Daniel Bryan was a main focus of the premiere of NXT and WWE.com has posted a new interview which is a blend of real and storyline comments:
on The Miz:
Right, he has his own skill-set and thereâ€™s definitely something to be learned from that. The only negative is how antagonistic he is about how good he is at it.
on working wit Chris Jericho:
I was super excited to be in the ring with Jericho, because he was one of my favorites when I was in high school. He came into WCW probably 1996, 97ish and he was the guy on TV who was never given that great opportunity to be with the main-eventers, but he was always the most entertaining guy on the show. It was awesome, and then his ring-work of course is impeccable. He was one of the first guys who showed, him and Eddie both, were some of the first guys that showed that smaller guys can not only be great in the ring but charismatic on the microphone as well. They were pushing the cruiserweights, and as a cruiserweight he was so good at antagonizing people and that sort of thing. And then he comes into WWE with the Y2J thing and heâ€™s been phenomenal ever since. Heâ€™s one of those guys who as a smaller guy, I look up to and say “Iâ€™d like to be as good as that.” So getting into the ring with him was a dream come true.
working with Rey Mysterio, Shawn Michaels, CM Punk
Thereâ€™s so many guys that Iâ€™d love to be in the ring with. I would love to be in the ring with Rey Mysterio. I have a very similar style to William Regalâ€™s, so to compete against him would be incredible. I was trained by Shawn Michaelsâ€¦my god, the opportunity to get in the ring with Shawn Michaels. Then there are younger guys too. Iâ€™ve wrestled CM Punk on the independent scene countless times, and so getting to do that on a major stage like WWE would be so cool. I think for our hardcore fans that would be awesome – a lot of them would love to see that. So thereâ€™s a ton of guys up at WWE that Iâ€™d love to get in the ring with.
