Bryan Danielson’s accolades as a professional wrestler certainly need no introductions as they proved to be one of the best in the business. He spent several years working in WWE as one of their top stars and towards the end of his run, Bryan Danielson was even part of WWE Creative.

Danielson previously admitted that he felt an odd detachment from WWE despite being in the main event of WrestleMania 37 earlier this year. On the other hand he had an instant classic match against Kenny Omega at AEW Grand Slam.

While speaking with Joey Hayden of the Dallas Morning News, Bryan Danielson talked about the Difference in experience between WrestleMania and wrestling Kenny Omega.

“This is my perspective on it – other people may feel differently. But to me, the perspective is always different based on where you’re at in your life,” Danielson said. “The WrestleMania settings for me, like WrestleMania 35 when I lost to Kofi Kingston – that was pure joy. I had just been cleared to wrestle the year before, it was a lot of fun. WrestleMania 30, which is what most people associate me with, I have a little bit of a harder time with because I was in a ton of pain with my neck and shoulder, barely sleeping, and then my dad passed away and all that kind of stuff – Brie and I got married like six days after. So, there’s like a lot of ups and downs that has a lot of like weird feelings to me.


To me, the match with Kenny Omega, the difference was that was just pure joy. Being able to feel and experience an incredible moment. And also as I’ve matured, I’ve been able to enjoy wrestling more, especially since I’ve come back from my retirement. Progressively, the last several years, it’s been every time I wrestle it feels just kind of like a blessing. You never know when this is going to be taken away, so I tend to enjoy those moments just a little bit more.”

Bryan Danielson is set to challenge Adam Page for the AEW World Championship at AEW Winter Is Coming. It remains to be seen who will win the match.
