“My favorite WrestleMania memory is actually the first pay-per-view I ever ordered,” Bryan said. “It was WrestleMania 12 and it was Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart in an Iron Man Match. It was similar to what my situation is now. Shawn Michaels had a dream and that was the whole sell of the pay-per-view. This is a boyhood dream and they went over 60 minutes and Shawn Michaels won the WWE Championship. It’s something that I’ll never forget sitting there with my friends watching WrestleMania 12.”
Bryan also gave his input on the WWE 2K14 video game:
“It’s actually insane because when you watch it you feel like you’re actually really watching television, just how lifelike the characters look. The cool thing is that they’re bringing so many more characters into the game and a lot of the old school.
I thought the whole 30 Years of WrestleMania mode and leading up with all the stuff from the different WrestleManias was awesome. Especially as someone who’s a fan of history, being able to redo history is cool. Kids can redo the Andre and Hogan match and that’s just awesome. They may have heard about it, but they may not have ever, very seen it. Now they can play it on the video games, they can watch it on the network. Everybody can get into the history of wrestling, which I think is great.”
