I figured I'd post this here, because the opponents in this are mostly bootlegs, but this isn't a full-fledged fed. In any case...
In 2016, Bryan Danielson retired from professional wrestling. As a fan of his since 2010, and of Filsinger Games, I decided that I would do a little tribute retirement tour, with 10 matches, some he's faced before, and some dream match-ups. So right here, we start...

The Match Joe starts off going for a clothesline, which Danielson ducks, and goes for a European uppercut, but Joe grabs the arm, and attempts for a pull-in clothesline, which Danielson once again ducks, then hits a flurry of European uppercuts before Joe stops them once again, and whips Danielson into the ropes. Danielson bounces off, and hits Joe with a front dropkick, angling it so Joe hits the corner, enabling Danielson to get Joe to the top, and hit a back superplex. Joe stumbles to the opposite corner, where Danielson hits a running missile dropkick. He then applies a lifting surfboard, which Joe breaks out of, but Danielson is quick to stay on the offensive, and nails another European uppercut, followed by another missle dropkick. Danielson sends Joe into the ropes, as he runs the opposite ropes, and hits a flying clothesline to the Samoan Submission specialist. Joe back suplexes Danielson out of a side headlock, hits a shoulder block, and a spinning back kick, before Danielson rolls out of the way of a senton splash. Danielson hits an impressive neckbreaker drop, dropkicks Joe off the ropes into another European uppercut, which staggers the bigger man, setting him up for his roundhouse kick combination. After the kick to the head, Danielson goes for the cover, but only gets 2.
Joe rolls out of the ring after the pin attempt, but that doesn't stop Danielson, as he suicide dives through the top and middle rope, and tackles straight into him. After being a bit slow to get him into the ring, Joe is able to capitalize, reversing another uppercut, and decking the American Dragon with a right hand, then hitting a snap powerslam, and gets him into the corner for 3 straight spinning back kicks. However, Danielson again avoids taking a big senton splash, this time getting the knees up. Danielson quickly capitalizes, and hits a missile dropkick that forces Joe into the corner hard, getting 2 and a half going for a pin attempt. Danielson gets Joe into the corner again, and hits another back superplex, then rushes to the opposite corner, climbs up, and hits a stunning top rope missile dropkick, Joe kicking out again. Finally, Danielson hits one last back superplex, finally getting the 1-2-3, getting the first win in his Retirement Tour.
