Game Changer Wrestling (GCW) returns with Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport 2 this September, following up on the successful shoot-style event held over WrestleMania week. The main event has been announced as former UFC Heavyweight Champion Josh Barnett facing AEW/NJPW star Jon Moxley, as well as Killer Kross, Allysin Kay, Zachary Wentz, JR Kratos and former Bellator fighter Matt “Weapon X” Makowski. Another week past and we have four more names added to the event, bringing the number of competitors up to eleven.
Anthony Henry is part of one of the top tag teams in the US indies in The Work Horsemen, alongside former WWN Champion JD Drake. The duo are former EVOLVE Tag Team Champions and current reigning tag team champions for Freelance Wrestling and Atlanta Wrestling Entertainment (AWE). But both men are quite capable singles fighters – Anthony Henry had actually quit wrestling in the mid-2000s to pursue an MMA career and is the reigning Full Impact Pro World Champion, holding it over 300 days.
Chris Dickinson has been both a tag team specialist and one-man wrecking machine throughout his career. He was a member of Catch Point in EVOLVE Wrestling, winning the EVOLVE Tag Team titles alongside Jaka in Doom Patrol, as well as being one of the main threats in Beyond Wrestling for years. A perfect combo of speed, power and technique, this is Dickinson’s third straight Bloodsport event, losing to Dan “The Beast” Severn at Matt Riddle’s Bloodsport last year and defeating “The Butcher of Buffalo” Andy Williams at Josh Barnett’s first Bloodsport this spring.
Davey Boy Smith Jr. returns for his second Bloodsport event after having one of the matches of the night this past spring in a slobberknocker against Killer Kross. The third generation star, trained by his grandfather Stu Hart as well as legendary UK technician Billy Robinson, is well versed for these catch/shoot style tournaments.
Former Major League Wrestling (MLW) World Heavyweight Champion and former UFC fighter “Filthy” Tom Lawlor makes his second Bloodsport appearance, having faced WALTER at the first one last year. He’s become one of MLW’s breakout stars in the past year and continues to shine, but getting back to his MMA roots in a shoot style event will be a lot of fun for the fans and wrestler himself.
