Jon Moxley says one of his Blackpool Combat Club allies is possibly the “greatest pro wrestler that ever lived.”
During a recent interview with Rich Ucchino of Bleav Pro Wrestling, AEW International Champion Jon Moxley heaped praise on fellow Blackpool Combat Club member Bryan Danielson, saying it’s invaluable to work with someone with such vast wrestling knowledge.
“Bryan, I consider maybe just the greatest pro wrestler that ever lived. Which is a very humbling thing that I get to say that, I get to be tag partners with him and work with him. To have somebody like that on your side, to bounce ideas off of it to play that Regal role and tell you this sucks or whatever, or change that, that’s an immense tool, that I don’t take for granted, that I have in my toolbox that I get to pick his brain.”
Jon Moxley Has Taken A Great Deal Of Influence From Bryan Danielson
Continuing, Moxley praised Danielson’s ability to get fans invested in every match that he has, calling him the most perfect pure wrestler that’s ever lived.
“Bryan is like the greatest pure pro wrestler of all time. If you just picked him up and stuck him in any ring of the world, whether it be in the parking lot of an auto parts store in Tijuana, or the Tokyo Dome, or the main event of WrestleMania, or AEW Dynamite, you put him in any ring against any opponent with no context whatsoever and just ring the bell. Anybody watching, he will suck into that match and they’ll feel like they’re watching a real struggle and he just completely sucked into this match for the duration of it against anybody anywhere, anytime.
“He’s just the most perfect pure wrestler that’s ever lived. I’ve taken a great deal of influence from him, as I’m sure many pro wrestlers have.”
After suffering a broken arm at Forbidden Door, Bryan Danielson returned to in-ring action at All Out, taking on Ricky Starks in a highly-praised strap match. On the latest episode of Collision, he announced that he will take on NJPW star Zack Sabre Jr. at WrestleDream on October 1st.
