Randy Orton Misses Bryan Danielson In WWE
Randy Orton has admitted that he misses AEW’s Bryan Danielson being part of WWE
Despite talks of rivalries and ‘wars’ between wrestling companies, the reality is that many professional wrestlers are friends regardless of company boundaries.
One such friendship is that between Randy Orton and Bryan Danielson, with Orton admitting on Out of Character with Ryan Satin that he misses having the AEW star in WWE, saying the following when discussing his legacy:
“I want my legacy to be that I made sure that the guys like Edge, and Seth Rollins, and AJ Styles and, God, I miss Daniel Bryan. I wish he was still here. But these guys that are coming up like Priest, Theory, the Street Prophets, Riddle, these guys that have all the potential in the world. In some cases, like the first guys, I listed, Roman as well, these guys that can work, and they know the art of this business, I want my legacy to be that I was able to, with these gentlemen, take this business to the next generation and make sure that that new wave of talent knows how to do it the right way, staying true to the art of what it is, and making sure that number one priority is taking care of your opponent’s health that you’re in the ring with. That needs to be number one in every case. I think if that’s my legacy, I’m happy with that.”
Danielson famously defeated Randy Orton and Batista in the main event of WrestleMania XXX to win the undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
