WWE star Daniel Bryan spoke with Jim Varsallone of the Miami Herald to promote the WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. The following are some highlights from the interview, which can be read in full at

Bryan on whether it was more nerve racking to propose or work at WrestleMania: "Oh, I was way more nervous to pop the question,” Bryan chuckled, “way more nervous to pop the question. You would think it would be the opposite, in front of 70,000 people, going out there in your spandex, but absolutely not. Popping the question was way more nerve-wracking."

Bryan on whether Total Divas will mean something to women's wrestling: "I hope it does,” Bryan said. “As of now, I don’t know where it’s at because the audiences are so different, but I would like to think it’s going to bring more female fans to WWE to watch the divas because the divas are really good at what they do. So I’m hoping that cross-section starts coming over. That would be great.”

Bryan on working a Hell in a Cell match: "Hell in a Cell is one of the most brutal matches that you can do in WWE,” he said. “I’ve never been in one. So I’m going to go out there and do it once and probably only once [Bryan chuckles]. I don’t think most of the guys who’ve been in Hell in a Cell matches ever really want to go do it again. A lot of times the top guys end up doing multiple Hell in a Cell matches, but they’re [rough]. Every WWE superstar does want to do it once just to experience it."

Powell's POV: Bryan spoke more about appearing on Total Divas, his notable history in Miami, why losing to Sheamus in 18 seconds may not have been such a bad thing, his beard, the Yes! phenomenon, and more.
