Daniel Bryan Talks About The Day Where He “Thought He Killed Shawn Michaels” in a Training Accident

WWE.com is featuring an article by Zach Linder, Andy Green and Brian Pellegatto looking at the trainers for Tyson Kidd, Natalya, Zack Ryder,Daniel Bryan, Sheamus, Damien Sandow and more. The article features a quote from Daniel Bryan saying he almost killed Shawn Michaels (his trainer).

“One night I nearly killed Shawn Michaels. This was before his return from his back injury. I was trying to do a thing where I’d spring off the second rope onto the top rope, spin and do a hurricanrana. Keep in mind, at the time I was 175 pounds, and that’s a lot of weight to land on somebody’s shoulders. I was trying to do it on Brian Kendrick, and it wasn’t working. We thought Brian was too small. He was probably 150 pounds at the time. Shawn watched us do it a couple of times, and he got in the ring and wanted to do it with me. I go to do the hurricanrana, land on him and he ends up landing right on his head and rolls right out of the ring. We all freaked out. That was the night I nearly killed Shawn Michaels.”
