Danielson sustained a a fractured arm during the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door event on June 25 in a match against Kazuchika Okada, Bryan Danielson remained out of action until September 3, when he made his comeback to the ring in a strap match against Ricky Starks.
“Our doctors would still not like me to do certain things, but from like two weeks ago when I had the tag match the strength in my hand is coming back way faster than they thought it would, the mobility and all that stuff,” Danielson said. “I still have to be cautious probably for the next year or so. They put a steel rod in my arm. One of the things they said is that it actually makes it more likely to break not where it broke before, but where the end of the rod is. It’s like a fulcrum for the bone to bend against.”
