Bryan Danielson was interviewed by Renee Paquette on Starracast last weekend. Many topics were covered, including his WWE run, AEW, Total Bellas, his legitimate issues with The Miz and more.
Danielson spoke about the real heat he had with The Miz in WWE:
“Miz was very frustrated. He was an intercontinental champion and didn’t get much on TV. I was very frustrated that they weren’t wrestling me, despite countless doctors giving me permission to wrestle and, you know, I understand why But that’s a long story anyway.”
Danielson continued: “So I got to the point of my frustration, so we came up with this thing. The original plan Mike and I came up with was for me to fuck him. We wanted to get under each other’s skin so much that it was plausible that I would be mad enough to hit him, and that was the point. The idea was whether they would fire me, or it would make people want to watch the match so much that they have to help me wrestle. But then Mike did it so wonderful, intuitive, I felt it was better to walk away, because it was also like, this is so good. Leave him with his warmth “He was so good. Mike and I don’t like each other, legitimately, but Mike is also someone I respect a lot because he worked very, very hard.”
