Bryan Danielson Speaks About Feeling a Target On His Back
Bryan spoke about sensing a target on his back. “I don’t worry about it,” Danielson said. “It was really interesting to me, like one of the reasons why I’m here is not to see how good I am.
I know I’m good. I think everybody knows I’m pretty good. And I’m not cocky about it, I’ve just been around the world and have been in the ring with the best guys and all that kind of stuff. I want to see how good these guys are because you can only see so much by watching it.
“I’ve watched Kenny Omega. The last time I wrestled him had to be 2007, 2008 or something. Man, he looks like he’s gotten good. Is he? Is he as good as he looks? When I see Jungle Boy, when I see Darby Allin, and when I see all these people, I think, like, ‘they’re good.
I wonder how good they are.’ That sort of thing excites me. I’m excited by the idea of new and the idea of fresh, and I’m excited by the things that they’ve built here”. Even though Bryan can compete in Mexico and Japan, Bryan stated he primarily wants to focus on his AEW career during the pandemic.
“We all know we’re in a weird situation within the world,” Danielson said. “I would love, love, love, love, love to go wrestle in New Japan, would love that. But with COVID being what it is right now, I can’t quarantine for two weeks to go do a couple shows in Japan.
I just can’t do it. I would love to go wrestle in Mexico, but I don’t know if that’s the safest thing in the world for me right now. For right now, I’m going to focus on AEW and then go from there”.
He made it clear that he is not interested in the business aspect of AEW as that is Tony Khan’s area. He did mention that he loves making money and produce high quality wrestling matches. “Honestly? Tony’s the businessman,” Danielson said.
“I could care less about the business, as far as the business end. I want to make money so that he keeps doing this thing that is so fun for me to do. I just feel so blessed to be able to step into this position where you have a crowd that just loves this product. You saw it tonight, every match, they’re just the best”.
