Bryan Danielson Speaks About Possible Opponents from NJPW

It was announced a while back that All Elite Wrestling and NJPW will organize the Forbidden Door PPV, which will see stars from both promotions compete against each other. Even though NJPW is not very popular in the US, they are considered one of the top promotions in the world.

NJPW has also produced a number of very popular wrestling stars over the past few years and many former WWE wrestlers have actually competed at NJPW. This includes wrestling stars such as Goldberg and Hulk Hogan. There are many dream matches that can be created for this PPV.

Not a single match for the highly anticipated PPV has been announced yet by either company. Many people believe that the build-up for the show will start this week on Dynamite. Many people are looking forward to seeing what Bryan Danielson will be doing during that PPV.

In Sports Illustrated, Bryan spoke about the matches that he would like to see.

CM Punk recently won the AEW World Title at Double or Nothing. Many people believe that CM Punk will be part of the Main Event of that PPV.

However, there is a chance that CM Punk faces Kazuchika Okada, Hiroshi Tanahashi, or Will Ospreay at the PPV. “I would love to wrestle Okada, but in the back of my mind, I’m thinking about Zack Sabre Jr. and wrestling him to see who is the best technical wrestler in the world,” Bryan Danielson said while being interviewed by Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso.

We have two very different styles of technical wrestling. We wrestled in 2008, and he was just a kid, but I was super impressed with him then. He’s grown into this amazing wrestler, and I don’t ever recall seeing anyone wrestle with his technique.

There are a ton of guys I’d like to wrestle with. You mentioned Okada and that’s a match I really want. I want [Tomohiro] Ishii. [Hiroshi] Tanahashi and I wrestled in 2004, but we are totally different people now than we were then.

That would be a lot of fun. Shingo and I wrestled in 2010, that would also be a lot of fun. I was hoping to get a match against Kenta in WWE, but it just never happened, and I would love to wrestle him. I’d also love to wrestle [Katsuyori] Shibata. I’m open to whoever Tony [Khan] and New Japan want me to go up against”.
