“It’s hard to say one,” Bryan began.

“If I could do a match ten years from now, and this is assuming that I’m still capable of doing it and that he progresses to a level like that, one of the things that I think would be really cool — William Regal’s son, Bailey Matthews.

“He just recently started on NXT UK. For his experience level, he’s doing really well. I loved being able to wrestle William Regal the times that I did in WWE, but I’m not sure people know how much he has affected my career.

He has affected it so much. What he’s given to me and he’s never asked for anything from me. “And so, I have an infinite amount of respect for him. One of the things that would be cool is to be able to do something with his son at a huge level like that.

I wouldn’t be where I’m at without William Regal. To me, I think that’s a really cool one”. Bryan then spoke about some of the wrestlers that he believes are the best of all time. “I would say when I was in Ring of Honor in 2005, 2006, 2007, in my twenties and it’s like, yeah, these are guys who are becoming the best,” Daniel Bryan recalled.

“And Pete Dunne, when you watch him work … you can’t [deny]. You may argue that some people are better. They may be better at this, they may be better at that. When you look at him and you look at some of the other guys, who’s the best? It’s become subjective.

But, they’re in the discussion, right? And I’ve never gotten to wrestle [them]. God, how can I not wrestle the guys that might be the best! There’s also this idea that wrestling keeps evolving, right? People keep getting better and better.

And there are some people that might argue that. Like, ‘Ric Flair is the greatest of all-time’ and yeah, Ric Flair is absolutely fantastic, but wrestling is evolving and different people are doing different things”.
