Bryan Danielson (fka Daniel Bryan in WWE) was scheduled to face Zack Sabre Jr. at this Sunday’s AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door PPV.
However, this match won’t happen because Bryan isn’t cleared to compete. Bryan will announce his replacement at the PPV itself.
On this week’s Dynamite, Bryan said he has very high standards and the wrestler that he has chosen as his replacement will live up to his standards and the fans are going to be astounded by what he does in All Elite Wrestling.
