Bryan Danielson’s accolades as a professional wrestling certainly needs no introductions as they proved to be one of the best in the business. Danielson’s debut in AEW is considered one of the most impactful debuts in recent memory as well.

Danielson had previously mentioned his desire to wrestle in other pro wrestling companies. And that’s exactly what he did in the end.

Bryan Danielson ultimate chose to make his way to AEW as he simply loves pro wrestling too much and doesn’t care about the business side of things in the company.

While speaking to WFAN’s Moose & Maggie, Bryan Danielson revealed that he considered working an independent schedule and not sign with AEW or WWE.


There was also, a lot of people look at it in terms of two options. ‘You’re either going to be with WWE or AEW.’ But part of me was like ‘or I could just do like an independent schedule where I don’t sign with anybody.’ And I also thought about not coming back to wrestling at all, in the sense of at least the next couple of years.

Bryan Danielson had a match of the year candidate against AEW World Champion Kenny Omega on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite Grand Slam. It remains to be seen if the two will face off against each other in the future or not.
