Ever since the rumors of Daniel Bryan joining All Elite Wrestling started spreading, the world of wrestling has been in turmoil. According to an exclusive report by Cassidy Haynes from “BodySlam.net”, Daniel Bryan is said to have already signed a contract with All Elite Wrestling! Reportedly, a source in “AEW Circles” confirmed to Haynes the signing had already been made and the contract between Bryan and AEW was sealed.
One of the main reasons for the signature must be the terms that Tony Khan offered to ex Brian Danielson. Danielson must work on fewer appointments with the same or similar conditions as a full-time wrestler and at the same time have a creative say in booking his character. Another condition that should have been important for Danielson was the opportunity to compete in Japan. Thus, matches at New Japan Pro Wrestling should no longer be a pipe dream, but may soon become a reality, especially since AEW and NJPW have already approached Danielson independently and Jon Moxley. have worked together at the beginning of the year during the feud between And Kenta.
According to the report, there are already plans for the debut, but the work is not fully done yet. In an update, “BodySlam.net” reports that Daniel Bryan will definitely make his debut at the big “Grand Slam” show on September 22 in New York City. The Arthur Ashe Stadium event is planned as a special edition by AEW Dynamite and is expected to be the largest non-WWE event in the US since the turn of the millennium in terms of local viewership. At this point, however, it should be noted that there has yet to be any other report or official confirmation and that other journalists such as Sean Ross Sapp are currently working on verification of the report. In the realm of journalism, however, Haynes is well regarded, especially when it comes to all elite wrestling disciplines.
A few days ago PWInsider reported that World Wrestling Entertainment and its partners no longer had any future merchandise and character plans for Bryan, fueling rumors about an eventual departure. Until a few days and weeks ago, wrestling fans were divided over what Daniel Bryan’s future would really be like.
