A recent report has revealed that Bryan Danielson’s injury happened earlier than fans thought. According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Danielson was actually hurt on the October 21st episode of Collision during his match with Andrade El Idolo.
Seemingly, the injury occurred when Danielson and El Idolo butted heads during that bout. Meltzer noted that it wasn’t even a case of Danielson getting hit too hard, with the star’s head being in the wrong place at the wrong time while El Idolo went for a spinning elbow.
