Bryan Danielson Injured, Misses AEW Meet & Greet

The All Elite Wrestling injury epidemic continues with Bryan Danielson.

Bryan Danielson

Add Bryan Danielson to All Elite Wrestling's growing injury list.

News that the Blackpool Combat Club member was hurt broke on Sunday, when fans expecting to see Danielson at a scheduled New Bedford, MA meet and greet were told he wouldn't be there (via Fightful Select). One fan was informed that Bryan had been unable to fly to the event due to an injury. Fightful later confirmed this with the venue, though specifics on Danielson's situation were unclear at the time.

Following on from this, the Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Online's Bryan Alvarez has noted that Danielson won't be out of action for too long. The 41-year-old is only expected to be on the shelf for one-to-two weeks.


While Danielson's injury remains unknown, it isn't believed to be serious - hence the short timeframe.

Bryan last wrestled for AEW in the brutal Anarchy in the Arena match at Double or Nothing 2022 (29 May). He was involved in the finish, too, passing out in Chris Jericho's Walls of Jericho while Jake Hager choked him out with a dislodged ring rope.


AEW is yet to formally announce anything regarding Danielson's injury.
