Enter Erik Hammer, who will be making his second Bloodsport appearance next month.

An experienced catch wrestler, Erik Hammer has been an athletic force to be reckoned with since 2008. He is most well-known for his work in Inoki Genome Federation, a professional wrestling and mixed martial arts promotion founded by Antonio Inoki in 2007. From 2008 to 2011, Hammer was undefeated in IGF, triumphing over the likes of Daijiro Matsui, Daniel Puder, and Atushi Sawada. His combination of martial arts and technical wrestling made him a beast in the Inoki-owned organization. He would even compete for the IGF Championship.
Everybody that stands in front of The Hammer looks like a nail needing to be smashed.
This Catch Wrestling & No Gi champion is coming back to Josh Barnett's: Bloodsport.

As the years went on, Hammer took his skills outside of IGF. In 2018, he did work for the Snake Pit U.S.A. Catch Wrestling Association, which complemented Hammer’s specialty of catch wrestling. The following year, Hammer achieved his greatest fame in professional wrestling yet. In September of 2019, Hammer appeared for the second-ever Bloodsport, where he bested JR Kratos. Over one year later, Hammer prepares for his return to GCW. What awaits him remains to be seen, but with over twelve years of experience under his belt, Hammer isn’t a fighter to overlook.
