The AEW World title Eliminator has been one of the major draws from the Tony Khan led company and so has been former WWE superstar Bryan Danielson (f.k.a. Daniel Bryan). The former WWE World champion has managed to head into the semifinals of the AEW World Title Eliminator and is just a couple of steps away from glory in his new home.

Bryan defeated Dustin Rhodes in the most recent edition of AEW Dynamite which is considered one of the best matches the company has seen in months. The fans were delighted to see Bryan advance to the semifinals and get closer to a world championship glory in his new company, AEW. The former WWE Superstar made his name registered in AEW a few months ago and has already brought himself in the tp tier of superstars.

But Bryan Danielson’s next step wouldn’t be very easy because the former WWE Champion will face Eddie Kingston at AEW Rampage on Friday. Kingston defeated Lance Archer in the recent edition of AEW Dynamite and paved his way into the semifinals of the tournament as well. Kinston and Bryan will now square off in the finals of the AEW World title Eliminator.

Bryan Danielson recently penned a ‘Thank You’ note to WWE

This year, on WWE, Bryan delivered a blockbuster feud against the Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Edge at Wrestlemania 37. Post the feud, his contract expired. WWE tried every possible move to get him re-sign with the company. They even went as far as agreeing to allow him to appear on NJPW but the leader of the Yes movement had chose AEW as his new home. But the former WWE Champion didn’t wait to thank WWE and the chairman Vince McMahon for whatever they gave him.

“Thank you to the Big Man, who I know hates to be acknowledged. I won’t say much, but thank you for the conversations, the life lessons (about both what to do and what not to do), and the best hug I’ve ever received. I wish more people could see you how I see you.”
