He revealed he has brought it up to several people in WWE and firmly believes there is a possibility of something like this happening in the near future.

The ‘American Dragon’ also shared why he believes WWE Superstars should crossover to other promotions. He said people do not understand the greatness of many WWE Superstars because WWE doesn’t generally put on a pure wrestling product. They are sports-entertainment based.

Bryan said, “If all of a sudden you saw Cesaro in New Japan, people would be like, ‘This guy is the greatest.’ If you put Otis in New Japan, people would be like, ‘Holy cow, this guy is amazing.’ Like, Vader from the 90s type vibe. It’s just a different presentation.”

“It would be a cool and unique contribution in wrestling, as far as giving back. I also think it’d be good for WWE and wrestling in general for them to go and learn at other places,” he continued.

The former WWE Champion also said wrestling in Japan and UK made him a better wrestler, as he understood things to better himself as a performer. “I wouldn’t be the performer that I am today if I hadn’t wrestled in Japan or the UK, where it was all comedy. All of those things add to your depth and when it’s time to put you in a top position, you can do a number of things.H/t Fightful

We 100% agree with Daniel Bryan, but it looks highly unlikely that WWE would work with any major promotion. After all, they’ve got talent from all over, two performance centers, and what not. But at the end of the day, it’s the same sports entertainment presentation and wrestling style.
