While Bryan teams up with CM Punk tomorrow at the Garden against the diabolical Wyatt Family, he will be wrestling with a heavy heart. His dog, an 11-year-old yellow lab named Asparagus the Wonder Dog, died just five days ago.
“He was legitimately my best friend,” said Bryan, who admitted he is still grieving the loss. “Every title I’ve ever won, I would always take a picture with Asparagus with the title and proclaim him the champion. He was a very special dog.”
“You’ll see me bring an energy and enthusiasm when I team with Punk against the Wyatts,” promised Bryan. “It’s a very different style matchup. The Wyatts are just big wild brawlers, while we’re aerial, technical wrestlers. It’s a grudge match, and we’re not going to find out who the best wrestlers are. We’re going to find out who the best fighters are, because this is definitely going to be a fight.”
