Jon Moxley was finally defeated at Bloodsport 6 by John Barnett in a brutal encounter that saw both men badly bloodied.
The match took place on April 8th in Tampa, Florida, and was Moxley’s third appearance at a Bloodsport event. Moxley’s opponent was the man who puts his name to these events – Josh Barnett, who remains undefeated at Bloodsport.
Former NJPW star Josh Barnett won the bout by referee stoppage when Moxley was unable to intelligently defend himself. With Barnett stomping at Moxley, the referee intervened and waved the fight off. Immediately after the contest was called, Moxley appeared ready to keep fighting but by then it was too late. The former AEW Champion’s undefeated Bloodsport record was over.
The match took place one night after AEW Dynamite aired on TNT. On that episode of AEW’s weekly show, Jon Moxley was betrayed by The Young Bucks. Originally teaming with the AEW Tag Team Champions against Kenny Omega and The Good Brothers, an argument broke out as Moxley looked to punish Omega. With Moxley about to hit the AEW Champion with his third Paradigm Shift, the Bucks struck with their trademark superkick, taking Moxley out.
Also on the Bloodsport 6 card was former NWA Women’s World’s Champion Allysin Kay defeating Masha Slamovich. NJPW Young Lion Ale Coughlin defeated recent AEW competitor Royce Isaacs. Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush defeated Yoya by submission. Also, Bloodsport regular Davey Boy Smith Jr. defeated KTB by knockout. Chavo Guerrero Jr. then beat NJPW’s Rocky Romero after the referee stopped the contest.
Bloodsport 6 is part of a dozen events promoted by GCW over WrestleMania week. These include GCW For The Culture and finally GCW Effy’s Big Gay Brunch 2021 on the 10th of April.
