The wrestling world at AEW All Out came to a halt when Bryan Danielson (formerly known as Daniel Bryan in WWE) joined the promotion (a few weeks after the much-anticipated debut of CM Punk). Danielson’s first match on AEW took place on Dynamite on Wednesday night, the biggest episode of the show in the company’s history.
Danielson wrestled AEW Champion Kenny Omega to a 30-minute draw. This may seem like an anti-climax. Wrestling fans have dubbed the match a classic. Everyone has a 30-minute classic on Dynamite after watching Kenny Omega and Brian Danielson.

Danielson and Omega have both been called the best in the world, so Wednesday’s wrestling match was a must-watch for fans on TV. It was an important wrestling show for AEW. The match was played at the 20,000-seat Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York.

There is constant pressure, in such a time a big match has come to the fore. AEW Dynamite has beaten WWE RAW several times in the 18-49 TV rankings in recent weeks. AEW has captured the likes of Danielson and CM Punk.
