Bryan Danielson revealed the possibility of rekindling a feud with Kenny Omega once the latter returns from a hiatus.
The former WWE Superstar has outsmarted everyone since making his AEW debut a few months ago. However, he faced a formidable challenge in his in-ring debut match against Kenny Omega on the Grand Slam episode of AEW Dynamite.
Both men pushed each other to their limits in an incredibly breath-taking contest. However, no clear winner emerged as both failed to secure a pin in under 30 minutes, thus making it a time-limit-draw. The finish to their first-time-ever clash left a sour taste in everybody’s mouths. Weeks later, Bryan became the #1 contender, but The Cleaner lost his AEW World Championship on the same night, thus missing out on an opportunity for a rematch.
While speaking with Casual Conversations, The American Dragon stated that he was disappointed over witnessing Omega lose his world title. However, he’s thrilled to see Hangman Page holding the coveted prize.
Bryan believes he and Omega will have another opportunity to renew their rivalry down the road:
“Now, am I a little disappointed? Yeah. Part of that is kind of story a little bit. Like I mentioned it last week on Dynamite, I was disappointed that it wasn’t Kenny Omega standing across from me. Realistically, I’m thrilled that it’s Hangman, and I also feel like, at some point, Kenny and I are gonna get a chance to do it again. He’s taking some time off right now, but I think hopefully we’re gonna get a chance to do it again.”
Danielson further recalled forcefully retiring from wrestling, which made him learn not to take any match for granted:
“That said, I was forced to retire before, and you never want to take those things for granted. You know what I mean. Yeah, that like, hey, I’ll be able to do this match again, or I’ll be able to wrestle this guy again. You just don’t want to take that for granted.”
