– Daniel Bryan recently spoke with The Baltimore Sun to promote Sunday’s WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view. Here are a few highlights:

His 18 second loss at WrestleMania 28:
“I actually thought the people might enjoy [the quick match]. It was something really different, [to start WrestleMania like that]. The whole situation is very unusual. I’m just happy that the people have gotten behind me. It’s really incredible.”

Sunday’s match against Sheamus:
“Hopefully this [match] doesn’t end in 36 seconds. I’m hoping that we can go out there and really steal the show. That’s what I was aiming for at Wrestlemania, but it didn’t actually happen, so hopefully it turns out this Sunday. Me and Sheamus are two of the hardest-hitting guys in WWE. And I don’t think there’s anybody that can put on a match like Sheamus and I can. So we’re gonna go out there and beat each other up, and I think people are really gonna enjoy it. The crowd in Chicago should be rabid as well, so it should be a really fun show.”

Brock Lesnar’s return:
“It will be interesting to see how Extreme Rules [performs] as far as pay-per-view buys to see if that part of it is really connected with the audience. I know the reactions in the live crowd when Brock Lesnar has been there, it’s been incredible. From a performer’s standpoint, I’m very, very interested to see where it goes. It’s peaked my interest.”

    there is no way in hell he was really happy with that loss or thinking that people would actually enjoy that, unless his retarded or something. His just being a pussy company guy and acting like his ok with it.

    Like it or not, the 18 second loss at WM may have made a bigger impact on his career than winning the championship. The “Yes” chants wouldn’t have been as over, if at all, without it.
