Bryan Danielson recently suffered an orbital socket eye injury that will see him out of action in AEW until later this year.

With it being confirmed that the injury suffered on last week’s AEW Dynamite wasn’t part of a storyline, it was also noted that it would require surgery according to Tony Schiavone on AEW Collision.
Danielson signed with AEW in 2021 on a three-year contract that would be up after summer 2024.
Following his contract signing, he spoke about the possibility of this being last run as a full-time wrestler.

Dave Meltzer has looked at options for Tony Khan when it comes to Danielson on Wrestling Observer Radio, saying:
“In theory, his contract will be over in September. Obviously, Tony Khan could extend it, but he’s not gonna be a dirty guy in this situation if Bryan wants to be finished.
“If Bryan promised he’s gonna be finished at the end of this contract and he wants to be finished, and there’s nothing you can do if he wants to quit, the guy can always quit. He just couldn’t go to WWE.
“And I don’t think he’s gonna go back to WWE at this point anyway, not that he’s got anything against WWE.
“And you never say never, I don’t want to say he would never do it.”

At AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door, Bryan Danielson defeated Kazuchika Okada in the main event. During the course of the dream match, Danielson suffered a broken arm.
He made his return to the company at AEW All Out when he defeated Ricky Starks in a strap match and would later discuss his physical condition.
However, Danielson suffered the orbital bone injury in a tag match on the October 25 Dynamite as he and Claudio Castagnoli teamed together against Okada and Orange Cassidy.
Cassidy will defend the International Championship against Castagnoli on Dynamite this week, with Danielson’s injury being used as part of the build to the match.
