Bryan Danielson (then Daniel Bryan) won the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 30, and Matthew Rehwoldt recently recalled Sami Zayn’s reaction to the win. Rehwoldt was a guest on Developmentally Speaking and talked about being backstage and seeing Zayn, who is a close friend of Danielson’s, pick up the win.

“I was at WrestleMania 30 when the whole Daniel Bryan thing [happened],” Rehwoldt said (per Wrestling Inc). “I think I still have a photo of Sami Zayn who was with ‘NXT,’ watching Bryan, who was like an old friend of his, win the world title. I have a photo of him watching from the tunnel. It was actually really cool.”

Rehwoldt was most recently working for Impact Wrestling as a commentator, and announced earlier this week that he is now a free agent and interested in a potential in-ring return.
