Biff Busick (fka Oney Lorcan) has reflected on his brutal clash with Jon Moxley at Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport 8.
Busick vs Moxley was one of the most talked-about contests of the entire WrestleMania 38 weekend, reintroducing Busick to the wrestling world following his WWE departure.
Speaking with MuscleManMalcolm, Busick opened up about his time with WWE during the pandemic prior to his release in November 2021, admitting that he found it difficult to work without fans.
Noting that his Bloodsport bout reignited his passion for pro-wrestling Busick said:
Man, it was crazy (atmosphere of GCW’s Bloodsport). I had heard a lot of talk about GCW and you know, being in WWE, you’re kind of — sometimes you’re in a bubble. You don’t really know what’s going on but still, even being in WWE, I heard rumblings about, ‘GCW, GCW’ and then when I finally got the opportunity to work there, especially at Bloodsport which is — I started — it’s challenging because there’s no ropes, it’s not a traditional pro wrestling match but I like challenges and Jon Moxley’s an amazing, amazing pro wrestler.
He was a joy to work with. I think he’s a lot like me. He likes to be rugged and brawl, hit hard and get hit and I didn’t know how it was gonna go and it ended up, you know, the crowd really enjoyed it. After, I had a feeling of euphoria because wrestling is so amazing because the crowd, the fans are the most amazing part of it and when they can give you their energy and they’re going crazy for stuff, there’s no feeling like it in the world.
That’s why I think wrestling fans are the greatest fans of anything in the world because they’re just so loyal and when they get excited about stuff, you feel like Superman, you feel you can take over the world so, after that match, I felt great.
Being in WWE during the pandemic, we didn’t have fans and it was very difficult for me. I need the energy from the fans and for a couple years not having them there, I kind of felt my passion had dwindled a little bit for this so coming back to GCW, feeling that energy man, it definitely reignited my passion for wrestling.
