CM Punk broke the internet when he debuted for AEW, but he will soon be joined by more huge names. Punk teased Daniel Bryan’s debut during Dynamite this week, and that wasn’t lost on anyone. He said that fans will need to be a bit more patient for their “Yes” chants to land on the right ears, and that wait won’t be long.
Bodyslam.net reports that Bryan Danielson’s planned AEW debut will take place at All Out on September 5th. It was not noted how he will be used.
After speaking with multiple sources within AEW, I can now confirm that the company has upped plans for Bryan Danielson’s debut. The new plan I was told is for Danielson to debut at AEW’s All Out PPV on September 5th, 2021. I had initially heard this rumor a couple weeks back, but was able to confirm the plan with multiple sources.
This plan is reportedly getting bumped up due to the ongoing concern about COVID-19. Their AEW Grand Slam event on September 22nd at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing, NY was the orginal date for Bryan’s debut. Since New York now has mask mandates, there is concern about how things will look when the event rolls around.
The company is constantly monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and they are prepared for anything, including rescheduling events. No events have been rescheduled yet. This ongoing concern is reportedly why Bryan Danielson will debut in AEW a bit eariler than they originally planned.
Bryan reportedly signed a deal for about the same money with less dates than WWE was asking of him. He will still wrestle for AEW, but he won’t have the same grueling schedule that WWE had him under at all. Bryan Danielson’s new deal also allows him to work in Japan. Things are about to pick up in AEW, and Bryan Danielson has one dream match after another to take care of.
