Bryan Danielson continues to build the Blackpool Combat Club in AEW

Bryan Danielson has enjoyed an alliance forged in blood with Jon Moxley ever since they clashed at Revolution in March. The American Dragon looked to partner with The Purveyor of Violence to hone the future of the promotion in the way they see fit.

William Regal later joined the pair to form the violent trinity, and they set to work quickly against the Workhorsemen, the Varsity Blondes and Best Friends. It was within the latter group that Moxley, Bryan and Regal scouted Wheeler Yuta. After Yuta reciprocated the interest, Mox and Bryan tested the young star in singles competition.

After impressing in both of these outings, the ROH Pure Champion joined the Blackpool Combat Club. They competed in their first trios match together this past week on Rampage and defeated the Gunn Club.
