the heel heat he needs. Effy walked in with the crowd’s love, as they threw pink and rainbow streamers into the ring.
While Effy started off confident, mocking Jeff Jarrett and getting in some serious hits, Jarrett slowly gained control of the match with his size and experience. Jarrett crushed the crowd’s hopes, wailing on Effy will brutal leather belt shots. Those shots hurt, scarring Effy’s body with bright red lashes like sunburn. He even whipped a GCW ref for getting in his face. The 10x world champion Jeff Jarrett immediately established himself in GCW as a force to be reckoned with. As he bound Effy to the turnbuckle, you could hear the crowd audibly concerned and cheering Effy on. Jarrett grabbed a chair, but Effy freed himself, punching and grinding on Jarrett, compelled to show himself in good spirits. As Effy seems to gain momentum, even delivering a hard-hitting low blow and slashing Jarrett’s face with his own fishnets, Jarrett took his guitar and bashed it straight in Effy’s face. Effy stood firm in defiance, but Jarrett crushed Effy’s face into the canvas, pinning him for the three count, taking the win.
Great story, but this story is far from over. I wouldn’t be surprised, in fact, I’d be excited if this led to a match between Jeff Jarrett and Allie Katch. Effy went out strong, continuing to show why he’s one of the most popular wrestling in GCW.
