Daniel Bryan Talks About Being “Too Small”, His Thoughts On John Cena & More

Daniel Bryan was recently interviewed by Sky Sports to promote his upcoming WWE title match against John Cena at SummerSlam. Here are some highlights of what he said about:

What Winning The WWE Title Would Mean To Him:

“It would be incredible. That is every kid’s dream. They grow up wanting to be a WWE Superstar and to be the WWE Champion, winning it at something like SummerSlam. I grew up watching SummerSlam and some of my favourite matches ever have been on SummerSlam; Bret Hart wrestling Davey Boy Smith in ’92 and Shaun Michaels wrestling Vader in ’96. SummerSlam has been home to some of the greatest main events in WWE history and I’m looking forward to being part of that tradition.”

What He Thinks About John Cena:

“I really do respect him. We did 219 WWE live events last year and most of those are untelevised and in most of those shows when Cena is on he’s the main event. He goes out there and works his butt off and he does it against the big boys, wrestling for 20 minutes against Ryback or Mark Henry or Big Show. He goes out there night after night and has to end the show on a high note – and for the most part, every night he does it. I have a tremendous amount of respect for a guy who’s been able to do that for the last 10 years.”

Critics Saying He’s Too Small To Be WWE Champion:

“I don’t think there is a right size or a right image. I feel like if there’s somebody who captures the minds of the WWE Universe then they should be given an opportunity. I’m not saying that I’ll succeed, all I’m saying is that if you give me an opportunity to go out there and try my best and do what I do best then we’ll see what happens. I’ve never asked to be given anything, so let me go out there and prove that I belong there. I’ll go out and prove that I can do it.”
