Daniel Bryan has made a return to wrestling following eight months out of action after surgery and multiple setbacks on a compressed nerve in his neck that had to be operated on. Well Bryan is back competing in the WWE and in his first interview since his return he has hit back at Vince McMahon.
We all remember the awful staged interview that Mr McMahon had on Stone Cold Steve Austin's Podcast that aired on the WWE Network right? Specifically the part where McMahon had a go at the wrestlers that he employs for not reaching for the "brass ring" and becoming stars, which is ludicrous seeing as he decided who becomes a star.
Well it seems that Daniel Bryan - who is wearing that brass ring and pimp slapping other WWE stars with it - had a go at McMahon, who is older than the Earth itself in his looks and his beliefs.
Bryan recalled an anecdote during an interview with Alternative Nation about a test the WWE made him undertake and how it showed how different McMahon is compared to all the young people that work in the company.
"You know it's funny, because one of the things that he had mentioned was, he said something about the Millennials not having any ambition, right. It's funny, because the WWE does this personality test with some of their more successful superstars, where they rank you on ambition... I got the lowest score for ambition that the lady had ever seen... It's funny because the lady was like, 'How on earth are you so successful given that you seem to have no ambition?'
"Our generation just wants different things than what his generation wants, and I think that’s a societal thing as well. There’s an older generation of people who say, ‘No, you guys should want this."
Brian later went on to lament the fact that the WWE has no competition like they had in the Attitude Era with WCW. He said that the only reason the company made it to such heights was because they had to come up with exciting shows and storylines or else they would become second best.
Because that level of competition doesn't exist anymore - TNA are no real rival - WWE's writers aren't pressured into being exciting every night, which is a real shame as the creative team is so much worse now than back in the glory days of the late 90's early 2000's.
