On the November 30th episode of AEW Dynamite, FTR’s Dax Harwood went one on one with Blackpool Combat Club’s Bryan Danielson in an AEW World Championship Eliminator Tournament match. After a hard-fought battle, Bryan Danielson emerged victorious.
Ahead of the AEW Dynamite bout, Dax Harwood spoke to Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp about being excited to face someone he considers in the running as best wrestler of all time.
“Obviously, I’m very excited for the match. He may be the best wrestler of all time. If we’re talking about work, he may be the best of all time. I’m super excited for the match. They said, ‘you’re wrestling Bryan Danielson and we need you to cut this promo.’ I was like, ‘What can I say to make these people care about the match?’ Obviously, people are going to love to see the match.
“I’m not one of these people who think every single match has to have some story. I see that complained about all the time. Do you think when the Cleveland Cavaliers play the Atlanta Hawks, is there a storyline there or are they just playing to win? It’s two guys or four guys or six guys going in there to win. Not every match has to have a story, but I did want the people to be interested in this match, so I had to think of a reason real quick, and that’s how I came about it.”
“Everyone is like, ‘Bryan, why are we talking about this?'” – Dax Harwood on Bryan Danielson’s locker room discussions
During the same interview, Dax Harwood was asked about Bryan Danielson’s habit of discussing genitalia, whether he’s calling fruit “tree semen” or discussing flaccid penises in the locker room. The latter phrase recently made headlines, and while Harwood hadn’t seen that particular bit of news, he did confirm that Danielson has a favorite AEW locker room subject.
“I have not seen that headline, but I will tell you this, that story along with many other stories, he talks about nonstop,” confirmed Dax. “All he does is talk about penis sizes in the locker room. Everyone is like, ‘Bryan, why are we talking about this?'”
