He main evented the show in a technical showcase with young lion Daniel Garcia that served to book his PPV match with Jon Moxley, but I’m still thinking about this Bryan Danielson interview from earlier in the Feb. 23 Dynamite.
Specifically where he hypes his match with Daniel Garcia and stresses the importance of the faction he wants to start with Mox by comparing the quality of mentorship he received early in his career to what Garcia is currently getting:
“But you know, the big difference is I had a great mentor in William Regal. And he’s hanging out with — 2point0?”
Regal isn’t just one of the American Dragon’s sensei’s, of course. He’s a well-respected talent evaluator, coach, and performer who’s currently on the free agent market after his acclaimed run with NXT ended when WWE released him last month. People in and outside the business have been saying he’d be a great hire for Tony Khan’s company. That’s mostly for behind-the-scenes reasons, but Regal & Danielson have great chemistry, and would make an amazing on-screen alliance — with or without Moxley.
I mean, Our social media maven (and podcaster extraordinaire) Stella Cheeks is probably right...
... but the heart wants what it wants.
If your heart want to check out the rest of the highlights from last night’s Dynamite, just keep scrolling. As usual, AEW doles out YouTube videos slowly. But we’ve compiled what they’ve released as of this morning in a playlist, and tried to catch you up with the rest of the episode via Twitter clips below that.
