Daniel Bryan talks WrestleMania 31, the popularity of NXT

Steve Migliore sent this in.

I just did an interview with Daniel Bryan for our station.

Here is some of stuff I thought would be of interest to you…

The Mega Cast on 99.9 KISW in Seattle spoke with Daniel Bryan. During the interview, Daniel spoke with Thee Ted Smith & Steve Migs about who he would be interested in wrestling at WrestleMania:

“I would really like the Dolph Ziggler match…mostly what I want is that I want to be featured in a prominent role at Wrestlemania. I think that Dolph and I are two of the best wrestlers in the WWE and so it would be a fantastic match (laughs).”

Daniel talked about the WWE Network version of NXT, compared to the TV version that Daniel was on a few years ago:

“I think this version of NXT is better at getting talent exposure to the WWE fans than our was. The difference was we were actually on TV… if this NXT show was on TV it would be making stars out of people…to where they can go straight from NXT to being a main guy on RAW or Smackdown or whatever.”

Daniel also shared an interesting idea that he had regarding NXT:

“Yeah I’ve actually pitched to go down and work one of the NXT specials against someone like Hideo Itami and Finn Balor or somebody like that…because it’s hard sometimes when you are telling people ‘Hey, you need to check out this awesome Sami Zayn / Kevin Owens match or Adrian Neville / Finn Balor match”’..But if you are to say ‘Hey check out this awesome Daniel Bryan vs Hideo Itami match on the Network’, more people I think would be willing to check it out.”

Check out the show here (or search iTunes & Stitcher: The Mega Cast)…the interview with Daniel begins at around 17:30:
