Source: Pop2It blogDaniel Bryan recently spoke with the Pop2It blog to promote SummerSlam. Here are some highlights:
If he's doing anything different to prepare for John Cena: "No, actually. One of the things that's the hardest about big matches like this is to try to not do anything differently. People often think 'Oh, I gotta amp up my training.' A lot of times that leads to injuries and the last thing you want to do is get injured right before a big match. So for me, it's just a matter of doing the same thing. More than anything else, it's just mentally preparing. With nerves and the position we're being put in, the thing that gets me more tired than anything is being nervous.
"I don't ever get tired when I'm wrestling, except for when I have a lot of nerves. I'd like to think at SummerSlam I'll be very relaxed, because these are the kinds of moments you want to be relaxed for so you can enjoy it and soak it all in and just have a great time going out there and doing what you love to do."
Being a part of Total Divas: "Okay. So, I honestly have not seen a single episode. When the first episode aired we were in Australia and when the second episode aired I was literally on a flight. When you put that together with the fact that me and Brie actually don't have cable [laughs], it's hard for me to watch the show. Evidently the reception to it has been good. As for being on the show, it's been fun but it's also hard. We don't have a lot of days off to begin with."
Which developmental talent could be the next big star: "You know, it's hard for me to say because I haven't seen all those guys. Someone I have a soft spot in my heart for is Sami Zayn. He wrestled as El Generico in the independents. In the ring he's just phenomenal. I saw a couple of his matches with Antonio Cesaro and it's some of the best wrestling this year, as far as I'm concerned, even compared to the stuff you see on WWE TV.
"If he can get the personality to match his wrestling skills, I haven't seen any of his interviews, but he has loads of personality as a human being and I can only imagine if he's able to transfer that onto television he should be a big star, I'd hope. But you never know, because size might hold him back for a little bit, but talent always shines through."
Daniel Bryan also talks about size vs. talent, Brie Bella's portrayal on Total Divas, his popularity, which other SummerSlam bout he is looking forward to and more. You can read the full interview at this link.
