Daniel Bryan

As technically devastating as he is clinically unstable, Daniel Bryan is the type of modern-day mat marvel capable of holding his own against past masters like The Dynamite Kid or Dean Malenko. But the unpredictable WWE Tag Team Champion didn’t choose a technical tour de force when WWE Classics cautiously approached him on the topic of fantasy matchups. Instead, he opted for spectacle.

“I would trade places with Hulk Hogan in the legendary WrestleMania III match against Andre the Giant,” Bryan said. (WATCH)

It was a curveball choice from a man who was seemingly raised on VHS copies of Ric Flair versus Ricky Steamboat, but not a ridiculous one. After all, what WWE Superstar wouldn’t want to compete in front of 93,173 WWE fans?

“It would have been awesome,” the submission expert said. “It was one of the most monumental moments in WWE history in front of a huge crowd.”

Every WWE fan knows this landmark encounter came to an end after The Hulkster slammed the 540-pound behemoth. So how would WWE history have changed if Bryan went on last against “The Eighth Wonder of the World” at WrestleMania III?

“I would have never been able to bodyslam Andre the Giant,” Bryan said with a cackle. “That would have been the main difference.”
