Jon Moxley Explains How “The BCC Is Real”

The Blackpool Combat Club’s business is violence and business is booming for the group in AEW but Jon Moxley says the roots of the BCC go much deeper than that.

Originally the BCC began when William Regal made his shock AEW debut at Revolution in 2022 and brought together Bryan Danielson and Jon Moxley who had battered each other at the event. Eventually, Wheeler Yuta joined the group’s ranks and when Claudio Castagnoli joined AEW in the summer of 2022, the BCC was a natural home for the Swiss star.

Speaking to Sports Illustrated, Jon Moxley explained the roots of the Blackpool Combat Club and says his friendship with Castagnoli and Danielson stretches back over a decade:

“The BCC is real. It’s only been around for a year, but those guys have been my partners for like 10 years. I don’t have many close friends in the business. Danielson and Claudio, those two are on that list. They’re best friends, training partners, and I’ve spent so much time in the ring with them. The only difference was, back then, it was the opposite side of the ring.

“Me and Seth [Rollins] vs. Sheamus and Cesaro [Castagnoli], we’d wrestle so much and tear the house down. I get off on sh*t like that. I think there was a match where Claudio busted his teeth out, and, for some reason, we felt slighted in some way because it wasn’t getting the attention it deserved. So we said, ‘F*ck it, we’re just going to steal the show every night.’ I was in The Shield at that time, but you need guys on both sides to push each other.”

The BCC is currently embroiled in a heated feud with The Elite which will take its latest twist when Jon Moxley reignites his solo rivalry with Kenny Omega in a Steel Cage match on Dynamite in Detroit.
