Bryan Danielson On How He Told The WWE That Their Booking Of The 2015 Royal Rumble Match Was A Bad Idea

Top AEW Star Bryan Danielson recently appeared on an episode of Renee Paquette’s The Sessions to talk about a variety of topics such as how he knew that the booking of the 2015 Royal Rumble Matchup was a bad idea when the WWE told him about it and how he instantly told the WWE that it was a bad idea.

Bryan Danielson said:

“I knew (it was a bad idea), and especially because I had just come back from neck surgery. When they told me what I was doing in the Rumble in 2015 and that I was only going to be in there for four or five minutes, I told them, ‘I think this is a bad idea.”

Bryan Danielson also spoke about how the booking wasn't necessarily great for Roman Reigns and how he has done a great job since then and how he is now the biggest star in wrestling.

Bryan Danielson said:

“This isn’t necessarily great for Roman.’ They kind of ignored that. Then it wasn’t. Stuff happened. That was that. All of that to say, Roman has done such a great job and now he’s the biggest star in wrestling. He’s performed at such a high level for a long time and he’s done such a great job.”
