Bryan Danielson really stepped up for Tony Khan and AEW as he took on responsibilities in the creative department. It appears that we will see a lot more of Bryan stepping up to the plate whenever Tony Khan needs him.
Jon Moxley also has a ton of things that he can contribute to the mix. With Bryan Danielson and Jon Moxley around, Tony Khan has to veteran performers who are ready for whatever.
Bryan Danielson addressed this matter in the AEW All Out media scrum. He made subtle remarks about the backstage turmoil that had arisen within the company after the CM Punk incident at All In. Danielson also expressed his admiration for Jon Moxley, who has demonstrated his capability to be a cornerstone for AEW when the situation demands it.
“One of the ethics that I believe in is you step up when you need to step up. It’s interesting when you’re crossing between real life and story, but we as the BCC [Blackpool Combat Club], as a collective, who are real friends, we take stepping up seriously, whether that is in story or real life. Nobody is a better example of that than Jon Moxley, who has stepped up every time we’ve needed him to.”
Bryan Danielson continued to say that if Tony Khan needs them, then it’s going to get done. It appears that TK has two loyal soldiers, with Jon Moxley and the American Dragon.
“I just see it as a way of life for us. ‘If you need us, if something needs to happen, Tony [Tony Khan], I can do this.’ Mox will say, ‘I can do this.’ There is nothing that Tony needs that we won’t do for him. That goes with creative, with doing the match [at All Out], anything like that.”
We will have to see how AEW uses Bryan Danielson and Jon Moxley from this point on. The company certainly gave them the ability to wrestle as they wanted to when WWE wasn’t giving them that option. Now, it appears that AEW fans have a lot more to expect from them.
Only time will tell how AEW looks in a year from now. Tony Khan certainly has some people who seem like they are in this thing for the long haul, so that should give fans confidence that AEW isn’t going to stop any time soon, either.
