The man who sparked the Yes! movement and set the wrestling world on fire actually lacks ambition? The answer would appropriately be…yes! At least according to a test WWE gave Daniel Bryan.
Bryan made the revelation during an appearance on the “Why Not Now?” podcast hosted by Amy Jo Martin.
The former Smackdown General Manager said WWE tested its top superstars to see what made them tick — in hopes of recruiting athletes with similar traits. So what did Bryan have that set him apart from others? Well, nothing.
“I got my test results back and the lady was just baffled,” Bryan noted. “She was like, ‘you have the lowest ambition score I have ever seen!’ In percentiles, I was in the bottom one percentile for ambition. And she was like, ‘how on Earth are you successful at this?’ And I said, ‘I don’t know – I just really love to wrestle.’ So yeah, I have to push myself sometimes to be more ambitious.”
Bryan added he’s the type of person who simply accepts things when they’re thrown at him. He doesn’t necessarily lay out goals for himself which can create challenges.
“I’m constantly having to remind myself, like, ‘hey, if you want to get to the next level where I want to be, you do have to do some pushing here.’ And so yeah, that’s a constant thing that I struggle with,” Bryan added.
