A rivalry is set to be renewed.
On October 30, Jon Moxley is set to compete at The Wrestling Revolver's 'Tales From the Ring.' The AEW star had issued an open challenge for the event and the promotion had teased all day that his challenger would be revealed this evening. In a new post to their Twitter account, WR unveiled Jimmy Jacobs as Moxley's opponent.
The two men had a feud on the independent circuit over a decade ago and Jacobs delivered the following message to his longtime rival.
"Let it go. It's been over a decade. It's been over ten years since Jacobs and Moxley had one of the wildest feuds in independent wrestling. Street fights. Dog collar match. I quit match. But after that, we took our separate paths. I created magic behind the scenes and you became the Lunatic Fringe. Despite that, despite the success, the millions, the wife, the kid, you still want to get down and dirty. You still want to step into the arena of violence where we play for keeps. For some reason. What's wrong with you?
See, me, I have a nice, cushy job. I never need to wrestle again. Do I want to step into that same arena where you know you're going to bleed and make somebody else bleed? Where the smell of blood is so thick you can taste it. Do I want that? You're damn right I do! Mox, you got an open challenge on October 30th, Wrestling Revolver, well, I'm interested. Moxley, I've heard you bitching so much about how you didn't like the creative in WWE, and for some reason, I take offence to that. Well, I'm going to give you some creative you can dig when I dig this 8-inch nail inside your skull. I'm going to get real creative when I use your body as a canvas and your blood as the paint. Jacobs. Moxley. One more time! I want to taste your blood, Jon. In case you've forgotten, I'm a Princess, I always get what I fucking want."
