WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan explains what drives him to be vegan in new PSA

Share |

Daniel Bryan, WWE Superstar and vegan, has joined forces with peta2 to create a PSA on what drives him to be plant strong.

Bryan, AKA "The American Dragon," turned to a vegan diet after developing several staph infections which led him to a doctor who recommended the change in diet as a treatment option.

He told peta2 earlier this year:

“With WWE, just being on the road all the time, your immune system just gets worn down. In 2009, I ended up getting three different staph infections and two different other skin infections. I went to the doctor … He gave me a couple options of what we could do but one of things he said that helps out his patients a lot is trying to go vegan. I said I'm open for anything at this point … So, anyway I started going vegan then, and this whole year my energy levels have been great, I haven’t gotten any skin infections. Right now I’m 198 lbs which is the heaviest I've weighed since 2003 … I'm stronger right now than I've ever been … I'm dead-lifting more than I ever have before."

If you’re a fan of WWE, watch the video below, take the vegan pledge, and enter a competition to win some autographed Bryan goodies. And if you’re not a fan, why not take the pledge anyway!
