Recently, as per the report by Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer, Daniel Bryan was said to indulge in a new feud with Roman Reigns. He was expected to challenge the big dog for a championship match at Royal Rumble 2021. Now, it seems like the match between the two isn’t happening as Bryan is fighting in the main event match.
Meanwhile, the multiple-time WWE Champion recently revealed how he dealt with a depression amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. He stated that two books helped him cope with depression. The first one being ‘Lost Connections’ by Johann Hari and the second one, ‘The End of Mental Illness’ by Daniel Amen.
On one of the episodes of Total Bellas, Bryan spoke on his visit to Shaman regarding depression issues. The WWE superstar said, “I think you should go see somebody that you connect with to talk to about depression and understands it. Why the shaman specifically works for me is because I have a natural guard up against therapists. I’ve never gone to a therapist where I’ve felt in tune with the therapist. When I went to the Shaman, it’s weird because we’ve got cameras around, but midway through, even before we (Bryan and his wife Brie Bella) went into the sweat lodge, I wasn’t even thinking about the cameras being there.”
