Bryan Danielson felt like he was going to die during WrestleMania 37 match



Bryan Danielson has had a crazy year as he’s gone from working the main event of WrestleMania 37 to now being the #1 contender for the AEW World Heavyweight Title.

Danielson brought up how he had a bizarre experience in the match.

“The Wrestlemania moment was just weird, I really honestly didn’t feel like I belonged in that triple threat match with Roman and Edge. I thought the story was strong enough on its own for it to be just them. I knew for sure what I was going to do contract-wise, but I knew I was going to be taking some time off. When my contract expired, it was the last day of April. I was like okay even If I come back I should do something where I wrestle somebody else and kind of put them over at Wrestlemania. I thought Jey Uso would’ve been a great choice for that but you know somebody else in that vein. So that was my thinking going out. When I walked out for the match at Wrestlemania, it felt so empty. Fans were cheering and all that kind of stuff. When I wrestle, I feel everything. What I remember most about that match is just feeling empty and thinking oh man, I legitimately felt like am I gonna die… Is this a premonition that I’m gonna die and I wasn’t even freaked out.“

Danielson decided to not renew his contract with WWE and took the summer off to think about his future in the wrestling business. He made the hard decision to sign with AEW instead of staying with WWE. You can watch the entire interview by clicking on the player below:
