During a sit-down interview with Michael Cole, SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan talked about Finn Balor’s injury, top NXT stars, Brock Lesnar’s attack on Shane McMahon & more.
Below are the highlights:
Samoa Joe & Shinsuke Nakamura Should Be On The WWE Main Roster:
“Samoe Joe should already be here. Shinsuke Nakamure should already be here. Those are guys in their primes, and their down in NXT when they should be here; either on Smackdown Live or on Raw. The longer we wait, the more bumps they take, the more bruises they get and the more susceptible they are to injury. Everyone knows there’s a finite amount of hits you can take in your career, and you don’t know what that number is, and the more times you take those hits down in NXT the less hits you’re going to be able to take while you’re here.”
On His Dream Match Being Against Brock Lesnar:
“I wish I was cleared. My dream match was always against Brock Lesnar. One of the things that appealed to me about the fans is that I’ve always been an underdog. And what bigger underdog match is there than Brock Lesnar vs. Daniel Bryan. That’s like David vs. Goliath. He’s never fought someone like me. I was working on this new style, before they told me I couldn’t wrestle anymore, that’s really unlike anything else, just in the way that I move.”
