Jason signed back with FZW when it announced its return to the SCAW Forum Zone in 2015. Jason would compete in the FZW: Champion Series to crown the new Havok Champion, but came up short against "The Cross Country King" Bobby Mitchell in the First Round. Following this, Jason would be moved to the Chaos brand when the FZW Board of Directors announced the brand would be returning. Jason competed in the Chaos Championship Tournament Special, making it to the Semi-Finals before losing to "The Prodigy" Lewis Rivers.
At FZW: Ultimate 2015, Jason would win his first Singles Championship in FZW, the FZW Zeta Championship when he won a Four-Way Ladder match also involving Johnny Mundo, "The Renegade" Kyle4000, and Ryan Knight. Jason's reign would be the second longest in company history at 188 days, as he secured victories over "The Prodigy" Lewis Rivers at FZW: Fallout 2015, "The Renegade" Kyle4000 at FZW: Menace to Society, Red Mutiny at FZW: Descent into Madness (after Ryan Knight interfered and cost Red Mutiny), Ryan Knight and Red Mutiny in a Triple Threat match at FZW: Quest for the Gold, and Red Mutiny again at FZW: Ground Zero. After his title defense at FZW: Ground Zero, Jason would trade in his FZW Zeta Championship for an opportunity to challenge "First Class" Lewis Rivers for the Chaos Championship.
Jason would get his opportunity to do that at FZW: Kingdom Come, and would win the match. Jason would then defeat Lewis Rivers in a rematch at FZW: High Voltage, before successfully retaining against John Cena at FZW: Last Laugh. Following Last Laugh, Jason entered a feud with the Chaos-brand Kingdom Come match winner "The Ronin" Alex Star, a former two-time Chaos Champion, over the Chaos Championship leading into FZW: Ultimate 2016. Jason would be pinned by Alex in a Tag Team match on FZW: Chaos 25, after he refused to make a cover throughout the entire match. The two brawled on FZW: Chaos 26 and on FZW: Chaos 27, were ordered to not lay a single hand on each other or they would forfeit the main event of FZW: Ultimate 2016. At Ultimate, Jason would defeat Alex in the main event, and would once again retain his Chaos Championship
FZW's Season 6 premiere opened one week after FZW: Ultimate 2016, with FZW: Emergence. This RPV would mark the official end of the brand split in FZW, and the respective Champions for each brand would unify the titles together. In the main event, Jason would become the first-ever FZW World Heavyweight Champion when he unified the Chaos Championship with the Havok Championship by defeating "The God of FZW" Keith Austin. Following Emergence, Jason would win a Golden Grappler Award for FZW's Breakout Star of the Year. He would then enter a feud with Keith Austin leading into FZW: Fallout 2016 in their hometown of Los Angeles in a match that was billed "The Battle of Los Angeles." Jason won the match and had his first successful defense as FZW World Heavyweight Champion.
Following FZW: Fallout 2016, Jason would look ahead to a new challenger at FZW: Menace to Society. Now calling himself "The Man" and "Big Match Jason," Jason defeated "The Natural" Walter Scott and "The Ronin" Alex Star on FZW: Havok 31 and FZW: Havok 32 respectively. On FZW: Havok 33, Jason would lose a match to John Cena, no thanks to Cena's girlfriend Nikki Bella interfering in the match. This set up a Triple Threat match to determine the Number One Contender to the Championship on FZW: Havok 34, which John Cena would win by pinning Walter Scott. At FZW: Menace to Society, Jason would defeat John Cena to retain the FZW World Heavyweight Championship, and then would hit Nikki Bella with a Final Blow after the match was over.
Following FZW: Menace to Society, Jason again found himself looking for a new challenger for his FZW World Heavyweight Championship. The Number One Contender was decided on FZW: Havok 35 when Alex Star defeated Walter Scott. The rematch from FZW: Ultimate 2016 wouldn't be as intense as it was last season, but Alex would defeat "The God of FZW" Keith Austin on FZW: Havok 36 and cost Jason a match with Walter Scott on FZW: Havok 37. However, Jason again defeated Alex Star to retain the FZW World Heavyweight Championship at FZW: Descent into Madness, and after the match would be shown respect by Alex when Alex raised his arm.
FZW: Descent into Madness also saw the participants for FZW's first-ever Ruler of the Ring Tournament announced, as Jason would be looking ahead to a new challenger for his Championship to be decided at FZW: Quest for the Gold. However, he would have to get through either "The Natural" Walter Scott or "The God of FZW" Keith Austin at FZW: Ruler of the Ring 2016, whoever won a Number One Contenders match on FZW: Havok 39. Walter would win the match, and on FZW: Havok 40, Jason defeated Samoa Joe. On FZW: Havok 41, Walter defeated Alex Star in the co-main event, while Jason defeated the FZW Zeta Champion Lewis Rivers in a Champion vs. Champion match in the main event. After the match, Walter and Lewis would attack Jason, hitting him with a Package Piledriver/Superkick combination. Jason still retained his FZW World Heavyweight Championship in the main event of FZW: Ruler of the Ring 2016, a night that also saw Ryan Knight win the FZW Ruler of the Ring Tournament by defeating John Cena in the Finals. This set up an FZW World Heavyweight Championship match in the main event of FZW: Quest for the Gold, as Ryan would get his first opportunity at the FZW World Heavyweight Championship against Jason.

Jace after the match was attacked by BAMF and Tyler Breeze but he turned away their attack laying out Murphy with a selfie stick, Blake with the Reverse GTS into the Boma Ye, Tyler Breeze with Anarchy Reigns and Alexa with a Rainmaker Lariat. It was clear that Jason Russo had arrived and GWA Hell on Earth III was where he showcased himself. He put up a great fight against Django but was screwed over by the debuting Kyjack Necro.
