Bryan Danielson hopes to tick off multiple dream matches before he retires.
The American Dragon has made it clear that his in-ring career is reaching its end and that his current contract with AEW will be his last one. Although there are multiple matches available to Danielson in North America, the desire to wrestle in Japan has been discussed on multiple occasions. Beck in 2021, Danielson revealed that the option to wrestle in Japan was one of the factors that ultimately helped him make the decision to leave WWE.
While appearing on the Nikki and Brie show, Bryan Danielson was asked if he would be making the trip overseas in his final run. Danielson did not rule out the idea of one more trip overseas:
“Maybe. I never say never,”
Danielson continued to talk about how much he enjoys competing in Japan and would do it more if not for his commitments with AEW:
“Wrestling in Japan is one of my favorite places in the world to wrestle, if not the favorite place. I loved wrestling in Japan, I’d love to wrestle there more, it’s just a matter of schedule and a matter of time.”
Danielson’s last match in Japan took place at a WWE house show in 2018, where Danielson and Samoa Joe challenged AJ Styles for the WWE Championship.
Bryan Danielson Looks Set For Technical Rematch
At WrestleDream, Danielson defeated Zack Sabre Jr. in a match of the year contender. However, with each man trying to prove that they were the best technician, The American Dragon won the match with a strike, much to the anger of Sabre Jr., who has demanded a rematch in the future.
