Indie sensation, Alex Zayne, wrestled his final match on the independent scene on November 8 amidst rumours that he is headed to WWE.
At Game Changer Wrestling: So Much Fun from the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Zayne battled and fell to Tony Deppen in a bout billed as his final match on the circuit.
Following the emotionally charged clash, wrestlers surrounded the ring to see the star on his way and Zayne took to the microphone to bid a fond farewell to the scene that brought him to worldwide attention.
Promising to change the game wherever he ended up, Zayne soaked up rousing chants of his name and promised that he was GCW until the day he died.
Thanks @AlexZayne. You'll always be part of the GCW Family.
We can't wait to watch you change the game… again.

In recent weeks, it has been rumoured that Zayne was headed for one of the big companies with interest from WWE and NJPW rife. It was said Zayne had impressed New Japan officials with his appearances on NJPW Strong which he has competed on sporadically since August.
Matches against the likes of Guerillas of Destiny, PJ Black and Bullet Club have elevated Zayne in the eyes of bigwigs and brought him to the attention of many, both in and outside the United States.
Now time will only tell where the high-flying sensation will end up, but wherever it is, he’s sure to benefit and improve any roster he’s a part of.
