Daniel Bryan: “That was the Night I Nearly Killed Shawn Michaels.”

Sep 23, 2012 - by Michael Riba

WWE.com has published a new article taking a look at the training of various superstars. One half of the WWE Tag Team Champions (or, the only Tag Team Champion, if you will) Daniel Bryan is featured in the article and relates the following story about training with Shawn Michaels:

“One night I nearly killed Shawn Michaels. This was before his return from his back injury. I was trying to do a thing where I’d spring off the second rope onto the top rope, spin and do a hurricanrana. Keep in mind, at the time I was 175 pounds, and that’s a lot of weight to land on somebody’s shoulders. I was trying to do it on Brian Kendrick, and it wasn’t working. We thought Brian was too small. He was probably 150 pounds at the time. Shawn watched us do it a couple of times, and he got in the ring and wanted to do it with me. I go to do the hurricanrana, land on him and he ends up landing right on his head and rolls right out of the ring. We all freaked out. That was the night I nearly killed Shawn Michaels.”
