Daniel Bryan On WWE Pitching Him Roles While He's Out, Advice For Cesaro And Seth Rollins, His Style

As noted, Daniel Bryan is currently on a promotional tour in Asia. Bryan told The New Paper in Singapore this week that his WWE career may be over. Bryan also recently visited Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, and spoke to PassThePopcorn.My. Below are a few highlights from the interview.

If he would change his wrestling style if he were to return to action:

"My wife would like me to! She'd like me to take fewer risks. But here's the problem with that I'm the underdog. I'm not six feet tall; I'm five foot eight and one hundred eighty five pounds, so I am going to get thrown around. I've been trying to come up with some ideas and stuff, but that's the style of wrestling I enjoy doing. I like flying around but yeah, I'm going to have to do some things to limit the injuries I think."

WWE pitching him other roles while he's out of action:

"They [WWE] asked me a bunch of stuff of what I'd like to do like announce or be a trainer at NXT. I'm sure at some point in my life I would, but right now it would be too soon."

Advice for Cesaro and Seth Rollins:

"I would say just make sure to be healthy when you come back and don't rush it. But man, Cesaro, I've known him for years and this is his first major injury. For a guy who's been wrestling that long, that's pretty incredible. Rollins had neck surgery when he was on the independents but other than that he's been relatively injury free. He and Cesaro are the two guys who actually wrestled more matches than anybody in the WWE. I mean in 2013, the year before my neck surgery, I wrestled more matches than anybody on the roster by a long shot. I did 227 matches that year and that what happens when you're one of the work horses and are out there doing all those matches, you're bound to get injured."

Bryan also talked about Brock Lesnar being his dream opponent, TLC, NXT, his Tough Enough experience, where he fits in if he were to return to action and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
