Jon Moxley and Brodie Lee often found themselves opposite one another during their time in WWE and All Elite Wrestling. Moxley was a member of The Shield as Dean Ambrose while Lee was a part of The Wyatt Family as Luke Harper. They then rekindled their hostilities in AEW and went one on one for the AEW World Championship at Double Or Nothing 2020.
Moxley had plans to end their on-screen hostilities, though, and the IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion told Metro that he wanted to form a tag team with The Exalted One prior to Lee's passing.
"I had an idea to eventually one day – I like tag team wrestling, you know? And there's so many great tag teams here that I wanna get to work with. But it's like, OK, I'm gonna need a suitable partner, not just any random guy. I want a full, actual good tag team run with a good partner, make a real run at having a run in this tag division," Moxley stated.
"The guy I was thinking about doing it with was Brodie Lee. He was a good friend, and I wrestled him so many millions of times, our styles would have complemented each other very well. You want somebody who complements you – maybe they do things you don't do, and vice versa.
"I thought a Shield-Wyatt mash-up super team would have been a really cool tag team. Me and Brodie could have really gone on a f***ing rampage as a team!"
