As previously reported, AEW World Champion Jon Moxley is set to compete and make his debut at Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport on Sunday, October 11th from the Marion County Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Moxley was recently a guest on the Fight Game podcast, where he hyped his Bloodsport debut and talked about how he first discovered Bloodsport and fell in love with it. Mox also talked about how he always used to bug Bobby Lashley for MMA advice.
Below are the highlights:
On how he first discovered Bloodsport and fell in love with it:
“That’s what I loved about the Bloodsport stuff in Jersey. That was the first indie show I’d been to or even really paid any attention to in years. I hadn’t been to an indie show or been in that environment in years. Years and years, and I walked in there, I’m laying low. I went with William Regal and my buddy Robert Anthony was there.
We’re watching it, he’s kinda filling me in [on] the balcony on who some of who these people are. Some of the people I wasn’t familiar with. A lot of people [it] was the first time I’d ever seen them work, and, you know… I was just like I fcking love this so much. Like I love [these] fcking fans, I love this presentation, I love this style. It’s like, everybody’s here to fight, it’s aggressive, it’s violent, it’s fcking testosterone, adrenaline, energy. This is wrestling. There’s no bullsht, nobody’s talking on the mic. ‘This is where I fcking belong. I miss this so fcking much,’ you know?
And Robert Anthony says to me, I think we were watching Killer Kross and Davey Boy Smith, which is a great match from that show. Davey Boy Smith gives him a fcking slap in the fcking face like a God damn gun shot went off. He hits him so fcking hard or at least created the illusion that he did if he’s that skilled. But, I wouldn’t wanna fcking test it out, and we’re like, ‘This is physical, this sht is awesome. I’m loving this show’ and he goes, and at this point, he knew I was gonna be pretty much free and clear agent pretty soon and he was like, ‘Man, would you do this show?’ And I was like, ‘I have to do this show,’ and he was like, ‘Oh sht, it’s on’ and I was like, ‘We’ll get to it later. I still got a few more months’ but, so I decided about that.”
On how he always used to bug Bobby Lashley for MMA advice:
“Like I used to fcking bug the sht out of Bobby Lashley, because he knows a lot of guys and trains with a lot of guys so I’d be like, ‘Yo, who should I put money on dude? What do you think is gonna happen? Like give me the fcking dirt.’ Do sht like that all the time.”
