Daniel Bryan talks about his Royal Rumble appearance advertised ahead of time and more
Scott Fishman of The Miami Herald recently interviewed Daniel Bryan, who was promoting his return to in-ring action on tonight's episode of WWE SmackDown. Below are a couple of highlights:
When he was cleared:
“The day I announced I was coming back for the Royal Rumble is actually the day I got cleared to wrestle. I started healing in November, as far as thinking, 'Wait a second. Things are starting to turn around for the better.' It was that December episode of Raw I went on to say I was finally able to be cleared by WWE where they said, 'You're ready to go.'”
His Royal Rumble appearance being advertised ahead of time:
“Had I just come out during the Royal Rumble, I don't know if it would be as impactful. To me it's more impactful to give fans something to look forward to. If it happened at the Royal Rumble and that night, it would have been great. Though I like the idea of building toward something, so I'm happy with the way we've done it.”
Bryan also discussed WrestleMania XXX, WWE officials being concerned with some of his high-risk moves, asking to wrestle on tonight's SmackDown and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
