Claudio Castagnoli Reveals The Creative Process Of The Blackpool Combat Club



In a recent interview with SPORF, former ROH World Champion Claudio Castagnoli revealed some details regarding the Blackpool Combat Club’s creative process and how the stable fetches new ideas regularly.

The BCC’s current members consist of Jon Moxley, Bryan Danielson, Wheeler Yuta, and Claudio Castagnoli. The group, which showcases the violent spectacle of pro wrestling, was created by William Regal.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On developing concepts from outside sources: “I feel like influence can come from everything. You know, it can come from movies, TV shows, video games. Somebody you see in the street, another match, whatever. Our entrance at Wembley was Boondock Saints inspired, You can always draw inspiration from different things. There’s always some crazy ideas, but I feel like we all complement each other really well.”

On current ideas the BCC is considering: “I think right now we’re trying to figure out, we were talking the other day in our group chat, about a new Blackpool Combat Club shirt. And I think we want to have a slogan, like ‘Be Violent’, but then have like a fairy or something on it, like from a cartoon or from a children’s book or something. We don’t need more skulls on our shirts and blood and stuff. Let’s have something fun paired with something that’s completely, completely different. There would be a Tinkerbell type thing and then ‘Be Violent’. I think that would be brilliant.”

On when they confer on ideas and when they work solo: “It’s a lot of fun, but I feel that’s how we again, flesh out ideas. We run them across each other. That’s how we all compete with each other because we’re still trying to make each other better. So, you know, that’s the fun part of being part of the BCC. We run stuff by each other and like, ‘hey, what do you think of this? Oh, that’s cool, okay, cool, let’s do that.’ And because we’ve had a few singles matches as well, it’s like, ‘hey, what do you think of this? What do you think of that?’ Or I just sit back and watch Orange and Mox wrestle and I didn’t want to know anything about that match. I was just like, ‘I don’t want to know nothing, I don’t want to hear it.’ Like I walked into the locker room and Mox was talking, kind of thinking out loud about stuff. And I was like, ‘alright, I’m leaving, I don’t want to know. I just want to watch and enjoy it.’”
