Bryan Danielson showcased his incredible in-ring prowess all over the world and many fans and pro wrestlers acknowledge just how good he is. His debut in AEW was also one of the most memorable ones in recent memory, It seems his match against Minoru Suzuki did a number on him.
Danielson had previously mentioned his desire to wrestle in other pro wrestling companies. And that’s exactly what he did in the end. Bryan squared off against Minoru Suzuki on the Buy In of last week’s episode of AEW Rampage.
It was truly a hard-hitting contest as each competitor gave it their all in order to win the match. Ultimately, it was Bryan Danielson who came out with the win after hitting his flying knee on Suzuki.
While speaking to Lulu Pencil on Twitter, Bryan Danielson admitted that he was very beaten up after his match against the NJPW legend. Danielson also revealed that he was inspired by Suzuki for still competing at such a high level after 33 years in the industry.
“It was awesome and I’m all beat up (Laughs). I love the way Minoru Suzuki wrestles. It’s inspiring to me and especially he’s been wrestling for too long, like 33 years, and still be able to perform at that level and hit that hard. He hit me with a forearm shot yesterday, which wasn’t like any forearm that I have been hit with. So yeah, I’m a little beat up but I’m happy. I like the feeling of being in a fight. Outside the ring, I try to be kind, like ‘oh very happy, kind.’ Inside the ring, I like a fight. And last night, we got a fight,”
Bryan Danielson also defeated Bobby Fish in the AEW World Title Elimination tournament on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. We will have to wait and see if he will end up winning the tournament or not.
