Bryan Danielson AEW

After appearing for NJPW during Wrestle Kingdom week, Bryan Danielson will return to the company next month for a huge singles match.

‘The American Dragon’ ended up losing to ‘The Rainmaker’ Kazuchika Okada at Wrestle Kingdom. Despite the animosity going in to the match, the pair shared a handshake afterward.

The following day at New Year’s Dash, Danielson was part of a six-man tag match alongside Okada, Jon Moxley and Tomohiro Ishii, going up against TMDK and a team which included Zack Sabre Jr.

It has now been confirmed that at New Beginning in Osaka on February 11th, Bryan Danielson and Zack Sabre Jr. will face off in a singles match, which is a rematch from their contest at AEW WrestleDream which Danielson won.
