Bryan Danielson has responded to allegations from the giant formerly known as ‘the Big Show,’ Paul Wight that he is a bully in the AEW locker room.
Speaking to Robbie Fox on My Mom’s Basement about Wight’s report that he is a “bully to giants,” Danielson wishes to reframe the narrative, saying:
“He initially tries to bully me, and I stand up for myself. I do bully other people. Sometimes giants. Only occasionally giants. I come in hot. When I come into the locker room, I come in hot. I’m not coming in there to be soft on these guys. I come in and everybody is on their phone, I’m going to yell at them.
Sometimes, I’ll be on the training table and Paul will come up and grab me in some sort of way and I’ll immediately, as fast as I can, try to armbar him. That does happen. Not that he’s a giant, but I am constantly trying to takedown Jake Hager. He’s got a (amateur wrestling and MMA) background. It’s not like I’m trying to single leg Brandon Cutler all the time. I don’t know anything about his single leg defense, but it’s not like I see him, he’s walking down the hall, and I’m going to double leg this guy. That’s not my deal. I’m going for the big guys.”
Bryan Danielson is back in action on tonight’s AEW Dynamite (July 27) where he’s set to make his return to the ring after time off due to injury.

Also on tonight’s show, Ricky Starks defends the FTW Championship against Danhausen, Dante Martin vs. Sammy Guevara, Tony Nese and ‘Smart’ Mark Sterling taking on Swerve Strickland in a 2:1 match and two big championship bouts.
