Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan’s best days in the light of a WWE ring could be behind him as a slew of injuries continue to keep the fan favorite warrior on the shelf. He saw the best of his career when he defeated Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton all in one night at Wrestlemania 30 in New Orleans for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
Bryan talks about that moment and the YES movement that propelled him in to the main event picture of Wrestlemania, a time where he lost his cool on WWE COO Triple H, a part in his career where WWE Chairman Vince McMahon poked fun at Daniel’s dieting choices and finally a moment where himself and his wife Brie Bella attempted to get intimate but ended in disaster.
His blowup with Triple H after a match with Randy Orton on RAW:
“Usually I don’t get super angry, and when I do it’s barely visible. This time, I was furious and I let everyone know it. When I walked through the curtain, I yelled, ‘What the f— is that all about. That’s f—ing bull—-!’ ‘You need to calm down,’ responded Triple H, who had been communicating with the doctor over the headset and called for the match to be stopped. ‘No, you need to calm the f— down,’ I replied. We were up in each other’s faces and both ready to fight.”
Vince McMahon was not happy about Bryan once being a vegan early in his WWE career:
“My first NXT match against Chris Jericho went really well and when Chris got to the back, he expressed to Vince McMahon what a great job I’d done. As Chris tells it, Vince responded almost in disgust, a grunting and then saying, ‘Him? He doesn’t even eat meat!’ ”
The first time Bryan tried to have sex with then-girlfriend, now-wife, Brie Bella, two fellow WWE superstars, Ted DiBiase Jr. and Sheamus, interrupted the moment:
“We were naked and about to do our thing when all of a sudden we heard the sound of the door handle turning and then the door popped open. Bri jumped under the covers as Teddy and Sheamus barged into the room, inebriated as can be, wit the ‘Ahhh fella!’ and all that.”
