He won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 30 by defeating Randy Orton and Batista. But unfortunately for Bryan, he was not victorious in the main event of WrestleMania 37, where he fought Edge and Roman Reigns.

However, recently in an interview with 6abc, Bryan Danielson claimed his dream was not to main event WrestleMania but to be a big star in Japan.

He said, “My dream when I started wrestling was not to be in WWE and to main event WrestleMania or anything like that; my dream when I started wrestling was to actually to be a big star in Japan because I loved the Japanese wrestling style which is very wrestling-based.”

Bryan also revealed that he also liked the idea because he feared public speaking.

“I loved the idea of being able to go to Japan- you could be mildly famous over there, and then come back and nobody would know who you are, and I loved that idea,” Bryan added.

 

But unfortunately for Bryan, that did not happen. Now, Bryan looks delighted with his move to AEW and feels ready for the challenges that lie ahead.
