Brayan Danielson had plenty of big moments in WWE. One would assume that his double-victory night at WrestleMania 30 would be on top of his list of pro wrestling achievements. He defeated Triple H in the opening match and went on to become WWE Champion in the main event. That night in New Orleans was special, but it’s not the most important moment to Bryan.

While speaking to Rasslin’ with Brandon Walker , Danielson revealed that his match against Kenny Omega at AEW Grand Slam is actually the biggest match of his career. He called attention to his WrestleMania 30 outing, but his in-ring debut for AEW tops that WrestleMania moment.

“To me, this is the biggest match in my career,” Danielson admitted. “I think a lot of people would consider WrestleMania 30 my biggest moment, where I main evented WrestleMania, but the reality is if I went out there and I did not perform very well in that day, maybe the moment wouldn’t be remembered, but the ratings weren’t gonna change the next day. It wasn’t going to change WWE’s business.

“If Kenny Omega and I go out there and we put on a match that people are raving about and not only just us but everybody on that show. It’s the responsibility of every single person on that show because that show is stacked. There are going to be a lot of people tuning in for the first time because it feels so big. There’s this responsibility to really go out there and deliver and show people, hey, they should be watching this on a weekly basis. That makes it feel bigger. The implications of doing well vs. doing poorly are much greater.”


Danielson will have a non-title match against AEW World Champion Kenny Omega. That match will be in front of a possible crowd of 20,000 fans, and the American Dragon plans to make it a memorable experience.
