Bryan Danielson comes face-to-face with Jon Moxley.
On the January 21 episode of AEW Rampage, Jon Moxley made his long-awaited return to the ring against Ethan Page. Mox won the match after locking in a bulldog choke and then hit a paradigm shift after the bell for good measure. On his way to the back, Moxley came across an applauding Bryan Danielson who hasn't been seen since his World Title loss to Hangman Page.
Mox delivered an emotional speech on Dynamite in which he said that he doesn't run from his demons, he kicks their asses. The American Dragon sent out a Tweet after the promo welcoming Mox back.

Danielson and Moxley feuded extensively in 2013 and 2014 when both were in WWE and members of Team Hell No and The Shield, respectively. During a recent interview with Muscle & Fitness, Bryan said he would love to face Moxley in AEW.
"I’d love to wrestle Moxley in this [AEW] scenario, versus the WWE scenario, you know what I mean? Where we are a little bit freer and more unleashed, because I think he’s fantastic," he said.
Prior to Moxley stepping away, he and Danielson were on a collision course in the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament, but Jon was eventually replaced by Miro.
