Bryan Danielson has undoubtably been one of AEW’s standout performers since joining the company in September of last year.
Danielson is set to feature on tomorrow night’s Double or Nothing PPV, teaming with his Blackpool Combat Club stablemate Jon Moxley alongside Proud & Powerful and Eddie Kingston to take on the Jericho Appreciation Society.
Speaking to Sports Illustrated, Danielson revealed his excitement for the upcoming bout, praising the likes of Daniel Garcia, Santana, and Ortiz, whilst throwing a tounge-in-cheek dig at Eddie Kingston.
“I like the variety of the people I’m teaming with, but I also like the variety of people on the other side, too. It’s a great mix of experienced guys with younger guys. You’ve got a guy like Daniel Garcia, who is fantastic. You have Proud & Powerful, who are such an amazing tag team. And you have Eddie Kingston, who is a piece of garbage—but he’s good at what he does. It’s a lot of fun.”-Bryan Danielson
Danielson also touched upon being a member of the Blackpool Combat Club alongside Jon Moxley, Wheeler Yuta, and William Regal. The group have been a dominant force across AEW’s various shows since their formation in March earlier this year.
Danielson revealed that being a member of the group has been an enjoyable experience, with his shared histories with Moxley and Regal allowing for the group to gel as well as it has.
“We have such an appreciation of what we’re doing. Jon is somebody who doesn’t need to do this financially. But he’s working AEW and New Japan and indie shows because he loves it. We have so much history together, too, and there is something about getting to do something you love with somebody else who loves the same thing. It’s also a real joy to be around William Regal. He’s been a huge influence in my life, and now he is back in my life. We drive to the shows together every week. Getting to know Wheeler, that’s been great, too. These past couple months have just been a joy.”-Bryan Danielson
Double or Nothing 2022 is set to take place tomorrow night at the T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. Danielson’s 5-on-5 outing is sure to have stiff competition for match of the night, with a stacked card including the likes of CM Punk vs Adam Page, and both Owen Hart Foundation Tournament finals.
