Jon Moxley Details How The Blackpool Combat Club Was Formed

During an appearance with his wife Renee Paquette on the “The Sessions with Renee Paquette” podcast, AEW Star Jon Moxley detailed how the Blackpool Combat Club was formed.

“There was not some big plan or anything,” Moxley said. “It was — I was going to wrestle Bryan because (before) I was going to wrestle Bryan, and then I went to rehab. So we needed a reason to wrestle. Bryan said something about, ‘Maybe I can float the idea of us doing a team to you. But you know that I’m a bad guy and you don’t trust me.’ I had done something similar with Jericho where he wanted me to join the Inner Circle … We go do a promo in the ring. I don’t know what Bryan’s going to say, he doesn’t know what I’m going to say.”

“Bryan suggests to me, in the ring on TV, that we should be a team, and he talks about how we could take young guys and mold them and, ‘You don’t have anybody watching you’re back. We can dominate this place.’ All this stuff that he said in the promo, and I was listening to it for the first time in the ring and he made such a compelling case. And the audience, you could tell the audience was going, ‘Huh, you know, that actually kind of makes sense.’ It wasn’t like Jericho and the Inner Circle where they were total bad guy characters like, joining them would be turning to the dark side. Bryan was making a really good case. The people were actually reacting strongly to the idea, like, ‘I think he’s got a point.’”

“I texted Bryan and I was like, ‘Man, I’m not going to lie to you. I was thinking, what if we did do that?’” Moxley said. “He was like, ‘I was thinking the same thing!’ I can’t in real life or as a character think of a good reason to say no. One of us or both of us talked to Tony … He didn’t see the whole vision at first, he was like, ‘Yeah, you can do it for a few weeks, and then break up or whatever.’ Me and Bryan saw the vision, I could tell we both saw the exact same thing.”

“Regal had just got fired,” Moxley said. “I hadn’t talked to him in a while, I don’t know if he’s actually available. I don’t know if he even wants to work, I don’t know what his contractual status is or if he’d even be interested. I’m just fantasy booking, but Regal’s got this relationship with me, he’s got this relationship with Bryan, and we’re doing this story right now, and I kind of had the vision of him coming in and breaking up the ruckus (at Revolution).”
