There are lots of young stars in AEW that Bryan Danielson would love to work with.
Danielson made his AEW debut at All Out 2021 and recently won the Title Eliminator Tournament, becoming the Number One Contender to Adam 'Hangman' Page's World Title. Thrilled to be facing someone he calls a homegrown AEW talent, Bryan has plenty of other young stars he'd like to wrestle.
Appearing on Casual Conversations with The Classic, Danielson spoke about names such as Daby Allin, MJF, and Bear Country, with whom he'd like to have a program with solely based on his love of bears.
"As far as from the young guy perspective, I really like Daniel Garcia's style. I think Dante Martin is incredible. So there's those guys. There's Darby Allin, who I think is just fantastic. I worry about him physically about all the stuff he puts his body through. They're all kind of different. Dante, who's doing this incredible high-flying. Darby, he does stuff that seems a little reckless but I find him to be very psychologically sound and also this great character. Daniel Garcia is an excellent technical wrestler. You got MJF, who is evolving what you would have called the standard heel act. But he's evolving in a way that's modern, and it doesn't feel like he's just out there being a heel, it feels like he's an asshole. I talk to him and he's kind of an asshole. He's made the claim, and it's so funny, that it's impossible, there's not anybody in this world who can double leg him. He is susceptible to a single leg takedown, but nobody can double leg him because he's the "Sprawl God." He's never been double-legged his entire amateur wrestling career. I was like 'Oh, you must have had a pretty good amateur run?' He like, 'Ah, my last year was my freshman year of high school.' I was like, 'What?' Making that kind of bold claim, it's a lot of fun. I was like, 'Okay.' He is kind of this just turned up to eleven. I also think Sammy Guevara, he's so good. There's all these different guys that I -- The one too because I love bear stuff is the Bear Country guys. I would love to do just a program about either where we team together or wrestle them just based on our love of bears. It would be a lot of fun."
Danielson is currently running through every member of Dark Order before he finally challenges Hangman for the Championship. Next up for him is a match against Alan "5" Angels on the December 1 episode of Dynamite.
MJF, on the other hand, is in the midst of a feud with CM Punk. The two spent the first 20-minutes of last Wednesday's show having a heated exchange. Learn more here.
