Former WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan has signed with All Elite Wrestling, according to a report from Bodyslam.net.
This news follows previous news regarding CM Punk in talks with the promotion. If both names are signed, it could be a game-changer in many ways.
Bodyslam.net noted that Bryan is “locked up” and has 100% signed the contract with AEW and that the plan is for him to make his debut on 7/21/21 at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York.
There had been rumors lately of two big names signing and those names would be bigger than Andrade El Idolo.
With Brock Lesnar set to return to WWE and Dave Bautista being retired and busy with film engagements, the two biggest names available would be Bryan Danielson and CM Punk and Punk would also be in talks with AEW.
It should be noted that no one from AEW or from Danielson’s side has commented on the story.
