In the world of professional wrestling, injuries are an unfortunate reality. One such star who has been sidelined due to injury is Bryan Danielson, a massive star in All Elite Wrestling (AEW).
Danielson suffered a broken arm during his dream match with Kazuchika Okada at AEW X NJPW Forbidden Door in June.
The injury was severe enough to require surgery in early July, and there were concerns that it was worse than initially thought.
AEW President’s Update on Danielson’s Return
AEW President Tony Khan recently shared an update on Danielson’s recovery. Speaking with Mike Johnson at PWInsider, Khan addressed the absences of both Danielson and Jamie Hayter.
He expressed his excitement about Danielson’s return and noted that it would happen in a matter of months, before the end of 2023.
Khan said, “There is a little more clarity as to when Bryan Danielson will be back from his injury. I’m very excited to get Bryan back. I don’t want to put a timetable because it’s a challenging injury and a tough recovery, but I’m very confident Bryan will be back later this year.”
Impact of Danielson’s Absence on All Elite Wrestling
Danielson’s injury led to his absence from the Blackpool Combat Club vs Elite Blood & Guts match on July 19th, which The Elite ultimately won. His return will undoubtedly boost the morale of his team and fans alike.
The Elite have now all agreed to renew their contracts with AEW, solidifying their commitment to the promotion.
