What was more nerve-wracking for Daniel Bryan: Performing in front of 70,000 people or proposing to Brie Bella?
The former WWE Champion and fiance of Brie on and off screen was asked by The Miami Herald about which he was more nervous about doing, to which he replied:
“Oh, I was way more nervous to pop the question, way more nervous to pop the question. You would think it would be the opposite, in front of 70,000 people, going out there in your spandex, but absolutely not. Popping the question was way more nerve-wracking.”
Daniel also discussed his role on the E! Network’s reality show Total Divas, and the impact the show has had on women’s wrestling. He said:
“I hope it does [mean something to women’s wrestling]. As of now, I don’t know where it’s at because the audiences are so different, but I would like to think it’s going to bring more female fans to WWE to watch the divas because the divas are really good at what they do. So I’m hoping that cross-section starts coming over. That would be great.”
Daniel also spilled the beans regarding the engagement rings he and Brie picked for one another. Brie and Daniel designed the rings “the way we wanted it” after visiting a “great” jewelry store in New York City. Brie’s ring features a non-conflict diamond, meaning it features diamonds which were not obtained in association with human rights abuses, child labor, violence or environmental degradation.
Great to see that Brie and Daniel respect the planet as well as each other!
