WWE star Daniel Bryan did a recent interview where he talked about his beard and his filmed proposal to Brie Bella. According to PWS on Oct. 9, Bryan said that he had no idea his beard was going to catch on like it did and he didn’t even grow it for his character.
Bryan said that he wanted to grow his hair out and didn’t want anyone to notice when it hit that awkward stage that hair does, so he started growing a beard so people would pay attention to that.
He said it worked because people were so interested in his beard, they barely noticed he was growing out his hair.
Now that he is engaged to Brie, he said he doesn’t know if he will shave it for their wedding. He did say that he would if she asked, but that it was almost out of his hands now. He said that he could only imagine the fan’s disappointment if he showed up with no beard.
He also talked about the proposal, which was filmed for “Total Divas.” He said the film crew knew he was going to propose, but not when. He chose not to tell them and they followed them all the way to the top of the cliff, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, before he proposed to Brie Bella.
He said this was almost like a practical joke on the crew.
