AEW Star Believes Bryan Danielson Is “Scared” To Face Him

Bryan Danielson

Bryan Danielson may currently be sidelined, but that hasn’t stopped one AEW personality from feeling he’s running away from a fight.

During his main event bout with Kazuchika Okada at Forbidden Door 2, it was revealed that Bryan Danielson had suffered a broken arm part way through. Whilst he completed the match, he has been out of action since although there has recently been an update on when he may be able to return to action.

However, it doesn’t look like this will be in time for a match at All In inside Wembley Stadium. There had been talk old foe Nigel McGuinness would come out of retirement for one more match if that were the case.

In a discussion with AEW Unrestricted, McGuinness that the lure of a match inside such an iconic stadium would be the way to get him to lace up the boots once more.

“The truth of the matter is the only way I was ever going to come out of retirement was for a match against Bryan Danielson at Wembley Stadium. You know what I mean? It was going to take something like that to come out of retirement, because I really value my job doing announcing, and there are so many other guys on the card that are so much ahead of me, and deserve those spots, etc. But in the right situation, as I mentioned, with Dragon at Wembley Stadium, I’d be crazy to not be open to that possibility.”

“He’s Probably A Bit Scared”

Nigel McGuinness went on to note that he thinks Danielson may actually be a little scared at the idea of the contest.

Let’s be honest, we all saw the x-rays and…you know, one of those bones was perfectly okay. I don’t know how many bones are in the human body, like 206. He’s got all of them, apart from one. Does he really need time off? He’s sitting at home, taking a paycheck, digging those clams out of the sand when he could be in there wrestling with me. To be perfectly honest, he’s probably a bit scared, I think so.
