A few months ago Daniel Bryan faced Brock Lesnar in a Champion vs. Champion match at Survivor Series, and going into it there were a lot of questions about how it would work.

Bryan turned heel only a few days before his big match with Lesnar, so some fans were wondering if one of them would be trying to work as a face in the match.

The current WWE Champion was asked by Newsweek what the match would have been like if he was a face at the time, and he said that it would have been completely different.

“It would have to have been a different match. One of the challenges with that match, specifically, from a creativity standpoint is “ok I just turned into a bad guy maybe 5 or 6 days ago, I can’t go out there and be a good guy. Otherwise it’s an ineffective turn.” So how do I go out there and make people want to see me beat Brock Lesnar but at the end of it still have them hate me? And I feel we accomplished that very well [laughs]. It’s funny too, because a lot of people give Lesnar a lot of crap especially from wrestling fans. But man, what an incredible performer that guy is. I’ve been wanting to do the Brock Lesnar match for a long time and I was very satisfied.”

Bryan also went on to say that not only does he want to be more hated than Brock Lesnar, he wants to be the most hated guy in WWE.

“Yea it’s an interesting dynamic because this was my thinking going in and it worked. Get people at first, because I want to be the most hated guy in the company. I want to be more hated than Brock Lesnar. Some people want to cheer for the bad guy. I don’t want them to cheer, I want to be hated. So far I’ve had two jumpers at live events [laughs] and that’s an old school kind of mentality. You don’t want those guys to jump but you want them to hate you. You want them to pay to see you get beat. Or pay to see you get beat up or at the very least enjoy seeing you get beat up. That’s my thing.”
