SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
The Bryan Danielson injury at the AEW Rampage tapings this week was reportedly a worked angle.
Bryan Alvarez is reporting that Danielson is physically fine after his leg got caught in between the AEW Dynamite entrance ramp and ring. The report indicates that the situation and injury was an angle coming out of an idea that Danielson had and that everyone involved played up their concern factor.
Danielson and fellow Blackpool Combat Club member, Jon Moxley, wrestled Dante Martin & Matt Sydal. The angle went down after the match and was caught by multiple fan videos that were then posted on social media.
