Daniel Bryan was interviewed by RVAMag.com. Here are some highlights.
The Shield: “I think The Shield has done a fantastic job. It’s very difficult to come into the WWE, be put in the main spot, and to hold up your end of the deal. Those guys really have. I think it’s because Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins spent years in the indies before getting here. Then Roman Reigns, who had very limited experience before coming to WWE, has really stepped up and done a great job. I have nothing but respect for those guys and they’ve done amazingly so far. More than half the time, they go out there and steal the show.”
No longer riding with Ryback: “Actually, The Ryback stopped riding with me! It’s unfortunate, but I don’t think it’s because of the constant hazing I’ve given him. We had fun together and it went both ways really, but he prefers to ride by himself. He has a very specific schedule that he likes to keep. It’s hard because when you’re riding with someone, your schedules have to coincide or else it just doesn’t work. I’m somebody who likes to go to bed early and wake up early. A lot of guys like to stay up later, wake up later, and get their stuff done. Different people require different riding partners really.”
How dating Brie Bella is working out on the road: “It’s been harder, actually, now that they’ve been filming this reality show because Brie has to go do certain things for the show, you know what I mean? Before Brie came back, I’d be on the road and come back and we’d have our time at home just together just completely by ourselves before I would go back on the road. Now, it’s a little more interesting because she’s on the road sometimes with me, sometimes on a different brand or something like that, but we’ll see each other more on the road and we get less quality alone time at home. So it’s an ever-evolving situation.”
