Former AEW World Champion Moxley has a 2 – 1 Bloodsport record with his first bout being a win over Chris Dickinson at the third edition back in October 2020. He continued his winning streak by beating Davey Boy Smith Jr at Bloodsport 5 in February 2021 and tasted his first defeat at the hands of Barnett himself at Bloodsport 6 in April 2021. Each of Moxley’s matches has served as the Bloodsport main event.
As was mentioned earlier, Moxley is also a reigning GCW World champion since last September, when he took the belt from Matt Cardona and successfully defended it against Nick Gage and Homicide.
