AEW may be building to a match between Chris Jericho and Bryan Danielson at All Out on September 4.
AEW has confirmed that Danielson will wrestle Daniel Garcia in a 2 out of 3 falls bout on next week’s episode of Dynamite. This comes after Garcia beat Danielson at Fight for the Fallen. Many people believed AEW would do a rematch at All Out, but that’s not the case.
On Wednesday’s Dynamite, Jericho fell short when challenging Jon Moxley for the Interim World Heavyweight Title. Post-match, CM Punk made his return to set up their Undisputed AEW World Title bout for All Out.
While speaking on today’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted the original plan for All Out was for Danielson to wrestle Jericho. It appears the bout is still planned, considering Garcia vs. Danielson is happening on Dynamite.
“They may go with Danielson and Jericho which is the first (plan) I heard for the pay-per-view. When Garcia won (a few weeks ago), I thought they were going in a different direction.”
