WWE officials are always looking for a big surprise in this match.
That match is the Royal Rumble, which is right around the corner. A new report has surfaced online that states that Bryan Alvarez noted on a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Live that someone within WWE pitched the idea of having former WWE Champion and current SmackDown General manager Daniel Bryan win the Royal Rumble.
This led to word getting out about the pitch and they decided to put bets on him winning the match. Thus, this led to a huge shift in the betting odds to favor Bryan.
Keep in mind that Bryan is still not cleared to wrestle as of this writing.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has reported in the past that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon has made it clear to Bryan that Dr. Joseph Maroon will be the person that makes the final decision regarding Bryan possibly being allowed to wrestle in WWE again.
Meltzer notes that the angle between Bryan and Shane McMahon is not designed to lead to them having match against each other.
Keep in mind that things could change and there is talk about Bryan being allowed to work a limited schedule in WWE if Maroon clears him. If WWE doesn't clear him, then Bryan has made it clear in interviews that he wants to wrestle again in October once his WWE contract expires.
Bryan has made it very clear to the WWE and to fans that despite what the company's doctors have said to him in the past, he wants to step back in the ring again to wrestle in the near future.
No matter if this is with the WWE or not, Bryan is adamant about wrestling once more, but he will most likely have.
If you recall, earlier this year, Bryan teased wrestling Cody Rhodes, who is the ROH World Champion and also competes in New Japan Pro Wrestling. The former WWE Champion was having some great matches in Ring of Honor before he signed with WWE.
The former WWE Champion has been an underdog for his entire career. From his days on the independent scene to when he arrived in WWE. Although the company wasn’t fully behind him at first, he has overcome the challenges that were put in front of him and became a fan favorite.
Bryan was forced to retire last year due to his history with concussions. Despite that his run on top in WWE was short-lived, he no doubt made a mark on the history of the sports entertainment company.
