Bryan Danielson lavished praise on Eddie Kingston, who has been the opponent of Danielson in the AEW World Championship Eliminator Tournament.

Bryan Danielson wants Eddie Kingston to ‘put in that extra effort’
The former WWE Champion spoke highly of Kingston and said that he is immensely talented. But, Danielson believes that ‘The Mad King’ could be an even better wrestler if he “put in the extra effort.” Bryan also considered his former opponent to be “inspirational.”
“It was interesting because Eddie and I had actually had interviews where I pretty much said the same thing. One, I wanna say this — Eddie is a very inspirational person, a very inspirational human being. But when I look at Eddie, and CM Punk looks at Eddie, and you could see it tonight, right? You look at him, he’s freaking awesome. What would happen if he put in that extra effort, right? You know what I mean? Like he works his a** off when he’s out there,” said Danielson.
Danielson recently defeated Kingston in the semi-final of the AEW World Championship Eliminator Tournament. ‘The American Dragon’ further reminisced his first encounter with Kingston years back. Danielson said that he focused on his pre-match preparations while the ‘Mad King’ chose to stay out late and party. He believes wrestlers’ approach, both in and outside the ring play a major role in the career.
Danielson is in line to get a shot at the AEW World title which was recently won by Hangman Adam Page by defeating Kenny Omega at Full Gear pay-per-view. While, Kingston will be moving forward after coming off a defeat against CM Punk.
