WWE SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan did a Q&A with Yahoo Sports to promote the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view. The full interview is at this link and below are highlights:

Has traveling on the road again on a weekly basis as GM of "SmackDown" helped or hurt whatever wrestling itch you still might have?

"It's kind of hurt it. It's not the traveling part of it I was doing OK, right. I was like, OK, this isn't my jam anymore, I can't do this. Until they had me sit out by ringside for a couple of matches and it's just like, c'mon, I'm ready to go. That's the hard part. Or when I go out to the arena and get such a great reaction. That's when I want to wrestle."

Do you feel directly responsible for the number of smaller wrestlers in the main event picture?

"No, I think it was a natural evolution. I think what's happened is there's so many hours of TV that's put out there that people who are more exciting in the ring are going to be the ones that become more popular. Because of "RAW" being there hours and "SmackDown" two hours, there has to be more matches and longer matches. Smaller wrestlers are built for more exciting matches."

Bryan also discussed how the extra travelling is going over with wife Brie, calling the Cruiserweight Classic, football and more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
