Former WWE star Daniel Bryan who is currently going by the name of Bryan Danielson at the AEW recently spoke about his former boss Vince McMahon. He said he had an excellent relationship with him but he was overprotective.
Bryan Danielson had been one of the biggest names in WWE and he was a top baby face of the promotion. Nobody expected WWE would let him go so easily. A lot of professional wrestling legends, critics and fans criticized WWE for letting Bryan go since he was the top babyface of the promotion. And if WWE is lacking in something that is building a top babyface for the promotion.
Bryan Danielson Says Vince McMahon Is Overprotective
After Bryan left WWE is struggling badly to build a concrete babyface for either of their main roster shows. For both shows they had to bring back part time wrestlers so that they could feature as the babyface number one contender for both world championships. Right now they are trying to build new faces, but it does not seem like they would be able to build someone like Bryan so easily.
Bryan made his AEW debut at the latest AEW pay per view event which was All Out. It was one star-studded show. There were more debuts of former WWE stars like Adam Cole and Ruby Riott aka Ruby Soho. Bryan would be feuding for the AEW World title against Kenny Omega as it stood.
Bryan Danielson who is a former five times WWE world champion recently participated in the post-show media scrum where he said he had an excellent relationship with him but he was over protective. He said;
“So that was when I really started kind of thinking about my contract coming up. But the final decision, honestly, was just like, I started thinking about things — WWE was so gracious with me as far as the offer that they gave me.
“They were gonna let me go do some other stuff on the outside, but, I hate to say this, Vince sometimes — He and I have a great relationship. I love him, I do. Sometimes he’s overprotective of me.
“I want to be able to push my limits. That’s one of the things that I love about this, is like the physicality of what we do out there and being able to push my limits and being able to do that here in a safe manner is one of the things that really drew me here.”
