Jon Moxley to take on Josh Barnett at Bloodsport III during Mania weekend

 
 

While AEW has no shows planned during WrestleMania weekend, IWGP United States champion Jon Moxley will be in Tampa during the weekend, and not just accompanying his wife Renee Young.

Moxley will be involved in a match against former UFC champ Josh Barnett as part of his Bloodsport III show, held at The Cuban Club on Thursday, April 2, in conjunction with Game Changer Wrestling.

The former WWE champion was supposed to wrestle Barnett in September last year and main event Bloodsport II but his MRSA infection got in the way. Eventually he had to pull out just like he did for All Out.

Bloodsport rules involve matches ending in either a knockout or submission, so there’s no pinfalls as a means of win. The ring is also without ropes or turnbuckles, giving the feeling of a proper fight.
