Wheeler Yuta Reveals When He Gained His Confidence In AEW

Wheeler Yuta discusses gaining his footing in All Elite Wrestling.

In 2022, Wheeler Yuta took a massive step in his AEW career. After teaming with Best Friends in AEW for nearly a full year, Yuta was able to earn the respect of William Regal, Jon Moxley, and Bryan Danielson, and was therefore made a member of the Blackpool Combat Club.

On the latest episode of the DEFYANT ONES podcast, Yuta revealed that there was a big confidence boost that came months before the opportunity arose to join the ranks of the Blackpool Combat Club.

"I’m trying to think of some of the earlier matches but kind of more fresh in my mind, I think about AEW stuff. Like I had this match with Penta when I was still with the Best Friends before all of the Blackpool Combat Club stuff and that was really the first time that I’d say I felt comfortable like in AEW. Like, okay, this is what I was doing on the independents, these are the kind of matches that I can have. Then that sort of snowballed, that was I think a month or two before the Blackpool Combat Club stuff started to roll, so that was a really good confidence booster for me. From then on, it just kind of snowballed and I got to have some really good matches with some really good people.”

The match between Yuta and Penta El Zero Miedo took place on the January 25, 2022 edition of AEW Dark: Elevation. To see the full results from that show, click here.
