Bryan Danielson has remained one of the most sought-after talents in all of pro wrestling. His time at WWE showed him rising the ranks to unbelievable heights, and his AEW stint has shown him rise even higher. Danielson recently had an injury scare after suffering from a severe cut right above his eye. As he recovers, it seems that he already plans to give his fans what they want in 2024 at AEW All In.
He was recently part of a conversation with The Daily Mail, where he spoke about a potential match-up against retired AEW commentator Nigel McGuinness. The American Dragon said that now the conditions are finally right for a match between them, as McGuinness has gotten himself in incredible shape.
“Maybe one day I can get a rematch with Nigel McGuiness at Wembley. I know Nigel was really big on it last year but I at the time I wasn’t sure if he could hang with me. Now, he has worked his ass off and got himself in great shape, since then my health has a little bit deteriorated, so now I see that as a real possibility.”
Danielson also spoke about the matches he had with Nigel from 2006 to 2009. He added that, while their matches were incredible, he felt they weren’t seen by many people since the Internet hadn’t reached the heights it has nowadays.
“He and I had some incredible matches that comparatively few people saw right like when you’re talking about like the matches we had in 2006 through kind of 2009, the Internet wasn’t what it is today. Our generation has such a nostalgia for Wembley and especially UK wrestlers, especially Nigel, has talked about the SummerSlam in 1992 and as an American I never even thought I’d see Britain, so I’ve just marveled at this thing.”
It remains to be seen whether the match between the two actually takes place at AEW All In. Do you think they’ll be able to dish it out like it’s 2006 all over again? Sound off in the comments!
