Bryan Danielson’s accolades as a professional wrestler certainly need 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.
Bryan Danielson ultimately 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.
On last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite Grand Slam, Bryan Danielson and Kenny Omega competed in an instant classic match. Even before the match started, fans started going crazy and gave Danielson a lot of cheers and ovations.
While speaking on the Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette gave massive props to Bryan Danielson and talked about the huge ovation Bryan got from the crowd. Cornette claimed that Danielson would never get as much ovation in WWE.
[Bryan] Danielson comes out, he’s in great shape, he looks tremendous, he’s not the biggest guy but he’s got a physique to match his frame. The fans were ballistic for him. Bryan Danielson would never again get this ovation if he was in WWE. It’s a new environment with fans that have been waiting to see him leave the evil empire, get unleashed and do what he wants to do, what he can do.
We will have to wait and see just when Bryan Danielson and Kenny Omega will cross paths again in the future as their second bout will almost certainly surpass the first.
