For quite a long time now, the speculations are flying high about Daniel Bryan returning to in-ring action in the WWE, sooner. The ongoing storyline angle between Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon has become quite a personal one. Both of them are having differences of opinions on Smackdown Live regarding the future of Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn’s future in the WWE.
The conflict began after Shane McMahon decided to hijack Raw without letting know the general manager. This was taken forward in the weeks to come to reach a bad position. Shane got his personal vendetta against the Canadian brothers getting the better of him leading the announcement of tag team match. Owens and Zayn’s career will be on the line with the commissioner himself acting as the special guest referee of the contest. Bryan will be there as the second referee to provide backup, though.
Quite expectedly, the decision was not fair from a competitor’s perspective, and Daniel Bryan was not happy with it. So, cagesideseats.com has suggested that a huge heel-turn is in-store for the prodigal son of the WWE. We will get to see more of it after reaching the Clash of Champions PPV where the mentioned match will take place.
Also, this could finally be culminating the much-anticipated in-ring return for Daniel Bryan against Shane, at one point. Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter recently gave positive updates about it. According to the veteran journalist, the most popular superstar of this generation might be seen competing again at next year’s Summerslam.
Apparently, the WWE officials might have moved away from their earlier conclusion of not letting Bryan compete ever in the WWE. With the continuing bad blood between the commissioner and general manager of Smackdown Live, it is likely that they will compete in a match at one of the upcoming dual brand PPV. As per Meltzer, Summerslam from Brooklyn, New York will be the most likely place to see it.
The source also revealed that the head doctor, Joseph Maroon allowed Bryan to wrestle, finally. It will take some time to get over the ring rust for him after which he will be back at Summerslam. Following this, WWE will give the superstar a lighter schedule to work in to keep him under their wings.
