ESPN.com is featuring an interview with Daniel Bryan where he talks about his health since returning to the ring for WWE this past April at WrestleMania 34.
“Every single match I’ve had since I’ve come back, I felt good afterwards. Health-wise, I felt really good until this weekend. I did a full European tour where I wrested every night, and the hardest part about that was missing my baby more so than anything else. But physically I felt great.”
Bryan also joked that at age 37, he’s feeling the bumps even more.
“Then this week I did something and it just reminded me I’m 37 years old. We wrestled Saturday night in Pensacola, Florida and then had a four-hour drive to Albany, Georgia and I don’t know what happened, but I got out of the car and I’m holding my back and thinking, ‘Oh my gosh, what happened?!’ Realistically, I want to wrestle until I’m 70. That’s a goal to people that sounds insane.”
Bryan also addressed some dream matches he’d like to have in WWE still.
“I actually do have a list of guys and it ranges from guys like AJ Styles and Goldberg to Johnny Gargano and Roderick Strong, who are down at NXT. I want to wrestle AJ, I want to wrestle Shinsuke Nakamura, I want to wrestle Andrade Cien Almas because I love Lucha. So Andrade is a true luchador, who main evented arenas in Mexico as a luchador and I want to go out there and I want to wrestle him. I have all these dream scenarios in my head where I would love to do this and that. I think that’s one of things that’s makes me so passionate about wrestling — the variety.”
