Over the past few weeks, The Elite has been embroiled in a heated rivalry with the Blackpool Combat Club. This feud is set to reach a boiling point on the May 10th episode of "AEW Dynamite," It has been officially announced that Kenny Omega will go head-to-head with Jon Moxley in an intense steel cage match.
The announcement follows Omega's post-show promo on this past Wednesday's "Dynamite," where he labeled the BCC as cowards for attacking and fleeing from The Elite's latest ally, Konosuke Takeshita.
Omega's Challenge Sparks Speculation
In his impassioned speech last Wednesday, Omega challenged Tony Khan, saying, "Hey Tony, instead of letting the inmates run the asylum for a change, how 'bout you lock these guys where they can't run, where they can't hide, and you take on me." This statement fueled speculation about a potential Blood & Guts showdown between the two factions.
Although such a matchup may still occur, Omega will face Moxley, and only Moxley, inside a steel cage. Nevertheless, Omega can find comfort knowing that Moxley will have nowhere to escape on May 10. However, it remains to be seen whether a steel cage is enough to separate these two warring factions.
In the event of a Blood & Guts matches, The Elite has assembled a formidable lineup to take on BCC's Bryan Danielson, Claudio Castagnoli, Wheeler Yuta, and Moxley, with the recent addition of Takeshita. However, Matt Jackson's participation might be uncertain due to an ongoing recovery from an arm injury inflicted by BCC.
"Hangman" Adam Page has also been entangled in this rivalry, but his involvement has not yet been made official. As anticipation builds for the Omega-Moxley steel cage match, fans can expect an explosive encounter between these two seasoned competitors.
With the ever-present tension between The Elite and the Blackpool Combat Club, it remains uncertain whether the steel cage will be enough to contain the animosity between these factions. All eyes will be on "AEW Dynamite" on May 10, as the wrestling world eagerly awaits this high-stakes showdown.
