Daniel Bryan suggested letting WWE esaro and Otis wrestle in NJPW and other promotions in a new Barstool Sports interview, and said he has brought up the idea to WWE management. Daniel Bryan ‘To Retire’ On WWE Raw?
“I brought it up to a lot of people. I don’t think [a hair vs. hair match in Mexico] would happen. I also think that now, more than ever, it a time when people are open to new ideas,” said Bryan. “I think I have made some headway.
Whether any of it actually happens, who knows. I don’t think people truly understand how great a lot of WWE superstars are because we don’t necessarily put on a pure wrestling product, we put on a sports entertainment product. If all of a sudden you saw Cesaro in New Japan, people would be like, ‘This guy is the greatest.’ If you put Otis in New Japan, people would be like, ‘Holy cow, this guy is amazing.’ Like, Vader from the 90s type vibe.
It’s just a different presentation. I think it would be a cool and unique contribution in wrestling, as far as giving back. I also think it’d be good for WWE and wrestling in general for them to go and learn at other places. I wouldn’t be the performer that I am today if I hadn’t wrestled in Japan or the UK, where it was all comedy. All of those things add to your depth and when it’s time to put you in a top position, you can do a number of things.” Fightful transcribed his remarks.
