This relationship was scripted at the time, but it soon became real.
“It actually started as a story line and then we really hit it off,” Daniel Bryan told PW Mania in 2013.
IGN TV: What was your experience like at Comic-Con this year? Daniel Bryan: Yeah, that whole day was strange, because I started off today doing a panel with Hulk Hogan, Paul Heyman -- and then Sting comes out. Is it just like, well, life's gonna throw you the highs and lows?
Then finally we decided, "Okay, he needs the surgery." We're going to go get the surgery -- no, wait, nope! So I would obviously prefer to not get the surgery, but if I'm going to do it, I want to do it as soon as possible, because the sooner I do it, the sooner I get back.
2014 has been a very turbulent year for WWE star Daniel Bryan, as fan support -- and a belief he wasn’t being given the spotlight he deserved -- became a central storyline on WWE programming, culminating in a huge, jubilant win for Bryan at Wrestle Mania. IGN: I'll get out of the way the question that I know you'll have to deal with all day, which is, how're things going? The surgery they're talking about doing is a three-month recovery.
It was soon revealed that within the storyline, Daniel Bryan’s character had been secretly dating Gail Kim.He had intended to present the ring to longtime girlfriend Brie Bella, but actually proposed to her identical twin, Nikki, who is dating sidelined wrestler John Cena.From the back, the Bella Twins are virtually indistinguishable from one another, which accounted for the confusion.three times and WWE's World Heavyweight Championship once, in addition to being a one-time United States Champion, a one-time Intercontinental Champion, and a one time WWE Tag Team Champion as part of Team Hell No (with Kane).He was also the 2011 Smack Down Money in the Bank winner and the 2013 Superstar of the Year Slammy Award winner.
