[iPPV Results] JCW Bloodymania 6

Last night the 13th annual Gathering of the Juggalos capped off its three day celebration of everything Psychopathic Records with Bloodymania 6, Juggalo Championship Wrestling’s version of Wrestlemania. If you were like me and had to miss it (not a fan of the Psychopathic music, but I’ve grown to enjoy JCW), check out the results of that event below, curated from a report of the event sent to ProWrestling.netResults are shown in the order the match happened.

  1. The Ring Rydas [Ring Ryda Red/Ring Ryda Blue] (c) defeated The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express [Ricky Morton/Robert Gibson, The Headbangers [Mosh/Thrasher], and Madman Pondo/Necro Butcher to retain the JCW Tag Team Titles
  2. Vampiro pinned “Officer” Colt Cabana
  3. Zach Gowen won a 9-man battle royal, last eliminating Bobby Lashley [Other participants: CarlitoChris Masters, Shockwave the RobotU-Gene, Sean “X-Pac” Waltman, and The Weedman]
  4. John “Morrison” Hennigan defeated Matt Hardy and “Richie Boy” Bryer Wellington in a three-way dance [Wellington replaced Shane “Hurricane” Helms, who couldn’t make it due to travel issues]
  5. Vader/Scott Steiner defeated Shaun Summers/Roderick Street
  6. 2 Tuff Tony (c) pinned Kongo Kong to retain the JCW Heavyweight Championship

Sounds like an eclectic and interesting show and I’m sorry I missed it (maybe I’ll check the replay when I get the cash). JCW is the “black sheep” of American independent wrestling but it’s a unique one that is at least worth a look at. They are one of the few companies that can legitimately state they’re doing something different in professional wrestling.

To order the Bloodymania 6 replay for 14.99, head over to Psychopathic Live.
