Claudio Castagnoli took the opportunity to defeat Zack Sabre Jr. at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door. AEW World Champion Jon Moxley is happy for himself, but also for Castagnoli for whom he had only words of praise. “It’s the best thing, man.
That’s another thing, The Blackpool Combat Club came together at a perfect time and it’s just so good for me, it just fits so perfectly,” Moxley said, as quoted by Wrestling Inc. “For instance, Claudio, I mean, it wasn’t even a question.
It’s a real thing, it’s not an act we’re putting on. He’s a real student of Regal and he’s a real training partner of mine, a former training partner for years. We were in developmental together and we traveled together a lot.
“I said something once about ‘hey, we have to bleed together if you’re gonna be on my team,’ I wrestled Claudio a million times. I have busted him open on multiple occasions. You can go back and watch that sh*t on Peacock, I knocked his f***ing teeth right down his throat and he wore adult braces for two years.
So we’ve been there, we’ve been down the road together. He’s legitimately a part of the group”.
Jon Moxley wants to get better
Moxley wants to continue at the same pace and is ready to show his full potential.
“I just want to keep getting better. I feel like right now is also a jumping-off point, this feels like the baseline I’ve been trying to get to, what I’ve been picturing in my mind for three years and it’s all starting to become a reality,” Jon Moxley said, regarding what’s next for him and the Blackpool Combat Club.
“So here’s the baseline starting off point, imagine how good we could get. I’m surrounded by guys. I love to train, I love to learn, I love to get better, try stuff out, I love helping other guys”.
