News from GCW in Phenix City, AL
Erik Watts has been rehired by Great Championship Wrestling as their new Chief of Wrestling Operations. An announcement on the GCW website states that owner Diane Hewes made the move yesterday.

Watts had a run as booker for GCW, which ended in an acrimonious split with the company in April 2006.
