Bryan Danielson’s accolades as a professional wrestler certainly need no introduction, as they proved to be one of the best in the industry. He spent numerous years working in WWE as one of their top stars and towards the end of his run, Bryan Danielson was even part of WWE Creative. Bryan’s passion for pro wrestling is second to none, and it even led to him cursing out Triple H once.
Bryan Danielson changed the course of WWE in a huge way when he became a multi-time champion and broke barriers for other smaller sized pro wrestlers. However, he also had a career full of injuries, including one that needed his career.
On the June 17, 2013, episode of RAW, Danielson suffered a neck and shoulder injury during a match with Randy Orton. He lost feeling in both arms later on in the match, leading to Dr. Michael Sampson to intervene at ringside.
In his book, Yes! My Improbable Journey to the Main Event of WrestleMania, Bryan Danielson recalled how Triple H had to calm him down while Danielson was cursing it up backstage.
“Usually I don’t get super angry, and when I do it’s barely visible. This time, I was furious and I let everyone know it. When I walked through the curtain, I yelled, ‘What the f**k is that all about? That’s f***ing bull***t.
You need to calm down,’ responded Triple H, who had been communicating with the doctor over the headset and called for the match to be stopped. ‘No, you need to calm the f**k down,’ I replied. We were up in each other’s faces and both ready to fight.”
Of course, Bryan Danielson left WWE, and the rest is history. Triple H also has a much different position in WWE as head of the company’s creative direction.
We will have to wait and see how Bryan Danielson will be booked in his feud against MJF for the AEW World Championship in the coming weeks. For the time being, fans are just excited about what will come next.
