Wrestler Daniel Bryan is hoping to meet Frank Turner and discuss their previously mooted plans for a duet.

WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan has revealed that Turner has got tickets for the WWE show at London's O2 Arena on November 15 and that he wants to meet up with the 'Tape Deck Heart' singer on the night and "see him about this duet!" Bryan wrote:



However, Frank Turner is also booked to play Amos' Southend in Charlotte, North Carolina that night as part of his Stateside tour, meaning their meeting will have to wait a while longer. Even so, Turner has previously stated that he is game for a duet with the wrestling star. Responding to a recent comment by the wrestler saying he'd like to work with him, Turner tweeted Bryan saying: "I'm game!"

In an interview with Digital Spy, the wrestler, who previously collaborated with The Moldy Peaches' Kimya Dawson on 'Captain Lou', said: "I love Frank Turner, an English guy. I would like to do something with him. There's something about his music. I suppose there's a lot in common with independent musicians and wrestlers. How much he's on the road, all that kind of stuff."

He continued: "His music really speaks to me, I identify with it. If I could do something with him, that would be awesome. It's crazy to see how popular he's become. I was at the gym maybe a month ago and I heard a Frank Turner song. I was like, 'Whoah!' I'm so out of tune with pop culture, I didn't even realise that he had become big! It was like, this is my guy, and he's playing at the gym! This is strange."

Another wrestler, Wade Barrett said last year that he would talk to people in the music department of the WWE to see if he could take up Manic Street Preachers on their offer to write his new theme music.
