• Bryan Danielson Is Mentoring An AEW Champion
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, AEW President Tony Khan talked about Bryan Danielson (former WWE Champion Daniel Bryan) being a valuable asset to his company.
Below are the highlights:
On Bryan wanting to team up with Jon Moxley on AEW programming:
“I was very impressed and thrilled with the excitement and the buzz of Danielson and Moxley in the ring together. We’ve been building to that moment, and people are very interested in what Danielson had to say and Moxley’s reaction to it. When our fans respond, I’m always listening.”
On Bryan mentoring TBS Champion Jade Cargill:
“Off-screen, Bryan is such a valuable resource. I recently asked him and Jade Cargill, who is already starting an amazing run as our TBS champion, to work together.
I think Bryan is the world’s greatest pro wrestler, and he has such valuable insight.
Jade is incredibly driven, and Bryan’s been a great mentor to her so far.”
