Bryan Danielson, a prominent figure in All Elite Wrestling (AEW), recently took to social media to impart a life lesson he learned from his late father. The AEW star, known for his illustrious career both in WWE and AEW, shared a personal adage that has seemingly guided him throughout his professional journey: “The right thing is often the hardest thing to do.”
In a heartfelt post, Danielson expressed, “My dad always told me, ‘The right thing is often the hardest thing to do. It won’t always make the most money. It won’t always be the most popular. But it’s still the right thing.'” This reflection comes at a time when Danielson has stepped away from in-ring action since teaming up with Claudio Castagnoli to claim victory over Orange Cassidy and New Japan Pro Wrestling’s (NJPW) Kazuchika Okada on the October 25 episode of Dynamite.
However, the hiatus is coming to an end as Danielson is set to make a significant comeback, preparing to throw down in the AEW Continental Classic round-robin tournament. On the horizon is a pivotal match against Eddie Kingston on the December 2 edition of Collision, which is part of the Blue League block. Kingston, no stranger to competition, recently experienced a setback when he succumbed to Brody King on the November 25 show.
This upcoming bout serves as more than just a comeback for Danielson; it’s a step toward potential triple-crown glory—as the winner of the AEW Continental Classic will be crowned with not one but three esteemed titles: the ROH World, NJPW STRONG Openweight, and AEW Continental championships.
In the lead-up to this pivotal face-off, Danielson isn’t straying far from the squared circle. He’s scheduled to grace the commentary table for this Wednesday’s edition of Dynamite, providing insights and sharing the wealth of his wrestling expertise.
Bryan Danielson’s recent message resonates beyond wrestling as a reminder of the virtues of integrity and perseverance. As fans eagerly await his return to action, they can also take solace knowing that he wrestles not just for the glory but to honor the principles that have shaped him into the passionate and dedicated athlete they admire.
Stay tuned for Danielson’s performance in the tournament, which could mark a defining moment in his already storied career. His principles, commitment, and skills inside the ring are sure to make the AEW Continental Classic an event to remember.
