Daniel Bryan thinks Raw officials are cowards.
November 20th, Raw and Smackdown Live will be competing in three elimination Survivor Series matches at the pay-per-view. During Talking Smack following Tuesday's episode of Smackdown Live, General Manager Daniel Bryan took shots at Raw. Talking Smack host Renee Young asked if Bryan was surprised by Raw officials accepting his Survivor Series challenge. He made the Survivor Series challenge October 11th. Raw accepted the challenge on Monday.
"I think the competitive nature between Shane and Stephanie almost forces their hand a little bit to accept it," said Bryan.
Bryan did criticized how Raw is ran by General Manager Mick Foley and Commissioner Stephanie McMahon. He explained how Smackdown Live is ran differently. Renee Young got in on the cheerleading of Smackdown Live.
"I have a feeling they are also somewhat cowardly. Stephanie and Mick are somewhat cowardly at running their show. Cowards. Cowardly in the sense of, for example, they don't rely on their strictly RAW talent to sell their shows. They're bringing in people from the Attitude Era like Bill Goldberg. We don't need that here on SmackDown Live because we believe in our stars," said Bryan.
Foley responded to Bryan's accusation on facebook Wednesday.
"REALLY? So McMahon/Foley, the duo who booked the first women's main event on #Raw in 12 years, and who have booked the first ever Hell in a Cell Match in #WomensWrestling history are cowardly? Really? Cowardly? Daniel might want to rethink his word choice there. It seems to me the last time he chose the root word 'coward' to describe someone, he was schooled by The Miz. Stephanie and I thought we would have to wait until #SurvivorSeries to humble Daniel and Shane-O Mac - but if need be, we can layeth the verbal smacketh down on their candy asses long before then. Don't mess with the #McMahonFoleyConnection. *Rock's catch-phrase stolen with his permission."
The Survivor Series pay-per-view will feature three Traditional Survivor Series matches. There will be a match for the women's, men's, and tag team divisions. It will be the second pay-per-view since the brand split to feature both rosters.
Talking Smack airs each week at 10pm on the WWE network after Smackdown Live airs on television Tuesdays.
