Bryan Danielson – “It’s Time For Me To Go Home”

MJF & Bryan Danielson

At AEW Revolution Bryan Danielson and MJF went to war for the right to be called AEW World Champion.

While their Ironman Match was always going to push both men to their limit, no one was prepared for what unfolded. For over an hour, the two combatants pulled out every move in their arsenal and then some. Blood was shed, tables and bodies broken, but in the end, it was MJF who claimed victory after forcing Danielson to submit in the LeBelle Lock.

While MJF continues to bask in the glory of his victory, Danielson was left to pick up the pieces after falling short in his pursuit of the World Title yet again. The American Dragon has been open about the fact that his time left in the ring is limited, but he might already be thinking of walking away.

Speaking in a promo on Dynamite that was filmed immediately after his loss to MJF, the star said that it was time for him to go home.

“I always thought I was doing this for my family. You know, I was forced to retire and I wanted to teach them if you love something you gotta fight for it. What I realised out there tonight, Max was right. You know this whole time, my whole career, I’ve been legs, lungs, heart, and never giving up. That’s always what I thought was best, always to fight, to just fight and fight and fight and fight.

When I woke up from being unconscious and I’m in the LeBell Lock, my first instinct was to f*cking fight. Then as I was fighting I realised I can’t feel my arms and my left leg didn’t have any strength anymore and when Max said after the Iron Man match I wouldn’t be able to play with my kids, it dawned on me – he’s right. I was putting myself before my family.

More than tapping out, that made me more ashamed than anything else. It’s time for me to go home.”

Bryan Danielson Set To Miss Out On G1 Climax

Since joining AEW, Bryan Danielson has been open about his desire to compete in the G1 Climax tournament hosted by New Japan Pro-Wrestling. However, it seems that his involvement is far from certain. In a recent interview, the star admitted that he’s unsure whether AEW boss Tony Khan would allow him to miss enough television time in order to compete.
