Jon Moxley and Brodie Lee stood across the ring from one another on numerous occasions for numerous promotions. Although perhaps never more famously than when The Shield clashed with The Wyatt Family in WWE.
The two stars would both eventually find their way to AEW where they would do battle at Double Or Nothing for the AEW World Championship.
Now in conversation with metro.co.uk Moxley has revealed that as a fan of tag team wrestling, he wanted to form a team with his “good friend” Brodie Lee.
“I had an idea to eventually one day – I like tag team wrestling, you know? And there’s so many great tag teams here that I wanna get to work with. ‘But it’s like, OK, I’m gonna need a suitable partner, not just any random guy. I want a full, actual good tag team run with a good partner, make a real run at having a run in this tag division.
The guy I was thinking about doing it with was Brodie Lee. He was a good friend, and I wrestled him so many millions of times, our styles would have complemented each other very well.”
Moxley went on to break down how it’s important to have a partner who can compliment you in the ring, pondering a Shield-Wyatt super team.
“You want somebody who complements you – maybe they do things you don’t do, and vice versa. I thought a Shield-Wyatt mash-up super team would have been a really cool tag team. Me and Brodie could have really gone on a f***ing rampage as a team!”
He further expanded by explaining how he’s got a list of ideas and stories tucked away to use when the time is right.
“Not necessarily any particular time – I had that kinda stuffed away in my head for the future,” he said of the Brodie team. “I have stuff like that, and stories I wanna tell, concepts of promos and stories that may be for particularly people.
But it’s not right now, it’s stuck away in my folder of ideas and when the time’s right I’ll bust them out.”
Ahead of facing Kenny Omega in a Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch at AEW Revolution, Moxley took on and defeated Davey Boy Smith Jr at Bloodsport 5 via knockout. Following his victory it was announced that he will move on to face Josh Barnett at Bloodsport 6 on April 18th.
