On the latest "What Happened When" podcast, Tony Schiavone reviewed an episode of World Championship Wrestling from 9/27/86 and he spent a few minutes talking about AEW and Bryan Danielson:

Tony talking about the upcoming Kenny Omega-Bryan Danielson match and Danielson in general:

“It should be great on many levels. I’ve had a chance to spend some time with Bryan Danielson. Man, what a brilliant guy as far as the business is concerned. I love the fact that he has a very strong independent wrestling background. I think it gives independent guys and girls something to strive for. You can be a big star on the independent circuit and you can still make it big. Even when he made his appearance in Chicago, after we went off the air, I don’t know if this ever aired on social media or not, but he talked about the guys and the girls in the back, and the people who had busted their ass on the independent circuit.”
