Though Vince McMahon’s television character is portrayed as having a strong distaste for Daniel Bryan, in reality, Vince thinks quite highly of the wrestler.
In response to a rumor on the F4WOnline.com message board concerning McMahon’s relationship with Bryan, Dave Meltzer revealed how Vince perceives Bryan. McMahon legitimately believes he taught Bryan “how to be a star,” according to Meltzer.
“Vince believes he took a guy who was very good technically but had no personality and taught him how to be a star,” wrote Meltzer. “If anything, he believes he was more right than anyone on him.”
