Sometimes there’s cities where it’s just hard to find healthy food. You just have to be prepared.

Daniel Bryan

I feel like a lot of fans would like to see me with the heavyweight championship.

My passion is the wrestling.

Daniel Bryan

Daniel Bryan

I keep trying to convince people that I’m OK to wrestle, and I think that’s probably the hard part. A lot of times I’m trying to convince myself, too, that I can wrestle. It’s really hard, because the concussion issue is very subjective, and that’s the part that a lot of people don’t understand.

Daniel Bryan

I always think of it in terms of music. You’re not always going to be a huge rock star in music, but musicians can play until the day they die. With sports, it’s different. You can’t always do it until the very end, and that’s a hard reality of sports.

Daniel Bryan

I had 10 documented concussions, four post-concussion seizures and so, but, with that said, my brain is no worse than your average college football player’s brain, right?

My health is 100% more important than coming back to wrestling. Being a good father is more important than going out there and expounding on my belief that doing more hammerlocks in wrestling is good for the business!

Daniel Bryan

One of the wonderful things about wrestling, to me, is that you can protect people who have had head injuries.

I would read a lot about how to be a dad. I had never changed a diaper before we had Birdie.

The best parenting advice I actually got was from Shane McMahon. He was great with me when Brie was pregnant and all that. He said, ‘When you have that baby, make sure you take care of Brie first.’

A lot of people don’t understand how hard the girls on ‘Total Divas’ work. They’re on the road, the same as the rest of us, and then when they get home, they’ve got to be filming this whole time.

Daniel Bryan

My biggest concern with the whole deal with ‘Total Divas’ and with WWE – and, you know, they want you to be engaged with social media and all this kind of stuff – I don’t want to live my life to entertain other people.

Daniel Bryan

I love wrestling, and I love the entertainment aspect of wrestling, but the rest of my life, I just want to be able to live and enjoy my life. I don’t want to be living it essentially for other people’s entertainment.

Daniel Bryan

For some reason, the fans got behind me, and I don’t know exactly why that is. I wasn’t supposed to main event WrestleMania XXX, but the fans were so vocal about it that the fans had no choice but to put me in the match. I’ve had a lot of lucky breaks.

Daniel Bryan

I have to look at my career as ‘it was what it was,’ but I do wish there was more of it.

Daniel Bryan

Sometimes, things just fall into your lap, and that’s pretty incredible.

Daniel Bryan

I like having a bunch of different experiences. I don’t want to do just one thing for the rest of my life.

Daniel Bryan

I love wrestling, but to wrestle just one style for the rest of my life seems like it would really hold me down creatively.

Daniel Bryan

I like going to Japan where they treat it like a real sport. I like doing the entertainment stuff with the WWE. I really like doing the small venue stuff, like Ring of Honor, because everything is so intimate. There’s different feelings and different experiences, and you have to be good at different things to do all of that.

Daniel Bryan

Wrestling is something that nothing else can replace for me.

Daniel Bryan

WWE was an opportunity to wrestle in front of thousands – in 2013, I did 227 matches, and almost all of them were in front of more than three or four thousand people, with a high of 70,000 plus. It was an incredible experience to be part of that.

Daniel Bryan

People who like hard-hitting wrestling and action, they’ll like me.

Daniel Bryan
