Bryan Danielson Says He Would Love It If Tony Khan Lets Him And MJF Go On First At AEW Revolution

Top All Elite Wrestling Star Bryan Danielson spoke with Sports Illustrated on a number of topics such as how he would love it if AEW President Tony Khan lets him and AEW World Champion MJF go on first in their 60-Minute Iron Man Match at AEW Revolution.

Bryan Danielson said:

“I would love to convince Tony [Khan] to let us go first, mostly because I go to bed really early. On Sunday, my wife couldn’t believe this; I went to bed at 8:03. There is a chance I will be going to the ring at that time this Sunday. We’ll be in San Francisco, and the idea of wrestling at five is much more suited to my personality.”

Bryan Danielson also spoke about the WrestleMania 12 Iron Man Matchup between WWE Hall of Famers Bret “The Hitman” Hart and Shawn Michaels and how the biggest challenge in his entire career both mentally and physically is following a lot of great matches as well as having a wrestling match after a bloody match.

Bryan Danielson said:

“That was billed as these two great wrestlers wrestling for an hour, and it meant a big deal to me when I watched it. It was a slower match upfront, and I just don’t think you could do that today at the end of an AEW pay-per-view. The undercard on WrestleMania 12 wasn’t nearly as exciting as the undercard of Revolution is going to be. We’re going to be following a lot of great stuff, including the Mox-‘Hangman’ Texas Deathmatch. The promoters from yesteryear would say that you don’t follow blood with wrestling, but that’s exactly what we’re doing. So it presents those types of challenges. To me, that’s exciting. This is maybe the biggest challenge I’ve put in front of myself in my entire career. I can’t think of anything else with more pressure mentally or physically.”

Bryan Danielson then spoke about how the biggest concern is having to hold the live crowd’s attention for 60 straight minutes.

Bryan Danielson said:

“The biggest concern is holding the live crowd’s attention. It is very important to have statement moments scattered regularly throughout the match. Having just read two books by Cormac McCarthy, he’s a great study in minimalism when it comes to fiction. He has these incredible sentences that hit you right in the heart. We need those sprinkled throughout the match, and plot twists. Overall, it needs to be a compelling narrative where the live crowd feels it. I know, 100%, the matches before us are going to be outstanding. We’re going an hour, and we can’t have a stinker. This is the last match of the night.”
