Bryan Danielson and Jon Moxley have joined forces. It was just this past week on Dynamite that they had their very first match and it of course delivered on all fronts (a match against Anthony Henry and JD Drake). They already have a match set for next Wednesday where they’ll be taking on none other than Chuck Taylor and Wheeler Yuta. That should be as exciting as their last foray together into the depths of the AEW roster on Wednesday.
And yes, the legendary William Regal will be along for the ride…the perfect manager for the tandem of violent masterminds.
Danielson for his part has had quite the time of it since his AEW debut since leaving the realm of WWE. He has had incredible matches with the likes of Hangman Adam Page and others on the roster and now finds himself at the cusp of what I think will be an incredible era of The American Dragon.
It is in joining with Moxley that he can attain the gold that eluded him when he faced Hangman, which would make the perfect story arc. Essentially he and Mox team and successfully attain the tag team gold, then they feud, one betraying the other, leading to the feud of all feuds and hopefully for the AEW World Title.
In part yes, in another part, it’s very possible and I hope it happens, and please forgive me for saying I hope it happens verbatim. Hey, don’t forget that pro wrestling journalists are fans too.
It was while speaking with Metro in the UK that Danielson recalled another time when a tag team run led to a high spot for his career…led all the way to what is known in pro wrestling as The Grandest Stage of Them All…WrestleMania, and the main event to boot.
Speaking specifically about the tag team in which he was paired with hall of famer, Kane (Glenn Jacobs; now mayor of Knox County, Tennessee). They were of course known as Team Hell No. Here’s what he had to say on the matter:
“I think that period was actually the making of Daniel Bryan, as far as a WrestleMania main-eventer…That period was perfect for me because it gave me a chance to show some character and be entertaining, all that kind of stuff. But then we would go in the ring against The Shield, it would allow me to highlight some of my strengths in those tag matches…
Just being a ball of fire and then burn to the ground essentially…Those guys were great at being aggressive and mean, and really giving it to you, which makes the fans sympathize with you…And those three guys specifically were perfect.”via metro /Wrestling Inc. (Transcription)
Danielson is already a legend in the sport of professional wrestling in my eyes; heck he was already a top contender when he entered into that tandem with Kane. Now, he’s legendary tenfold and what he’s accomplished with AEW so far is amazing to say the least. This tag team and a storyline based upon its demise down the line will catapult him to that status reserved for the likes of Hogan, Austin, Cena, Punk, Sammartino, Bret Hart, Ric Flair and The Rock in this writer’s eyes, which to my estimation means GOAT Status, folks.
Stay tuned dear readers, and enjoy the match on 3/16 — that’s this week dudes and dames — otherwise known as St. Patrick’s Day Slam. Should be a good one, with loads and loads going down. Till the next one, dear readers.
