GCW weekend roundup: Jon Moxley defends title, Will Ospreay wins debut

This past weekend's double-dip of GCW action saw some big stars return and debut.
GCW: Ospreay vs. Wayne

After this weekend's action, Jon Moxley remains GCW World Champion but it was a former IWGP Champion and rising star that stole the show.

At Saturday's You Wouldn't Understand pay-per-view in New York City, Moxley defeated Tony Deppen in the night's main event in just over 17 minutes -- his first title defense since defeating AJ Gray at the first night of Joey Janela's Spring Break 6 in late-March.

GCW Tag Team Champions Bussy (Effy & Allie Katch) also came out of the weekend intact as they defended the titles Saturday against indie regulars The Mane Event who were making their GCW PPV debuts.

At Sunday's I Never Liked You PPV in Providence, Rhode Island, the focus was on former IWGP World Champion Will Ospreay making his promotional debut against Nick Wayne in a match that was put into motion by Joey Janela after Wayne was held off January's Wrld on GCW PPV at the last second due to his age. 

This was also GCW's New England debut.

Ospreay picked up the win in a buzzworthy 19-minute match with this being one of the many highlights:

Deppen rebounded from the loss Saturday with a win in a five-way scramble featuring Dustin Waller, Effy, Jimmy Lloyd and Marcus Mathers.

Joey Janela finished the weekend at 1-1 after losing to Mike Jackson Friday and defeating JT Dunn Sunday in a wild match.
