WWE Superstar The Miz was recently interviewed by Glasgow Live to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Bryan and Miz’s issues with one another have been going on for years. Miz would constantly poke fun at Bryan when he was medically suspended from competing for WWE.
At the time, it was believed Bryan might possibly never wrestle for them again. However, upon making his return, Bryan quickly found himself in a feud with the former WWE Champion. They had matches at both SummerSlam and WWE’s Super Show-Down.
While speaking to Glasgow Live, Miz reflected on his issues with the former SmackDown Live General Manager:
“The match in Australia, I wouldn’t even call a match. It was a lucky, lame roll-up. It sucked the air out of the entire stadium. You heard the entire crowd, it went silent. At least when I beat Daniel Bryan I knocked him out. People knew that was the finish.
“I beat him at Summerslam one-on-one. My wife and myself beat him and Brie Bella at Hell in a Cell, and that’s all you need. I should be going for the WWE Championship, however, they gave Daniel Bryan, another chance! Why? I don’t know. It’s not like he’s won matches or anything. I’m the one that’s winning. I’m the one who deserves a WWE Title match.”
“There’s no doubting that Daniel Bryan is one of the best wrestlers in WWE history, it’s just that he’s not as good as me. I think Daniel Bryan four years ago was arguably the best.
“Everything has changed since he’s been gone. Now he has to figure out a way to get his trajectory going again. Do I think he’s on that upward trajectory? No, I think he’s just living off of his fame that he had four years ago. I don’t know how to make Daniel Bryan what he believes he is.
“I know I am at an upward trajectory and I am at the best I’ve been in my entire life and that I’m better than Daniel Bryan and every other superstar on Smackdown Live. That’s just my mindset, and it’s a mindset I think everyone should have.”
