Bryan Danielson Reveals Some Great Advice John Cena Gave Him

Bryan Danielson has spent a lot of time with John Cena in and out of the ring over the last several years.

All Elite Wrestling‘s Bryan Danielson recently sat down with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated. When asked about Wheeler Yuta previously being part of Best Friends before joining Blackpool Combat Club, Danielson spoke about a good piece of advice that John Cena gave him.

“The idea of Wheeler being with the Best Friends before, and now being with us, that makes us seem different,” Bryan Danielson said. “The idea is, when you join us, you can’t be that anymore. That kind of stuff is cool. I tried to get that across in one of my nights on commentary when Mox, Claudio, and Wheeler were wrestling The Best Friends and Rocky [on Dynamite in June]. My point was, those are the guys Okada hangs out with. Look at the guys I hang out with. That tells you so much.

“It was actually John Cena who I first heard say this–you become the five people you spend the most time around. So who do you want to become? The guys taking everything lightly? Or the guys, from a storyline perspective, taking this seriously and working to become the best? My real-life perspective is that wrestling can be a variety show. If everything was dead serious, I don’t think people would like it as much. And I’ve done a lot of comedy in my career. But that’s not the ethos right now of the BCC.”
