Interesting to hear his thoughts on the 18 second loss at WrestleMania and the groundswell of hardcore fan support for him. He does bring up a good point regarding Sheamus: They're overdue to have an actual match together without booking shenanigans.
Lots of really good stuff in this interview.

Not only should Bryan's fans who made the trip be mad, but so should Sheamus's. His recent SmackDown matches proved he can work with smaller guys (Ziggler, Jericho) in competitive, involving matches. He hasn't had that emotional climax that comes with achieving the big belt because the WWE decided to go Kane/Chavo for their opening match.

This interview really helped sync in how idiotic a move it was to make that match so short. If there is ever a PPV where Superstar athleticism and in-ring storytelling should take precedence it's Wrestlemania. They wasted half a year's story buildup in 18 seconds. Do that shit for the Diva's match which has almost no build or significance not for one of your Main Event titles. I guess Creative thought the PPV was called "Rock vs. Cena" and not WRESTLEmania.
Best part of the interview: I had no idea they signed Chris Hero! See you in a year....hopefully.
We'll stick with the MAIN War Games rules, since later versions were gimmicked up and defeated the point. One big cage, over two rings that are next to each other (though usually there's a gap just big enough that you can stuff someone down.)
