Jon Moxley Believes He And Kenny Omega Are The Two Best Wrestlers In The World

From the moment they first crossed paths in AEW, Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega were destined to destroy each other.

Speaking with Steven Muehlhausen of DAZN, the former AEW-Champion was asked about his rivalry with Kenny Omega, saying that the two seemingly are destined to create explosions, quite literally in this case. Moxley is challenging Omega for the promotion's top prize at March 7th Revolution PPV in an Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match. On-screen animosity aside, Moxley does believe that he and Omega are the two best in the business right now. He said the following:

"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.

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.

We're in a position with AEW where we just get to go out there, be given the ball, and get a chance to score touchdowns on a weekly basis. Nobody's doing it at a higher level than us two right now."

Omega defeated Moxley for the Championship on the December 2nd episode of AEW Dynamite with a helping hand from Don Callis. In the time since, Omega has been running alongside his former Bullet Club brothers and current IMPACT Tag Team Champions Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson.

Moxley on the other hand has been fending off not only Omega but New Japan Pro Wrestling's KENTA, who he defeated to retain the IWGP United States Championship.

Kenny Omega recently explained the rules of the Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match.
