Bryan Danielson Discusses Working In Creative Role For AEW

Bryan Danielson AEW Forbidden Door

Bryan Danielson is known for being an amazing pro wrestler who is also doing some great work for AEW behind the scenes as well.

There was a recent comment from Tony Khan where he said that if anything ever happens to him that prevents him from running AEW, he would tell his father to put Bryan Danielson in charge.

Earlier this year, it was revealed that Danielson has been working in a creative role for AEW. Considering his history as a wrestler with 20+ years of experience and being a main event performer in WWE before his AEW run, Bryan knows what it takes to make it in the pro wrestling business.

At the AEW All Out post-show press conference, Bryan Danielson spoke about how tough it is helping AEW creatively and in the ring while also balancing family life. Bryan is a father to a girl and boy while he has been married to WWE Hall of Famer Brie Bella for the past nine years.

“It’s hard, because I love [the creative] aspect of it so much, but I also love being with my family, and going to shows takes you away from your family.”

Bryan shared some of the things that his six-year-old daughter Birdie says to him.

“She says to me things like this: ‘Daddy, you’re gonna be done wrestling when I turn 7, right? You’re gonna be home every day when I turn 7.”

Bryan Daniels Admits He Has To Think About What He Wants To Do Moving Forward

As he continued, Danielson admitted that he has to think about possibly doing more work for AEW in a creative role.

“All of that to say, I’ve got a lot of thinking to do. That’s not a no, it’s a, ‘How do I make this work while still keeping the meaningful things in my life — the things that I find important — putting them as a top priority?'”

It was also mentioned by AEW CEO & GM Tony Khan that appearing on Collision may be more favorable for Bryan in terms of a schedule, so perhaps now that Bryan is back in action, he might be more of a Collision guy. Bryan Danielson would go on to talk about being a part of the Blackpool Combat Club and how they are a group that will always step up.

“One of the ethics I believe in is you step up when you need to step up. Us as the BCC, who are a collective, who are real friends — we take stepping up seriously, whether that is in story or in real life. And I think nobody is a better example of that than Jon Moxley, who has stepped up every time that we need him to. … I just see it as kind of a way of life for us.”

At AEW All Out on Sunday, Bryan Danielson returned to in-ring action after missing over two months with a broken arm. Danielson defeated Ricky Starks in a very entertaining and bloody Strap Match. It was considered by many fans to be one of the best matches on the show, which is certainly not a new thing for Bryan Danielson.
