As previously noted here on eWn, the current SmackDown Live GM Daniel Bryan, was a recent guest on Edge & Christian’s Podcast Of Awesomeness. In the midst of the number of topics that were discussed, Bryan provided his take on why 205 Live has struggled to connect with the fans.
Here’s what he had to say:
Bryan: “I think one of the things that they have a hard time with on 205 Live and the cruiserweights is they do some incredible stuff, but do you know who else is doing incredible stuff? AJ Styles doing springboard 450 splashes, right? So to somebody who really knows, okay, the degree of difficulty, they may see Mustafa Ali do this incredible, I don’t even know what you call it, an inverted 450 splash or something, I don’t know, but it’s incredible. But to the casual fan, is that any more impressive than AJ Styles doing a springboard 450 splash? And he’s a main event guy who gets promo time and all this kind of stuff.”
