And for anyone interested, here's the gist of Daniel Bryan's interview:
Daniel Bryan interview will go something like this:
- He's going to say everyone will be herded into the stadium and squeeze into these seats and cheer for AJ Styles and yet the place will be empty because those people lead empty lives like all of us.
- We try to fill the emptiness with fickle digital affirmations, cheap consumer goods and deep-fried, processed poisons. But it's never enough.
- Holds up the Chase Field Royal Rumble Burger - do you know how many animals gave their lives so that this could exist? Animals with more complex emotions than you'd ever lead. Shame. But after you've filled your bellies, you still lead empty lives.
- He then throws the burger to the ground and stomps over it.
