There has been a lot of controversy this week about me mentoring Daniel Bryan on WWE’s new show, WWE NXT.
I’ve read a lot of interviews, blogs, ect. about the matter and they all seem to be asking the same thing. "Why is The Miz mentoring Daniel Bryan when Daniel Bryan has wrestled all over the world for 10 years plus?"
It’s come to my knowledge that some members of the WWE Universe think they know everything about WWE and what it takes to be a WWE Superstar. They think that if a guy does well in the independent minor leagues, then all of a sudden he should be in the WWE.
They think that if a guy can main event in front of a hundred people at a bingo hall, then he’s ready to main event at WrestleMania. Just because fans on the Internet say you’re ready doesn’t mean you really are.
Just because a fat guy with no teeth who sits in the front row, buys your T-shirt and says you’re the king of wrestling, doesn’t mean you really are.
What the WWE Universe doesn’t understand is there is so much more then I can describe in a single blog involved in being successful in the WWE.
My job is to make Daniel Bryan a star in the WWE, because let’s face it, if you look at a picture of him right now, do you think STAR?
No, Daniel Bryan looks like my accountant … ordinary and bland.
Maybe if he had The Miz’s charisma and look, he would have been in the WWE by now. Don’t hate on me because it didn’t take me a decade to get a WWE contract and go down in WWE history to be the first Superstar to win the United States Title and Unified Tag Team Titles.
Don’t get me wrong, Daniel Bryan has all the talent in the world, but every wrestler has weaknesses. And that’s what my job is, to find his weakness and make him the biggest star possible.
I just hope Daniel Bryan doesn’t believe himself what these ignorant members of the WWE Universe believe about him, or WWE NXT is going to be a nightmare for him.
