The full lineup for Ground Zero: Mama Said Knock You Out on September 28 in Imperial Beach, CA has been announced. Plus details on the promotion’s current schedule for 2020.
In the main event of Ground Zero: Mama Said Knock You Out, Andy Brown will defend the Ground Zero Championship against Tony Deppen. The match will be Andy Brown’s seventh defense of the Ground Zero Championship. The match will also be Deppen’s debut with the promotion. Brown vs. Deppen was first announced on June 3, a few days after AEW star Jungle Boy made a tweet voicing his support for a potential match between the two. Ground Zero began to use Jungle Boy’s tweet in a video posted on their social media accounts to help promote the match.
Let's do this…
If Andy is still champion, this will be for the Ground Zero title!
Stay tuned for more announcements.

Ground Zero: Mama Said Knock You Out will also feature the Ground Zero debut of Orange Cassidy, who will be taking part in an Open Challenge match.
