Daniel Bryan and The Miz managed to get into a bitter spat at the back end of last month in the WWE in scenes which weren’t all that scripted.
Bryan admits the incident which saw The Miz lose the plot and go on a tirade in the face of the former WWE champion, was scripted to an extent but it also saw the latter go over the line.
The Miz lost his cool when Bryan explained that he wrestled in a cowardly fashion, before the former went mental and ripped Bryan to shreds.

It’s fair to say that Bryan was hurt as a result because The Miz touched on some very sensitive subjects, such as Bryan’s poor record with injuries.
Bryan plays SmackDown’s general manager and Miz’s boss on television and admits the pair planned to get into a heated argument but they didn’t specify what they were going to talk about, with Bryan left hurt by the comments.
“Miz and I have known each other for a long time and we really know, like, how to get at each other’s nerves,” Bryan told the ESPN. “So, I brought up the idea that I thought he wrestled like a coward, and he knows I don’t like the way he wrestles. And then he called me out on something that’s very personal to me.
“He knows that that’s really pushing on a nerve. And calling me a coward for not [going to the independents] which I sometimes think of myself as a coward for not doing. It’s tough. Part of me just wanted to punch him in the face.”
