More on Jericho Being Contacted for WM 34; Daniel Bryan Wasn't Told of Backup Plans

-- As noted earlier, Daniel Bryan was a guest on Talk is Jericho and discussed his match at WrestleMania 34 where he teamed up with Shane McMahon to take on Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens. Chris Jericho was considered as a backup in case Shane was unable to wrestle and it was also revealed that WWE kept those plans tightly guarded, not even letting Bryan know.

-- According to Bryan:

"It’s weird because we’re in this stage now where they don’t tell the boys anything. Right, so they keep all the secrets from the boys cause they’re afraid the boys are all talking to the dirt sheets and all that kind of stuff. And so I ask because Shane called me and told me. He said, ‘I’m in the hospital right now, I got diverticulitis while I was in Antigua and then when they were giving me IVs I got a staph infection from the IVs and then I have this hernia that’s coming out of my stomach. But don’t worry I’ll be ready for Mania.’ I was just like, ‘what? how?!'"

"So I was on my way to TV in the airport security when he [Shane] texted and said ‘call me’ and all that happened. Then I talked to him and he said that and when I got to TV the next day I was like, ‘what are we going to do? Like certainly he can’t be wrestling.’ And they said, ‘well, he says he’s wrestling but we have a backup and we think it’s a pretty good backup.’ I said, ‘who is it?’ And then said: ‘We can’t tell you.'"
