Bryan Danielson will get his first shot at the AEW World Championship tonight. After surviving a grueling World Title Eliminator Tournament, The American Dragon will take on AEW champ Hangman Adam Page at tonight’s Dynamite: Winter is Coming event. He says he’s looking forward to his first match with Page.
Speaking to the Dallas Morning News, Danielson talked about how the match will be the peak of his career. He said there are a lot of unknowns that go into wrestling a new opponent. He wants to see what Hangman is made of.
“To me, I don’t do a lot of reflecting on that sort of thing, but to me it was the perfect start of this journey. I consider this next three years kind of the final chapter of my full-time wrestling career, but also the apex of it. This is going to be the peak of it. This is going to be the best I’ve ever been. And so, I feel like the debut was a perfect starting off point to that, and then hopefully it will get higher. I feel like, more so than the debut, wrestling Kenny Omega at Grand Slam was awesome, right? That’s the one that will send chills down my spine. I hope that [wrestling Page for the AEW title in Garland] does the same thing…
I’m expecting a fight. It’s interesting. Because coming to AEW, there were a lot of unknowns for me because so many of the talent are new and young, and I never met them before going to WWE. I’ve never wrestled ‘Hangman’ Page. I’ve never been in the ring with him other than the last couple weeks where we’ve scrapped for maybe 20 seconds at most, you know what I mean?
So, that’s always interesting with somebody completely new. But I expect it to be a fight, and I’m – I don’t know – because I know [his style], right, and I try not to be cocky when I say that [laughs], I like to drag guys into deep waters and see what they’ve got.”
