Greatest Royal Rumble left Daniel Bryan with a bright red chest due to chops from Roderick Strong … but he says they just helped fired him up.
Bryan was interviewed by WWE.com and said, “I haven’t wrestled Roderick Strong since 2009. This is the first time we’ve seen each other and the first thing he does is blister my chest up.”
Adding, “Not that he’s an old friend, but he’s an old rival. And I see him and he starts lighting me up and then it brings that fire back in you. And then you start to feel it a little bit more.”
Watch the full interview below, where you can see just how happy Daniel is to be back.
