• “He’s not AJ Styles by any means” – Ric Flair On Bryan Danielson’s Work

During a recent episode of his podcast, 2-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair was asked what he thinks about Bryan Danielson’s work.

Flair said his work is ‘okay’ and that Triple H ‘made him’ by losing to him at WrestleMania 30.

Here’s what The Nature Boy said:

“I didn’t say he wasn’t a good worker. When Hunter put him over at [WrestleMania 30 in 2014], that made him. He’s a very talented kid, don’t misunderstand me, but you have to have one match, one place, one day, somewhere that makes you who you are. Hunter, who only wrestles once in a while, came out and the match started off slow but they ended up having a world-class match.

He’s a hell of a performer, I don’t see him as being Kenny Omega. As a babyface, he’s not Ricky Steamboat. As a heel, he’s not me. If that pisses people off, they have to live with history.

[Triple H & Daniel Bryan] tore the joint down. That is the night that made Bryan. I like him a lot personally. He’s got a style…he’s not AJ Styles by any means. He’s a little bit smaller than AJ. He’s not AJ Styles. I like his conditioning, he works hard, he’ll do anything and sacrifice his body at all odds. He’ll throw himself around and take incredible bumps. He’s a hell of a hand.

You’re asking me who is good and who is great. He’s very good. As a babyface, it’s more believable. He can sell his a$$ off so when he’s making a comeback, it’s more fun to watch him make a comeback against bigger guys. It’s harder for me to believe he’s going to hold someone down.

As a babyface, who is just average size but loaded with talent, I much prefer to see him fighting from underneath.”
