Game Changer Wrestling (GCW) tweeted out earlier today denying the rumor that they offered former WWE cruiserweight champion Enzo Amore, now known as nZo, any money for his hyped fight against NJPW star Tama Tonga. Amore and Tonga’s ongoing Twitter feud escalated to a point where Tonga challenged Amore to a match (or shoot fight), with all of the donations going to a charity of the fans choosing.
Amore released a video response claiming that GCW and Josh Barnett offered him $25,000 to compete against Tonga at the upcoming Bloodsport III event in Florida. The promotion writes:
Just to clarify: Neither GCW or Josh Barnett have offered ClowNzo $25,000 to fight at Bloodsport or appear at ANY GCW events. In fact, we haven’t offered him 1 cent, now or ever. Sorry Pal.
You can see GCW’s tweet, along with Amore’s video below.

UPDATE: nZo tells @WrestlingSheet that despite how it may have sounded in the video he put out today, it was WrestleCon who offered him $25K for an exclusive deal on signings and the match against Tama Tonga – not GCW/Bloodsport III.https://t.co/bZBb3goUq2
