AEW has a big pay-per-view lined up, and plenty of things are going on that will pay off on September 4th in Chicago. The company recently confirmed that Danielson would compete against Daniel Garcia in a 2 out of 3 falls match on the episode of Dynamite airing the following week. Garcia defeated Danielson in the Fight for the Fallen, and now comes this. It’s also possible that AEW is preparing for Chris Jericho and Bryan Danielson to square off at All Out.
Just recently, on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer mentioned that Danielson was supposed to face Jericho in the initial All Out matchup. Given that Garcia vs. Danielson is airing on Dynamite, it appears that the fight is still scheduled.
They may go with Danielson and Jericho which is the first (plan) I heard for the pay-per-view. When Garcia won (a few weeks ago), I thought they were going in a different direction.
Contrary to popular belief, AEW did not schedule a Danielson and Garcia rematch at All Out. When Jericho challenged Jon Moxley for the interim world heavyweight title on Wednesday’s Dynamite, he was unsuccessful. Following the match, CM Punk reappeared to arrange their Undisputed AEW World Title battle for All Out.
Danielson revealed that a lighter schedule, more creative freedom, and the chance to change things and try something new were why he signed with AEW in the end. Danielson is in a pretty good place right now and hopefully won’t have to do a reality show any time soon. We will have to wait and see how he will be booked in the coming weeks.
