Bryan Danielson Is Not Currently Cleared To Fly

Bryan Danielson was pulled from next weekend’s WrestleCade this week due to “unforeseen circumstances.” It was reportedly by shortly after that the reason Danielson was pulled was due to lingering issues related to a broken orbital bone he is suffering from. The injury occurred during a match against Andrade El Idolo when the two had a miscue while doing a routine collar and elbow lock-up.

On today’s AEW Full Gear media call, AEW President Tony Khan was asked about Danielson being pulled from the event and if it had anything to do with his injury.

“I don’t want to speak for him on that, but I know Bryan always puts the wrestling as a priority,” he began. “There’s also the issue of we’re waiting for Bryan to get final clearance to fly. He was able to come to Collision in Oakland this past weekend because it was a drive that he was able to make.

“But he’s not able to fly; he can ride in a car. So, Pittsburgh is a long way from where he lives, and also WrestleCade, I believe, was a long way from where he lives. So there’s a couple of things still at play there. But I would let him speak to that. But I’m not too familiar with that event. So, I can’t say.”

Danielson was recently announced for AEW: All In 2024 from Wembley Stadium in London, England.
