In the high-stakes world of All Elite Wrestling, the AEW Continental Classic is rapidly becoming the talk of the wrestling community. This prestigious tournament, which commenced last week, is a path to glory for its competitors, culminating at the much-anticipated Worlds End pay-per-view on December 30.

The stakes? A chance to be crowned the inaugural Triple Crown champion, intertwining the Continental Championship, NJPW Strong Openweight Championship, and the ROH World Championship. As the tournament heats up, BetOnline has released its latest odds, placing Bryan Danielson as the frontrunner.

Danielson, a seasoned veteran, is currently favored at -135 to triumph in the Blue League and holds a promising +150 to win the entire tournament. In contrast, in the Gold League, Swerve Strickland is emerging as a strong contender, marked at +185.

These odds set the stage for a potential showdown between Danielson and Strickland in what could be a riveting final at Nassau Coliseum, Long Island.

Bryan Danielson's Daunting Comeback

Danielson's journey in the tournament is particularly noteworthy.

Despite a recent setback due to a broken orbital bone, he has yet to compete in a tournament match. This contrasts starkly with Strickland's impressive run, where he has already secured victories over formidable opponents Jay Lethal and Jay White.

Lethal, despite his prowess, stands at long odds of +10000, while White is viewed more favorably at +220. The excitement escalates this weekend on "AEW Collision," where Danielson is slated to make his tournament debut against Eddie Kingston.

Kingston, facing the dual challenge of Danielson and the odds, is considered a long shot with his odds at +500. The prize? Not just a win but a shot at two titles, elevating the stakes to dizzying heights. This tournament is not just a series of matches; it's a narrative of resilience, strategy, and the relentless pursuit of glory.

As the AEW Continental Classic advances, the wrestling world watches with bated breath, anticipating every twist and turn on the road to the Worlds End pay-per-view. Stay tuned as we bring continuous updates on this exhilarating journey.
