Bryan Danielson is set to compete as part of Team AEW at Double or Nothing on May 26 and has recently spoken about his health.

Danielson will team with Cash Wheeler, Dax Harwood, and Darby Allin to take on The Elite (The Young Bucks (Matthew & Nicholas Jackson), Jack Perry & Kazuchika Okada in an Anarcy in the Arena match at the pay-per-view.
With Danielson last in singles action against Will Ospreay at AEW Dynasty on April 21, an injury angle was played out at the event.
Since then, Danielson has been seen in tag action twice in May on Collision and Dynamite.

In recent comments, Danielson has provided an update on his own health during an appearance on The Wrestling Classic, saying:
“My neck hurts… So yeah, I’m having some issues with my neck. There was a thing where I gave [Ospreay] a Frankensteiner and he landed on his feet.
“And there like 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.”

Danielson would go on to discuss how he is handling the issues, saying:
“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 your… 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 I… 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… So it’s like… So, when you look at it in that… 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 has recently revealed that his AEW contract ends before the August 2024 AEW All In in London, England.
He has also spoken about wanting to wrestle his last match at AEW WrestleDream in October 2024.
