Daniel Bryan (real name Bryan Danielson) left WWE following a loss to Roman Reigns on SmackDown back in May. Since then, there have been rumours surrounding the veteran performer and his contract status.
"We were told that Danielson was wanting to work less dates for comparable money, he wanted the ability to be able to work in Japan, and wanted to have creative input on his character, all of which he got."
The new report from Bodyslam claims that the tentative plan for Daniel Bryan's AEW debut is this September in New York City. AEW will be heading to Arthur Ashe Stadium on September 22nd, the first time that a wrestling event is being held at the world-renowned tennis venue. It's at this historic event for the company that Bryan will apparently be making his debut for the company.
AEW will be holding their ALL OUT PPV event on September 5th. However, Bodyslam has noted that All Elite want to hold off on Bryan appearing at that show, instead spreading out their major surprises with the new rumours that CM Punk will be making his own AEW debut at that event.
As of now, no other sources have confirmed the news regarding Daniel Bryan and his proposed debut at the Arthur Ashe Stadium event for All Elite.

"The plan was to hold off debuting Danielson until after all of their plans for All Out were wrapped up, and to bring him in after the PPV. However, with the news of CM Punk’s potential AEW debut may have caused plans to change."
