"As of now, I'm not in the 30-man Royal Rumble match," Bryan said, "I'm trying to get involved in it. (WWE) COO Triple H doesn't want me anywhere in the Royal Rumble match."
Daniel Bryan is scheduled to face Bray Wyatt in a rematch at the Rumble.
Also in the interview, Bryan discusses the popularity of "Yes!", WWE not necessarily wanting someone that looks like him at the top and more.
Seth Rollins Talks Rumble
As the media blitz for this Sunday's Royal Rumble event continues, The Shield's Seth Rollins talked with DigitalSpy.com about the pay-per-view. Here are a couple highlights:
On the Rumble being where The Shield start to part ways:
"I don't think so. It's every man for himself but there's 27 other guys in there that need to get out of that ring before we figure out which one of the three of us is the best. I would be worried for the 27 other dudes who are gonna be having to deal with hopefully the three of us in the ring at the same time.
No-one has gotten away from that the whole year. Not The Rock, not The Undertaker, not John Cena. When there's three of us in the ring at the same time, it's disaster for anybody else."
On Hulk Hogan possibly returning on Sunday:
"I mean hey, he's a legend, if he comes back in the WWE that'd be great for us just to have him around. He's an icon in the history of our business. But, if he steps in our way, he could end up getting triple-powerbombed too."
