Twitter has their own devices to make sure that verified accounts stay protected. Bryan Danielson debuted for AEW last night at All Out, so he didn’t want his Twitter account to be @WWEDanielBryan any longer. That change cost him his precious blue verification checkmark.
Bryan Danielson changed his name on Twitter and then he sent out a thank you to everyone who helped AEW what it is today. He sees big things in his future and is now All Elite. His message conveyed his gratitude that this opportunity was available to him in the first place. He also can’t wait to kick some “f’kn heads in.”
Thank you to the men and women who have worked so hard to make @aew what it is today. I’m still buzzing from last night, and that was only possible because of what you built.
Twitter will likely fix this issue for Bryan Danielson and give him his blue checkmark back. He has 4.5 million followers who can vouch for him. If anything, Bryan might see that sacrifice as worth it, because he got to change his name.
CM Punk said that Bryan Danielson and Adam Cole debuting for AEW gave him “a boner,” and he meant that in the best way possible. He can’t wait to mix it up on the AEW roster and now the American Dragon will be around too.
