Former WWE Champion Daniel Bryan rose to superstardom in 2014 thanks to his organic rise as a babyface, culminating in him winning both the WWE and World Heavyweight Championships at WrestleMania 30 after Bryan defeated Orton and Batista in a triple threat match. Daniel Bryan vs Roman Reigns match winner was recently leaked.
Roman Reigns is still engaged in a feud with former WWE Champion Daniel Bryan as is set to defend his WWE Universal Championship against him on this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown. Daniel Bryan has put his career on the line the match, so if Bryan loses the match, he will be done with WWE for good.
According to a report by Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it has been stated that Daniel Bryan might be making his way to NXT after losing to Roman Reigns on tonight’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown.
“The obvious thought would be he can go to RAW, or possibly NXT,” Meltzer stated. “There is an aspect of NXT in the sense Bryan would have a better opportunity to do the style of matches he wants with people he can have those kinds of matches with, especially on TV where he would be the most valuable commodity they have.”
