Unless something serious happens, Bryan Danielson will always be remembered by the audience as Daniel Bryan. However, it could be even worse for the four-time WWE champion as he came up with a hilarious name before becoming Daniel Bryan.
In an interview with TV insider, American Dragon was asked about people still calling him Daniel Bryan, including AEW commentator Jim Ross. Danielson says that’s fine, as WWE is where he became a household name. He went on to reveal that he went by the name Buddy Peacock.
“I laugh because it happened to people who know me in WWE. CM Punk was on both sides of the spectrum. When I first came to NXT in the original season. That’s the beauty of my name change when I came to WWE. Independents know me as Bryan Danielson. It’s better than some of the other names I’ve recommended, like Buddy Peacock. Jim Ross may know me a little by the name Bryan Danielson, but he’s not closely related. Daniel Bryan is how I made a really big name for myself. So I get it,” said Bryan Danielson.
Bryan Danielson not sure if he can handle AEW
Bryan Danielson has struggled with a large number of matches in AEW and he shows no signs of stopping. However, before signing with Tony Khan’s promotion, he wasn’t entirely sure if he could take on AEW.
“I think it depends on the belief that you can do it. It’s hard to stay away from wrestling for seven years. I questioned if I could keep up with AEW. I’ve been wrestling for the past few years and watching AEW. What they do is crazy. To try and keep up, you have to have faith that you can,” Danielson said.
Hangman Adam Page will defend his first AEW World Championship when he takes on Bryan Danielson at AEW Winter is Coming. He got this opportunity after defeating Miro at Full Gear in the final of the AEW World Title Elimination Tournament.
