Bryan Danielson’s accomplishments need no introductions as far as the pro wrestling world is concerned. Danielson has traveled all around the world and faced numerous opponents in excellent matches. Danielson was inspired by the likes of John Cena and LeBron James as well.
Bryan Danielson debuted in AEW back at All Out last year and has competed in many high-quality matches since then. Danielson previously admitted he joined AEW due to a lighter work schedule.
Being 40 years old now, Danielson still competes at a very high level and has insane conditioning. While speaking with Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Danielson talked about his overall health and fitness. Danielson revealed that John Cena and LeBron James inspired him to invest in his health and overall fitness.
“Tom Brady, the work he’s put in. LeBron James, he came out and said he spends a million dollars on his body every year just so he can continue to play basketball at the highest level. That was a light switch that went off in my head because I’m a frugal human being who doesn’t like to spend money on anything and almost considered it a point of pride. When I heard him say that, it made so much sense to me.
John Cena had mentioned, not to me, he just said it, he got the bus, not because ‘I’m a superstar, I should be in a bus.’ He got it so he could sleep better because that was the only way he could continue doing what he does. I, in no way, shape, or form need a bus, but spending money on my body is something that I only recently, the last year and a half, two years, is something that I really invested in.”
Bryan Danielson was defeated by Jon Moxley at AEW Revolution and William Regal got them to shake hands after that. The two are now a tag team and fans are excited to see what they can accomplish together.
