Triple H talks putting over Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 30, compares Bryan to Shawn Michaels
Part two of Jonathan Snowden's exclusive look at last year's WrestleMania is now up at The Bleacher Report. In the article, Triple H and Daniel Bryan discussed the lead up to, and execution of, their great match at WrestleMania 30. Triple H noted that he trained twice a day in preparation for the match because of the pressure when you haven't been wrestling regularly.
"It's full on, twice a day," Triple H noted. "I've got to get in shape because I know Daniel Bryan is one of the best guys in the world. And I've got to hang with him. I've got to be in there and do my part. We've told this massive story, and it all hinges on delivering. So I've got to go out there in that first match at WrestleMania and I've got to kill it and put him on that platform."
Triple H and Bryan also both talked about blending their styles for the match, including The Game chain wrestling and using the Tiger Suplex.
"I can chain wrestle. I can do all that other stuff. I just don't do it," Triple H said. "It's about doing them at the right moment, safely, with a guy you can do them with. And Daniel's a guy you can do just about anything with. He's a little bit like Shawn [Michaels] in that you can do anything with him. So pulling that out of the bag was something I could do."
Triple H noted that Bryan's entrance with the crowd doing the "Yes!" chant was a blowaway moment for him. He also said that he got "chillbumps" with how the storyline paid off for Bryan.
"I lean over to Steph, and I said, 'Look at that.' What a story. And even just thinking about it now, I get chillbumps," Triple H stated. "To be able to take that 10-month arc of a story and have it pay off for Daniel Bryan? who on every level is just the nicest guy and a guy you just want to help succeed? for every reason you just want him to be big, and then here it is. And man, it's huge. And you're just like, 'Yeah!'"
