Daniel Bryan discusses his issue with feud vs CM Punk. The pair fought on three pay per views for the WWE Championship.
When all is said and done Daniel Bryan and CM Punk will go down as two of the greatest wrestlers of the modern era. Fans were lucky to witness the two together in the WWE where they wrestled each other for the WWE Championship on 3 different pay per views back in 2012.
The pair took on each other for the prestigious title at Over The Limit, No Way Out and Money in the Bank. However, despite the calibre of matches they produced, neither of them were the main event; which Bryan rightfully took issue with.
Daniel Bryan discusses his issue with feud vs CM Punk
Daniel Bryan appeared on FS1’s WWE Backstage on Tuesday to discuss his feud with CM Punk.
“This was a period where Punk and I are doing stuff with the WWE Championship against each other, and we’re not in the main event?” Bryan said. “I don’t get rubbed the wrong way very often, but that was just like one of those things. We did a title match once—the main event was John Cena versus my now father-in-law [John Laurinaitis]. So, this is all starting to get weird.
“John Cena vs. John Laurinaitis, that was in the main event, but Punk and I had a title match and it was like this weird thing where we had three pay-per-view title matches. Two singles, where none of them were the main event, and then the other one, we get Kane involved. So, I remember being in these title matches and be like, ‘Hey, let’s go out and really show them.'”
Punk has since left the company. Bryan on the other hand was forced to retire before he made a stunning return. He had another run with the WWE title. He is set to face AJ Styles in the finals of the Intercontinental championship tournament.
