Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport featuring Shayna Baszler marked significant crossover between WWE and the independent wrestling scene. As the event concluded, it became apparent that other WWE talents were also approached to participate.

The news of multiple WWE talents being scheduled to compete at Bloodsport, an event technically promoted by GCW, came as a surprise to many. This is particularly notable considering that talents from AEW have previously appeared on Bloodsport. Historically, WWE has been cautious about allowing its talents to work independent shows, making this development unexpected and intriguing for wrestling enthusiasts.

According to a report by Sean Ross Sapp behind Fightful’s paywall, it was revealed that additional WWE talent were contacted about potentially joining the lineup for the Bloodsport X event.

”There were other WWE talent that were contacted about possibly doing Bloodsport.”


At the Bloodsport X event, Shayna Baszler delivered dominant performance against Masha Slamovich, securing the victory. The success of Baszler’s appearance raises speculation about the potential for WWE’s continued involvement in such events.

As the wrestling community reflects on this collaboration, anticipation builds for the possibility of future WWE talents participating in Bloodsport. Who else from WWE’s roster would you like to see at the next Bloodsport event? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!
