A few excerpts from an interview DirecTV did with WWE superstar Daniel Bryan:

Q: Who would you say has given you your best matches in WWE?
DB: I’ve had some really great matches with CM Punk and I’ve had some really fun, physical, brutal matches with Sheamus. I’ve also really enjoyed wrestling The Shield.

Q: You and CM Punk first met in your early indie wrestling days, correct?
DB: Yeah, It was 2003 or 2004. I wrestled CM Punk for 45 minutes in front of 30 people in Florida. We’ve known each other a long time.

Q: Can you talk a bit more about your relationship?
DB: It’s interesting because CM Punk and I have a lot in common personally, yet we are very different. He is very brash and kind of says whatever he feels. I’m more laid back and not the most outgoing person. But we have a certain respect for each other. I have been on shows that Punk drove 14 or 15 hours for from Chicago to get paid 100 bucks. We’ve done those shows in front of 30 people together. It’s a long road for guys like us to get here. I’m always astounded. There was that December PPV when I had cashed in my Money in the Bank contract to beat Big Show for the World Heavyweight Championship and Punk had retained his WWE title that same night. We used to work on the indies together and then there we were, both champions. No one really thought we could do it. It’s very cool and surreal.

Q: Who were your idols coming up?
DB: I loved Dean Melenko and Eddie Guererro. Bret Hart was always one of my favorites. I’m also a big Seahawks fan and the guy who I really loved was a wide receiver named Steve Largent, who ended up being a politician in Oklahoma. He was always so respectable and was never about himself, he was about the team. A lot of people like the brash players but I like people who focus on the team and downplay what they do.

    Steve Largent, true Seahawk legend. The Seahawks should ask Daniel Bryan to raise the 12th man flag this season!

  2. Ray Jackson says:

    YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! I TOO hinted the exact same thing, I TOO, want to see Paul Allen and the Seahawks invite soon-to-be WWE Champion (in about less than an hour from now after he beats Randy Orton and sticks it to both Triple H and The Shield!!!) and Aberdeen’s own Daniel Bryan to the CLink (our name for CenturyLink Field) to hoist The 12 Man flag at a future Seahawk home game (especially at a home playoff game) so that OVER 67,000 12th Men strong can all join in and go “YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!……………….”

    Ray, what you just said is EXACTLY why I want a WrestleMania the Clink with Danielson main-eventing that show. Danielson headining the biggest show ever in his home state? Check. A venue that is designed to ricochet crowd noise? Check. An event that will have the most passionate fans from all over the world in such a venue? Check. This would be more epic than the Rock headlining WrestleMania in Miami.
