Daniel Bryan reveals who he thinks is the best in-ring performer in WWE today

Daniel Bryan made his emotional return to in-ring action with WWE back in March, after two years of fighting for medical clearance. 

Since returning, he's had matches against the likes of Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Rusev and AJ Styles - and he also set the record for the longest time participating in a Royal Rumble match back in April, lasting 76 minutes. 

Next week on Smackdown Live, Bryan has the chance to force his way into contention for Money in the Bank, as he takes on Samoa Joe for the final spot in an already stacked ladder match. 

Money in the Bank

The pay-per-view takes place on June 17 and both men now have the opportunity to join Braun Strowman, Finn Balor, The Miz, Rusev, Bobby Roode, Kevin Owens and a member of The New Day in the men's Money in the Bank match. 

The winner of that will then hold the briefcase and in turn, a contract to cash in for a world championship match - anywhere, anytime. 

Should Bryan win the contract, he'd likely challenge Smackdown's WWE Champion, rather than Raw's Universal title holder, to a match. 

Styles vs Nakamura

However, it's not clear who will be holding the WWE Championship following Money in the Bank next month, because AJ Styles will be defending his title against Shinsuke Nakamura. 

Those two have been feuding since before WrestleMania - but with Nakamura picking a last man standing match as the stipulation for their next battle, the challenger could finally get his hands on the WWE Championship.    


The best in WWE today

Speaking recently, Bryan revealed he thinks that the current WWE Champion, Styles, is the best in-ring performer in WWE today. 

"I consider AJ to be the best right now as far as in-ring performance," he told SPORTbible, per Wrestling Inc.   

The Beard also explained how he feels about the match they had after WrestleMania and said that he's hopeful for another chance to take on the Phenomenal One. 


"It was good to be able to go out there and see if I could keep up with him not only physically but mentally because a large part of what we do is mental.

"I actually wish we had more time; the match we had was 10-12 minutes or whatever it was and hopefully soon we'll have the chance to do a solid 30 minutes and do our thing."

Another match between the pair certainly isn't out of the question. If AJ defends against Nakamura next month, and Bryan wins Money in the Bank, we could be seeing them share the ring again very soon.
