When John Danaher announced that the Danaher Death Squad was going their separate ways, there was a ton of questions surrounding the future of training for the elite athletes involved like Gordon Ryan, Craig Jones, Nicky Rodriguez, Ethan Crelinsten, and Gordon’s younger brother Nicky. Since then, Gordon Ryan has announced that he will be making the move to Austin, Texas in order to open the very first gym in his own name there. He stated that his doors were open to any of his former teammates who wanted to move with him, although he stopped short of naming anyone who would be joining him.
Now, Craig Jones has made an announcement in a post to his official Instagram account to confirm that he will continue to train with his main training partners in Nicky Rodriguez, Ethan Crelinsten, and Nicky Ryan. Jones didn’t make any solid statement on where he and the other three will be training but he did put the location of the post as Austin, Texas, coincidentally the exact same city that the older Ryan brother will be opening his gym in.
Putting two and two together, it seems like at least these four athletes will be joining Gordon Ryan’s new team. As it stands, there’s no news on where John Danaher himself will actually be going and there’s several elite competitors who are still left unaccounted for like Garry Tonon, Robert Degle, Oliver Taza, and Nick Ronan.
