Daniel Bryan will be stellar again at WrestleMania 37 in what will be the main event in a triple threat match against Roman Reigns and Edge for the WWE Universal title. The wrestler chatted exclusively with ESPN.com And the tough confrontation he will have on April 11 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida is already throbbing.
“I’m excited, honored that that’s going to happen. I didn’t know if I was going to be able to be stellar again at WrestleMania after the main event at WrestleMania 30. It’s great, but at the same time I have this weird guilt deep down. I think Edge and Roman alone would have been great too. I am super excited for the fight, I think it will be a lot of fun and it is incredible, “said the fighter about the central combat of the event.
When asked about health problems, both he, Edge and Roman Reings went through, he remarked: “We all had different things, things that we had to fight to get back. And The idea that I could fight again, that Edge could fight again, and Roman could fight again after leukemia, I think that’s empowering you for a lot of people. It’s what John Cena says, never give up and that’s a powerful message for everyone. “

On what fans can expect from the WWE Universal title match, he noted: “I don’t know, they keep hitting me with chairs! I don’t want to get hit by chairs again but I have a feeling it’s going to be something with chairs hitting me. The wild thing about a triple threat match is that there are no disqualifications, no outside accounts, nothing like that, so you never know what’s going to happen. Triple threat matches are usually wild, but if you put a triple threat match in the main event at WrestleMania, it’s guaranteed to be wild.“.
Regarding the return of the public in the arenas and the possible advantage that their reaction gives in the fight, he commented: “I do not know, I think that one of the things in which I have an advantage is that there are many ‘Yes’ and that gives you a strange energy. It’s as if everything comes out through my body and sometimes I feel like I’m leaving my body and I’m looking at everything, it’s something very bizarre. I think so, with the fans there I have the advantage. Although, it will be interesting because we don’t know how people are going to react to Roman Reigns, we don’t know how people are going to react to Edge, we haven’t had fans. Maybe the fans are just happy to be there. I’m really looking forward to that moment“.
Daniel Bryan revealed that he did not enjoy being the General Manager of SmackDown: “It was too soon after I was forced to retire”
The leader of the ‘Movement of the Si’ stressed that a match between Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles awakened the desire to return to the fight: “That was the moment I clicked.”
Meanwhile, WWE superstars were a year without competing with the public present for the pandemic and on that situation he was forceful: “It’s interesting because I loved it. I love great news and I think it was a great revealing of your fighting ability. If you can go out there, no people, no noise, go out there and bang like crazy, go after them, I think that’s cool.. I fought in front of fewer people than the people I fought during the pandemic. I’ve fought in front of eight people or things like that. There is no one in the stands during the shows, but at least there are production and staff people. Fighting in front of eight fans is totally different, I really enjoyed it, it was a very fun challenge“.
Daniel Bryan was forceful about his future and remarked that he did not enjoy WrestleMania 30
“There was a lot of tragedy involved in WrestleMania 30, it was not all joy,” said the wrestler and gave Mexican fighters Negro Casas and Blue Panther as examples of what can happen with their “retirement.”
