The Blackpool Combat Club are quickly establishing themselves as a force to be reckoned with in All Elite Wrestling, and the group recently added Claudio Castagnoli to their ranks.

Wheeler Yuta ended up joining the group back in April after facing off against Jon Moxley. The interim AEW World Champion recently appeared on The Sessions with Renee Paquette, and Moxley explained that Yuta’s addition to the group was an accident.

“The thing with Wheeler was an accident. I was supposed to wrestle Brian Kendrick, hour before the show, that match is not happening … The show starts in an hour and Tony was like, ‘Wheeler!’ … so we go and have a little match. That was either before or after Bryan did the promo, and he’s one of the guys, I think Bryan mentioned him by name, and then it just like, very naturally happened and before you know it, he’s in the group.”

The Blackpool Combat Club will be in action on Wednesday when they face off with the Jericho Appreciation Society in a Blood & Guts match on Dynamite. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
