Bryan Danielson has been missing in action for several weeks after suffering what is believed to be a concussion at the AEW Double or Nothing pay-per-view. The American Dragon was initially expected to make a quick comeback. Now that he has been on the shelf for more than a month, fans have been wondering about his status.
Danielson was scheduled for two huge matches over the past several weeks. Bryan wasn’t able to compete, and Claudio Castagnoli filled in as the newest member of the Blackpool Combat Club. There has been no official word on how much longer Bryan Danielson will be out.
On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed the possibility that Danielson’s concussion could be more serious than initially thought. Bryan has a long history of that type of injury. As the weeks drag on, the uncertainty continues to build.
“I’m very concerned with Danielson, obviously, because, you know when you have the number of concussions he’s had and he’s been out now for, I mean we’re about five weeks in right, and you start worrying that at five weeks of a concussion, this may be a real bad situation. I know in real life and everything like that, he’s fine, he can function, he can do everything, but I mean as far as like being cleared to wrestle, I don’t know anything. No one knows…
Is it going to be, like, again, getting cleared from a concussion can be any time. There’s no time frame. But, the fact that it’s been this long is very concerning.”
Bryan Danielson assured fans that he is just fine when he announced that he could not compete at Forbidden Door. That doesn’t mean AEW wants to rush him back. It could be a little while longer before Bryan gets back into an AEW ring.
