Bryan Danielson spoke with Uproxx before facing MJF for the AEW World Title in a 60-minute Iron Man battle tonight at AEW Revolution.


The AEW athlete, known in the WWE as Daniel Bryan, later revealed how WWE management felt about him when he won the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania XXX. He stated:

“After WrestleMania 30, when I had won the championship and just main evented WrestleMania, they had a meeting with me where it was like, ‘Okay, what we’d really like is to do is to set this other guy up to be the guy.’ I think the phrase was the next John Cena. And I was like, ‘I would like to be the next John Cena,’ (and they said) nobody can be John Cena.”

Danielson continued ….

“I literally just main evented WrestleMania, and you’re already telling me directly — and I actually appreciated that — that you don’t see me as the guy. That’s good for me because (I knew) this is what I have to overcome if I want to be that. I never got there in WWE as far as being the company’s guy.”
