WWE.com Furthers the Daniel Bryan/Bryan Danielson Storyline

Nick Paglino

WWE.com is furthering the Daniel Bryan/Bryan Danielson story line which began on last week’ NXT episode, by posting an article taking an in-depth look at last week’s eliminations. Below is an excerpt from the article:

"He [Danielson] told WWE.com that Daniel Bryan is a “laid back, easygoing guy” who doesn’t get mad in the ring, but has the technical skills that rival some of the greatest WWE Superstars. However, he is not a winner.

“He gets in the ring with Batista and he’s good enough technically to push him to the limits with his submission. The same thing with Chris Jericho,” he said. “But Daniel Bryan is a figment of the WWE’s imagination. Daniel Bryan has never been anywhere except WWE. Daniel Bryan has lost every match he’s ever been in.

“But Bryan Danielson is a former world Champion. Bryan Danielson is champion wherever he’s ever been. Bryan Danielson is one of the best wrestlers in the world. And he doesn’t just say that himself, people say that about him,” he said, referring to the highly-skilled, widely-respected independent wrestler.

“The real me is Bryan Danielson. I was trying to fit into what they want me to be but that’s not me. Bryan Danielson is the real me.”

While his future is uncertain, the NXT Rookie said his dream has always been to be in a main event match on the Grandest Stage of Them All."
