At All Out 2021, All Elite Wrestling’s Bryan Danielson, better known as Daniel Bryan in the WWE, will make his All Elite Wrestling debut. This year’s All Out pay-per-view marked Bryan Danielson’s All Elite Wrestling (AEW) debut. Adam Cole returned to The Elite after Kenny Omega’s title defence against Christian Cage and Bryan’s debut in AEW. Cage and the Jurassic Express were Bryan’s allies against the Elite (Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus).
Danielson, who had been a regular of WWE television since 2010, defeated Universal Champion Roman Reigns in a “championship versus career” match on the April 30 episode of SmackDown earlier this year. Numerous articles were published a few days later stating that Danielson’s WWE contract expired and that the company had pressed him into signing another one.
When Bodyslam.net first broke the news in July that Danielson had agreed to join AEW, it was speculated that he’d make his AEW Dynamite debut on September 22 in New York City’s Arthur Ashe Stadium. Instead, Dan Danielson will make his All Out debut, according to Bodyslam.net.
After starting his career in 1999 with Ring of Honor, the American Dragon has battled for several promotions (ROH). As part of the first season of NXT, Danielson made his WWE debut in 2010 as Daniel Bryan, after briefly working for the organisation back in the early 2000s and signing a new contract in 2009. As a member of the Nexus faction, he then made his Raw debut.
As a result of his on-screen brutality, Danielson was dismissed by WWE when the Nexus debuted. At the SummerSlam PPV later in 2010, though, the WWE welcomed him back. Unwavering fan support helped Danielson to main event status, culminating in a victory over Randy Orton and Dave Bautista (aka Batista) in the 2014 main event at WrestleMania XXX.
The injuries prompted Danielson to retire early in 2016, although he appeared on WWE TV as a leader. However, medical clearance was granted in 2018 after further testing and evaluations, allowing him to participate again.
