Danielson has wrestled all over the world during his extensive career, including winning championships in Japan with Pro Wrestling NOAH and New Japan Pro-Wrestling. He also won the ROH World Championship and ROH Pure Championship and was selected for induction into the ROH Hall of Fame in 2022.

The Aberdeen, Washington-born wrestler is perhaps best known for his time working with the WWE under the name Daniel Bryan. There he won the WWE Championship four times and the World Heavyweight Championship once along with a number of other titles.
