That would be a big one. There have been a lot of changes in wrestling over the last few years and a lot of them have made for some very exciting situations. One of the biggest changes has been the amount of wrestlers moving from one promotion to another. This has given us some great moments, and now we might be in for the biggest change of them all so far.

According to, AEW has signed Daniel Bryan to a deal and Bryan is “locked in” to the company. The deal calls for Bryan to make money close to what he was making in WWE, be able to work in Japan, and to have some creative control over his character. Another report from Bodyslam says that Bryan is expected to debut at Grand Slam on on September 22 in New York City. This comes after Bryan’s WWE contract expired at some point after April 30, when he lost a Universal Title match against Roman Reigns on SmackDown.

Bryan would be a huge get. Check out what he could bring to AEW:

Xavier Woods vs. Otis vs. Daniel Bryan – Triple Threat Match: SmackDown LIVE, July 9, 2019

FULL MATCH - Daniel Bryan vs. Kofi Kingston – WWE Title Match: WrestleMania 35

Daniel Bryan's championship victories: WWE Milestones

Opinion: If, and that is still a big if, this winds up happening, AEW is getting one heck of a coup. Bryan is someone people are going to respond to and he was main eventing WrestleMania less than four months ago. It feels like Kurt Angle jumping in 2006 and hopefully it has that kind of impact. Bryan is going to be a star no matter where he goes and if that is AEW, it’s a big deal for them.

Who do you want Bryan to face in AEW? What will he do there? Let us know in the comments below.
