  • Daniel Bryan Speaks on WWE Return, The Miz as Pro & More

    Posted on January 7th, 2011 admin 1 comment

    WWE star Daniel Bryan recently did an interview for SLAM! Wrestling. Below are a couple excerpts:

    -On his WWE return: “When they [WWE] called me to bring me back, John Laurenitis, the head of talent relations, was adamant that I try to keep as many of my independent bookings as I could. That kind of took me by surprise. It was really cool because I owe a lot to my independent fans and the promoters who booked me, so it was really cool for them to react that way.”

    -On having The Miz as his NXT pro: “I was actually hoping for a little bit of mentoring from him,” Bryan told SLAM! Wrestling in an October 2010 interview, prior to coming to Winnipeg for a WWE house show. “People might be shocked by that, but my weaknesses are his strengths and his weaknesses are my strengths. My weakness has always been that you don’t look at me and say, ‘Oh that guy’s a WWE superstar,’ whereas The Miz carries himself like a superstar and he believes he’s a superstar, whereas I don’t think I’m better than my neighbour.”

    The following is a new blog posted by the recently returned WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan, aka Bryan Danielson:

    Many Thanks, SummerSlam and Submissions!

    Wow, these last couple months have been one giant rollercoaster ride. First off, I’d like to thank all of the people who have supported me since I left the WWE two months ago. You guys have been great and have come out in droves to the independent shows. You’ve been nothing but awesome and I appreciate it. And even though I will only be able to do a couple more independents before I start full time with WWE, I urge anyone who loves wrestling to continue to seek out independent shows in your area. My goal when I left WWE was to bring new fans to the independent scene, where you not only get a unique intimate experience, but you also get to see the superstars of the future. Guys like Evan Bourne, C.M. Punk, Kaval and I all honed our skills in the underground wrestling scene, as well as internationally. Two shows I’d especially like to encourage local fans to go to would be the New York Wrestling Connection (www.nycwrestling.com) show in Deer Park, NY on August 28th, and the Millenium Wrestling Federation (www.bostonwrestling.com) show on September 18th in Melrose, MA. I am no longer able to appear on those shows and both promotions have been incredibly understanding. They both also put on incredible shows. My friend Eddie Edwards will be at the Melrose show and he’s one of the best around. You’ll also get to see John Cena’s dad, John Cena, Sr.! Go out, show your support, and I’m betting you’ll have a great time. I still have a couple more independent shows so check my website and twitter for updates.

    Even though I love the independent scene, being the surprise 7th member of Team WWE at SummerSlam was by far the biggest opportunity of my career. Coming out in the Staples Center and walking past The Miz to go fight with Nexus was an amazing experience and something I’ll never forget. And though I always feel I can do better, I was thrilled to be able to tap out two Nexus members before I was eliminated.

    But speaking of the submission I used at SummerSlam, on the WWE Universe Facebook page they are asking for ideas as to what to call it. Its actually an omoplata with a crossface, but I’ve mostly just called it the LeBell Lock. Neil Melanson, my friend and one of the best grappling coaches in the country, taught me the move and he learned it from the legendary “Judo” Gene LeBell. I’ve never met Mr. LeBell, but he is one of the grappling greats and if you ever get a chance to pick up his autobiography its a fascinating read. That said, I’d prefer to just keep calling it the Lebell Lock, as I like the link to wrestling’s past… but I’m not genius at marketing so we’ll see how it goes!

    I know I still have a long way to go to reach my dream and I still have many naysayers (mainly The Miz and Michael Cole, but there are others), but I’m thankful for all of you who have had my back during an uncertain period in my life. The WWE Universe is unreal and I will work my hardest to try to entertain some of the most loyal people on the planet. See you at the arenas!

    Posted on July 9th, 2010 admin No comments

    Former WWE star Bryan Danielson has posted a new blog over at http://officialbryandanielson.blogspot.com/

    Below is an excerpt from the blog, and if you visit the above link you can read more including Danielson discussing his new T-shirts, a favorite opponent of his and more.

    “Last weekend my schedule went something like this: Depart Las Vegas at 7 am on my way to Atlanta, where I met up with TJ Perkins. Then Atlanta to Dusseldorf, arriving at 8 am German time. Drive an hour to our holding tank where I sleep from 10 am to 12 pm. Then drive from holding tank to the building, arriving sometime around 2:30 pm. Show starts around 5:30ish, so I take a nap. Wake up just in time for my first match, which is the opener. Then wrestle again in the semi-main. Then approximately 3 minutes to the hotel to shower. Then off to find food. No luck finding vegan food, so back to the hotel to eat almonds. Then back out to meet the boys at a “Beach Party.” No water, but plenty of sand. We DANCE, German style, until 3 am, then carry the drunkards back to the hotel. Then sleep. Wake up around 9 am. Try to sleep more but no luck. Leave at 12 for the arena, which is 3 minutes away. Wrestle 3 times. Shower. Drive to hotel, arriving at 7 pm. Eat. Sleep. Wake up at 1 am. Read. Leave for airport at 6:45 am. Depart Dusseldorf around 9. Arrive Atlanta, run into Chavo Guerrero. Fly back to Las Vegas, arriving at 5:45 pm. Sleep.”

  • The Miz Has Some Harsh Words For Danielson, and More…

    Posted on July 2nd, 2010 admin No comments

    WWE Superstar The Miz recently appeared at the E3 video game convention this week. Below are some excerpts from an interview Miz granted with ESPN.com while at the big convention:

    The Miz on Bryan Danielson/WWE: “He was fired. He deserved to be fired. I don’t see him on Raw, do you? I don’t see him on Smackdown, I don’t see him on NXT. He’s goner. Go back to the independents where you belong.”

    Miz on where he sees himself by WrestleMania 27: “I hope to be in the main event of Wrestlemania and wrestling for either the WWE or World Heavyweight Championship. That’s where I see myself. Will it happen? I don’t know, but that’s where I see myself, absolutely. I set goals, and I think it’s better that I want to be, not only the champion, I want to be the poster child. When you come to E3, I don’t want you to see The Undertaker or The Rock or John Cena, I want you to see my face out there in the games.”

  • Bryan Danielson Speaks About WWE Release, TNA’S Interest, and More

    Posted on June 30th, 2010 admin 90 comments

    The following is a new blog from Bryan Danielson’s official website:

    “WWE has come to terms on the release of NXT first season rookie Daniel Bryan (Bryan Danielson) as of today June 11, 2010. We wish Daniel Bryan the best in all future endeavors.”

    Posted by WWE.com

    Since this statement was released I’ve been bombarded with messages asking me if it’s real, and by now I’m sure that most people know that it is.

    WWE is very serious about adhering to their PG guidelines, and apparently my actions during the NXT attack on John Cena, namely choking announcer Justin Roberts with his tie and spitting in Cena’s face, crossed the boundaries of what is considered “PG.” Perhaps the choking was too violent or perhaps the spit was too demeaning. I apologized for both immediately following the incident; but I would be a hypocrite if I apologized for putting everything I have into the attack. I would much rather have gone too far than to come up too short.

    As with anyone who gets fired from their job, especially when they feel its unjust, I am angry. Very angry. But I can’t fault WWE for how they handled my release. My contract contained a 90 day no-compete clause in the event I was let go, yet the WWE has graciously allowed me start wrestling again on any show that’s not taped for television or pay per view.

    So with the negatives there also come positives. Before I got signed by WWE last October, I worked hard to bring new fans to independent wrestling. But with most of us having little national exposure the only thing we could do was wrestle our hearts out and hope for word of mouth. Now that I’ve appeared on WWE television in front of millions of new fans, things are different. My goal is to garner as much interest in independent wrestling over the next 90 days as I possibly can. I hope that some of the people who enjoyed watching me wrestle on TV will give independent companies such as Evolve, Dragon Gate USA and Ring of Honor a chance. I think most of you would enjoy the intimacy between the fans and the wrestlers and the intensity of the action; if you ask the fans who went to the Chikara or AIW shows I was on this weekend, I’m sure 99% of them had a great time. So if you’ve never been to an independent show, go ahead and dip your toes in… you might find that the water is pretty nice.

    As far as what happens after 90 days, nobody knows. I’ve “heard” that TNA is interested. There are petitions going around to get me back into WWE and the last several weeks there have been fans chanting my names at their shows. People have even brought signs showing their support. And though most of the signs get taken away and though WWE may not be listening to your chants or petitions, I truly appreciate all the support over the last several weeks. It is both overwhelming and heartwarming. But regardless of what offers come in, I am in no rush to make any rash decisions. I enjoy my freedom as much as I enjoyed the benefits offered by being in WWE. My future, as usual, is uncertain. But I am enjoying my return to the independents. I’m hoping to see some of you there.

    I still can’t quite figure out if this is real or just a gimmick either way it is creating alot of interest in the wrestling community.
