Danhausen shares his thoughts about the idea of collaborating with AEW.
Several months ago, Danhausen suffered a broken tibia and fibula during a match for the Next Generation Wrestling promotion in Tennessee. Despite the injury, he has continued to make appearances and do signings at events.
He told Bleacher Report that he’s taking all of January off to focus on physical therapy. He began physical therapy in December and said doing certain things that were once easy are now quite difficult.
All of January is taken off to do physical therapy and hopefully getting this muscly leg back to being muscly. It’s going OK. I had my first day of physical therapy [last month] on this robotic leg Danhausen has now and doing easy things are quite hard to do now such as stretches and body weight squats. We shall get there and get even stronger like The Terminator.
The theme song Danhausen uses was created by ‘Two Minutes To Late Night’ and it is a parody of ‘Tequila’ by The Champs. He wanted to use the song while he was in Ring of Honor but they wanted Danhausen to use in-house music.
Danhausen owns it now, they gave Danhausen the rights to it. Danhausen tried [to use it in Ring of Honor]. They wanted Danhausen to use their house music or whatever it was. Danhausen tried to push it… but they said, ‘Meh.’ Danhausen would love to get John Carpenter or Danny Elfman to make him music, too. One of the two would be cool.
While he is a free agent, Danhausen does have aspirations of working with All Elite Wrestling. He listed off a handful of names he’d like to be featured on-screen with such as ‘Pepsi Man’ CM Punk.
There is a certain place, and I don’t think it’s been a secret, that Danhausen would like to have wrestling matches with lots of people because they are all there. We can try to team with MJF or punch him in the groin if he tries to betray Danhausen. Danhausen has unfinished business with Corey [Cody Rhodes] from, like, three years ago. Danhausen needs to team with ‘Pepsi Man’ CM Punk, obviously. He needs to face Adam Page because he’s calling out Danhausen at comic cons in Chicago. There seems to be only one place for Danhausen.
Danhausen could be CM Punk’s legend like how Darby [Allin] has Sting. We could do that and give him some advice as to how to take the championship. Danhausen has a lot of good friends there. Orange Cassidy is one of them. The Dark Order seems pretty evil. Britt Baker seems to deal with teeth. Chris Judas, perhaps I can join [Inner Circle]. Santana and Ortiz are looking quite evil nowadays. There’s a whole list of people Danhausen loves at that company. We shall make enemies with them or make friends with them or whatever.
