Bryan Danielson continues to make the media rounds to promote his match against AEW Champion Kenny Omega at the AEW Grand Slam: Dynamite special on TNT tonight from Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, New York.
Ahead of his big in-ring debut for All Elite Wrestling, Danielson appeared as a guest on the “‘Rasslin With Brandon Walker” show for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During his appearance on the popular program, Danielson explained why WrestleMania 30 was not the highlight of his pro wrestling career.
Featured below is an excerpt from the show where he touches on this topic with his thoughts.
“To me, this is the biggest match in my career. I think a lot of people would consider WrestleMania 30 my biggest moment, where I main evented WrestleMania, but the reality is if I went out there and I did not perform very well in that day, maybe the moment wouldn’t be remembered, but the ratings weren’t gonna change the next day. It wasn’t going to change WWE’s business.
“If Kenny Omega and I go out there and we put on a match that people are raving about and not only just us but everybody on that show. It’s the responsibility of every single person on that show because that show is stacked. There are going to be a lot of people tuning in for the first time because it feels so big. There’s this responsibility to really go out there and deliver and show people, hey, they should be watching this on a weekly basis. That makes it feel bigger. The implications of doing well vs. doing poorly are much greater.”
