There is no doubt that Bryan Danielson is one of the most established names in the world of professional wrestling right now. He loves professional wrestling more than many things in his life and has made some hard decisions in his life. In fact, Danielson debunked rumors that he was the head of the Disciplinary Committee that ultimately deemed it fit to file CM Punk from AEW.
CM Punk was fired from AEW back in September following his altercation with Jack Perry at AEW All In. This eventually led to CM Punk’s return at the Survivor Series Premium Live Event last week, making it clear he is now a WWE Superstar once again.
Reports have suggested that Bryan Danielson was the head of the Disciplinary Committee that fired CM Punk. While speaking to CBS Sports, Danielson confirmed he was part of the committee but refuted rumors that he was the head there.
“I like CM Punk. I think he brought a lot to AEW while he was there. You know how the Internet is. There’s like, some people would say I was the ‘head’ of the disciplinary committee and I’m like, ‘Listen, there were more people involved in this decision, but most of them were all lawyers, to say that I was the head – I don’t even have a college degree (laughs). I’m not in there bossing people around.or anything like that.
I wish him the best in his future and I hope his run there goes well.“
Bryan Danielson is preparing to participate in the AEW Continental Classic round-robin tournament. On the December 2 Collision episode, he is slated to square off against Eddie Kingston in a Blue League block match. We’ll have to wait and see how he will fare in the match against a familiar foe.
