Daniel Bryan talks tough period after winning WWE title, WWE in Singapore
- Daniel Bryan recently spoke with FOX Sports about WrestleMania 31 and Connor Michalek receiving the first-ever Warrior Award at the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. During the interview, Bryan talked about winning the title at WrestleMania 30 and the emotional roller coaster that followed.
"Within the span of two weeks, I had a professional high," Bryan said. "Then I had a high point of my personal life, getting married, and then the day after we came back from our honeymoon my Dad dies. That happened on a Monday. Then that Wednesday Connor dies. All of a sudden this is a personal low point in my life. A month later they tell me I need surgery, so now I am ?t a professional low point.
"The hard part about the professional low point and personal low point coming at the same time is that wrestling is always how I've dealt with personal issues. People think what we do is entertainment but this is how I express myself. To not be able to do that while going through this personal loss is very difficult."
- As we noted last year, ESPN was at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando and the NXT TV tapings at Full Sail University early last year filming for a feature on their E:60 program. Jim Ross stated last year on ESPN's Front Row that the producers of the show were "allowed crazy access," and that he expects a masterpiece. The show will air on ESPN2 next Tuesday, March 24th.
- WWE will return to Singapore on Thursday, July 2nd for a live event at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Tickets go on sale next Thursday at 9am at Sports Hub Tix.
Update 12:45 PM ET: Fixed an earlier version of the article to note that E:60 would be airing on ESPN2, not ESPN as previously stated.
