On a recent edition of his “Wrestling With Freddie” podcast, Freddie Prinze Jr. noted that fans would find it difficult to boo Bryan Danielson now that the veteran star says he’s in the final year of his in-ring career.
Danielson announced on AEW Collision earlier this month that he will retire from in-ring competition next year.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On Bryan Danielson’s future as a babyface: “Over the next year, I don’t know if there’s gonna be a bigger babyface than Bryan Danielson. He basically announced that he has a year left of wrestling …This being his last year, I’m telling you right now, he will do no wrong in the eyes of fans. He can do anything he wants to anyone in the company, and it’ll come off like a babyface because your favorite football player just told you this is his last season.”
On Danielson: “[He] is one of the greatest professional wrestlers ever. His skills on the mic developed over the years to the point where … [he’s at] a very high level. This guy is a special, special wrestler. He’s a man’s man … We’re lucky to have seen him wrestle.”
