Bryan Danielson, formerly Daniel Bryan in WWE, has just joined AEW and brought some fellow ex-WWE Superstars with him.
We’ve been saying it for a while now that Bryan Danielson was headed to AEW. It’s been an open secret on the internet. However, what we didn’t know was when and how he would debut.

Sunday night at AEW All Out we got to see his debut and the debut of Ruby Soho formally Ruby Riott in WWE and Adam Cole [BAY BAY].
After the main event of the PPV, Kenny Omega vs Christian Cage for the AEW World Championship, Omega and The Elite attacked Cage and then Jurassic Express came out to try to rescue him. They got beaten down by The Elite as well. Omega got the mic and said that there was no one who could beat him.
Adam Cole came out to a big pop and got in Omega’s face. It looked like the two were about to go to war, but then Cole superkicked Jungle Boy. Thus Cole has joined The Elite and AEW.
YES! YES! YES! Bryan Danielson Is All Elite
However, when the PPV looked like it was about to end we heard a familiar theme. “Flight of the Valkyries” played, but with a twist and a little bit added to the song. Bryan Danielson cleared out The Elite and saved everyone. This seems to set up a feud for Danielson and Omega so if that comes true that’ll be pretty interesting.

Bryan Danielson took to Twitter to make his first tweet since officially joining AEW to thank everyone involved in making his AEW debut amazing. He also thanked Elliott Taylor for his new theme Born For Greatness.
“Thank you to the men and women who have worked so hard to make @aew what it is today. I’m still buzzing from last night, and that was only possible because of what you built. I am #AllElite… now it’s time to kick some f’kn heads in.
Speaking of kicking peoples heads in, many thanks (and love!) to the incredible @ElliottTaylorCA for making my entrance music… it got me PUMPED,” Danielson said.
However, Bryan Danielson and Adam Cole weren’t the only two to make their big AEW debut at All Out.
Ruby Soho Has Entered And Is About To Spice Up The Women’s Division
Ruby Soho made her debut during the Casino Battle Royal match. Battle Royal’s are just made for debuts and Soho’s debut was exactly why. The typical Battle Royal chaos ensued and everyone wondered who would be entered at the joker spot. They didn’t have to wait too long as Soho was revealed to be the joker. It came down to Soho, Thunder Rosa, Tay Conti and Nyla Rose. Then down to Soho and Rosa after Rose was eliminated. After a struggle on the apron Soho eliminated Rosa and won her debut.
Despite the AEW women’s division getting a lot of criticism early on it is starting to flourish. Soho will bring a lot of personality and experience to the division and add a lot of life to it.
What do you think of the debuts? Were they done right or would you have changed them? Do you think all three will do well in AEW or should they have gone to a different promotion? Is Bryan Danielson vs Kenny Omega a good first feud? Or would you rather have seen Danielson feud with someone else like maybe CM Punk? Who would you like to see Cole feud with? Leave a comment below and let us know who you want to see Soho feud with in AEW.
