Daniel BryanDaniel Bryan was a guest on 98.5 SportsHub in Boston on Friday. Here are some of the highlights of his interview:

-Bryan talked about Jerry Lawler and his heart attack during his match on Raw. He said that he thought a fight broke out in the crowd, but then realized that Lawler was bent over at the announcer's table.

- Bryan credits being in the Indy scene for a decade to help him get over in the WWE now, especially since he is a smaller competitor.

-Daniel Bryan also admitted that he was fired for choking Justin Roberts with his tie because it was not "PG," in which he defended his actions. He also spoke that they were given general ideas, a "gang-like" mentality, and he was not sure what was too much to do because he was new with the company.

- Bryan also said "sports entertainment" is better than "wrestling" because people will get bored with just 8 hours of wrestling each week. He says that they need to focus on storylines and building characters, not necessarily just wrestlers.

-Daniel Bryan admitted he is no longer a vegan. It was the hardest thing to find food on the road for him to maintain that lifestyle.

- William Regal came up with Daniel Bryan, and that "Buddy Peacock" was another name talked about for him.
