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. Wight also made an interesting claim about Bryan Danielson recently.
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.
While speaking with The Rob Brown Show, Paul Wight talked about his relationship with Bryan Danielson. Wight claimed that Danielson always tries to choke him out backstage in AEW.
“I defy you to find a better in-ring technical wrestler today than Bryan Danielson. And I would never say that in front of him to his face, obviously. Daniel Bryan, Bryan Danielson, I keep calling him by the old name. He gave me my shortest title reign ever I think, when I beat Mark Henry. My title reign was all of like, 10 seconds. So there’s still a lot of heat between Mighty Mouse and I. I’m just letting you know.
I think that Bryan Danielson is a bully. That’s a joke actually, but I think he’s a bully. He has this thing where he’ll come up behind giants and try to choke them out, so I always have to be really nervous in AEW. That creepy little monster is trying to run up behind me and choke me out. It makes my life in AEW a little bit nerve-wracking.”
Paul Wight also recently said that he wants to wrestle in his hometown on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. We’ll have to see if Wight will get his wish or not in the end.
