Daniel Bryan Felt "Detached" During WWE WrestleMania 37 Main Event
"Maybe it's a sign this is the time to let go of being a full-time wrestler"
Daniel Bryan revealed during a recent interview with BT Sport that he felt "detached" during his WrestleMania 37 main event match against Edge and Roman Reigns.
"It was really bizarre. Just really really bizarre," Bryan said. "I mean, it's been nine days now since it happened and it's taken me time to fully process what the experience was like because it wasn't like a normal thing. It was really weird. I felt very out of body in it. It was so weird. When I'm wrestling I feel everything and I feel like I'm really enjoying it... This was weird. It was almost like I felt detached.
"And it was like I was out there and it was so strange in fact that before the match started and I got this really weird feeling and I was like, 'Oh no, is this what it's like before you die? Am I gonna die?' And I was like, 'Huh, well okay. If that happens that happens.' But it was just a really bizarre feeling and I don't know why or how that happened. But it was unlike pretty much anything I've ever felt while wrestling before."
Bryan noted he is still trying to work out why he felt that way, but he believes it may be a sign that he's had enough of being a full-time wrestler.
The former WWE Champion added: "I haven't watched it back yet, to be honest. I don't know if watching it back would really help figure out why I was so detached. I'm not a bigger believer in like signs. Most people think of me as this hippie-dippie kind of thing because I'm an environmentalist but I'm really not. I really love science and reality-based things. So, it was interesting, but it was like maybe it's a sign this is the time to let go of being a full-time wrestler. Which is kind of what I've been thinking for a while... The odd detachment was like 'Woah. Either I'm going to die or maybe this is just a sign that this isn't the same type of fulfilling that it was before.' It's interesting, I don't know. I just said I'm not hippie-dippie but I've been trying to meditate on it and talk to the friends that I'm close with like, 'Hey, what is that?''
