Five potential replacements for Daniel Bryan

Daniel Bryan produced a rather emotional farewell last week on Monday night Raw and now WWE needs to prepare itself for life without the leader of the YES Movement. 

It's hard to imagine a time where Bryan won't be rumoured as a mystery returnee or as the missing piece in WWE's plan, but sadly the WWE Universe will also have to understand that Bryan is now out of action indefinitely and this leaves a potential gap in the roster which a number of superstars could step into. 


Sami has been accepted well by the WWE Universe and would be the obvious choice to step into Daniel Bryan's underdog shoes.

He has just missed out on his shot at the NXT Championship and is still yet to cash in his rematch clause if he even has a claim to the Championship that he lost in brutal circumstances.

He will always be deemed the underdog if he goes after Kevin Owens to extract revenge, but there is more to Sami than meets the eye and he will surprise a lot of superstars when he makes the transition full time. 


Styles Royal Rumble debut was one of the biggest in WWE's history and has since gone viral and given WWE the lift they needed. Styles is already being groomed to be a big star within WWE because he has been put in a feud with Chris Jericho. 

It has also been announced that Styles being added to this weeks episode of Raw has seen a huge increase in ticket sales, which is the first time and Independent star has made an impact on WWE's sales. Both Bryan and Styles have the same kind of Independent background and it is thought that Styles is set to make as much of a difference as Bryan once did. 


The Showoff has been lacking in direction in WWE lately with rumours suggesting that he could be close to a WWE exit himself, but a decent story line heading into WrestleMania could change all of that. 

Dolph has the potential to be a main event star within WWE again and it would only take the right opponent to see him make it over the hill again, but it seems WWE are somewhat hesitant about putting Dolph in a big rivalry because much like Bryan, he is an injury prone star. 


The Man That Gravity Forgot has seemingly been forgotten by WWE in recent weeks, after what was a decent pairing between Neville and Stephen Amell, Neville has fallen off the radar again and is in need of a push heading into WrestleMania. 

Neville was once the longest reigning NXT Champion so it is apparent that he has what it takes to climb to the top of WWE's mountain and reach for Vince McMahon's Brass Ring, but will he be given the opportunity?

His size makes him the ultimate underdog, but his skills and talent mean that he is already a step ahead of most stars that step through the ropes, could he be the one to step up?


After what was a brief step up to the main roster, Breeze is in need of a resurgence and this could come in the form of a new style and a new spot on the roster. 

Breeze is not well liked by McMahon, much like Bryan so he would be the perfect person to take his place and show that there is room for improvement and in the process, prove Vince wrong. 

Right now, Tyler's career is going nowhere and he could be sent back down to the NXT roster that he took him years to break out of, this could be the perfect opportunity for him to prove his versatility.
