"I was planning on wrestling on Wednesday this week. I don't think that's going to happen because, in this specifically, we think I fractured my right forearm with about ten minutes left to go. Talking to our doctors, and I love the AEW medical staff and trainers, they think it's going to be six to eight weeks for this specific injury. The stuff after Revolution and the Iron Man match with Max, I had a torn labrum and then some compressed vertebrae. That's normal wrestler stuff. I'm fine. We just thought, for a precautionary measure," he said.

Danielson said he knew he was injured during the match, but wanted to push through and finish the bout. He was favoring his right arm in the later portions of the match. Danielson later noted that the injury occurred when Okada landed the top rope elbow. Danielson said he didn't have his elbow in a safe space.

Danielson tapped out Okada to secure the victory.
