Game Changer Wrestling kicked off their big WrestleMania week slate at The Collective yesterday with Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport 8 and Joey Janela’s Spring Break 6, Part 1 on Thurs., Mar. 31.
Bloodsport came first, and opened with had this knockout spot from Ninja Mack on Yoya go viral
The standout match of the show saw Jon Moxley beat Biff Busick (fka Oney Lorcan) via knockout. If you thought Busick hit hard when he was in WWE, you should see him cut loose on the indies. And with Mox? Fuhgeddaboudit.
The main event then featured Chris Dickinson hitting a low blow on Minoru Suzuki en route to stoppage victory.

A few hours later at Spring Break, the show opened with The Briscoes winning the GCW Tag titles for the second time in a Triple Threat. Mickie James made her Game Changer debut, and picked up a win over Allie Katch with a trick from her days stalking Trish Stratus...
The payoff of Joey Janela’s betrayal of Sean Waltman was one of the standouts of this card. X-Pac lost (also low blow-assisted, damn heels), but his 20 minutes of doing stuff like this...
... is even more impressive now that we know he was doing it a torn bicep...
I tried to keep this on the down-low, but I tore my bicep in the tag match a month ago. I'm going to have surgery soon & then have a few more matches. pic.twitter.com/yKol8ySq8z— Sean Waltman (@TheRealXPac) April 1, 2022
