Daniel Bryan’s Wrestlemania opponent possibly returning superstar

Daniel Bryan

Daniel Bryan survived the Elimination Chamber match and retained the WWE Championship. While his Fastlane opponent will be known soon enough, WWE has something special planned for Wrestlemania.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about what WWE has planned for Daniel Bryan’s Wrestlemania opponent. Despite Kofi Kingston’s performance recently, he isn’t in consideration for Wrestlemania. It might be one of the returning superstars.

Meltzer said that Kingston is not the plan for Fastlane or WrestleMania as of right now. The story he heard was that Bryan would face someone returning as opposed to any of his recent feuds. The people on that list include  Bray Wyatt, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, Kurt Angle, Undertaker, John Cena, Batista, though Angle is a doubtful name.

There is still some time for WWE to decide a Wrestlemania opponent for Daniel Bryan. So we will have to wait and see who it is.

    When someone throws out the race card because they were not included in a little video while being pushed more than most of the women in that video bar a few, that is not on, and totally unjustified.
    The WWE may very well have not shown black wrestlers the credit they are due (and we all know that seeing as the closest we have come to having a black WWE champion is The Rock who is half black, half Samoan), but they have never ever been anything but fair to Samoan wrestlers, and that is what Jax is. So to suddenly through out some bull tweet like she is being held down because of one bloody video clip is “pulling the race card” when there is no racism.

    And please do not tell me other people in this world have not used that same tactic.
    I once saw a black guy call a white police officer racist because he arrested him for stealing goods, and the police officer turned to him and said “Can you do me a favour, can you tell my wife and child that as they are totally unaware of me being racist, and I think it is important they know as my wife just happens to be black and she might feel threatened by that”. Or words to that effect (the way he handled it was brilliant).

    I will admit, my blanket statement of “People will always say that” was wrong, as I should have said “Some people” .. for that I appologise.

    Yo, really? That doesn’t sound like a fair statement. I don’t know about NIa nor do I care, but most people throw the race card when there’s RACISM.

    I am just guessing when it comes to Undertaker vs Daniel Bryan for the WWE title at WM 35. Not saying it going to happen at all.

  • Sparti Love

    Batista versus DB… Revenge for WMXXX

    What’s the value in that?? Taker has achieved everything. He doesn’t need the championship again, especially to only drop it immediately. Tournaments without storylines always fall flat as well, which is why we don’t have King of the Ring anymore as WWE doesn’t know how to do it in an interesting way.

    Put the belt on someone who will actually benefit from it, not someone with one foot out the door.

  • Luke

    No he isn’t. I loved Kurt Angle in his prime but those days are long gone, and he shouldn’t be anywhere near a WWE championship match. Watching him wrestle now just makes me a little bit sad. He needs to stop.

    The World Champion title has a longer history and is the vastly superior title in terms of relevance, respect and importance. Ron Simmons even says “Damn” to how stupid this is.

  • StoneColdBeckyLynch

    Why would they have one of their hardest working full time performers fight for the title? Nah, we need some part time in there

    People will always throw the race card out there when they do not get what they want.
    Look at Nia a few weeks ago trying to act like WWE were racist for not including her in a video clip or something like that.

  • CC

    That would make sense.

    You’ve got Booker T, you’ve got Mark Henry, but both only held the World Championship. These people are splitting heirs because there’s never been a FULL black WWF/E Champion. Even though Rock was one of the biggest stars in wrestling history, he “doesn’t count”, because he’s half Samoan.

    See, this is what happens what happens when WWE changes a storyline that was started when Daniel Bryan was the GM of SmackDown and Miz was the IC Champion on SmackDown. They should have stuck with the original storyline, which was Miz beat AJ Styles right before last year’s Survivor Series, Daniel Bryan win the Royal Rumble last month, and then Bryan beat Miz for the WWE Championship at WM. Now they booked themselves into a corner with Bryan & Kofi where the fans/WWE Universe are going to force Vince to give Kofi the title shot & belt at WM. If yon’t believe me, just look at how the fans forced him to put the Women’s title on Becky Lynch, put her in the mix with Charlotte & Ronda, put the SD Women’s title on Asuka, then have Becky win the Rumble, when none of that was Vince’s original plan- his original plan was Charlotte vs Ronda, title vs title.

  • Charlie Bronson

    What does Booker T need to do to reclaim his title being a black champion in WWE? All Hail……King Booker!

  • Rinn13

    I would support Kofi getting a run. But at the same time, I find it hilarious and insulting that there are many “fans” now screaming on social media about how, basically, if they don’t have a Kofi rematch at WM and have Kofi win the belt, that WWE is “racist”. Also, said people are obsessed with the notion that they need to have the first ever FULLY Black WWE Champion, because The Rock is only HALF black, and that “doesn’t count”.

    Intelligence is a commodity in rare supply.

  • HBK

    I was thinking it might be either EC1 or EC2, if kurt angle or even kurt angle can’t make it!!

  • CC

    How many times is Kurt Angle returning even though he was just here last week?
    Kurt Angle and even Kurt Angle are both returning, but where does that leave any other Kurt Angle?

  • Darrin Tyler

    Actually none of them.

  • Kurt Angle is the obvious choice here.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I been thinking Undertaker too. They may have him win the WWE champion then retire as WWE Champion. Which means there would be a tournament for the WWE title.

  • RasslinFanBoi

    CM PUNK!!!!!

  • oppa

    Taker is done, Cena is Hollywood and the other names don’t make sense. They only reason you don’t go with Kofi is because you have no plans for him being the champion and don’t want the fans to turn on the show.

  • Kurt Angle, or even Kurt Angle!
