BRYAN DANIELSON: Bryan Danielson makes AEW debut at All Out

Posted on 9/06/121 by Colin Vassallo

Bryan Danielson, the former multi-time WWE champion, made
his AEW debut yesterday at the All Out pay-per-view.

Just before Kenny Omega bid everyone goodbye and goodnight,
Wilhelm Richard Wagners Flight of the Valkyries song hit
the speakers and the NOW Arena became unglued for the
arrival of Bryan Danielson.

A smiling Danielson emerged from the tunnels to thousands of
YES! chants from the crowd and quickly aligned himself
with Christian, Jungle Boy, and Luchasaurus. The four of
them, standing face-to-face with The Elite, then brawled
with Danielson hitting the YES! kicks on Nick Jackson as the
crowd chanted along. He then delivered a German suplex
before hitting the running knee on Jackson. All four faces
then celebrated in the ring as The Elite retreated.

The home of professional wrestling is All Elite Wrestling,
said Excalibur on commentary as fans chanted AEW and the
pay-per-view came to a close.

This was Danielsons first non-WWE appearance since 2010 and
AEWs third major signing following CM Punks and Adam
Coles arrivals. Danielson last appeared on WWE television
on the April 30 episode of Smackdown where he lost a
Universal title match against Roman Reigns which also had
the stipulation that if he loses, hed be gone from WWE.

His contract expired following that match and despite WWEs
attempts to get him to sign a new deal, Danielson opted for
greener pastures. It is believed that he wanted to wrestle
for New Japan, a major sticking point in his WWE deal, and
something that he could be able to under All Elite

Danielson was expected to debut at the September 22 episode
of Dynamite: Grand Slam in New York but it was moved up due
to uncertainty of coronavirus restrictions in the state.
