WWE tried to do an interview (above) with new WWE Champion Daniel Bryan following last night’s Smackdown Live in St. Louis to explain his actions.
Bryan remained silent, simply looking at the WWE Championship and walking off. As noted in our live Smackdown recap, Bryan attacked Styles after the match.
Look back at Bryan taking jab at Lesnar
With Bryan defeating Styles last night to become the new WWE Champion, he will now face Universal Champion Brock Lesnar this Sunday at Survivor Series.
Bryan, who has spoken openly about always wanting a dream match with Lesnar, took a jab at him on Smackdown Live last November during a promo to hype up Styles as the challenger for last year’s Champion vs. Champion match at Survivor Series.
At the time, Bryan was the General Manager of Smackdown Live.
Bryan says Lesnar has a pattern of quitting including deciding to quit WWE and quitting to a “half-ass kneebar” in the UFC. He says Styles will push Lesnar into deep waters. Bryan says when you are that big you can last for about 10 minutes in the deep water. “Brock Lesnar will mentally quit.”
