Last night's episode of AEW Collision kicked off with Tony Schiavone interviewing Bryan Danielson in the ring. During their conversation, the American Dragon revealed that he promised his daughter he would retire when she turns 7. Now, she's 6. 

Strongly suggesting this will be his final year in the ring, Danielson vowed to "not go gently into that good night" and added, "This will be the most epic year of my career." 

With that, he vowed to take on the man who claims to be the best wrestler in the world: Zack Sabre Jr. Both Danielson and fans have long made their interest known in this bout and it's widely believed to have been set for All In before the former leader of the Yes Movement's recent injury. 

Ricky Starks and Big Bil then hit the ring, with the heels attacking the fan-favourite babyface. Jon Moxley quickly showed up to make the save, though Starks and his ally were the ones who ultimately stood tall.

It's unclear what the future holds in store for Danielson if this is indeed his final year wrestling. It doesn't appear he has any great desire to end his career in WWE and AEW President Tony Khan has said on a number of occasions that he'd trust Bryan to take over from him creatively if the need were to ever arise.

With that in mind, we could see him become a pivotal part of AEW from a backstage standpoint (Tony needs a lot of help), though there will still be those who would be happier seeing him back in WWE for one final run! 

Later in AEW Collision, it was confirmed that Bryan Danielson and Zack Sabre Jr. will go head-to-head at the AEW WrestleDream PPV that takes place on October 1 in Seattle, Washington.

This could be a classic and potentially match of the year.

At the moment I would say Kenny Omega Vs Will Osprey are the two best matches of the year.
