Prior To his AEW Debut, Bryan Danielson Considered Not Returning To Wrestling ‘At Least For The Next Couple Of Years.'
Bryan Danielson recently joined WFAN’s Moose and Maggie show on Tuesday where he was asked about what influenced him to come over to All Elite Wrestling. He also stated that These Next Three Years As his Last Three Years As A Full-Time Wrestler.
A lot of people look at as there being two options; either WWE or AEW. I'm like, 'or I could just do an Independent schedule where I don't sign with anybody. I did (think about it). I also thought about not coming back to wrestling at all, in the sense of at least the next couple of years.
"I wanted to take the summer off because my daughter started preschool. Just being at home with her every day, she's four, I've left every week or almost every week. I loved it and she loved it, me being home every night. I FaceTime her every night and she's like, 'Daddy, I miss you, I miss your cuddles. Momma doesn't cuddle me like you do.'
"The idea of stepping away until my son starts preschool so I could be there every day for him and my daughter. Then, I'm missing maybe the four years of my productive athletic career and I might not be the same at 45 as I am at 40," Danielson said.
"I see these next three years as my last three years as a full-time wrestler. I don't want to see it as, 'Okay, he's tapering off.' This is the climax of my career. This is the climax of my career, these next three years. It all starts tomorrow."
