Daniel Bryan On Kenny Omega: "He Looks At Wrestling Differently Than Anybody Else"

The American Dragon heaped praise on the AEW World Champion

During a recent appearance on My Mom's Basement, WWE's Daniel Bryan heaped praise on Kenny Omega and said The Belt Collector "looks at wrestling differently than anybody else."

Bryan said: "I have a lot of respect for Kenny Omega and it's not just the great matches he's put on. It's also that he looks at wrestling differently than anybody else.

"When you look at say, the Young Bucks, who you'd think of in a similar vein. You can see where the Young Bucks take of wrestling is. It's like a takeoff, a genius takeoff, of the wrestling they loved when they were younger. And mimicking it but also evolving from that and evolving from the takes from that. That's why I think it resonates with so many people, the way that they wrestle.

"Kenny, it doesn't have a previous evolution point. It's just these completely new things that have entered his head that he's daring to try."

Bryan has first-hand experience of Omega's innovation. The two men previously went one on one in PWG back in 2009 and the match is famous for featuring a John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt routine during a break in the action.
