Bryan Danielson Thought Doctors Would Speak To Him About Retirement After Recent Injury AEW

Bryan Danielson has opened up about his heath, admitting that he thought doctors would be concerned about him wrestling following his recent injury.

The AEW star was notably pulled from plans for the June 28 Forbidden Door pay-per-view after it was revealed he wasn’t medically cleared to compete.

With Danielson’s history of concussions, many fans grew concerned for Danielson’s health during his AEW absence.

During a live edition of The Sessions at Starrcast V, Danielson noted that he puts a lot of effort into keeping his brain healthy.

Commenting on his recent injury, Danielson said:

“It’s interesting, this last one, he said, ‘After you start feeling better, we’re going to have to have a serious talk about your long-term health.’ I thought what that meant was, ‘After you feel better, I’m going to talk to you about not wrestling anymore.’

“Then my brain scans came back so goddamn good that not a single person could say anything about it. I do put a lot of work and effort into keeping my brain healthy and doing things outside of normal stuff to keep my brain healthy. I think that’s paying dividends a little bit,” he said.

“The developments in medicine and science are so much better. There is a lot of like hyperbaric oxygen therapy. For those that do care, it’s being placed in a tube where it’s 1.5 atmospheres of pressure, a lot of oxygen being flooded into your brain.

“A lot of the military is doing it for people who have had concussions. It’s not FDA approved yet. That stuff is a long process. I did that, 100 sessions of that, where I’m in there for an hour and a half each time.”

Danielson returned to the ring at AEW Dynamite: Fight For The Fallen, losing to Daniel Garcia in the main event of the show. The bout marked Danielson’s first singles loss since he was defeated by Jon Moxley at AEW Revolution in March.
