Bryan Danielson Talks About If He Considered Signing Anywhere Other Than WWE Or AEW

Did Bryan Danielson consider going anywhere besides WWE or AEW?

During a recent interview on WFAN Sports Radio, the AEW star spoke about his decision to sign with a new wrestling company when his latest WWE contract expired.

Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where he touches on this topic.

“A lot of people think in terms of two options – but I could’ve done an independent schedule, or not come back to wrestling at all for a bit. But, I wanted to take the summer off because my daughter started preschool. Her whole life, I’ve left almost every week, but me being home every night, she loved it and I loved it. Now, when I FaceTime her, she’s like, ‘Daddy, I miss your cuddles, mama doesn’t cuddle me like you do!’ and that kind of stuff. That was part of the idea of maybe stepping away until my son starts preschool, but then you wonder if I’m missing years of my productive career, and I might not be the same at 45 as I am at 40.”
