Top AEW Star Reveals When Contract Expires

A major name in AEW has shared when his contract is set to expire.

Bryan Danielson made his AEW debut three years ago after his WWE run ended. Danielson became All Elite just a few months after headlining WrestleMania 37 and spending over a decade as Daniel Bryan.

Since his AEW debut, Danielson has gone on to have many memorable matches with the likes of Kenny Omega, Kazuchika Okada, MJF, Eddie Kingston, and recently at AEW Dynasty with Will Ospreay is a match that many people believe was one of the greatest matches ever.

It hasn’t been a secret that Bryan Danielson is considering 2024 to be his final year as a full-time wrestler. After that, the former WWE World Champion still plans to wrestle on a part-time basis.

While speaking to The Wrestling Classic on Casual Conversations, Danielson was asked about what’s left on his pro wrestling checklist, which also led to Bryan revealing when his AEW deal expires.

“The big one is Wembley (that is left on my wrestling checklist). I wanna make it to Wembley. My contract actually expires before Wembley. But I wanna make it to Wembley… I’m not sure if I’ll make it, but one thing that would be a nice way to kind of close everything out for me is to do my last match as a full-time wrestler at WrestleDream at the Tacoma Dome — we’re doing the Tacoma Dome — because that’s the first wrestling show I ever saw.”

“It was WWF and it was Ultimate Warrior versus Rick Rude in the main event and it’s the first time my sister ever saw a male butt cheek. My dad talked about it till the day he died. The Ultimate Warrior sunset flips Rick Rude, Rick Rude’s back and butt are facing directly towards us and then Ultimate Warrior pulls down his pants, we see his butt-cheeks and my sister’s cheeks go bright red. My dad howled about that until the day he died.”

The All In show at Wembley Stadium is on August 25th and WrestleDream takes place on October 12th.

Tony Khan, who is AEW’s Owner, CEO & GM discussed Bryan’s future role in the company.

“Bryan and I made an agreement three years to the week before AEW All In 2024. The agreement was that Bryan would wrestle (full-time) for three years.

“Even three years in advance of the expiration of the agreement, I was already clawing for him to stay. He will stay with us in spirit and sometimes, occasionally, make sporadic appearances with us.

“But the end of the full-time run with us is going to be in 2024.”
