• Former WWE Writer Reveals What Daniel Bryan Recently Demanded
During a recent appearance on Wrasslerap, former WWE writer Kazeem Famuyide revealed what WWE Champion Daniel Bryan recently demanded.
Below is what Kazeem said:
“People would come and sit in creative sometimes. I will tell you one story. I was still pretty new.
He did it in jest, but he meant it. You know what I’m saying. We were sitting in the writers’ room. Daniel Bryan storms down the hallway and he is walking. He kicks the door open and he is like ‘HEY! We need a hot young babyface RIGHT NOW!’ and I was like ‘huh?’
He was like ‘The biggest babyface you have is pushing 40 years old. How is this going to work?’ He came in joking but he was deadass. In a roundabout way, I think that’s how we got to Mustafa Ali.
He was a pure white meat babyface on 205 Live that got real emotion that could fucking sell agony. Vince is so huge on that. ‘You got to bring him in, if he can fight from underneath, then oh god, that is such an advantage. They have to see that you are in agony and pain in the face. So when you overcome, they are with you.’
That’s the genius of Vince, he understands the dynamics of Good vs. Evil and fighting against the odds.”
