Bryan Danielson explained why he’s saying a firm no to Halloween.
AEW star Bryan Danielson’s passion for professional wrestling can only be rivaled by his passion for the environment. In fact, during his final WWE Championship run as Daniel Bryan, he adopted the gimmick of the “Planet’s Champion,” replacing the leather WWE Championship belt with one made out of wood and natural stones.
Speaking to his wife Brie Garcia on the latest episode of the Nikki & Brie Show, Danielson addressed the environmental impact of Halloween, saying that he’s taking a stand against the holiday as he believes costumes to be wasteful.
“I think Halloween does a number on the environment. So yeah, I think we should take a stand against Halloween right now and say ‘no more Halloween costumes.’ It’s a very logical argument. It’s not like Thanksgiving where we’re celebrating family. It’s not like Christmas where depending on your tradition or whatever it is, could be a religious holiday or another family celebration. Halloween is really none of those things, so why are we celebrating and why are we getting dressed up.”
