Popular WWE Superstar, Daniel Bryan recently revealed that he tried getting out of the WrestleMania 37 main event. He spoke about this during his interview with BT Sport. Bryan competed for the WWE Universal Title at WrestleMania 37.
He faced Edge and Roman Reigns in a Triple Threat match. However, he did not emerge victoriously. Many people also believe that WrestleMania 37 could probably be Bryan’s last WrestleMania event and he hinted at that during previous interviews.
Daniel Bryan on Wanting to Be Out of WrestleMania 37's Main Event
“I don’t know. I kept trying to get out of it too,” Bryan laughingly said. “I was like, ‘This is a heck of a story. 10 years to the day that he was forced to retire.’ Gosh, it was shortly after Elimination Chamber and in the build-up, to the singles match, I had with Roman at Fastlane.
I was like, this is going to be a stick, Daniel Bryan, in here thing. Not to say that I didn’t want to be a part of it, but I just thought it was such a strong main event just the two of them. Everybody has their thing.
“The weird thing is WrestleMania 30 felt like it was going to be Batista and Randy [Orton], and it felt like with the way that the crowd was reacting to Batista and Randy, it kind of needed me in there. This one didn’t feel like it needed me, but it’s all water under the bridge now.
Maybe that’s part of the thing is this constant thing in the back of my mind being like, ‘Hey, I’m not sure I should be in this match’ is one of the reasons why I had that weird reaction to actually being out there on WrestleMania.
I would say it to [people backstage], and I don’t know if they were just being polite, or if they were just like, ‘Hey, this is what we’re doing regardless of whether we agree with it or not.' ” He also spoke about his entrance gear compared to Roman Reigns and Edge.
“It’s an interesting dichotomy between the differences between the three of us. If I could get away with just coming out and looking jacked like Roman, I would do that,” Daniel Bryan admitted. “Because I’m not jacked, I feel like I have to wear something.
Every week I wear the t-shirt, so maybe this week, I’ll wear the hoodie, and Edge has his big jacket and all that kind of stuff, but it was really weird because as I came out, I just really wanted to savor the experience because it might be my last WrestleMania. So I just wanted to try to enjoy it”.
