WWE News: Update On Daniel Bryan Not Appearing On Smackdown Despite Advertisement
Daniel Bryan has not been featuring on WWE shows ever since Wrestlemania 35 has passed by. He lost the WWE Championship to Kofi Kingston on that night to take a hiatus from Smackdown. But the reason for the same is still unknown. Some of the sources have mentioned an injury may have caused the same. But it’s still not a confirmed thing especially after WWE advertised him.
This week’s episode of Smackdown Live took place from Lincoln, Nebraska that witnessed a shocking betrayal from Kevin Owens who downed Kofi Kingston with an attack from behind. Apart from that, we have also received two solid Money in the Bank matches from the blue brand that will feature the lineup of Roman Reigns vs. Elias and Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair in a championship bout.
Additionally, the fans in attendance could have been received a pleasant surprise in the form of the former WWE Champion. Local ads have advertised Daniel Bryan to appear on the show in Lincoln. Since he is off from the main show, it would have been happening in a dark segment that is the untelevised portion exclusively reserved for the fans live in attendance.
However, Daniel Bryan did not appear in front of the audience as per the scheduled. PWInsider.com revealed that he was not even present in the building in the first place. So there’s no question of seeing him. Initially, WWE was advertising him in a big match against Randy Orton for the dark main event. But later it got canceled. Roman Reigns and the Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor replaced the originally scheduled duo in that portion.
This is not the first time that WWE canceled Daniel Bryan’s appearance in the post-Wrestlemania season. WrestlingINC.com previously reported how he pulled himself out from previously advertised Live Events of Smackdown. He did not appear on this past week’s house shows in Madison, Wisconsin and Rochester, Minnesota without any explanation.
We would like to mention again that Daniel Bryan has not attended any of the shows since losing the WWE Championship match against Kofi Kingston. With repeated missing of these events, the theory of his neck concussion coming back may turn out to be true. In this case, his pro-wrestling career could be in severe jeopardy. He did have to retire in 2016 due to this. There are still some speculations running whether WWE has again barred him from competing or not after Wrestlemania 35.
