Daniel Bryan recently did an interview with Peter Rosenberg and talked about having a breakdown during the filming of Total Bellas:

“Oh yeah, I did have a breakdown,” Bryan said. “It was 100% legit and actually I’m very thankful to the production people and probably WWE had a big hand in this of they made it less than it was, right? So I was very thankful for that.” Bryan added, “they were doing that and I was having a breakdown and they did a good job of protecting me on the show, so I’m very thankful to Russell [Jay], who’s one of the [executive] producers for that, to WWE. Like, everybody in their own lives has things that they don’t want shown on TV, but they don’t have cameras around them all the time. So this horrible time in my life, there were cameras around me nearly 24/7 and this enhances these feelings that you have.”

Bryan continued, “So here’s the thing: it was multiple issues at once. It was being forced to retire, right, kind of against my will type thing, but also, you get forced into this. So ideally, in this situation, you would be surrounded by people you love and who love you. And I do love Brie’s family and they love me, right? But this is a different environment. You’re forced to relocate to this thing. And then, there [are] cameras around you 24/7. And then, my wife was on the road full time, so she would leave on Fridays and she would be gone Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, come home Wednesday. Wednesday/Thursday would be days spent entirely filming. And then, she’d leave again on Friday. so I love Brie’s family, but I’m not, like, the closest with them. They are not the people I would go to necessarily for comfort. Like, I want to be near my mom, and my sister, and my best friends, and that kind of stuff, so I was like, ‘okay, I just need to go and spend a week in Washington to just be around and be in this, like, cocoon of people. I never got that week, two weeks, a month, to just be, like, around my friends and family and to where I felt like I could say, ‘help me through this,’ right, ‘and come out better on the other side.’ Now, I ended up getting that because I left John’s house while they were filming. I was literally like, ‘I’m close to the edge and so I’m out of here.’ I went to Phoenix [Arizona] first with our dog, I think. And then, I went to Washington for a month without Brie, right? Before she met me up there because she had things that she had to do and that sort of thing.”
