Update On Bryan Danielson's AEW Future Beyond 2024

Tony Khan has spoken on Danielson's AEW future.

The final countdown is currently on as far as Bryan Danielson's full-time in-ring career is concerned. The 42-year-old has made it known that he will cease wrestling on a full-time basis at some point in 2024. 

Speaking with The Athletic (subscription required), AEW CEO Tony Khan noted that The American Dragon will remain with the company 'in spirit' once his bone-bending days have wound down.

"Bryan and I made an agreement three years to the week before AEW All In 2024. The agreement was that Bryan would wrestle (full-time) for three years. Even three years in advance of the expiration of the agreement, I was already clawing for him to stay. He will stay with us in spirit and sometimes, occasionally, make sporadic appearances with us. But the end of the full-time run with us is going to be in 2024," Khan said.

Danielson returned to active competition on the December 1 edition of Collision, defeating Eddie Kingston in the Continental Classic tournament. He is considered the slight favourite to win the whole tournament.

The former WWE Champion also recently confirmed that he was, in fact, part of the disciplinary committee that decided to fire CM Punk from AEW.
