Daniel Bryan Says He Has No Interest In Being Rich and Famous, Talks Indies and More

– The Brisbane Times published an interview with WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan. Here are some highlights:

Differences between working for WWE and the independent circuit: “Wrestling-wise, there’s a huge difference. You see me on the television, that can be under 10 minutes … on the independent circuit the longest match I ever did was, I think, 76 minutes.”

What’s independent in his heart: “Think how you want. Create how you want. I love wrestling because it’s an act of creativity, despite that you’re on TV and work for this massive corporation. Nobody’s telling me exactly how to wrestle … sometimes they’ll tell me, ‘You shouldn’t do this’, then the fire inside me … I know wrestling isn’t exactly changing the world, but it’s a small act of defiance.

“I have no interest in being rich. I have no interest in being famous. Everything in the media is telling you, ‘Buy, buy, buy.’ I don’t want to buy anything. Once your needs are met, then you don’t need anything else.”

    To be fair John Cena’s a pretty genuine dude even if he’s not the best wrestler.

  • and Brie has class for dating him, shows that she has a genuine heart too because she could have had anyone, yet she chose Bryan as her life partner..and he’s not the most bulky, rich or good looking guy, but she chose personality..she dated him before he got super popular. Unlike Nikki who only dates the chiseled guys like Ziggler and now Cena……

  • Bryan makes 620,000 a year..he has tons of money….On Total Divas, when Nikki was unimpressed with his house, that totally was uncalled for. He doesn’t like buying stuff, he wants to live and raise his family with Brie inside of his childhood home..he saves money that way…If he continues to save his money he’ll be wealthy for a long time..you don’t need a mansion and fancy cars to be happy..that’s just a waste….Nikki Bella is a gold digger, Brie is classy and accepted it, but Nikki made her think she was making a mistake..such a shame…..Bryan will end up super rich real soon though, because the fans love him and he makes money for the WWE and he’ll be champ…so he’ll get the private jets and mansions like Cena, but will he want them? that’s the question!

    You better have that money for your Bella there Fella.

  • He was saying that just because he makes a lot of money with WWE, he doesn’t need to go out and buy a lot of “Stuff”. Too many people who get “rich” try to LIVE “rich”, and that’s why people like Hogan and Flair go broke.

    Anyone who has met Bryan will tell you he’s a genuinelly nice guy, A friend of mine who reffed one of his matches a couple years back used to E-mail him about vegan diets and even when he got signed he still tried to find the time to help him out.
