Bryan Danielson has been one of the top stars in WWE for years now, but when his contract expired a few months ago he decided to part ways with the company. Bryan made his debut with All Elite Wrestling at the All Out pay-per-view, and now he’s wrapped up in a feud with The Elite.

Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Bryan Danielson had incredible respect for Vince McMahon, and that Bryan kept a notebook of things he learned from the Chairman of the Board. Every time Bryan learned something from Vince he would reportedly write it down.

It was also noted that even though WWE offered Bryan limited dates, and the opportunity to work in Japan he still left the company. Meltzer clarified that even though WWE gave Bryan permission to work in Japan, it’s not clear if NJPW had agreed to do business with WWE.

Bryan Danielson will be with AEW for some time as he signed a three year deal with the company. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
