Lee Moriarty Wants To Grow By Fighting Blackpool Combat Club Not Joining Them AEW

AEW star Lee Moriarty wants to grow by fighting the Blackpool Combat Club instead of joining them.

Moriarty was one of the young stars mentioned by Bryan Danielson that he wanted to help elevate before the American Dragon joined forces with Jon Moxley and William Regal to create the Blackpool Combat Club.

Since their formation, the three men have been joined by ROH Pure Champion Wheeler Yuta in the group.

Speaking with MuscleManMalcolm, Moriarty discussed being mentioned by Danielson and the potential of joining the Blackpool Combat Club.

He said:

“The way I look at the AEW groups is, I’m going to do what’s best for my career. I understand everybody wants me to join the Blackpool Combat Club ever since Danielson said my name, and I get that my style of wrestling would fit well with them. But I like the idea of growing by fighting them. You can’t get better if you are only teeming with these people, you can only get to a certain place if you’re not fighting the best, in my opinion, there’s only so far we can go. [Wheeler] Yuta is a great example. He fought those guys repeatedly. He fought Jon Moxley 3 times, I think, before joining the group, and you saw how he progressed before getting there. I’ve only had the chance to step into the ring with Danielson twice. Moxley, once. Yuta, once in AEW. There’s a lot more room for me to grow before joining them — but that’s not my priority. My priority is getting better on my own.”

Lee Moriarty will face Dante Martin on the Friday, July 22 Fyter Fest Night Four edition of AEW Rampage.
