• Daniel Bryan Says He Wasn’t Needed In The WrestleMania 37 Main Event, Tried To Get Out Of It
Daniel Bryan recently main evented Night 2 of WrestleMania 37, where he unsuccessfully challenged for Roman Reigns’ Universal Championship in a Triple Threat Match that also involved Edge.
During a recent interview with BT Sport, Bryan noted that he wasn’t needed in this match and that it should’ve stayed a singles match between Reigns & Edge.
Here’s what Bryan said:
“I don’t know. I kept trying to get out of it to. I was like, ‘This is a heck of a story. 10 years to the day that he was forced to retire.’
Gosh, it was shortly after Elimination Chamber and in the build-up to the singles match I had with Roman at Fastlane. I was like, this is going to be a stick Daniel Bryan in here thing.
Not to say that I didn’t want to be a part of it, but I just thought it was such a strong main event just the two of them. Everybody has their thing.
The weird thing is WrestleMania 30 felt like it was going to be Batista and Randy [Orton], and it felt like with the way that the crowd was reacting to Batista and Randy, it kind of needed me in there.
This one didn’t feel like it needed me, but it’s all water under the bridge now. Maybe that’s part of the thing is this constant thing in the back of my mind being like, ‘Hey, I’m not sure I should be in this match’ is one of the reasons why I had that weird reaction to actually being out there on WrestleMania.
I would say it to [people backstage], and I don’t know if they were just being polite, or if they were just like, ‘Hey, this is what we’re doing regardless of whether we agree with it or not.’”
