Thanks to www.usairwayscenter.com and Jeramie McPeek for use of this excellent interview …
USAirwaysCenter.com: What can fans expect from your match with CM Punk this Sunday?
Daniel Bryan: I don’t know what fans can expect. Obviously, whenever I wrestle CM Punk, they’re going to get a great wrestling match. But the one thing that is unknown about this whole thing is that AJ is going to be our referee. So when you put a 95-lb woman in a referee shirt, you never know what’s going to happen.
USAirwaysCenter.com: You two have had a lot of matches over the years, especially the last few months. How do you take it up a notch for this one?
Bryan: Well, it’s interesting. This is a pay-per-view match and it’s for the WWE Championship, so that obviously ups the intensity. I expect to be in the main event of the pay-per-view, so anytime that happens, and you have two guys with as much pride as me and CM Punk, you know it’s going to be intense.
USAirwaysCenter.com: You tweeted recently that you and Punk once wrestled in front of 35 people. Is that true?
Bryan: (Laughs) Yeah, that was in Florida. I want to say it was 2005. We probably wrestled in front of 35 people and we probably wrestled for 45 minutes. We’re pretty far removed from that now.
USAirwaysCenter.com: Is that bizarre to think about now, just how far you both have come?
Bryan: Yeah, it is. Especially when you’re doing things like going out and wrestling at WrestleMania in front of 70,000 people. Or wrestling this Sunday at US Airways Center. I know that’s going to be a packed house. It’s pretty incredible to walk out and see thousands upon thousands of people out there, but not just out there, but into what you’re doing and looking forward to seeing you. That’s a pretty cool feeling.
USAirwaysCenter.com: You guys had a feud back in 2005 in Full Impact Pro on the independent scene. What do you remember about those early meetings, and how have your styles or matches changed over the years since then?
