Bryan Danielson’s Unfortunate Injury in AEW

Earlier this year, the wrestling community was shocked to learn of Danielson’s arm injury.

Brie Bella, his wife, shed light on the severity of the injury, disclosing that Danielson had suffered a complete break in his arm during an AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door event.

The injury turned out to be more grievous than initially perceived.

The Road to Recovery

Danielson’s resilience is commendable. He has already made a comeback, delivering solid performances in the ring. However, the shadow of his injury looms large.

In a candid conversation with Sports Nightly, Danielson provided insights into his current physical state. He highlighted the metal rod in his arm, which, while providing support, also poses a risk. The rod’s end could be a potential weak point, making the arm susceptible to another break.

Furthermore, Danielson expressed that the continuous strain of wrestling might be hindering the complete healing of his arm.

He remarked, “It’s doing okay. I think by continually wrestling on it, I’m slowing it down from healing 100%. We older wrestlers like to say, we never anticipated being 100% ever again. So I think that’s kind of where I’m at. It’s fully functional. I can do pull-ups and I can do all these different sorts of things.”

The Risks Involved

The insertion of the rod, fortified with nine screws, ensures that the bone remains intact. However, the real concern, as pointed out by doctors, is the potential nerve and muscle damage.

The rod acts as a fulcrum, making the arm vulnerable at the point where the rod concludes. This vulnerability is compounded by the fact that Danielson wrestled for a good ten minutes with a broken arm, further aggravating the injury.
