Daniel Bryan blasts 'stupid' Megan Miller affair storyline on Raw

If you were groaning during Monday Night Raw this week when WWE introduced Megan Miller and Stephanie McMahon goaded her into revealing she was having an affair with Daniel Bryan, leading to a slap and subsequent arrest of Brie Bella, you were not alone.

Bryan was doing the same.

In an interview with IGN, the former heavyweight champion pulled no punches when discussing that turn of events in the ongoing storyline between his boss and his wife:

IGN: So, I have to ask... You got brought into the Brie and Stephanie story the other day on RAW in a very interesting way.

Daniel Bryan: Wait, by "interesting," do you mean "stupid"? [Laughs]

IGN: Well, you know, it's wrestling... anything can be brought into it! [Laughs] So for you, was that like, "Okay... I guess that's going to be an element"?

Daniel Bryan: Yeah, to me, it's groan-worthy. I don't think it added anything to the story. It was just like, "Ugh!" But, you know, they do what they do, and you just gotta roll with the punches. It's funny, because I feel like sometimes you just have to overcome these things more so than anything else. Like, Brie and Stephanie have to overcome that flaw. To me, that was a flaw in the story. The story was so good, and then here's this flaw in it. But it's whatever. It doesn't hurt my feelings or anything, you know? It's entertainment. It's not real, so okay.

Bryan's opinion echoes that of so many others, including female fans who were disappointed this was the final direction they chose before the big match takes place this Sunday night (Aug. 17, 2014) at SummerSlam in Los Angeles, California.

If nothing else, our boy D-Bry continues being a man of the people.
