During a recent interview with The Kingston Whig-Standard, former WWE Superstar and current SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan discussed a few different topics while promoting this Sunday night's SummerSlam event, including revealing that he suffered a mental breakdown when he was initially forced to retire from active competition. Below are highlights:
"I had to go out to Florida (to shoot Total Divas) and we're in John Cena's house for four weeks or whatever and there's cameras just on you all the time. I just had this horrible mental breakdown."
"That's what I needed. I needed to get away from all of that and just get out to be by some trees. It's hard for me. I don't do really well in cities, which is crazy given that we're flying in and out of these major cities every week. Brie describes it as anxiety. And she would be accurate. I get this anxiety in cities and places like that. When you grow up in kind of a small town and when you grow up around a lot of green and trees and nature and that sort of thing, sometimes I think it's a little mentally disconcerting to be around this concrete."
