Preview: GCW/VxS – Jimmy Lloyd’s All Grown Up (2/17/23) – Full Card, Start Time, How to Watch

GCW VxS Jimmy Lloyds All Grown Up

This Friday, Jimmy Lloyd celebrates his 25th birthday in a major way. Game Changer Wrestling will be partnering with Violence x Suffering Wrestling to hold the aptly named wrestling event Jimmy Lloyd’s All Grown Up. Needless to say, the birthday boy will be in action, though there will be plenty of action for other independent wrestlers across the board to get in on. In fact, many of the names in action will be familiar to GCW and VxS fans alike; for those that aren’t as up to date on these promotions, rest assured that this show at FSW Arena aims to be a party worth attending. Here’s what to expect before bell time.

Card for Jimmy Lloyd’s All Grown Up

  • East West Express (Nick Wayne and Jordan Oliver) vs. Arez and Komander
  • Dante Leon vs. Cole Radrick
  • Ciclope vs. Matthew Justice
  • Mike Bailey vs. Miedo Extremo
  • Santana Jackson vs. Dark Sheik
  • Deathmatch: Jimmy Lloyd vs. EFFY

A Las Vegas Thriller

In one of the more unique matches of Jimmy Lloyd’s All Grown Up, independent wrestling veteran Dark Sheik will take on the enigmatic Santana Jackson. Also known as “The High Priestess,” Sheik is an established indie wrestling staple, particularly on the West Coast. Not only does she boast over 2 decades of in-ring experience, but she is credited as the Founder and Owner of Oakland-based wrestling promotion Hoodslam. This Friday, she takes on Santana Jackson, who bears a striking resemblance to the late “King of Pop,” Michael Jackson. Though Santana is very much a tribute artist, don’t let his presentation discard the fact that he’s a formidable in-ring competitor, his Moonwalk DDT being equal parts a fitting tribute and incredibly devastating. Between two of the most colorful personalities on the scene today, expect this match to have attendees talking about as they’re filing out of FSW Arena.

EFFY Challenges the Birthday Boy

As mentioned earlier, Jimmy Lloyd would be in action; it almost goes without saying given the namesake of the event at hand. However, “The Different Boy” may have the most difficult match of the night, as he faces “The Weapon of Sass Destruction” EFFY in a Deathmatch. Neither man is a stranger to ultraviolent wrestling, having competed in many grueling affairs involving bloodshed and foreign objects alike. On the surface, the gritty Lloyd seems to have the edge. However, one shouldn’t count out the charismatic EFFY, who has proven that he’s ready to do anything to win, even if it means tapping into his more violent side. Can Lloyd seize a victory on the night of his birthday dash or can EFFY ensure that, in the most destructive of ways, this will be a birthday his opponent won’t soon forget?
