Bryan Danielson not medically cleared for AEW/NJPW Forbidden Door, Blood & Guts


Bryan Danielson announced on Dynamite tonight that he was not medically cleared for Forbidden Door this Sunday or Blood and Guts next week.

Danielson opened tonight’s Dynamite by saying he would have liked to take on Zack Sabre Jr. at Forbidden Door, then follow it up by participating in next week’s Blood and Guts match. He said, however, that due to the actions of Chris Jericho and Jake Hager at Double or Nothing, that he was not medically cleared for either event. He said he can’t wait to back come back, and he did have a replacement for Sabre at Forbidden Door. He said that while he wouldn’t tell the audience who it was, he wasn’t going to tell Sabre either.

The segment ended with Sabre coming out, with the two having a staredown.

Danielson has not competed since the Anarchy in the Arena match at Double or Nothing back on May 29. He lost the match for his team after he got into an argument with Eddie Kingston. This allowed Jericho to gain the advantage, applying the walls of Jericho on Bryan as Jake Hager applied a turnbuckle rope across Danielson’s face, causing him to pass out.
