Bryan Danielson finally made his long-awaited All Elite Wrestling debut at All Out, and he did it by saving Jurassic Express from an Adam Cole-led Elite beatdown!
The former WWE Champion and NXT Champion had both been rumoured to be signing for the organisation following their exits from his former employers earlier this year, and All Out delivered both an exhilarating finale following Kenny Omega's AEW Championship victory over Christian.
Cole appeared first, swerve turning on Jungle Boy to rejoin his former Bullet Club colleagues in the Super Elite. Their assault on the heroes was parked by Bryan, who entered next to send the villains fleeing as the show went off the air.
Bryan was last seen losing a SmackDown main event to Roman Reigns that stipulated that he had to leave the show if he couldn't dethrone the Universal Champion. 'The Head Of The Table' submitted him to conclude one of the best television matches of the year and, evidently, his WWE run.
Cole was defeated at NXT TakeOver: 36 just two weeks ago. He'd signed a brief extension to his contract to put over former Undisputed Era partner Kyle O'Reilly before also electing to take his business elsewhere.
Expect more updates on both these blockbuster moves in the days to come.
