While Daniel Bryan cannot entertain WWE fans with his in-ring performances anymore, his role as a host on the WWE Network exclusive post-SmackDown Live show, Talking Smack, has yielded its share of entertaining moments.
In a recent appearance on Sam Roberts' Wrestling Podcast, Bryan spoke about his role on the show, which he claims is meant to help talent express themselves.
"My thing with Talking Smack is [that] I want our talent to look really good," Bryan said.
"The show is not about Renee [Young] and I, we're just hosts but we're there to bring stuff out of people...to help them," he said.
Bryan specifically mentioned Baron Corbin, who won the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at Wrestlemania 32 and is a rising star on SmackDown Live. He made an appearance on Talking Smack in October and cut the "promo of his life" according to Bryan and others.
"Part of our job -- and this is something I'm really trying to learn -- is bringing stuff out of it, but then leaving it on these guys," Bryan said. "Leaving it on Baron Corbin, don't try to one-up him.
"He says something, and then challenge him a little bit...but then, man, he has a really good point and just leave it like that."
Bryan also had a memorable segment with The Miz, where both men took personal shots at each other many couldn't differentiate between fact and fiction. However, as Bryan mentioned, removing himself and enhancing other talents' performance is his goal as the host.
