Retired WWE Wrestler Wants To Face AJ Styles

During a recent appearance at the Play Fair Toy Convention in New York City, retired WWE wrestler Daniel Bryan answered some fan questions. Below are the highlights:

On his favorite match:

“It was when my wife wrestled Stephanie McMahon at SummerSlam. Seeing someone you love accomplish something so awesome really made me proud for her and warmed my heart.”

On who is the best main roster prospect from NXT:

“It’s hard to pick one person, but I really like Drew McIntyre. Drew was let go by WWE, but he went out on his own and made a name for himself by wrestling his butt off all over the world.”

On who he wants to face in WWE:

“One of my favorite guys to watch at WWE is AJ Styles. So, on the WWE stage, I would like to wrestle AJ Styles, only because I wrestled John Cena before.”
