Bryan Danielson is truly a man who loves professional wrestling and knows no limits when it comes to giving his all for the business. He also signaled that the end of his active in-ring career is coming in off-air footage from Collision this week.
Ringside News provided comprehensive play-by-play coverage of AEW Collision this week for the December 16th episode. The show ended with Bryan Danielson defeating Brody King in a gruesome match.
It has been established for a while now that Bryan Danielson will be ending his active in-ring career in less than a year, as his body simply can’t take all the wear and tear he has been receiving over the years.
While speaking in off-air footage after AEW Collision this week, The American Dragon made it clear that he could feel that the end of his in-ring career was coming but it wasn’t over just yet.
“The answer is also a question. ‘What are you going to do with this one wild and precious life?’ For me, I’m going to fight. That’s what brings me joy. That’s what makes me feel alive and I’ve got it for less than a year now. I can feel the end coming, but the end’s not yet. I’m still in the game. I still have a chance to make it to the semifinals of the Continental Classic. Do you know how long I’ve wanted to be in a tournament like this? With these men, somebody like Brody King, just going after me knowing I’m hurt and going after me with everything that he’s got. Do you know how much I love that? It might hurt but I love this.”
Bryan Danielson also started performing his signature ‘Yes!’ chants and broke the rule. It remains to be seen whether Bryan Danielson will make his way to the finals of the Continental Classic Tournament.
