Joey Janela decided to "flame on" at GCW Maniac.
In his main event bout against Drew Parker, Janela set his foot/boot on fire to perform a superkick. While he was able to hit the kick on Parker, the fire didn't go out and Janela sat in the middle of the ring as the fire continued.
Water bottles were thrown in the ring to douse the flame, but it didn't quite work. Janela took his boot off, but his foot was on fire. Fortunately, they were able to extinguish the fire.
Janela took to social media after the match to joke about the spot and fire back at anyone criticizing.
