Ahead of his huge AEW in-ring debut against Kenny Omega at AEW Dynamite Grand Slam, Bryan Danielson sent a huge thank you note to WWE.
Bryan Danielson wrote from the heart as he thanked WWE for everything they did for him and for all the numerous memories that he will cherish forever.
THANK YOU, WWE.
Thank you to the incredible superstars with whom I’ve shared both the ring and the road. For Savate-Kick Saturdays and locally roasted coffee. For being family when we’re away from family. For making me look good when I didn’t feel good. For deep conversations and pointless debates. For making me laugh — both in the best of times, and the worst. For all the small things that make life as a wrestler just a little bit more fun.
Thank you to the many people behind the scenes. The crew in WWE is amazing, from the folks operating the cameras to those in catering. From the producers to talent relations. Thank you to the production team, who always put together such amazing packages, and are such an underappreciated part of the stories we tell. Thank you to everyone involved in creative: for accepting me into the group, for sharing with me the lessons you’ve learned, and for the fun times we had talking about wrestling and non-wrestling subjects alike. It’s a difficult job, writing and producing WWE television, and I’m consistently blown away by your ability to make a seamless production out of such chaos.
It remains to be seen how Bryan Danielson will fare in his match against Kenny Omega, as it is likely to steal the show in many ways.
