• Daniel Bryan Has A Message For WWE Fans Before His 1st Ever AEW Match Tonight
In the main event of tonight’s AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam, Bryan Danielson (fka Daniel Bryan in WWE) will face AEW World Champion Kenny Omega in a non-title match.
This will be Bryan’s 1st ever match in All Elite Wrestling.
Before tonight’s match, Bryan wrote the following message to WWE fans:
“Thank you to the WWE fans. You pushed my career to new heights — heights that I never would have reached for, on my own.
Thank you for cheering me enthusiastically into the main event at WrestleMania 30, and thank you for booing me vociferously against Kofi [Kingston] at WrestleMania 35.
Thank you for crying with me when I was forced to retire, and thank you for celebrating with me when I was cleared to compete.
Thank you for hijacking that show in Seattle — the last time my dad ever got to see me wrestle. He signed his first autograph that night: Buddy Danielson, Daniel Bryan’s dad.
Thank you for moments that I will never forget… moments where I can just close my eyes and feel the goosebumps all over again.
I hope you will continue to follow me in AEW, but I completely understand if you don’t. You’ve given me more than enough — more than I could ever repay. Thank you for all of it.”
Tonight’s the night. First match in @AEW. Largest crowd in AEW history. First wrestling show at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Biggest match of my career. Ready to kick @KennyOmegamanX’s head in. LET’S GOOOO! #AEWDynamite pic.twitter.com/2KpSwFtlma

• Old School Wrestling Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School MMA & Pro Wrestling Veteran ‘The Beast’ Bob Sapp turns 48 today.
Most fans of mixed-martial-arts remember Sapp as a former fighter, who fought all around the world for the past 2 decades, but not that many people actually knew that he was also a professional wrestler.
In 2000, he was signed to a developmental contract by Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling, but only appeared on TV once for an interview during an episode of WCW Thunder.
When the World Wrestling Federation bought WCW in March 2001, Bob went on to become a professional MMA fighter.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOB SAPP!
