Former WWE Champion Daniel Bryan rose to superstardom in 2014 thanks to his organic rise as a babyface. This culminated in him winning both the WWE and World Heavyweight Championships at WrestleMania 30 after Bryan defeated Randy Orton and Batista in a triple threat match. Matt Riddle also dropped a huge Daniel Bryan bombshell.
Daniel Bryan, now known as Bryan Danielson, discussed why he left WWE for AEW after the end of AEW All Out, as seen in the tweets below. Adam Cole also debuted, reuniting with The Elite. Jim Ross ‘botched’ a major WWE star’s AEW debut.
According to Ringside News, it was revealed that “AEW is in discussions about projects with [John] Laurinaitis.” John Laurinaitis has spoken to Tony Khan about working with AEW on a future project.
It was further reported that “Laurinaitis has spoken with Tony Khan about biographies on certain talent that is now in AEW.” While no names were mentioned, it is likely former WWE Superstars such as Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, Jim Ross, Cody Rhodes and Bryan Danielson could be used for the documentaries.
WWE working together on a project, regardless of its nature, is certainly a huge step in the right direction for the growth of the pro wrestling world as a whole.
There's a theory going that WWE is working with Impact Wrestling to get back at AEW. False.
We were told that "AEW is in discussions about projects with [John] Laurinaitis."
WWE wants to use AEW talent for some upcoming documentaries they are doing. They're playing nice.
