Daniel Bryan could face Dolph Ziggler at WrestleMania 31

Having made a long-awaited return to WWE, Daniel Bryan appears to be physically fitter and psychologically prepared to give fans of the industry the change they have been hoping for, for a long time.

The direction WWE took Bryan in at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event on Sunday night in Philadelphia however, did not please fans of wrestling's biggest company.

When he entered the Rumble match and his music hit, it was clear those in attendance were eager to see what WWE had in store for everyone's favourite 'yes!' man, with high hopes of being the last man standing in the match.

Rumble backlash has been fierce

As we know now however, this was not meant to be as Bryan was eliminated shortly after he entered the ring, leaving him no chance of contending for a World Heavyweight Championship Title spot at WrestleMania 31 this year.

As a result, what Bryan will be taking part in instead at the biggest event in WWE has been a hot topic.  During the altered airing of Monday Night Raw this week, there was a certain fellow Royal Rumble match entrant who took to Twitter to confront Bryan ahead of a possible face-off at WrestleMania XXXI.

Bryan vs Ziggler would be one for the purists

Dolph Ziggler, who did not feature on this week's episode of Raw, tweeted what has to be seen as an open challenge for an exciting clash between two-technically gifted stars at the biggest pay-per-view of them all.

Fans of WWE who saw Ziggler's tweet may have thought this match-up was not too strange of an idea, which would have been the case even more so when Daniel Bryan replied with 'I'm in!'.

Where will Bryan fit in WWE's plans for 2015?

Though this may well be all part of a set up by WWE as WrestleMania 31 is still two months away, the possibility of these two popular superstars meeting in the ring at the event is an intriguing one.

This is especially true considering that both Bryan and Ziggler are rumoured to be without a set match for Mania in current creative plans.

Whichever direction WWE choose to take Bryan in following his long-awaited return is of huge importance to not just the company, but its fans too.

WWE have a lot of options for one of the biggest names in the company at present, but to have Bryan involved in a story line which goes down as badly as his short stint in the Royal Rumble match last Sunday, is something which must be avoided.
