Bryan Danielson’s accolades as a pro wrestler speak for themselves as he has proven himself to be one of the best of all time thanks to his incredible matches in and outside of WWE. Danielson made his debut at AEW All Out and truly set the stage for what is to come.

After the conclusion of the event, Bryan Danielson cut a promo to the crowd, where he revealed that he made his way to AEW because he simply wanted to wrestle.

While speaking during the post-All Out media conference, Bryan Danielson talked about his reasons for ultimately deciding to leave WWE.

Danielson revealed that Vince McMahon can sometimes be too overprotective of him and Danielson simply wanted to push himself to his limits and he could do that in AEW.


But the final decision, honestly, was just like, I started thinking about things — WWE was so gracious with me as far as the offer that they gave me. They were gonna let me go do some other stuff on the outside, but, I hate to say this, Vince sometimes — He and I have a great relationship. I love him, I do. Sometimes he’s overprotective of me. I want to be able to push my limits. That’s one of the things that I love about this, is like the physicality of what we do out there and being able to push my limits and being able to do that here in a safe manner is one of the things that really drew me here.

Then there’s also, I just think there’s an excitement, you know what I mean? There’s just an excitement. You see the crowd. I mean I think you all see it, probably were all out there and you felt it. You felt how excited people are about this product and it feels vibrant. Even just watching it through a TV screen in a trailer. I’m sitting there going, ‘God this is awesome. I want to be a part of this.’ So that was it. Although it was — I don’t know, I really battled back and forth because there’s a lot of people there that I consider family, that actually are legitimately my family, and you know, people that I love there so it was a really tough decision.”

Bryan Danielson decided what was best for him and took a chance with AEW. We will have to wait and see how Danielson will fare in AEW.
