Bryan Danielson’s accolades helped cement himself as one of the all-time greats in the pro wrestling business. Danielson made his debut at AEW All Out, which was one of the most highly anticipated debuts in recent memory.
After Bryan’s WWE contract expired a few months ago, many fans wondered where he would go next. Danielson had previously mentioned his desire to wrestle in other pro wrestling companies.
While speaking during the post-All Out media conference, Danielson revealed that he has no intention of working the business side of the company and will leave that to Tony Khan as Danielson couldn’t care less about it.
“So I briefly took part in creative in WWE and I will say this, I like just wrestling, right? I’ll leave the business stuff and all that kind of stuff up to up to Tony. I mean, honestly, Tony’s the businessman. I couldn’t care less about the business. As far as the business I want him to make money so that he keeps doing this thing that is so much fun for me to do, right? So what I want more than anything else out of all this — I don’t know if you know this, I’m the richest man who’s ever lived.
Yeah, pretty much I grew up without much so in comparison, I feel — as far as that kind of stuff, I just feel so blessed to be able to step into this position where you have a crowd that just loves this product and you saw it tonight. Every match, they’re just invested, you know? So for me, it’s not about like, ‘Oh, can we take it to this?’, or, ‘Can we take it to that?’ I would love to help Tony do that. But my goal is to produce excellent professional wrestling that people can watch because this is one of the things I truly believe: you show excellent professional wrestling to anybody and they will enjoy it because excellent professional wrestling is fucking awesome.”
Bryan Danielson already confronted AEW World Champion Kenny Omega on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. From the looks of it, it seems the two will be feuding going forward, much to the delight of fans.
