Bryan Danielson Confirms He Will Miss Forbidden Door and Blood & Guts, Mystery Replacement To Be Revealed, Zack Sabre Jr. Appears On Dynamite


Tonight’s AEW Dynamite opened up with top superstar Bryan Danielson addressing the live crowd in Milwaukee and providing an update on his physical condition ahead of this Sunday’s Forbidden Door pay-per-view, and next Wednesday’s Blood and Guts special.

The American Dragon officially confirmed that he will not be competing at either event due to recently sustained injuries, but did seem optimistic that he will return to action soon. In the meantime…Danielson’s Forbidden Door match, which was set against top British grappler Zack Sabre Jr., will still take place. Danielson states that he has handpicked his replacement, and this man will not only face ZSJ, but also take his spot in Blood and Guts against the Jericho Appreciation Society.

Immediately after his announcement ZSJ would make a surprise appearance and talk some trash to Danielson, with the indication that the two will face off some point down the line when Danielson is healthy.
