Bryan Danielson has told fans to expect the best version of himself in Sunday’s first-time match with Will Ospreay at AEW Dynasty.

He was speaking with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated ahead of the much-anticipated encounter between two of the best-regarded wrestlers in the world. Danielson said:

Will is the modern evolution of wrestling. I’m really excited to be wrestling him. Think of all the history in St. Louis, especially with Wrestling at the Chase. I can’t wait for this show. This is a chance for me to produce my absolute best work.

He added that he would be savoring the big occasion ahead of his retirement from a full-time schedule.

I’ll close my eyes during the match so I can feel what wrestling him feels like. Ever since I was forced to retire, I do that in my matches. Soon, I’m not going to feel that on a regular basis.

I want to capture it in my memory. All I’ll have to do is close my eyes, and I’ll be there.

As for his future, Danielson reiterated previous statements that he never intends to fully retire.

Unless something happens medically, I’ll never retire. Now will it be my best work? I don’t know. But there is something to be said about going out and performing in front of a small audience, which I am very passionate about.

But that’s later on. Now, expect the best. That’s what you’re going to get at Dynasty.
