Former WWE Champion Bryan Danielson is currently in his final run as a full-time performer in AEW and the veteran recently provided an important update about his contract.

The American Dragon has been a great asset to the Jacksonville-based promotion. He joined the company in 2021 and has had great matchups against the likes of Kenny Omega, Will Ospreay, MJF, and more. Bryan is currently a part of the Blackpool Combat Club with Jon Moxley, Wheeler Yuta, and Claudio Castagnoli. The veteran also helps out Tony Khan in the creative team and mainly focuses on the booking of AEW Collision.

Speaking on the TWC Show, Bryan Danielson opened up about his current contract with All Elite Wrestling. He revealed that his contract is set to expire before the All-In 2024 PPV event in Wembley Stadium. Bryan added that he would like to wrestle at Wembley and end his career as a full-time wrestler at the WrestleDream PPV event in Tacoma Dome.

“The big one is Wembley (that is left on my wrestling checklist). I wanna make it to Wembley. My contract actually expires before Wembley. But I wanna make it to Wembley… I’m not sure if I’ll make it, but one thing that would be a nice way to kind of close everything out for me is to do my last match as a full-time wrestler at WrestleDream at the Tacoma Dome.” [H/T: WrestlePurists]
