There is no doubt that Bryan Danielson is one of the most established names in the world of professional wrestling right now. He spent several years in promotions all around the world, including NOAH, ROH and numerous independent companies. Danielson eventually made his way to AEW and is now one of their top stars there. He had a solid match at AEW Revolution, and it seems Danielson is legitimately injured after the match.
At AEW Revolution, Bryan Danielson took part in an Iron Man match against MJF for the AEW World Championship. It ended up becoming one of the best matches in AEW history, as both competitors gave it their all to win the match.
The match went into overtime, and MJF eventually emerged victorious by striking Bryan Danielson with an oxygen tank and locking him in the LeBell Lock submission hold, leading to Danielson tapping out.
While speaking on the Unconsciously Coupled podcast, Bryan Danielson talked about his physical condition after wrestling for over 65 minutes, stating that he was genuinely experiencing a lot of pain.
Bryan Danielson had a black eye, limited mobility in his left arm, shooting pain down his leg, and a large wound on his stomach. He acknowledged that while his children may understand his physical pain, as they grow older, they will come to realize that some of the struggles he faces are not just physical.
”Legitimately, I’m in a ton of pain. I just wrestled for over 65 minutes. I’ve got a black eye. I can’t lift my left arm past here [partially raises arm]. I have shooting pain going down my leg. There’s this big gaping wound on my stomach. Those kind of things, it’s like, ‘Oh, sorry, daddy is in a lot of pain.’ They understand that, but as they get older, they’re going to understand that some of this is not physical.”
On the March 8th episode of AEW Dynamite, Bryan Danielson stated that he needed to go home following AEW Revolution. We will have to wait and see when Danielson will make his return to AEW television.
