Danhausen debuted for AEW after a long storyline that played out on social media. It might have started out as a joke on A&W restaurants, but once that AEW contract landed in Danhausen’s hands, it was all too real. Now, Danhausen has more demands after he achieved another huge career landmark.

Danhausen earned Pro Wrestling Tees top-selling performer of 2022 honor, and he wants special treatment now. This top honor saw him beat out other huge names like Bret Hart, MJF, and Danhausen’s good friendhausen, CM Punk.

In a video released on his YouTube channel, Danhausen sent a special message to Tony Khan. He was kidding, but also, Danhausen is known for making demands, like that blimp he never got from ROH.

“Look at who’s above them on top of the mountain, who is that? Oh, that’s Danhausen, that’s weird.”


“Lots of big names on here. Big names but lots of more television time than Danhausen all year. And guess who beat them?” Danhausen tossed stacks of money off to the side one by one as he explained money “doesn’t matter” to him and that he “came to AEW to take over television.”

“Money is power and now Danhausen has all the power and this is proof. One, Danhausen shall be on the side of the trucks. Then we will have Danhausen on the billboards…then Danhausen will be in the opening of Dynamite and Rampage and the commercials on television.”

Fans and industry insiders have been reacting to Danhausen’s bold move, with some expressing support for the wrestler and others questioning his tactics. It remains to be seen how AEW will respond to Danhausen’s demands, but one thing is certain: the independent wrestler is not afraid to speak up for what he believes in.

We’ll have to see what’s next for the very nice and very evil one. Danhausen still gets a lot of attention in today’s fan base, and Tony Khan might be leaving a lot of money on the table by not featuring him more.

What’s your take on Danhausen? Are you cursed? Sound off in the comments!
