While some of our desi stars are head­ing to­wards Hol­ly­wood, World Wrestling En­ter­tain­ment (WWE) Cham­pion Daniel Bryan aka Bryan Lloyd Daniel­son nurses Bol­ly­wood dreams.

The 34-year-old Amer­i­can wrestler, who was in the Cap­i­tal to an­nounce the WWE Live In­dia event on Jan­uary 5 and 6 next year at the Indira Gandhi In­door Sta­dium in Delhi, says, “I hear the ac­tion se­quences in Bol­ly­wood movies are just great. I have never con­sid­ered act­ing, but wouldn’t mind star­ring in an ac­tion flick.”

The wrestler, who’s a favourite of the crowd, has done it all — be it head­lin­ing pay-per-view events or win­ning the cham­pi­onship belts. “Wrestling is one thing I re­ally en­joy; the en­ergy and the surge you feel when you en­ter the arena and all the fans start cheer­ing, it has no match. With the chants, you are not alone, you’re part of this sys­tem and that is what keeps me go­ing,” he says.

Talk­ing about his first ever visit to In­dia, Bryan says, “I am thrilled to be in In­dia. Peo­ple like Bret Hart (Hit­man), who have been my he­roes, have al­ways raved about their vis­its and so far my ex­pe­ri­ence has been amaz­ing. I vis­ited a few places in Delhi on Tues­day, sat in an auto, and also vis­ited a mall. The ex­pe­ri­ence at the mall was out of the world, as thou­sands of fans were there to cheer for me. It is great to see how ex­cited peo­ple are about WWE in In­dia.”

About his tryst with In­dian food, Bryan says, “I loved the masala dosa that I had for break­fast. I’ve also tried a few cur­ries with rice and I think this food suits my palate. I love vegetarian and spicy food and In­dian food brings them to­gether beau­ti­fully.”

The show in In­dia will fea­ture WWE su­per­stars like John Cena, Dean Am­brose, Shea­mus and Big Show.
