• Reason Behind WWE Dropping Daniel Bryan’s 2019 Gimmick

During a recent interview with My San Antonio, SmackDown Superstar Daniel Bryan talked about his environmental guy gimmick from 2019 and why he had to drop it.

Below is what Bryan said:

“When I was doing the environmental thing, they actually told me to stop talking about the environment because they told me it was a political issue and we don’t want to deal with politics.

I said, ‘It’s not a political issue. It’s a scientific issue, and the sciences pretty much prove it.’

So rather than looking at it from a right or left point of view, let’s look at it as, ‘Hey, improving the environment is a bulletproof idea to improve all of our children’s lives.’

And I think that’s also something that people can get behind, too. But how you do that in a wrestling format? I have no idea.”
