Jon Moxley said that he and Bryan Danielson will have to bleed together before they can be partners, and the two will face off at AEW Revolution to do just that.
On the February 2nd episode of AEW Dynamite, Bryan Danielson confronted Jon Moxley in the ring after the former AEW Champion defeated Wheeler Yuta. Bryan lamented the fact that Adam Page was the AEW World Champion and that Sammy Guevara was the TNT Champion, and said that if he and Moxley were to team up instead of being at odds, they could take young talent under their wing and accomplish anything they wanted in the company.
Moxley didn’t provide an answer on that occasion, but on the February 9th episode, he questioned whether the American Dragon wanted to team with him because they could help build young talent or if he was simply scared of being destroyed. Moxley ended the segment by saying he wasn’t saying yes or no and would leave the decision up to Bryan, stating “I don’t stand side by side with nobody unless I bleed with them first.”
This brought them to the February 23rd episode, where Bryan Danielson faced off against Daniel Garcia in an excellent technical bout. After Garcia fell victim to a triangle submission, Danielson was attacked by Garcia’s stablemates 2.0. None other than Jon Moxley made the save, running off Garcia and 2.0, who had been upset that Danielson was trying to recruit Garcia.
After 2.0 and Garcia were out of the ring, Moxley and Danielson came face to face, with the American Dragon still holding the chair that Garcia had tried to attack him with. He accepted Moxley’s challenge for a match at Revolution.
“So, in order for us to fight together, we need to bleed together? Well I don’t need this [chair] to make anybody bleed. You want a match at Revolution? You got it! But don’t be surprised if you’re the only person bleeding.”
