Bryan Danielson and Kazuchika Okada closed out AEW & NJPW’s Forbidden Door event, but they had to change up the finish. Bryan Danielson was injured during that match, suffering an arm fracture, and it’s a bit worse than he first thought.

Brie Bella, Bryan Danielson’s wife, dropped bit of an update about her husband on Instagram. She revealed Danielson’s x-ray, and it was certainly a break.

Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that Bryan Danielson is working with creative right now, and he’s been doing that for a bit. That being said, AEW needed to scrap an idea of Danielson in the upcoming Blood & Guts match.

Bryan Danielson is already working on AEW creative, but we’ve learned a bit more.


It was reiterated that the Championship Friday episode of AEW Rampage was actually a Tony Khan idea, as opposed to Danielson’s as some originally attributed.

Instead, Danielson has been working on the first several weeks of AEW Collision creative of late. We’re told that Danielson has been very valuable in speaking with talent about how they want their creative handled and the ways to communicate things between creative and talent.

It was also noted that Bryan Danielson’s injury has caused several adjustments creatively for AEW. There were also “plans for Danielson to wrestle more on television following Forbidden Door, and he was to be involved in Blood and Guts, targeted for July in Boston.” 

We will have to see how Bryan Danielson’s injury progresses at this point. He is obviously going to work hard to make that return to the ring. That being said, he has another goal for himself right now.

Bryan Danielson was on quite a hot streak, especially after beating Kazuchika Okada at Forbidden Door, did he have a world title run in him? Sound off in the comments!
