^ Jason comes on at the 10 min mark
We had the opportunity to speak with Jason Sensation before he took the stage with Mick Foley in Ontario last night. We wanted to get his take on his take on his old friend Daniel Bryan whom he recalled working with in Memphis back in the early 2000’s.
On Daniel Bryan possibly winning the title at Mania:
“It really couldn’t happen to a better person. When he was 19 years old and we were together in Memphis and i was managing him. Even then he was such a modest, down to earth, good hearted, kind soul human being. Not to mention the best…even then the best wrestler in the business. I’ll actually put Brian Kendrick up there with him and say i think they are best wrestlers in the business today. I’m so proud of him.”
On the booking of Bryan up until now:
“He’s such a kind, quiet, down to earth guy who didn’t speak a lot. I thought it was going to be hard for him to get over in the business. I think i was seeing that over the year (Summerslam until now) where it seemed that he had gotten everyone behind him but they still saw that maybe his character wasn’t enough. So i do believe they (WWE) were trying to keep him at a mid card star almost main status but not be that man, just have an extra top guy. He stuck with it and the fans stuck with it. I’m so proud of him because it can get you down when everyone isn’t behind you. Nothing ever got him down.”
In this interview he also shares a story about Bryan helping him get respect in Memphis, he talks about Mick Foley giving him a big opportunity in doing Comedy with him, thoughts on CM Punk, talking the Owen Hart/Bret Hart feud, original plans for his famous DX skit, insight on Vince Russo plus more! 30 min interview worth checking out.
