Bryan Danielson Claims He Needs Surgery 'Pretty Soon'

Danielson's doctor told him his neck issues will require surgery.

AEW star Bryan Danielson continues to wrestle while not at 100% health-wise.

While speaking in an AEW digital exclusive promo following this past Saturday's episode of Collision, The American Dragon noted that he may need to go under the knife sooner than later. 

"Somebody paid a price to take out FTR, to take out me before Anarchy In The Arena. We know exactly who it is. No, I hurt my neck real bad. Then I'm wrestling Will Ospreay. I go to give him a Frankensteiner off the top rope. I've never had this happen to me. Dude lands right on his feet. I go straight down on my head, and then later in the match, right before he pins me, he hits me with a storm driver. I got shooting pains down my arm. 

"I'm at home and I have to go get MRIs. I have a compression of the nerve root at C6, C7, and C7, T1. I've got this shooting pain that's running down my arm that won't go away. The doctor is telling me that pretty soon I'm going to have to have surgery. The only way I can hold out, the only way that I can hold out is if I can keep the strength in my right hand. Right now it's still there. I have the shooting pain, but I've still got the strength. So I plan on staying at home, recovering, doing physical therapy," he said. 

Danielson recently noted that his neck was in bad shape heading into Double or Nothing. His current AEW contract is set to expire before All In.
