One of Bryan Danielson‘s last matches in WWE before departing for All Elite Wrestling felt incredibly off to him.

All Elite Wrestling’s Bryan Danielson recently sat down with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked about competing at WrestleMania 37 against Roman Reigns and Edge, Danielson reflected on feeling nothing during that match and how weird it was for him at the time.

“That was a match people enjoyed,” Bryan Danielson said. “It didn’t mean anything to me. I felt nothing. You have to remember—it was our first time back in front of a live crowd [since the start of the pandemic], and we were in front of thousands of people. I felt nothing during that match. I was trying my best, but it felt like I was going through the motions.

“Then I wrestled Roman in the ThunderDome in front of all these screens, and I loved that match. It was the perfect way for me to end my WWE career. Putting together the [WrestleMania] match, I could feel a little bit of my apathy, but that’s happened before and then I walk out there and I feel, ‘This is what I live for.’ That was very weird psychologically.

“Something was wrong. It was very glaring to me. There was one match, I was super sick when I wrestled Matt Menard on Dynamite last year. It was a pretty short match, though it did go through a commercial break, and I just wanted to get through it. Turns out, I went out there and had a blast. I went to the back, and for 30 more minutes, I felt great. Then I started feeling horrible again. The surprise for me is always when a match isn’t fun. I’ll be very surprised if I wrestle MJF for an hour and I don’t have fun.”

The American Dragon has pretty much done it all in the world of professional wrestling, but this Sunday at AEW Revolution is his first-ever Iron Man match. Danielson said he’s always thinking about what he can do that he hasn’t done before.

“I’m always thinking about what I can do that I haven’t done before,” Bryan Danielson said. “I’ve been wrestling for 23 years, and this is my first Iron Man match. This is my way of creating art.”
