Daniel Bryan credits a grade school friend for becoming professional wrestling fan.
On Tuesday, WWE 2K announced a Showcase Mode featuring the career of Daniel Bryan. During an interview with IGN, Daniel Bryan discussed how some people find professional wrestling through video games and reality shows like Total Bellas. He went on to explain how he became a fan in first grade.
"I was introduced to wrestling through magazines from a friend. My parents weren't wrestling fans so I didn't grow up watching it. I had a friend in first grade who came over to the house, who had a backpack of wrestling magazines, and he showed them to me and as someone who was fascinated with reading at a young age I found myself entranced with these pictures of these wild men," said Bryan.
In the rest of the interview, Daniel Bryan said fans could look into his independent wrestling career if they notice the gaps in his WWE career on the Showcase Mode.
