At WrestleMania 34, Daniel Bryan proved he could still wrestle, teaming up with Shane McMahon. They defeated Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. However, his progress continued, shocking fans with excellent matches on SmackDown. Notably against; Shinsuke Nakamura, AJ Styles, and The Miz. Nevertheless, his greatest success was yet to happen. 

Recently on SmackDown, Bryan defeated AJ Styles to become WWE Champion. Moreover, he now has a new character. This character is excellent and refreshing, and thankfully it has vastly improved the brand entertainment value.

Nevertheless, who can stop Daniel Bryan?

Samoa Joe has an extensive tenure within the professional wrestling industry. He came to prominence in ROH, and had three tenures with the company. Moreover, Joe also made a name for himself in TNA (now Impact Wrestling).

Within these two promotions, Joe earned the; TNA World Championship and ROH World Championship multiple times. Not to mention, numerous other championships. Throughout his tenures he faced off with excellent wrestlers like; AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels, Tyler Black, and many more.

In 2015 Joe debuted in NXT, and would eventually become NXT Champion, a championship he would win twice.

In 2017 Joe debuted for the Raw brand, and since then he has been involved in both WWE Championship and Universal Championship matches. However, he hasn't earned a championship on the main roster.

Recently Joe was embroiled in a feud with former WWE Champion, AJ Styles, however he failed to secure the WWE Championship. Nevertheless, he proved his worth as a contender. Therefore, considering Joe and Bryan's history within ROH, a WWE feud would be awesome.


#2 The Miz

The Miz is one of the greatest performers within WWE. Perhaps even within the professional wrestling industry. Throughout his career, Miz, has achieved a lot in WWE. However, there are some exceptions. Notably, he is yet to win the Royal Rumble. However, with the Royal Rumble approaching, that is a possibility.

On SmackDown, Miz is presently working with Shane McMahon. Their interaction is comedic, yet interesting. However, the outcome is uncertain. Will McMahon team with Miz? Regardless, this interaction is likely to be short-lived. Therefore, what happens next? Ultimately 2019 is the perfect year for The Miz to shine once more. 

The history between Miz and Bryan is exponential, dating back to Bryan's NXT tenure. Being tense and dramatic, their feud generated a plethora of entertaining moments. In particular, their interaction on Talking Smack. With Bryan being WWE Champion, his reign is likely to be extensive. Therefore, with their extensive history, a new feud for the championship would be awesome.
