Bryan Danielson Says Being Old And Clumsy Led To Leg Trapped Incident

Bryan Danielson Says Being Old And Clumsy Led To Leg Trapped Incident AEW

AEW star Bryan Danielson believes being old and clumsy led to his leg getting trapped between the ring and the ramp on last week’s Rampage.

As previously mentioned, All Elite Wrestling released the video of Bryan Danielson getting his leg trapped between the ring and the elevated ramp after last Friday’s AEW Rampage went off the air.

It was announced on this week’s Dynamite that the AEW star had suffered an injury thanks to this incident.

Speaking with Graham “GSM” Matthews of Bleacher Report, Danielson discussed how he was feeling following the incident.

He said:

“I laugh at myself. It was my birthday, I just turned 41, I’m this old man who falls into these cracks and can’t get out. If you remember Steve Urkel from Family Matters, I don’t know if it was a regular thing he said, but all that went through my head was, ‘I’m Steve Urkel and I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.’ My ankle and just below my knee are a little bit swollen. I like physical things so even when I’m not wrestling, I like to do jiu-jitsu or kickboxing or hiking. I’m used to things being swollen. I took my kids hiking two days this week, but they are kids hikes, my son is not even two so it’s really just walking, and that was, ‘Okay, I can feel this a little.’ I find it fascinating from a performer’s standpoint, the second I put my wrestling gear on, I feel invincible, no matter what is hurting me. I put my gear on and I’m ready to go. I’m looking at my ankle right now and thinking, ‘Uhhh,’ but when I put my gear on, it feels like there is nothing in the world that can hurt me. I know that’s not true, but that’s how it feels.”

The American Dragon continued on to say his reaction to Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston afterwards, saying:

“I was laughing after with Eddie Kingston and Mox. ‘Of course.’ This would have never happened at 28, I would have been very aware of my surroundings, now I’m just this old clumsy man who slips in things.”

Bryan Danielson will make his return to the ring in the Anarchy In The Arena Match when he teams up with Eddie Kingston, Santana, Ortiz and fellow Blackpool Combat Club member Jon Moxley against the Jericho Appreciation Society at this Sunday’s AEW Double Or Nothing pay-per-view.
