Who Does Jon Moxley Want To Make A Tag Team With?
Right now in AEW, Jon Moxley is the top dog as AEW World Champion. He overcame MJF at All Out, and is now set to face the winner of the Casino Battle Royale, Lance Archer. It won’t be an easy defense, but he’s taken Archer down in the Tokyo Dome earlier this year, so his odds of victory are good.
However, as a previous member of the wildly popular Shield in WWE alongside Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns, he’s known for being a faction member, having a steady partner to team with. He won’t be AEW World Champion forever, and is a tag team specialist when needed. Who would he want to team up with on the AEW roster?
Jon Moxley Lists Potential Partners
During an interview on Busted Open, Moxley was asked about starting a tag team in WWE. He had a few options in mind, all men he previously faced in AEW. “One day, maybe me and Brodie can do like a Shield-Wyatt super team or something. Or maybe someone that will compliment me, like a guy like PAC, or even a younger guy like Joey Janela, or Darby Allin.”
This is almost a greatest hits list for his matches in AEW, only missing a nod to Chris Jericho. He’s had a series of great matches with PAC, one of his best AEW World Championship defenses against Brodie Lee, tore it up in a Lights Out match with Janela. There is also a great case for Allin.
Darby Allin & Shota Umino Are His Best Partner Choices
Moxley & Allin are the most natural fight as a tag team, with Moxley already having a dynamic with him. They have met in crazy matches and have teamed up, with Moxley almost taking the young Allin under his wing. Fans almost expect them to become AEW Tag Team Champions down the line, after Moxley loses the AEW World Championship.
The only man who fits better as his partner is Shota Umino, the young lion Moxley took under his wing during his run in New Japan Pro Wrestling. Mox & Umino as the Death Riders provided some fun opening tag team matches, and fans absolutely loved their odd chemistry.
