The main event of AEW Dynamite: Beach Break saw Orange Cassidy take on Adam Cole in a Lights Out Match. This was a grudge encounter, to say the least, and it was expected that they’d hold nothing back in this no-holds-barred encounter. What viewers in attendance, as well as those viewing from home, didn’t expect was a more comedic spot. During the match in question, Cole looked under the ring for weaponry. As he attempted to pull out a steel chair, he seemed puzzled by the apparent weight on the other side. Cole finally pulled the chair out and holding onto the other end was former Ring of Honor star Danhausen. Though he didn’t engage in physical contact, the ghoulish, “Very Nice, Very Evil” independent wrestler stared down Cole, who soon found himself caught off-guard by Cassidy. Danhausen quietly took his leave following his surprise AEW Dynamite debut before company President and CEO Tony Khan confirmed that he is All Elite.

What to Know Regarding “Very Nice, Very Evil” Independent Star

As mentioned earlier, Danhausen was a Ring of Honor star prior to the company’s closure this past October. It was during this time that he brought his own unique blend of comedy and theatrics to the competitive promotion. Beyond this, he is known as one of the most popular stars on the independent scene today, as well as social media at large. From t-shirts to action figures to even a unique coffee blend, this “Very Nice, Very Evil” personality is among the most marketed in the world of indie wrestling. Danhausen isn’t a wrestler known for his various accolades; instead, it’s his outlandish personality, which shines during matches, that captured the attention of fans around the world.

As mentioned earlier, Danhausen is All Elite, meaning that he has officially signed with All Elite Wrestling. This also makes him the company’s first new signing of 2022. It’s also worth noting that ROH is preparing for an April return with its Supercard of Honor event, and while there have been no matches confirmed as of yet, one may wonder if he’ll play a role here.
