They fought the dream match but it ended in a draw after it exceeded the thirty minutes time limit. Wrestling Observer Radio reported that some believed Danielson was injured during his match with Omega, but official word has come back that he wasn’t, and he just did a great job selling.

Bryan Danielson considered other options besides WWE and AEW
In a recent interview with WFAN’s Moose & Maggie, Danielson revealed he was considering other options besides AEW and WWE when his contract with WWE ended. He was the hottest free agent in the wrestling industry after his contract with WWE expired. Danielson recently joined the Moose and Maggie show and spoke about his move to AEW and how difficult it was for him to make that decision.
“There wasn’t any convincing that Tony could do. I’d already seen the product. It was a different situation (than Punk). I was under contract with WWE,” Danielson said when asked if he needed convincing to join AEW. “The big, the hard thing for me is my loyalty to specifically Vince McMahon. I have a great relationship with him. I love that man. And he’s done so much for me and my family, and the things I’ve learned, and that kind of stuff. So that was the hard thing. There was also a lot of people look at it in terms of two options. ‘You’re either going to be with WWE or AEW.’ But part of me was like ‘or I could just do like an independent schedule where I don’t sign with anybody.’ And I also thought about not coming back to wrestling at all, in the sense of at least the next couple of years.”
