Bryan Danielson AEW Injury: Wrestling Observer Radio Sheds Light

Dave Meltzer recently provided some insights on Wrestling Observer Radio. According to him, Bryan Danielson had already walked into the AEW Dynamite event with the injury.

AEW management, aware of his condition, orchestrated the match in such a way as to make it seem as if he got injured during the bout.

Meltzer mentioned, “Danielson went in with a black eye. They didn’t know how serious he was, because obviously, he worked on it. They shot the angle to take him out during the match.”

The actual cause of the injury? A seemingly innocuous clash of heads. “It was basically a fluke. It wasn’t one of those things where he got hit too hard or anything. Andrade was doing a spinning elbow, and Danielson’s head was in one place and they bonked heads,” Meltzer explained.

Surgery Speculations

Post the Andrade match, there were murmurs that Danielson might require surgery. However, Bryan Alvarez, another wrestling expert, hinted that surgery might not be on the cards for Danielson.

It is now believed however that he HAS undergone surgery on his orbital bone.
