Cassidy Haynes of Bodyslam.net recently reported that Daniel Bryan had signed with All Elite Wrestling. The former WWE Superstar reportedly wanted to have several caveats with whoever he signed with next, and it appears as though AEW had what he was looking for.

Haynes recently appeared on WrestlingINC’s Daily podcast with Nick Hausman. Cassidy would confirm on the show exactly what Danielson was looking for before he signed on the dotted line for All Elite.

“I know that he asked to have fewer dates, comparable money,” Haynes began. “He wanted to work in Japan, and he wanted to be able to have creative input on his character and storylines and stuff, and he got all that.”
