Current AEW star Bryan Danielson has reiterated that he does not plan on being full-time pro-wrestler for much longer.
Danielson has talked ever since he was still in WWE about reducing his schedule, but he’s still worked pretty regularly in AEW so far.
According to the man himself on One Fall, he will be cutting back when his AEW contract is up.
“I would like to wrestle a match two weeks before I die, right? And to not know that it’s my last match. That would kind of be my ideal situation but I’m not gonna be a full-time wrestler for much longer (Danielson laughed).
“That all said, I’m not gonna be a full-time wrestler for much longer.
“When my AEW contract is up, that’s pretty much me being done being a full-time wrestler but I like the way some people like Terry Funk and Jerry Lawler and those kind of guys do it where they do it for fun, right?
“And don’t do it all the time, they do it here or there, that sort of thing. But as long as I have fun doing it and as long as I experience joy doing it, it’s something I wanna continue doing for the rest of my life.
“I saw my kids on Tuesday and there’s a chance if something happens to me, I may never see them again, right? And all that does, rather than be morbid about it is to not take things for granted.
“But every time that I get a chance to wrestle, it’s beautiful and every time that I get to wake up with my kids and make them breakfast and put them to bed at night is beautiful too and you can even extrapolate that to each individual breath, in it’s own way is beautiful and different.”
Danielson had previously revealed he’d signed a three-year deal running until September 2024.
His latest outing came at Full Gear this past Saturday (November 19) when he unsuccessfully challenged for the ROH World Championship in a four-way against Sammy Guevara, Claudio Castagnoli, and defending champion and winner, Chris Jericho.
