Daniel Bryan On WWE Pitching Him Non-Wrestling Roles, Offers Advice To Cesaro And Seth Rollins, Changing His Style Of Wrestling

Sidelined WWE star Daniel Bryan is currently on a promotional tour in Asia and spoke with PassThePopcorm.MY. Here are some highlights:

On if he would he change his wrestling style if he ever returns to the ring?:

“My wife would like me to! She’d like me to take fewer risks. But here’s the problem with that – I’m the underdog. I’m not six feet tall; I’m five foot eight and one hundred eighty five pounds, so I am going to get thrown around. I’ve been trying to come up with some ideas and stuff, but that’s the style of wrestling I enjoy doing. I like flying around but yeah, I’m going to have to do some things to limit the injuries I think.”

On WWE pitching him non-wrestling roles while he has been out of action:

“They [WWE] asked me a bunch of stuff of what I’d like to do like announce or be a trainer at NXT. I’m sure at some point in my life I would, but right now it would be too soon.”

Advice for Cesaro and Seth Rollins:

“I would say just make sure to be healthy when you come back and don’t rush it. But man, Cesaro, I’ve known him for years and this is his first major injury. For a guy who’s been wrestling that long, that’s pretty incredible. Rollins had neck surgery when he was on the independents but other than that he’s been relatively injury free. He and Cesaro are the two guys who actually wrestled more matches than anybody in the WWE. I mean in 2013, the year before my neck surgery, I wrestled more matches than anybody on the roster by a long shot. I did 227 matches that year and that what happens when you’re one of the work horses and are out there doing all those matches, you’re bound to get injured.”
