GCW & Chris Hamrick Apologize After He Called Fan Homophobic Slur

On Sunday, Game Changer Wrestling held their Aura show which streamed on FITE. However, fans who witnessed the show weren’t left talking about the in-ring action they saw, but the homophobic slur that former ECW talent Chris Hamrick used. He did this while trying to get heel heat, and called a fan a “face down, @ss up, pillow biting f****t,” and when he went to seemingly say something transphobic to a different fan, another wrestler in the upcoming six-way scramble match took the mic off him.

While the type of language hasn’t been acceptable for decades in wrestling, and nowadays, it is incredibly frowned upon, so both GCW and Hamrick have issued public apologies on Twitter. With it is confirmed that Hamrick’s pay and a donation from themselves will go to Youth Pride Rhode Island, an advocacy group for LGBTQ youth.

56-year-old Hamrick is best known for his run in ECW in the early 2000s, where he was nicknamed Confederate Currency and part of the Hot Commodity faction with EZ Money, Elektra, and Julio Dinero. Additionally, he worked as an enhancement talent for WWE in the 90s and mid-2000s before becoming a journeyman competitor. And with him just beginning to work for GCW this past August, whether he will return to GCW in the future now remains to be seen.
