Bryan Danielson Still Dealing With Neck Issues Ahead Of AEW Double Or Nothing

Bryan Danielson’s neck is not 100% ahead of AEW Double or Nothing 2024

With Eddie Kingston out of action due to injury, Darby Allin is set to team with FTR and Bryan Danielson against The Young Bucks at AEW Double or Nothing on May 26. Allin is not 100% ahead of the Anarchy in the Arena Match, though, and neither is teammate Bryan Danielson.

Danielson took several weeks off following his instant classic with Will Ospreay at AEW Dynasty on April 21, a match that saw Ospreay drill Danielson with the Storm Driver ’93. In an interview with The Wrestling Classic, Danielson revealed that his neck still isn’t 100% ahead of Double or Nothing, saying the following:

“Yeah, my neck hurts. So yeah, I’m having some issues with my neck. There was a thing where I gave him [Ospreay] a Frankensteiner and he landed on his feet. And there in the background - nobody noticed it I don’t think at the time… I’m not on social media much. But yeah, so when I did it, I landed right on my head. And I was like, ‘Oh my gosh!’ Like, I didn’t know and I’ve needed some time after that to… you know… It’s… The MRIs I’m okay. But like, how do I feel on a day-to-day basis? My neck is like… you know,” said Danielson.

Danielson continued, noting he is also dealing with ulnar nerve pain:

“But the interesting thing, one of the things that - and I don’t know if this is good or if this is bad  - but you come to see pain as perception. It’s just like a… It’s a perception. And especially like, for example, in meditation… So, I get a lot of Ulnar Nerve Pain, which is when you have, I think it’s C-67. When those are compressed like pain that comes down the back of your arm into your pinky and all that kind of stuff.

“And so when you’re sitting in meditation, that doesn’t go away. And you look and you go to examine what is that. What is that? And so we identify it as bad and negative. But those are also mental constructions of what it is. It’s just a signal that something is going on. And when I’ve started to see pain is that more and more as I’ve gotten older and that sort of thing. And I find it to be a very useful Paradigm as far as how I look at pain. Because it can also be like, ‘okay, that means this needs to be fixed, or it means this needs to be done differently,’ Or you know, all those different things. Yeah it’s a signal,” Danielson said.

Danielson, Darby Allin, and FTR are set to take on The Elite (The Young Bucks, Kazuchika Okada, and Jack Perry) at AEW Double or Nothing on May 26.
