Lee Moriarty knows people want him to join the Blackpool Combat Club, but he thinks he can grow more by battling them. Moriarty is someone many fans have been wanting to see as a member of the stable, but during a discussion with MuscleMan Malcolm the AEW star said that he thinks he’ll learn more by fighting them.

“The way I look at the AEW groups is, I’m going to do what’s best for my career,” Moriarty said (per Fightful). “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.”

He continued, “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.”
