USA Today's For The Win recently interviewed Daniel Bryan, who discussed WrestleMania and Connor Michalek receiving the first-ever Warrior Award at the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Below are some highlights:
If he was surprised at the negative fan reaction of him not winning The Royal Rumble:
"I wasn't really that surprised, I thought that a lot of fans wanted me to win the Royal Rumble… but it's a great story, right? The guy who has never lost a title had to lose the title because of the neck surgery, comes back and he fights the guy who's just this monster destroyer, a David versus Goliath story, and I think a lot of fans were excited by the prospect of that. And also by the prospect of a match of me versus Brock Lesnar, I feel like I do pretty good against big guys."
Balancing his own performance knowing that Brie Bella will also be in action at WrestleMania:
"Brie and I do this thing at the end of every night where we tell each other three things that made us happy each day. One of the things that makes me happiest each day is being able to watch Brie go out there and perform because she loves to do it, and she's good at it. There was a big deal, #GiveDivasAChance, and hopefully they're going to get a chance at WrestleMania this year. That's every performer's dream — not just the guys, but the girls too."
Bryan also discussed his seeds for the top wrestlers of all time, wrestling in a stadium, what winning the Intercontinental title means to him and more. You can check out the full article by clicking here.
