During a recent appearance on WWE Backstage, Daniel Bryan spoke on being frustrated with the WWE during his WWE Title feud with C.M. Punk because none of their three PPV matches gave them the opportunity to show what they could do. Here’s what he had to say:
This was a period where Punk and I are doing stuff with the WWE Championship against each other, and we’re not in the main event? I don’t get rubbed the wrong way very often, but that was just like one of those things. We did a title match once — the main event was John Cena versus my now father-in-law. So, this is all starting to get weird.
John Cena versus John Laurinaitis, that was in the main event, but Punk and I had a title match and it was like this weird thing where we had three PPV title matches. Two singles, where none of them were the main event, and then the other one, we get Kane involved! So, I remember being in these title matches and be like, ‘Hey, let’s go out and really show them.
