Tony Khan Hopes Bryan Danielson Stays With AEW In Some Capacity Forever

Tony Khan comments on the future of Bryan Danielson.

Bryan Danielson has stated many times that 2024 will be his last full-time year in wrestling, but he will continue to wrestle in some capacity in the future. Danielson's contract with AEW expires before AEW All In, according to a recent interview with Casual Conversations.

Speaking to Shakiel Mahjouri of CBS Sports, Khan commented on Danielson's future.

"I would like Bryan to stay, in a perfect world, forever here in whatever capacity he'd stay with us in," Khan said. "I'd hope that Bryan would finish his wrestling career here. I would do anything to make that happen. I want Bryan to stay with us wrestling as long as possible. I know that he's talked about an exit from full-time wrestling, which is what he's been doing this year whenever he's been healthy.

"The only thing better than that is to have Bryan Danielson stepping up for the company, AEW, and fighting on our behalf. He's said a lot of great things about why he wants to be in this match and about why he wanted to come to AEW. I appreciate some of the complimentary things he's said about me personally, but especially I appreciate the things he's said about AEW and what we do here and why he loves AEW. I think Bryan Danielson fits on AEW like a glove. As long as he will consider wrestling with us, that door is always open. I would bend over backwards for him and do anything for Bryan Danielson."

Asked if he believes he will come to terms with Danielson on a new deal, Khan said, "I definitely think so. I hope so. I don't know whether he'll be wrestling full-time after that but I really hope Bryan will stay with me here in the office forever… I talk to Bryan pretty much every day whenever I can. So I hope that will continue for the rest of our lives."

Danielson is set to team with Darby Allin & FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler) against The Elite (The Young Bucks, Jack Perry, & Kazuchika Okada) in Anarchy in the Arena at AEW Double or Nothing.
