In the world of professional wrestling, Bryan Danielson, famously known as the American Dragon, is embarking on a significant transition. As he winds down his career as a full-time pro wrestler, Danielson has made it clear that he intends to make his last year in All Elite Wrestling (AEW) memorable and impactful.
Danielson recently graced the ring at WrestleDream in his home state of Washington, where he squared off against the highly skilled Zack Sabre Jr. The bout, as anticipated, was a technical masterpiece, with Danielson clinching the victory using his devastating Busaiku Knee maneuver.
During an appearance on the Getting Over podcast, Bryan Danielson shed light on his aspirations for this pivotal phase of his wrestling journey. He emphasized that he doesn't merely want to tick off a list of opponents but instead seeks to create meaningful moments in his final year as a full-time wrestler.
Danielson's Dream Matches
"I have people I'd like to get in the ring with. Most of them are AEW talents, as they are the most accessible. For instance, I'd love to have a match with Darby Allin in Seattle. Imagine how special that would be.
Even someone like Nick Wayne—Swerve and I have never faced off. And I'm not limiting this to Washington State wrestlers; I want another match with Kenny Omega," Danielson revealed. "What I truly desire from this year is to remain fully present and savor every moment of my last year as a full-time wrestler." Intriguingly, when asked about the prospect of his wife, Brie Garcia (formerly Brie Bella), a WWE Hall of Famer, joining him in AEW, Danielson maintained an open stance.
He noted that when it comes to family decisions, Brie holds the reins, and if she expresses interest in making the move to AEW, he believes it could very well become a reality. As Bryan Danielson enters this pivotal chapter in his wrestling career, fans and enthusiasts can expect to witness a series of memorable matches and moments, as he aims to make his last full-time year in AEW an unforgettable one.
