Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega are currently preparing to take part in a huge match, but ahead of their Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match, Moxley spoke with DAZN about why he believes the two superstars are the best in the world, his creative ideas, and more.
Check out some of the highlights below:
On why he believes Omega and himself are the best wrestlers in the world:
To answer your question very simply and expediently, yes. But I’m not, especially in something like wrestling; it’s not like hockey where if you win a Stanley Cup, you’re the best hockey team. In wrestling, that’s not necessarily the case. It’s different.
You can be one of the best. The most important thing is how do you say who’s better: Shawn Michaels or Ric Flair? You can’t pick. If your favorite wrestler growing up when you were a kid was Big Van Vader or Ahmed Johnson, then they’re the best wrestler in the world to you. It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter who drew more money or who had people think had better matches. The most important thing is you just got to be the best you.
But yes, I think we are the two best wrestlers in the world right now. Because if I had to answer why, I’d say because what we do, especially here at AEW, is we’re being the best versions of ourselves. We’re not being fettered or held back. We’re not being put in any boxes. We’re fully creating the things we want to create the things we want to be. We’re not being held back by just about anything.
On what he can do creatively:
There are some things you can’t do on regular television, but that’s about it. As long as I’m not going out there swearing or whipping my d– out, I can pretty much do whatever I want creatively. I wouldn’t need to anyway. You’re getting the best version of Kenny Omega, the best version of Jon Moxley on a weekly basis on Dynamite. I don’t think anybody’s doing it at a higher level than me and Kenny are right now. We’re both in our prime, both at our peak, both just really hitting on all cylinders.
On what fans can expect in the Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match:
I think you have to watch this weekend, not only because it’s going to be an amazing pay-per-view top to bottom, but AEW’s got maybe the most stacked talent roster or one of them in the world right now. I think one of the best, best PPVs going right now. That’s not even a shot at anybody. I think we have the best. I think it’s a fact.
I think we’re hitting on all cylinders right now, top to bottom. We’ve never not delivered a big home run I think on PPV as far as the best every kind of wrestling, from high flying wrestling to tag team wrestling to the main event. You’re never disappointed. It’s always worth your money to get an AEW pay-per-view. For the main event specifically, I think you’re going to see something because you’re guaranteed to see a type of match you’ve never seen on American soil first of all and that you haven’t seen anywhere in decades.
