​Daniel Bryan Reveals His Goals For “Talking Smack”, Says Wrestlers Can’t Say What They Want Anymore


WWE SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan recently appeared on Sam Roberts’ Wrestling Podcast. During the interview, Bryan talked about wrestlers in WWE not being allowed to say what they want anymore, his goals with “Talking Smack” and more. You can check out some highlights below:

On his goals for “Talking Smack”: “So my thing with Talking Smack is, I want our talent to look really good. So for example, Baron Corbin was on the show, not last week, but the week before, he was awesome. Yeah, yeah, yeah. It did great and the key is the show is not about Renee [Young] and I, like, we’re just hosts – we’re just there to bring stuff out of people, to help them.”

On not being able to say what he wants on “Talking Smack”: “Sometimes, yeah. I mean, sometimes, I just say things and then, sometimes in my earpiece it’s like, ‘why are you saying that?’ And then, it’s like, ‘oh’.”

On WWE Superstars not being allowed to speak their minds: “The reason why guys could do that before, like, say in The Attitude Era, because it’s like, ‘yeah, fire me – I’ll go to WCW’ or in The Territory Era, ‘yeah, fire me – I’ll go to a million different places,’ right? Now, ‘fire me – actually, please don’t fire me.’ Literally, I’ve been doing this since I was 18 [years old]. I don’t know how to do anything else.”
