Zack Sabre Jr. has responded to Bryan Danielson’s AEW WrestleDream challenge.
On the September 9 edition of AEW Collision, Bryan Danielson announced that he made a promise to his daughter that he will finish up his career when she turns 7 and she is 6 right now.
With one year potentially left in his career, Danielson wants to call his shots, so he challenged NJPW World TV Champion Zack Sabre Jr. to a match at AEW WrestleDream on October 1. The match was later made official by AEW President Tony Khan.
After his bout at NJPW Road to Destruction on September 10, ZSJ responded to Danielson’s challenge. He said:
“Dragon bollocks. Bryan Danielson. About bloody time. About bloody time. I’ve been waiting. I’ve been waiting, mate. I’ve been waiting.”
“I can’t think of a better time and a better place than WrestleDream, October 1, the whole event is in honor of Antoni Inoki.”
“I can’t think of a better way to honor Inoki than to find out who the best technical wrestler in the world really is.”
“Bryan, you’re one of the greatest wrestlers that has ever lived, but I surpassed you yonks ago, dickhead. Yonks ago.”
“Bryan, in 2008, you helped kickstart my career. I have some bad news for you, you don’t have another year left. 2008, you jumpstarted Zack Sabre Jr. In 2023, Bryan, I end your career. See you in Seattle, dickhead.”
Danielson and Sabre Jr. were originally scheduled to meet at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door 2022, but Danielson missed the match due to concussion.
