Bryan Danielson says he was asked by WWE not to use the “Yes” chants, Thanks WWE –
During an interview with Rasslin with Bradon F. Walker, Bryan Danielson said he isn’t using the ‘yes’ chant in AEW, further stating that saying that he is respecting WWE’s intellectual property.
Danielson noted that while he will lead others in doing the chant, he won’t do it himself, which he said is from a conversation with Kevin Dunn prior to his debut with AEW.
“I’m not doing it myself because I respect WWE’s intellectual property…I don’t think anything legally, they haven’t threatened anything legally. So I had a great conversation with Kevin Dunn with WWE before I debuted with AEW. I was very upfront with WWE about, ‘Okay, I want to let you guys know I’m leaving. This is my debut date’ and all that kind of stuff. They asked me, politely, to respect their intellectual property, even some of the things that couldn’t be legally enforced. I’m trying my best to do that.”
Danielson made his debut for AEW at the All Out PPV back on September 5.
Prior to his in-ring AEW debut tonight at AEWDynamite: Grand Slam at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, NY, Danielson wrote a blog that was posted on Player’s Tribune thanking WWE.
