AEW Star Bryan Danielson made his debut with the promotion towards the end of this past September 5’s All Out PPV Event, when he made his way down to the ring and saved Christian and the Jurassic Express from a nasty beatdown at the hands of The Elite/ SuperKliq. Danielson then made his Dynamite debut on the Wednesday, September 8th episode of the show, when he had an in-ring segment with the current AEW World Champion Kenny Omega. Bryan Danielson then made his AEW in-ring debut on the September 22 Grand Slam episode of AEW Dynamite on TNT, when he went up against AEW World Champion Kenny Omega in a one-on-one match that ended in a 30-minute time-limit draw.
It was noted on a previous edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that Bryan Danielson’s AEW deal has him locked in for three years, which means that Danielson is under contract to AEW until the summer of 2024, when he becomes 43 years of age. It was also indicated that WWE was open to Danielson returning to the company if he was interested once his deal with AEW was up. Danielson also indicated during an interview with The New York Post this past September that his deal with All Elite Wrestling is indeed for three years.
The AEW Star recently spoke with Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour and provided an update on how long his current deal with AEW is as well as what his deal with AEW allows him to do. Danielson confirmed that his AEW contract is for three years and that his contract with AEW allows him to compete against NJPW Stars, but that if he re-signed with the WWE, he would be allowed to wrestle NJPW Stars as well.
Danielson then talked about how his deal with AEW could be the final pro wrestling contract he signs, but that he doesn’t know for sure as he feels invincible right now and physically as good as ever. He also noted that when he signed his AEW contract, he and his wife, WWE Hall of Famer Brie Bella, would even be under the impression that this will be his last pro wrestling contract ever.
Bryan Danielson is set to face Miro in the finals of the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament at the Full Gear PPV Event this coming Saturday, where the winner will earn a shot at the winner of the Full Gear main event between AEW World Champion Kenny Omega and Hangman Page for Omega’s AEW World Title.
