Tainted Glory 2022: Brixton Shaw vs. JD Griffey

MMA specialist JD Griffey made his HOT Wrestling debut in Mart, Texas for the Tainted Glory event on July 24, 2022 and Griffey drew an incredible challenge for his first HOT battle, as for the first time ever, he would face British ring veteran Brixton Shaw, who pinned HOT Champion Dimitri Alexandrov at Flatline in Riesel back in April 2022. That decision was overturned, however, due to illegal interference by Brixton's manager Eden Grace, who would also be at ringside for this match. This was an extremely physical, highly competitive contest, but with Eden on Brixton's side, the deck was stacked against Griffey.
