Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega did battle in a violent steel cage match on AEW Dynamite, and Jon Moxley says that’s just the start of the Blackpool Combat Club vs. rivalry. Moxley spoke with Sports Illustrated on Thursday following last night’s match, which saw Moxley get the win thanks to Don Callis’ interference. You can check out some highlights below:

On the Blackpool Combat Club vs. Elite rivalry: “It’s not going to end here. This was only the beginning. We’re bringing our A-game. We’re competitive with each other, and we’re competitive with the rest of the wrestling industry. There’s a lot on the line, so no one is taking a step backward. We’re showing why we’re the superior group.”

On the importance of the feud: “This rivalry between us is the cutting edge of the business. You might be more into something else, but look at who is involved here. Kenny Omega may be the greatest wrestler that ever lived. Bryan Danielson may be the greatest wrestler that ever lived. Claudio Castagnoli may be the most absolute alien pretending to be a human Superman f**king freak wrestler to ever live. The Young Bucks may be the greatest tag team of all time. Even if you think I f**king suck, you still have all these greats.

“A lot of people out there hate on the Young Bucks and Kenny Omega. We’re obviously attacking them and have our issues with them, but we are not old-ass f**king bitter dudes with podcasts talking about how the business used to be. We are not that. A lot of people hate Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks, and that’s because they hate themselves. It’s sad. There are plenty of people who hate me. I don’t give a f**k. I don’t care what challenges you put in front of me or what s**t befalls me. I’m very pissed off. I will shove it up everybody’s flying ass. After last year, I have that attitude. Kenny and the Young Bucks have that attitude. It’s us against the universe. That attitude is AEW at its core.”

On AEW’s momentum heading into the upcoming announcement: “The power of AEW is from our fans. They’re the ones who bought 10,000 tickets to All In. It’s getting real big with these stadium deals. But we’re not going corporate. The message is ‘F**k you.’ Middle fingers everywhere. It’s us against the world. Keep betting against Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks, and see what happens. Historically, that’s not a smart play. Keep betting against me or Bryan Danielson or Claudio. I’ve eaten so much f**king s**t in this business, notwithstanding. I almost died multiple times. I’ve been as dragged through the mud as I can in this business. I’m bulletproof. I don’t give a f**k. That’s the message of the day. Doubt any of the six of us and see how that works out.”
