Bryan Danielson recently spoke with Sports Illustrated for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During the discussion, the number one ranked contender to the AEW World Championship spoke about how he would have been interested in working the ROH Final Battle 2021 pay-per-view, as well as how Jonathan Gresham is someone he wants to wrestle.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where he touches on these topics with his thoughts.
On how he would’ve been interested in working the ROH Final Battle 2021 main event: “So it’s interesting. I’m not on my phone, ever. It’s hard to get me to pick up my phone at any given point of the day. So I didn’t realize until Saturday morning [the day of Final Battle] that Bandido couldn’t do the show. I was like, ‘That would have been perfect for me to come in and do that.’ It would have been a lot of fun. I’m not sure that would have even been OK with the state my knee was in on Friday [Bryan had tweaked his knee days prior on Dynamite], but I think that’s a match that a lot of wrestling fans would want to see.”
On how Jonathan Gresham is someone he wants to wrestle: “He’s one of the guys I want to wrestle. They say it’s the champions who make the championship, right? I think Jonathan Gresham is a great, great wrestler who would really make the championship. But without the platform, or if you don’t have the vehicle to show off how talented Jonathan Gresham is, it makes it very difficult. The title is in good hands with Jonathan Gresham, but the hard part is what happens with Ring of Honor. We’re all waiting to see what they end up doing.”
