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 MJF doesn’t have a high opinion of Bryan Danielson.
Danielson had previously mentioned his desire to wrestle in other pro wrestling companies and that’s exactly what he did in the end. Danielson also previously stated that AEW is a company that focuses on pro wrestling while WWE isn’t a company for pro wrestling fans.
While speaking to Brandon Walker on Rasslin,’ MJF talked about Bryan Danielson in AEW. MJF gave massive props to Danielson as far as his in-ring skills are concerned. However, MJF added that he finds it laughable that Danielson is put on a pedestal.
”People love to talk about Bryan Danielson like he’s like this incredible professional wrestler and guess what? He is. He is one of the best pure athletes this sport has ever or will ever see. But if me and him were to ever step foot in a ring together, I think it would be very clear that he’s not up to snuff with me and that’s why I find it laughable that people put him up here on this pedestal and because I’m so good on the microphone. People always forget that I am incredible. Forget the age. I am incredible in the ring, period. Not ‘for my age,’ period.”
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.
